Road trip?

Hey guys, I'm going to be driving from Boston MA to Miami FL, then returning Boston for a week in March. Have any of you drive your mustang for such long trip? should i rent an economy car?
We have two people, my car is 13 GT with 6000 miles on it.

Thx. I found a car on hertz's website, a Toyota corolla only cost $245 per week. The mpg for corolla is 34. I guess renting is cheaper.

I drove mine from Daytona beach, Fl to Ft Drum, Ny in December and it was an awesome trip. I didn't pay all that money for her to sit in the driveway while I drive a rental

You have the best road trip car in the history of creation and you want to swap it out for a ****box for a road trip?

You can easily close in on 30 on the highway in a 5.0 if you're real gentle and it'll still out torque the Toyota on 1mm throttle depression.

Doesn't exist. American girls don't make sense so a course like that would be instant fail for every classmate.

Take the Corolla you'll love it. Just think of all the looks your going to get when they see two dudes in a Corolla in Miami. Awesome wish I was in your shoes. No doubt I'd take the rental car over my stang. Just think of all the money you'll save. You could be spending that money on manicures, rainbow umbrellas and candle light dinners for you and your friend.

I live in Canada and have put my car away for the winter. I am going insane not driving it. I am dream about driving it when I sleep. I honestly think I am going insane. I wish I was in Miami.

I am so jealous. Do you know how depressing it is here in the cold and the snow knowing I could be in my Stang with the top down listening to tunes and just cruising!

Drove from El Paso TX to San Diego and then El Paso to Houston TX. No problems. Nothing like a road trip to really get to know the car. Have a blast!

We have two people, my car is 13 GT with 6000 miles on it.
I just drove 725 miles in one day this past Monday. The car felt great even in some really bad weather. Go for it - don't rent a Corolla. The Mustang makes a great road car - that is my main reason for getting it. Plus the trunk is big and the seats are comfortable. Put the steering in "comfort" mode and cruise away!

I make the trip to Minot, ND to Houston once a year. I love driving the stang all the way down there and once I get there to meet with all the other stang owners from my home town

You can buy a lot of gas for what the rent on that POS would be.

I've gone on a couple of road trips!! From KC to Texas, and one to Arkansas!! On the hiway the stang would get excellent mpg! Aroind a average of 28-30 mpg! I have 2012 GT WITH a 93 race tune and 3:73 gears! Take the stang.... Nothing better than a road trip in a nice looking mustang
