I previously owned a 2011 GT
base model, manual. I somehow had this weird idea that it wasn't ideal for me, my age, comfort preferences etc, plus it had some minor flaws. The windshield was heavily pitted, the front had some paint flaws and chips that drove me crazy. It still looked, drove and sounded amazing. I couldn't stop for gas without comments and questions about it every single time. It's sort of juvenile but it made me feel good when that happened.
So, weird decision. I switched to a new 14 Taurus Limited with an SHO appearance package. It looked nice too, just like an SHO, all black and every possible option. Heated cooled front and rear seats, Nav, auto high beams, camera, remote start. No key entry and start, you just touch the door handle and it unlocks. It sensed the exterior temp and automatically heated the steering wheel, turned on and off defrost and seats.
*I was bored. I didn't enjoy driving. Going to work was just a mindless 25 minutes of comfort and dullness.
Skipping over the insanity of a solid month trying to find another black GT 2011 or newer, with manual and at least Sync and a power seat *that also wasn't ruined or molested by the previous owner.... I found one- 2014 with 12k miles.
*Now... This morning, -5 degrees out, getting up for work at 5am....I couldn't wait to get into the Mustang, hear the 5.0, shift through the gears and now, looking forward to the ride home.
Looking forward to adding my own personal touches and tasteful mods.
Looking at everyone else's Mustangs on here and not being jealous and ashamed that I let mine slip away.
This car is a motor.... Just a massively awesome motor with some sheet metal around it, and I couldn't be happier!
