Vehicle Name Name: People name their Mustangs? Really?
Year 2012
Make Ford
Model Mustang
Color Red Candy Metallic
Packages Base (ie blank slate)
2012 Ford Mustang
2012 Ford Mustang 2012 Ford Mustang
History In 2011, I was planning on buying a used GT Mustang but when I found out the new 3.7L had similar HP figures to pre-5.0 GT and got 30MPG, I went to my ford dealer and ordered a six-banger from the factory to make my own and drive everyday. It was a blank slate with no options whatsoever.

I set out to build a fun car to drive with a retro look that would appeal to not only mustang enthusiasts but anyone who appreciates a clean build. I've had both euro guys and JDM guys say "I don't really like Mustangs but this one is NICE!."

I love barreling down twisty roads in this car and so far its been to 19 states in search of the windiest stretches of asphalt I could find. Over thousands of miles, 90+ degree heat or a foot of snow, this car has never let me down.
Exterior
2012 Ford Mustang Exterior 2012 Ford Mustang Exterior
-Billet grille with custom made matching brake cooler inlets

-GT-500 style fog-lights mounted behind the grille

-Black"camera case" textured deck-lid (painted NOT a decal)

-Cervini functional heat extractor hood

-Ford OEM quarter window louvers.

-I removed the mufflers the first day I had the car to paint everything that wasn't chrome black. If you don't, they rust like crazy.

Interior
2012 Ford Mustang Interior 2012 Ford Mustang Interior 2012 Ford Mustang Interior
-I made a wooden steering wheel out of mahogany and 1/4 aircraft grade aluminum. It took 130 hours and I think it was worth it.

-Custom leather interior with red perforated leather, scratch made door panel inserts, scratch made shifter boot, custom "running pony" parcel shelf and custom fabricated billet aluminum cup holder delete panel. the buttons on the seats are out of a 1967 GT Mustang to complete the retro look.

-Steeda Tri-ax shifter with billiard ball style knob.

-I painted the dash silver and the lettering in the sill plates gray.

Under the Hood

-Airaid CAI

-BAMA 97 Octane Race Tune

-Brake Cooling Ducts routed from fog-light delete panels to brake rotors.

-Upgraded transmission tail mount to a billet aluminum model with polyurethane bushing.

-I painted the block "Ford Blue." It took 5 hours and required an entire roll of masking tape.

Suspension
2012 Ford Mustang Suspension 2012 Ford Mustang Suspension 2012 Ford Mustang Suspension
-Brembo 'GT Track Pack" brakes and 19" wheels.

-Koni shocks and struts

-H&R Lowering Springs

-Adjustable Pan-hard Bar

-Adjustable sway bar end-links

Other
I pulled out some sound deadening and nearly everything in the trunk to save weight.

That's a great movie! Though I don't know if I would want to risk naming my car after seeing how "Christine" killed all those people! Its kind of like going for a swim after watching Jaws. You sir, live dangerously!

Believe me, if I could have bought a new 5.0 I would have but, it was $8000 more than my $22,000 six-banger and I couldn't afford it. My other option was to buy a nicely maintained used 4.6L GT (which went for about $18,000 at the time) and that just didn't make sense considering I could have a NEW car with a similar horsepower rating, zero percent financing and much better gas mileage for only $4000 more.

For the money, the 2011+ V6 Mustang is a great car. Its tons of fun on twisting mountain roads and in 6th gear on the highway I've easily attained over 30mpg.

A 2011+ V6 with very minor mods will drag your 3v pretty easily.

In my 3.7L V6, I've seen 31-32 mpg WITH 3.73 gears, and then easily broke into the 12s about an hour later at the 1/4 mile track. Shame on me I guess.

I would expect to hear that type of comment from the import community. Are you a former ricer?

There is nothing wrong with a V6 mustang or any other for that matter.

Without the V6 the V8 wouldn't exist. Let's not mention how many start with a V6 and later on buy a V8.

Mine's name Romeo, I used to never name cars, we get easily attached to our cars tho lol.

As for the V6 comments, the 2011 V6 is a completely different animal than the 2010-down. Its a legit performance vehicle now.
