my first Ford

The 06 is not only my first Mustang but first Ford in 20 years of driving. I'm probably only going to be in the US for 5 years (I'm from Northern Ireland) and I wanted something American. I'm also hooked on the V8 sound after owning TVR in Ireland for 8 years. Also the new Mustang looks great and it was a test drive drive that really sold it - a lesson for dealers like Champion Ford who offered a test drive in an e-mail and when I turned up refused to give me one. I ordered from Legacy Ford in Rozenberg after a quick test.

06 GT Tungsten with quicksilver stripes, Prem with red interior, FSAB, stickshift. Lightning Performance 62mm TB, WMS CAI with Ram Air box, Kooks Long Tube headers, X-pipe and Magnaflow back system. Diablo Predator tuner. Tokico D-spec adjustable shocks, Eibach Sportline springs, BMR adj panhard. Stern ST-1 Beast 20" x 8.5" & 9.5" staggered wheels in Hyperblack with Nitto 555s, 255/35 & 275/35. 12" Phat antenna.

My 06 is my 4th Mustang. The first car I bought (not handed-down) was a 1970 Coupe. Followed by a 1978 that I used for my Winter ride when I lived near Chicago. Fel out of stangs and into Jeeps for awhile. After 2 CJs and a 98 Wrangler, I got a 1990 Convert Mustang. I saw pictures of the s197 and was interested, but it wasn't until I saw one in person that I knew I had to get one. Almost got an 03/04 Mach 1, but I drive an hour each way to work, and was alittle big and tall for that body style. I drove an 06 V6 a week before my birthday in August, and ordered my new GT. I absolutley love this car, and it is by far the best built Mustang, if not the tightest Ford ever. I was Ford tech for almost 20 years, so I knew to hold off for the first year, and man was it hard to do!

Never owned one and never intended to. I was a "Mopar or no car" guy. But I made the mistake of taking an 05 for a test drive. That sold me. At the time Dodge has nothing worth looking at. The Charger is an overpriced boat and the SRT-4 is fun but too import-ish for me.
