This is my first Mustang as well. I've had a couple of vets, two Trans Ams and a Camaro. I also has mini-van (don't ask :-) and a couple of pickup trucks too. Like this new stang best of all!!!!

My S197 was y first Mustang as well. I've driven only jeeps since I was 16 (I'm 22 now) so this is a great improvement. I've had two Cherokee sports and one Grand Cherokee Laredo that my parents bought from me for my little bro to drive.

Yes, my first. I'm keeping it for a long time too. Whenever it's paid off, the modding begins, so it'll be like getting a new car.

It's my first Mustang to own. Growing up my parents had a 1980 Mustang that I got to drive every now and then.

Yep, my first one also!! I absolutely love her. I've always been interested in the 65-69's. Not much has interested me since then. I had a Z-28 that was fun.....I was contimplating a Vette. Then I saw the commercial with Steve McQueen and I knew that is what I was going to buy!

Peace....The MadMan :smoke:

My 2007 GT is the first Mustang I have purchased and it is the best of my 11 purchases over the last 17 years. My most recent rides were a 2003 Infiniti FX35 w/ 20" rims and full audio video upgrades and a Silverado Z71 completely white-dout with some added bling and 305/55 Nitto Grapplers to make the 4x4 activity more fun. Without question the Mustang gets top honor. My 2007 has been a dream and I am fully taken over by the Mustang fever. The power, ride, rumble .....all of it is fantastic. I had been eyeing the 69 Corvette vert for many years but now that I have joined the Mustang family I can't imagine leaving.

This is my first Mustang. Saw it at the 2003 Detroit auto show and knew i had to have one when they came out. Waited what I thought was too long to find one at first. Then went to a local Ford dealer and ordered my pony. Got her in eight weeks from order date. Have loved her ever since. Did some mods to her and now waiting for the big mod a Saleen Supercharger this winter. Although I try to keep the miles down she just needs to be driven. Love this car....

A 1965 Mustang was my first car, and now the 2005 Mustang hopefully will be my last! We'll see how long I can keep it running!
