it's a freaking supercar for god's sake. then again if you aren't happy with the color you won't be happy with the car. i have a tungsten mustang so i'd love it.

I have enjoyed his post over the past year and enjoyed following his GT being customized. He doesn't spout B/S.

You know GTNOS, you're absolutely right... Sure we'd all like to have more $ but I am generally happy with what I've got. And if someone else has the means to buy a $150,000 car, who are we to tell the guy what to do.

I think most of this car is built by Saleen, or it may be Roush. Your typical UAW person does not have much to do with it. Any supercaris going to have high maintenance.

Again my vote is go for it.

Ordered 4/26/05. Picked up June 11, 2005. 05 Mustang GT Premium Coupe, 5spd, Performance White, with red accent leather (ICAP), Shaker 500, IUP, active alarm, side airbag, spoiler delete. MODS: Baltimore Street Mods 10' red stripes and red rocker stripe. window tint. K & N aircharger. Pony Package fender emblems. Added 18" Polished Alum. Bullitts Hurst comp shifter

Aw crap I had the Parnelli Jones pegged for you ..Oh well

No offense to the Ferrari Fans, of which I used to be a major one , ...but ..unless it's an Enzo or a vintage like the Daytona Spyder ...kinda bored w/the style...(I Know Blasphemy) ...Ditto on the Lambo's ....The stangs are fine in tungsten...too bad the GT's didn't have some red accent on the inside...to offset the tombstone exterior ....Honestly if it was white w/blue stripes ...or the heritage color ...would have just posted the GT when It got here....but hey I enjoy all the varying POV's ...BTW ...like most domestics ...no question they are chintzy in allot of area's but to me it's part of the charm...Look @ all the old Muscle cars & crazy $$$ they go for not to mention what Original GT40's, A/C Cobra's ..Hemi's ...Boss 429's etc..those cars were downright deplorable in so many area's ...yet collectors "pony" up big $$$$ for them

White GT500 Vert / Blue Stripes- I'm waiting.....

again I'll say it to be more clear, the reason you are getting a 'deal' on this fine car is because of it's color. No person in their right mind would have a GT in that color, it's just not right IMHO.

and ps. you don't take a car like this and paint it


'06---GT Deluxe 'Casper" IUP, shaker 500, auto, 17" bullitts, white/light graphite

retro '69 351 hood an scoop
