I'll never forget the feeling when I drove mine off the lot. I went in for a test drive on the first really nice Saturday of the year (70 and sunny), not ever expecting to buy it. A few hours later, I was driving it home, with the radio on, the windows down & taking in that "new car smell." It was like I was dreaming. First place I went was to a buddy's house. When I pulled up, all I could hear was him saying, "No way! No way!" It'll be 2 years on April 16, and I still can't believe I own a Mustang!

Enjoy your ride, and treasure these first days! There are many more to come!

Alright! I thought maybe you'd run off on a cross country trip

Haha, after the exam I just took, I think I want to. It's supposed to storm here tonight and I think I have a spot to hide the car from it. So, right now, that is my concern. Bad tests come and go, but my stang is here to stay.

Haha, I will get a pic of me with it soon. It handles heavier than the SHO, but the extra 30lbs of torque makes up for it. Vinyl stripes on the sides. It was so worht the purchase. The shifter is kind of loud, but it is getting quieter the more I drive it. It sounds great for a v6. I'll give you more updates later.

Nice looking car, and color is sharp. You will enjoy the V6 is it better then people think. We have both V6 and a GT in manuals and are both extremely FUN to drive.

Great luck on your new Ride.

Congrats Wally that is one nice looking Mustang. I'm so envious! I've got a 07 GT Prem. Cpe. Redfire on order with a ETA of 4/23. I'm living what you went through. My golf game has even went to hell, can't concentrate. I'm a 63 year old acting like an excited teenager!! I guess that's what these cars will do to you!!! Have fun! Will be posting as mine gets close and arrives.

Thanks stlwagon. That's what is so great about this site. I haven't even got a Mustang yet, and everyone makes you feel welcome, and part of the family.
