AT LAST ! ! It's finally here...........

My car arrived late 6/3 to dealer, picked up 6/4. It has proven to be worth the wait. I enjoyed my 05 for almost 5 yrs, but I like the 11 soooo much better. I thought I would miss the 05, but I do NOT. Plus I can visit it every time I go to CA to see grandsons, cuz I gave it to my daughter for her birthday.

I want to thank JonnyB for his efforts to keep us informed, and hope he had a good vacation because I know his in box
must be overflowing by now.

Thumbs up

I ordered 3/9, was built 4/8, went to AREA 51...

I have only had it 2 full days but absolutely love this car.
The ride is great, power is good, especially when you hit
3500 rpm, it just pulls, almost like an old 4 barrel carb kicking in. The clutch is lighter than my 05 but very easy to modulate. I know I made the right decision to step up to the new 5.0. I cannot say anything bad about this car, it's just great, well worth the wait.
Just finished washing/waxing getting ready for 1st cruise night Monday- good chance I will be the only 5.0 there ! !

Thumbs up Congrats!!!

Postalworker, Congratulations!!! You have a beautiful 'Stang! Really looks sharp with the nickel luster wheels! Sterling Gray is a really beautiful color! Sounds like you are truly enoying your new baby...please let us all know how you like your new 'Stang. Do you think the car is geared about right with the 3.73's coupled with the lower geared MT-82? I find myself shifting really quick/soon into second gear due to the very low total rear end gear ratio. Sometimes I don't know if I am in second or fourth gear since it is so low geared. What do you think? Really good for quick starts though that's for sure. I totally agree from 3,500 rpm's and up the car really pulls hard and quick and handles like it's on rails. I really like the driving experience so...however we have had a lot of rain/storms which has precluded me from driving the car since I drove it my car home from the dealership more than a week ago. Please continue to update us on your driving experiences and impressions and good luck to you! Congratulations on your 'awesome' new 'Stang! Take care, Jack
