Of course, the little devil on my shoulder shouted for the v8, and he threw logic out the window. :run_over:
V8... good choice... that is NOT throwing logic out the window!

LOL, well I think its a good choice too. Logically, however, I can get the passing power I want in the V6 and I don't typically race, so ......

Congrats!! There is nothing quite like the looks of a Mustang convertable, that car is simply beautiful. Great color combo!!!! I like the spoiler delete and no add-on pieces. It gives it a clean look. Ordered mine the same way, a coupe though. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!! Quite like 1964, there is a Mustang for EVERYONE!!

Nice ride, I really like the kona blue. Mine is having the bumper repainted because of a stained front bumper due to bird droppings. It makes me wish i would have held out for my v6 order.

Kona and black would have been my other color choices if the husband and I hadn't fallen in love with the Performance White the night we test drove one. The only one Jones Ford had in a V6 base manual was white and it grew on us

Having a SC rally sounds like a great idea. Would be fun

I'm back to the drawing board with weighing my options...sheeeeesh...
Nape, I got mine for a tad over $31,000 (good deal, not great) including tax, title, and tags. Price the GT Premium Convertible against that and look at your savings. Lots of play money there! But the GT owners can give you better numbers or you can get your dealer to lay the 2 out. Good luck!

If you don't need it, why spend the extra cash? Just asking.......

Hey, Old Shadow (not so old, really) - welcome to the club.

With the Kona Blue, you get to have the lighter colored roof - good for you! Agree with everything you posted - our cars would look like peas in the same pod except for color differences!

Have you hooked up an iPod to the USB connector yet?

Thanks Rowdy! And I am in absolute agreement. Mustang has a version to suit everyone's needs. Hard to find a club that scans the owner spectrum like this car does.

Tom, When I looked at your vert, I knew I was going to be very happy with the style and interior. Had to change color so I wasn't a copy cat! lol! My son had his iPod connected and was in awe of how smoothly it worked. Now I have to buy one. Of course, just day 3 and I'm still in awe!

Love the car (kind of partial to the color combo myself.) Excellent write-up, Old Shadow. Couldn't agree more.

Was that $31k before taxes, tags, etc.? That seems like a GREAT price. Mine was $29.6k out the door but I got the MCA, EP, comfort, security, rear camera, axle.

CD, that price was total out the door.

Wait, you got the EP and all those other options for less than $30,000???? That is an incredible buy in my opinion. Is it a Premium?
