My 5.0 is home!

I received the call yesterday from my salesman at 11am, but due to my M-F 12:30 - 6:30pm work shift I wasn't able to come get it till this morning at 9am. After 2 hours this morning at the dealership I was finally behind the wheel and off to work.

I've only put 65 miles on it today, but this baby can move. Can do 60mph in 2nd in the wink of an eye. I keep having to look down at the speedometer to make sure I am doing the speed limit. When I'm on roads for 35mph this baby is just creeping and begging for more speed. I have the 3.31's and when you push it this baby will push you to the back of your seats.

I'll have more pictures tomorrow when I take it out of the garage. These are all from the dealership this morning.

Nice lookin' car! When we test drove the V6, I had to keep looking down to make sure I wasn't speeding either. And most of the time I was Oops.

Look forward to more pictures of your new baby

Yes, I was originally going to order the charcoal leather seats, but I saw the review of the V6 Performance package Kona Blue with saddle leather seats on edmunds.com (only about a week or so before order date), and once I saw the pics I knew I had to order the saddle color. The first time I saw the color in person was when I picked up my car. And these seats are so comfortable.

I ordered that exact same combo with the Brembo and wheels. Looks like the first thing to do is drop it... it looks too 4x4 with the 19's. Dang.. I thought I could drive it around for a couple weeks.. but that is way too high. Great looking car... you must be one HAPPY camper!!!!!

When you are right up to the car it doesn't seem that high, but I will probably lower in the future not anytime soon because I'm just enjoying driving it. My first mod will be getting the windows tinted, but that might take me a few weeks because I'm really am just happy to finally have it.

Everywhere I go I get looks, and I even saw one guy with his jaw dropped staring at my car as I was flying down the road.

I had to have my baby sit for 6 hours when I went to work yesterday and my boss told me that everyone coming in kept asking who had the purple mustang...it does look purple in the light at times.
