Always wanted one

The Mustang came onto the scene when I was 16 and didn't have the money to buy one -- instead I bought a clapped-out pre-unit Triumph motorcycle. Motorcycles are cheap addictive devices, and by the time I had a regular job and had enough money and credit to buy a new Mustang, they had become very big and ugly (think early '70s) and I got a pickup truck to haul my dirtbikes and broken Harleys. But I kept my eye on the Mustang, had a girlfriend with a lame 4-cylinder automatic Mustang II (I had a Pinto which was faster because it had a 4-speed) and witnessed the uninspiring cars that followed, all bearing the Mustang name. I still remained a motorcyclist, using them for basic transport, touring, drag racing, etc. When the 2005 Mustangs came out, I did a quick double-take. THIS was what I was waiting for! Except for the engines, which -- to be honest -- were kinda tame compared to the Kawasaki ZRX 1200 (also a "retro") which I was ridng on the street at the time. This mildly-modded four-banger was the performance benchmark I looked for. Three years ago I buggered up my left leg and foot in a sidecar vs. automobile incident, which leg me to eventually decide to give up two and three-wheeling. Then I saw the 2011 Mustang GT Premium. The 412 hp race red coupe was just what the doctor ordered for this 63-year-old, so I filled the prescription. I'm 16 again and this time I got what I wanted all along. PS-- this thing accellerates damn near as hard from 60 as my replica Eddie Lawson Replica did.

Welcome to your NEW addiction. I hear ya though on the bikes, I did the same thing. I ended up with 650 Nighthawk and kept rolling from there, have a 2009 Yamaha YZF-R1 right now. Sorry to hear that you have had to put the two wheelers away, but you will certainly love your new chariot of speed


Current: 2011 Mustang GT Premium - Kona Blue - Brembo Brake Pkge - Comfort Pkge - 3.55 - HID - Security Pkge

Will be missed!! : 2003 SVT Lightning - Black
