this photo is also taken in a darker setting showing shadows and cooling the paint color. I saw it in the bright light and it almost has a creme shade mixed in.

I love it. They look great with black stripes. Ordered one in ghig to have something different. I don't do yellow, red, silver, or white. My current Vista Blue looks great but it looks dirty so easy. New one will be a nice change.

I'm glad that Ford offers it, it looks like a color that says "let's have some fun!", and you sure can't argue with that attitude.

On the practical side, you should never again experience a car pulling out on to a highway from a side street right in front of you, those lackadaisical drivers should see you coming from a mile away!

The Brembo package should be mandatory if you drive Ingot Silver or Sterling Grey, in order to deal with the higher frequency of being cut off

When I first saw pictures of it on the net I almost puked. It looked absoulutely horrible, and I think I even stated as much on here.

My local dealership had a GHIG GT parked out front for a while, and I have done a complete 180. It is awesome looking in person on a sunny day.

Definitely go see one in person first before knocking it

I've ordered my V6 in GHIG. It reminded me so much of the old high impact colors from the 70s. I've always wanted one of those bright colors on a sporty car. This fit the bill so well, it's just amazing. I will be using black accents too, first order is tint and plastidipping the factory rims.

I just traded my 05 Legend Lime green so obviously I like green cars. However, the 2013 GHIG is just too much for me. The Boss looks good with all the black stripes, etc, but even a GT convertible with black roof was not enough contrast to soften the look IMO.

It was the same way with my white GT/CS, but ever since it's been in the shop, I've seen like 4 more of them all like mine, but each has a different spoiler. Looks like I'll be keeping mine stock!

And your AFM username fits you perfectly. Gotta Have It Green 5.0, Grabber Blue 5.0, you're indeed a Highway Star!

But yeah, I thought I would hate the GHIG on the Mustangs as I seriously hate all green Camaros and Challengers (there's a specific reason why I hate them.. Rather not say :nogrinner), but it's actually very nice, especially with the black. The GHIG seems different to me than the other green colors I see out there.

But if there's one thing I hate seeing, it's Bumblebee wanna-be Camaros (seriously, are they 12?) or green Camaros.


That good ol' red (Boss 302), white (GT/CS) and blue (5.0)!

The "louder" colors need the stripes to break up the color, or else it ends up being too much. IMO

I really like it, but I don't think I'd want my car that color. It's too pastel.

Nope not for me, I'd rather stick with some of the classic colors like Black, White, Sterling Grey. But like we say: to each his own...
