Unhappy Mustang sadness has set in

I am today mourning the farewell of my 2002 Mustang GT. Yesterday I traded her in on a brand new 2012 Kona Blue V6 6MT. I really love the new mustang, but when I was driving the old girl up to the dealership, I had the same feeling one gets when he is taking a beloved pet to be put down. Now I know my baby isn't getting destroyed, but it is like the end of an era for me. My garage no longer echoes the bellow of an American V8, and for that I am saddened. Rest in peace sweet princess.

Well I guess a congratulations is in order. Nothing beats the sound of a V8 though. You will be happy with that car I am sure.

It will find a good home man.

It's a Mustang GT. A Ford product. Need I say more?

It's ok at least you still got a mustang, but you got to admit that blue sure is a pretty color!

I feel you on this one. That V8 is A true Beauty in White. I hope the V6 gives you as much joy as the V8 did.

I have a 2010 Kona Blue V6 and a silver 2003 GT. Hands down I prefer the 2003 GT with its V8.

The 2012 has the new 3.7 liter with 305 hp so it´s probably faster than your old GT, but still there´s nothing like a V8 Mustang.

But the newer one looks nice. I'm sure she'll treat you well

It's all good. I trade my 2003 GT in after a seven year run. The car didn't even hit the lot. One of the services techs bought it the same day that I traded it in.
