Well, I have moved on

It was time for a change. We loved our 2007 GT, the 2011 V6 was good, and the 2012 GT was great, but time to get something different.
Traded for a 2015 Civic Si. As you know, not nearly as fast, but sure fun to drive. It's only rated at 31mpg on the hwy, but I got 38 today.
My next stang will be a 03-04 GT, when I find the right one.

What have you done!!!!!

Just kidding. Looks like a fun car. I wouldn't mind having a Focus ST as a DD and keep the stang for ripping around on the weekend.

Congrats on the new car. I too went a different direction, and get 30 mpg highway, but a bit different

I don't think I can go back to 4cyl and front wheel drive, but if fuel cost becomes an issue, I can see myself biting the bullet to get a sipper. So you decided to get a ricer, did you consider a Focus? That car's come a long way...

Mileage was a factor. The reality is I was so paranoid to drive and park the car anywhere for fear something would happen to it.
Hard to get the kids in and out.

I did look at the focus last year and would have got one, but could not find a Titanium in stick, and they were not building 14's anymore. The 15's were like over 26K.

I got the Si for 20,714

I'll agree that the small 4-cyl sticks are a blast to drive. There's something musical about the sound of a tight well-tuned run thru the gears! It's invigorating to me. But I am still basking in the sound and performance of my GT that I've owned now for 9 months and 11.5K miles. AND IT'S PAID OFF!!!!!!!
