  2. Mustang Adds Rev-Matching, Colors, and Classic Special Edition in 2019

    It would be an understatement to call the original Mustang a sensation, but so excited were dealers by Ford’s latest creation that they were tripping over themselves to create owners’ clubs and local special editions. One dealer special in particular, inspired by the '67 Shelby GT notchback...

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk

It's one of about 1500 black 08 bullitts made, not sure how many of those made it into canada where i am, but i'm sure its no more than a few hundred. The dealer has it listed for...

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    So early this month I was in two accidents with my GT/CS. The first accident wasn't my fault. Someone decided to merge into my lane not caring that I was there. Crunched up my side scoop and mirror. When I was trying to get the person's insurance information he offered me $70 to settle...
  9. Bridgestone Blizzaks Are On! **Pictures**

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Just thought I'd post some new pictures after swapping out the wheels for the season. Hate to put the Forgestar CF5's away, but the Hankook's can not compete with the Blizzaks during the colder months. As mentioned in a previous thread, I am running H & R 25mm spacers to clear my Brembo...

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    For those of you that have a 13+ GT/CS you do not need to remove the fog lights from the bumper like they state. I actually didnt have to cut anything off the bumper at all. The bumper fit perfect with the air charger and pipes installed. Just wanted to throw out an FYI about this for future...

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Hey, so I've had my 2013 gt California special for a year now, and just found out my wife and I are having another baby, so as much as it breaks my heart to do it, I have to sell my car to get something bigger. Just went to look at trucks and they offered me 30,000 for trade in value. This seems...

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    Well, I wrecked my '09 California Special last week . . . introduced it to the back side of a guardrail after sliding around a curve at the beach.

  16. Brembo brakes or CS package?

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Hey guy, I'm looking into getting a new car and while I was on Ford's website, I noticed that I couldn't add the brembo and CS package together. I wanted to know if that was forced, or if that was just how it is on the website? I really like the CS package's visual appeal, but I hear a lot of...

    5.0L Talk
    Hi, I am looking into purchasing a California Special but I was online and noticed that you could buy the decals and the trunk cap to match the California special, and I came across a website that will send a GT/CS authenticity for 45 dollars. So my question is, how can you tell the difference...

  19. Bought a 2011 Mustang GT/CS Yesterday

    I just bought a 2011 GT California Special yesterday and I have to say I'm pretty pumped. I went from a 2002 Pathfinder, which died on me just before Christmas, to this so it's quite a step up. I've never owned a Mustang,or anything this nice before, so I'm hoping I can find tons of info here...
  20. 2012 GT CS Here

    Got this car 3 weeks ago and absolutely love it! Traded in my ricer for it, and I do not regret it at all. I prefer the grilles with the fogs in them and i'm thinking about swapping it out. What do you guys think? will the 2011 GT grill with fogs fit the 2012 CS?
