Hey there everybody! I'm both new to this forum and to the wonderful world of Mustangs. I bought my daughter a convertible Sebring last Thanksgiving and fell in love with the open-air feel of driving (on those rare occasions when she'd "let" me drive) with the top down. I knew I just had to have a rag top. I held off for financial reasons for almost a year then got hit over the summer with what one might call a "bad case of mid-life crisis-itis" and went out Saturday and bought me a used, 2001 Mustang GT convertible, 69000 miles, very good condition, silver. I've attached a picture of me in my new baby on the car lot. I'm getting 2 new tires and a repair to the top and it'll be ready for pick up by Wednesday. I can hardly wait! For what it's worth - I've been driving an Astro Conversion Van since 1999 carting my 4 daughters to dance classes for what feels like forever and I feel that it's about time I did something nice for me! If that's what defines a mid-life crisis, I'm all for 'em!! ;-)
I have a lot to learn about my new pony and any suggestions you have are greatly appreciated.
I'll probably not pimp it up too terribly much (at least not right away) but I do want to get a trip computer (e.g., miles per gallon, miles till empty, speed, etc). I'm looking at the ScanGuage II. Anyone have any experience with this with their mustang? Any other models I should look at? The $170 price tag is cool with my pocket book but it's kind of dorky looking.
We'll I'm going to peruse the web site and see what's out there.
