Hi all, my name's Jordan, and I am just on the brink of moving to BC. I hope to be there for August. I'm moving to Langley, and I'm very interested in buying a 2005 Mustang GT.

I was wondering if you could tell me the pros and cons of owning a Mustang GT, and what it's like to drive in the Langley/Vancouver area?

Thanks,

Jordan :)

Vancouver is very beautiful, and a lively town. The only bad thing about the GT is that the gas prices are climbing. If you don't mind paying a little more for gas, they are worth it. They are not the best in winter weather.
Good luck with the move!

thanks :)

I don't think the gas prices will bother me too much, as here in the UK we are paying more than double the price it is in BC! So I welcome the gas prices hehe.

Yah I heard about the winter, I was thinking about buying a cheap car to get to work and back in the winter.

They do a good job of keeping the snow off the roads, it's the ice that is the killer, especially in a rear wheel drive. I think you will like it there, but, of course, that depends on what you are use to. Where in the UK are you coming from?

You will find Vancouver rarely gets snow in the winter but lots of rain. So, driving a Stang shouldn't be a big issue.

Im from a little place called Northamptonshire, quite busy. It's near London, but slightly more rural.

I've been to Vancouver a few times, but I've only really experienced it in the summer.

I've been to London once. Very cool city' Lot's of history and sight seeing.

Re pros of a GT - power, handling, fun, attention getter, exhaust sound

cons - gas mileage, back seat not good for much, handling on snow and ice,
