Wannabe Stang Owner

I am probably the biggest wannabe out there. Not many weekends go by that I do not drive by the Ford dealer to "look at all the pretty horses." However, a stroke of good luck is starting to happen. My wife "promised" me that I could eventually get one. Here are the specs I think I want, if anyone has any suggestions, please add them.

2006 or 2007 GT Premium Convertible, 5 speed Auto
Exterior - Tungsten Grey
Roof Color - Parchment
Seats - Medium Parchment
Radio - Shaker 1000
17" Premium Painted Alum Rims
Convertible Soft Boot.
Wheel Locking Kit
Anti Theft Perimeter.

I am not exactly sure of the Convertible Boot Cover, will it match the Parchment roof?

This is an odd color combo, but I think it will look sharp, what do you think?

I am replacing a 1995 Thunderbird LS (V8) with over 160,000 miles on it. I am extremely good to my cars, and have had this car since it was a year old. I do all my own maintenance, is the Mustang V8 pretty easy to get a wrench on, so to speak?

After 7 years of school and 10 years driving the same car I think it is time to start thinking about treating myself to a beauty. I will hopefully be ordering this car in early 2007. Are there any changes on the horizon (Besides the Shelby). Is the 2009 model going to change dramatically, I know it is early to know.

THanks for all of your help. I have truly enjoyed your site!

Change the wheels to 18" bullits or fans :eyepoppin
My humble opinion thinks there will be no difference for the 07's due to Ford's money woes.

which rims are the Bullits? Are they the standard rims? The brushed ones?

64W's 18" bright polished aluminum.
The fans are the 18" 64E's polished aluminum.
Here are some pictures:
Here is a pic of the fans:

I know about the individual taste and all. I have seen the color combo I like only one time, and it stuck out to me as extremely sharp.

But, I just wanted some opinions, not that they ultimately matter, but I just wanted to know if there was a huge objection to tan over grey.

Is this color combo to feminized? :rolleyes:
Heck no, grey goes both ways :laughlitt

Gas tank fill problem and popping struts should no longer be an issue and certainly not on the 2007s. Shakers look like they may continue to be a problem, but I've been lucky so far (knock wood). CDC classic chin spoiler is a nice addition (and about a 5 minute install). Mutiple exhaust options out there--headers, catted-x, ,cat-back, axle-back--there's a lot you can do. And don't forget a CAI and tune!
Some (not all) stations still give us 06 ers some grief filling up.

Here is a little more information (just found it) on the 07 models:

Also for 2007, a GT/CS (California Special) will be available with a GT/CS tape stripe, hood scoop, side scoops, and a unique front fascia. Inside, the GT/CS will have heated two-tone black and grey leather and suede seats and the rearview mirror will have an integrated compass. An intake cover will dress up the engine bay. The GT/CS will be available nationwide as either a coupe or convertible.
