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!

So, is the boot cover complete waste of money? I figured I may use it down the road. This is all inquiry to make an informed order in the future, thanks for all of your help!

No not a complete waste at all!! One can use it as an extra bench seat. Example:

Thanks, the way I looke at it, the $160 it costs to buy the cover is probably worth it in the long run, just to have it, in case I ever did decide to use it.

Also, what if I am in a Parade? Won't I want a place for the Homecoming Queen to sit? :cool:
I use mine all the time. It cleans up the look for shows and cruises. If I'm going to leave the top down all day I like to use it to hide the mechanism on the side.
I have a feeling if I don't order the cover when the car is ordered, that I would likely never order it, b/c I, like many others, will never get around to it, or will forget it.

Plus, buying this car will be dramatic enough for my wife. It will like trying to pass a huge peice of legislation, where a lot of "pork" gets hidden in the final bill. I just hope the wife does not line item veto some of the options I want! ("pork" = options) :laughlitt
