My 2011 Mustang GT/CS convertible...

(1/1)

Mach1EH:
Not my fault - really...   ;D

I did NOT want to drive one (as I was afraid I'd like it tooooooo much), but a friend was taking a 5.0 coupe out for a test, dropped by and threw me the keys.

OK, since it came to me, I couldn't say no.

In a word - WOW.

The power, the 6 speed, the seats, the traction, the handling and acceleration in ANY gear.
The next week me and wife were out for a cruise in my 2003 GT vert and I mentioned how much I enjoyed that new 5.0 and am on the fence. (I was debating on the hard top)
where she mentioned she likes us having a vert.

OK then, guess my debate is over; must find out the price for a vert...

I'm on the last couple days of a 2 week vacation; had intentions of building a shed, painting the deck etc etc.
 
The 1st week off consisted of my parents coming over spending a few days, then me travelling back and forth to a Ford dealership to talk #s on a trade.  (the local Ford dealership was not interested at all in my vert and was trying to get it for next to nothing - their #s did NOT work)

I did come home with...
My former zinc vert was driven home by someone later on that day.






had 26 kms when I saw it & the only one to test drive it.  Guess the dealership noticed the gleam in my eye.  She was put 'away' until I drove her home.


at home





Oh ya and the shed floor, walls were completed and I am building the roof today. (painting the deck will be some other w/e.)

I didn't realize the new 5.0 had over 200 MPH on the speedo.  I like some of the changes to the interior.  Nice and clean.

Sweet Ride!  I too have resisted the temptation to take the 2011 GT out for a test drive for fear that I will also want to turn in my 2008 GT for the new 5.0 6 speed :-)   Congratulations and enjoy!!!

That is metric on the speedo on top in white; the MPH on this one goes to 160, in the grey section.

Yep, don't drive one unless you are willing to get one. 
Serious improvement; tho the 08 GT is a great ride too!
