On Friday 01/29/2009 I bought a 2009 black on black GT Deluxe. Only options fake hood scoop and Shaker 500 sound. This is my first "muscle car" since 1967 when I made the mistake of buying a Plymouth Barracuda instead of a Mustang.
I paid 24,345 then got $500 back from Ford, MSRP 28,130.
I have been braking it in carefully and it now has 350 miles on it. I was on I 80 in the middle lane passing a slower car on the left at about 60 MPH. A typical clown tries to pass me on the right then when Bozo can't make it he gets on my back bumper; left lane wide open by the way.
I see his dung eating grin in my rear view mirror and became a bit perturbed. I dropped it into third and for the first time I put the peddle to the mettle. By the time I shifted into fifth I was doing 100 MPH and the grinning clown was dust in the wind. OMG it is 1967 all over again.
