Very nice Mustangs. My favorite is the Mach1. I guess they are not used in the winter eh?

Thx.
My Mach1 I have had since brand new and no she does not see the winter.  I put her to bed early this season as I picked up the vert for a great price mid August.

I traded my daily driver 2000 3.8 Mustang on this vert.
Great trade amount and I am happy with what I paid for the vert.
The topless driving for a few weeks made it worth it.

I work from home and I do still have the 15" Pony rims with Blizzak tires I used on my 3.8.
If my wife is not home and I have to drive, the vert will be used.
No snow yet but I'd better put the winters on soon.
Any other time I will use the wife's car this winter.  :-D

I rust proof both Mustangs.  The garage where my Mach sleeps is not damp proof so WTF.

Be carefull driving the vert on the snow. I lost the driver seat floor on my rust free Firebird after 5 years of winter use. A leak from the T-top and the salt did a lot of damage and now it's stored in the garage until I can fix it.

Cool thx.
I have had a leaky moon roof so I know about that BS.
T-Tops rubbers are different to a whole piece material top.
But yes, she sits in a carport so that is good too.

Thanks for the tip Godfather but I took the car apart and the seals are now in the garbage. The leak came from a hole underneath the seal.
I also had a few classic convertibles and a car with a softop sunroof in the passed and they all leaked. Today convertibles are certainly more weatherproof than classic cars but I will never get another car without a plain metal roof again :)

I have only been to the east coast of Canada once.
I'd say about 8 years ago I drove to Halifax.
Very nice area out there.
I did give consideration to move out there.  But I did not look into finding a job.
Again I was single too, now would be a bit of a challenge.

I love to drive. :-D

Yes I love it over here. I am originally from a big city in France and it's a big change with all this wild space and Canadians are great people, very friendly and open minded. Only one problem, the COLD weather in winter lol. I live here since 5 years and don't have any plan to move back to France.
I have been in Toronto a few times but all I saw from there was the international airport.

Thanks!
I do like the 2005 model & if I did not have the 2003 Mach1, I would definitely have a new model Mustang.

I only picked up the 03 GT vert as it was a great deal.
It worked out between it and a 05 GT vert (used) for sale.
I let the dealers hash it out, and the one selling the 03 GT was willing to negotiate, the other was firm.
Their loss.

Funny enough the 05 GT vert is still for sale.  They have dropped their price to a reasonable amount now.  Too late IMO.

I know quite a few people living in Toronto so if I ever go there for a visit I might pop in and ask for a drive in your convertible  :-D

Standing by the falls in the summer is always cold so I can't imagine how it would be in the winter  :lol:
