  1. S550 Mustang GT or 2007-2009 C6 Z06?

    I just traded in my 2015 Comp Orange base GT with performance pack for a 2013 427 Convertible. It's not a C6 ZO6, but it does have the LS7 in it. As much as I loved my GT, it is no comparison. The C6 Z is a lot faster, stops better, turns better, and looks better in my humble opinion. It...
  2. We are a house divided.. are you?

    It's not a house divided as both are my cars. She drives her Sonata and my DD is a Nissan Altima.
  3. If the import era cameback?

    Yep, I would love to have the imports come back full force. At 36 years old, I do remember the awesome days of the 90's and early 2000's. My first car was a 1994 Ford Escort GT with 150 HP, but it was amazingly fun car to drive. I went through 2 engines and 1 transmission, but it was easy to...
  4. The hardest thing I have had to do....

    OP, I was also in the same situation as you. I found a GT350 with Technology package in Santa Fe, NM while a vacation trip to snow ski. They were going to sell it to me for MSRP. It was real nice and I was tempted. It is a cool car for sure, but not worth losing money over. I have two weekend...
  5. Shift knob for comp orange mustang

    Black shift knob with rally stripes on top and mustang logo on the side. Cloth Recaro's, Mustang logo floor mats, leather shift boot with silver lining, and GT350 steering wheel. I believe I purchased the shift knob from CJ or AM, no adapter, just blue locktite. Make sure not to use the red as...
  6. Advice Sought...To Trade or Not To Trade...That Is The Question!

    I believe you dodge a bullet. I read most of post and this last page made the most sense. When I purchased my 15 GTPP in November 14, I was one of the first on my block and thought I got a great price using X plan. Well, if I had been patient I would have save a couple thousand dollars. Buying...
  7. Well I did it... i effed up my shift knob swap and now need a new shifter.

    I knew I should had responded earlier, maybe would've save you some money. I read your post earlier, but ran out of time on my lunch break to respond. First, don't feel bad. I did some thing similar to my mustang shift knob. My wife purchased a aftermarket shift knob me for Christmas...
  8. From C5 to GT

    I'm no GM fan boy either, but I do love Corvettes! I was lucky enough to have both my C5 Z and my 2015 GT w/PP. I've had my C5 since 2004. 1) Maybe if you have said C5 coupe/convertible exhaust pales in comparison to the GT, stock for stock, the ZO6 titanium exhaust is much better sound wise...
  9. How many Mustangs have you owned, and currently own?

    Two 2007 Shelby Mustang GT 2015 Ford Mustang GT with Performance Pack
  10. thePill's "Official" C7 Z06 Shrine

    Another thread brought by an obvious diehard Ford fan! I would pick a C7 Zo6 over a GT350R any day. I just hope the GT350 and GT350R is problem free, because I will start a thread about how much the GT350 suck on a Corvette thread and see how many like minded people think like me. That's like...
  11. Dad backed into my beauty

    Sorry to hear about the damage to your Mustang. First, it's your Dad and how can anybody be mad at their Dad. Second, it's an accident. It happens to the best of us. I work for an major insurance company, and I personally don't how they report it to Carfax. I handle D/V claims before and it...
  12. How old are S550 owners? What cars have you owned so far?

    36 years old The beginning to the end! 1994 Ford Escort GT 2002 Lexus IS300 2002 Lexus IS300 L-Tuned 2002 Chevrolet Corvette C5 ZO6 (still have) 2001 Audi A4 2005 BMW M3 convertible 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS turbocharged 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 2000 Nissan Altima (DD still)...
  13. [R/T]How Does the Shelby Mustang GT350R Compare to the Boss 302?

    We will be back again in a couple of years. Ford marketing and engineering is doing a great job keeping us coming back to the dealership. I never owned a Boss 302, test drove one and I can't part with my C5Z. However, I wouldn't trade my Boss for the GT350. If I was able to afford both, I would...
  14. GT350R at Road & Track Performance Car of the Year (Updated: Winner!)

    Geez! 7 pages and most of it hating on the ZO6. GT500 had problems! Boss 302 had shifting problems! Hell, my new 15 has a weird thump from the transmission that I worry about! Doesn't change a damn thing, I would still own all the above. So what that some of the C7Z's have heat soak issues, I...
  15. GT350R at Road & Track Performance Car of the Year (Updated: Winner!)

    My money is on the ZO6. It's in Kentucky and at the Bowling Green track! If I had to pick out of these, the Shelby would be second to last behind the ATS-V. It's hell of a car, but all the above are born to be sport and exotic cars. The Shelby is an Pony car and will never out corner a true...
  16. 2015 Shelby GT

    I rather have my old Shelby GT back with 319 Horsepower and paid off! I think the new ones are cool, but a bit pricey. You do have to worry about quality control with the Shelby's like rattling exhaust, faded and spotted stripes, and warped hood scoops. I was on my 2nd scoop before I sold it to...
  17. GT350 vs C6Z

    That made me laugh and throw up a little! Waiving the GT350 banner much! Wow! The arrogance! How does an newly released car automatically beat a car with a track record and racing history... Read C5.R and C6.R and has been in numerous magazines and top drivers choice car. Motor tend & Road &...
  18. GT350 vs C6Z

    Leave him be Sasuketr! We all have our preference. He is clearly not a C6 fan and that's alright with me. Nothing personal! I hope when he is driving his stock GT350 or GT350R or C7 Z51, that he doesn't come across a stock C6Z or C6 ZR on the track or strip. But, He is right, I don't care about...
  19. GT350 vs C6Z

    I haven't change my response. C6 Z and/or ZR1 over both the C7 Z51/GT350 and GT350R. So, I guess I need to get a Corvette Tattoo on arm and cut my mullet. I'm 35 and have both Corvette and Mustang t-shirts. What does that say! It's not about stuck in past! You buy a Shelby for the performance or...
  20. GT350 vs C6Z

    What the hell! You, my friend, are obviously a Ford diehard! Speak for yourself, because I, for one, would never take a base or Z51 C7 over a C6 ZO6 and most definitely not a ZR1. Or you kidding me! It's a base vette. That's like comparing a S550 GT/PP to a S197 Boss 302 or Shelby GT500. I would...
