    Good to hear. I have had a fleeting glance of a Grabber Blue from several hundred meters away, and I reckon the colour looks great. Just like in your photos.

    Have you done any cosmetic mods since you picked it up? Stripes maybe?

    Only cosmetic mod was to swap out the rear decklid as I dislike the faux 'GT' gas filler, much cleaner:

    Thanks for the pic.

    I am surprised the faux filler isn't more popular; I love it.

    Petty’s Garage Mustangs. The One on the right looks like GB. Not sure if the silver stripes suit it though.

    It is interesting that Richard Petty seems to not use black on most (all?) of the rear (truck/boot) cover panel on his various Mustang creations. I'm thinking the same thing for my GB. Two great minds? Ha ha!

    Richard has his own blue color called Petty Blue. Similar to GB but a tad lighter, IMO. I do love his creations. Got to see a Petty Challenger once at a car show when he was still representing Dodge. Beautiful work but a bit out of my price range. :)

    looks amazing.:thumbsup:

    I'm so heartbroken that this color is going away. I had planned on getting an '18 in GB. Why, Ford, why?!?!?:frusty:

    Yeah, GB is stunning IMO. I love the color, can't understand why Ford limits it that much.

    It would have been wasted on the ugly 2018 model. http://www.mustang6g.com/?p=10599
    EDIT:- Okay, so the leaked photos and footage didn't show the new 2018 model in a good light; I take back that statement, although I wait to see what the euro/export spec Stangs look like (probably) without the bonnet (hood) vents.

    In Australia not many people have taken the Grabber option. It is a color that does not always photograph well, so maybe that put off non-North American buyers who didn't have the benefit of seeing it on the earlier models.

    Today I picked up my new Grabber blue Mustang GT/CS from the dealership. Looks even better in person than I thought it would. ZIhmlYl.jpg q2cSDgn.jpg

    i, for one, am happy it's going away - makes the colour more exclusive that it was only about for a year :D
