    Yep, active exhaust. I pretty much live in Sport+ and the sound is perfect to me. Track is kinda loud. I love being able to start in quiet mode and not shake the whole house.

    At 51 I really don't consider myself a "senior", but I'll go along... Here's my 2020 GT Premium PP1. Ordered October 3. Took delivery November 15. Directly home and put in garage and don't expect to take it out again until Spring here in New England. Can't wait!

    Will be 66 come September. Am taking delivery of my ordered 2020 GT/CS convertible next week. First Mustang I had was a '69 Boss 302. Bought it with the money I made selling my tobacco crop that year. Man do I wish I still had that car.

    I'd say these days the senior status could be well classified..something like pre, early, mid and late with maybe age being the defining factor...At a soon to be 53 I think I'm close enough to be such..not saying it's a title I've longed for but if I count my current health I feel most times like I have arrived lol..funny thing about organizations like AARP is I started getting mailers from them at age 51..sounds like they are putting a feeler out there to do some reassessments of age beginnings of the senior citizen title..

    Don't be in such a hurry. Just turned 66 last month. AARP will bug the $hit out of you. Think they went down in popularity since they supported Obamacare.

    Hi - The wife and I just turned 76 and 78 respectively in January. Other than some achy joints, in particular our knees, we’re hanging in there and looking forward to Spring so we can resume our day tripping in the Bullitt we bought last April. It took all these years for me to finally figure out why I was putting money into an IRA way back when... Bruce

    Hi - You know you’re old when the dealership offers you a 6 month payment plan as the only alternative to paying cash up front... Bruce

    Since member 'hiccup' floated the 'how can we subclassify seniors' sub-topic back up . . .

    At 72 I know what you're getting at about some of the participants here seeming like 'youngsters'. Maybe it's become a bit more apparent having realized that my son turns 49 in a couple of months, and that back in the 1980's when he was into BMX racing all of the kids a few years either side of his age then were all . . . just kids. It's an association that refuses to go away even though he becomes AARP-eligible in 2021.

    As far as trying to establish even rough age groups to subcategories, I think there would have to be some overlap. And that individual perceptions probably have a component in family history of longevity as well as in general health.

    Even though I'm coming up on 8 years of retirement (actually, about a year laid off prior to hitting the Social Security definition of full retirement), I don't give the fact that I'm at some level of senior-ness much thought, much less let age as a number become its own restriction. My Dad was like that, still did things like sweat-soldering his own plumbing modifications at age 90 because he still could.

    Very nice, Jerry.
    Now that I have owned my Ruby Red GT for 8 mos. I am sorta wishing I ordered a color that required less attention to finish. Iconic silver was my second choice. Still questioning the decision about getting the A10 over the 6spd, and not getting the active exh.

    Have fun in that vert!

    Thanks, can't wait to put the top down and make some noise. Less attention is exactly why we ordered the iconic silver. I thought about the 6 speed but I'm getting lazy in my old age.
