2020 GT/CS Convertible
I joined a few weeks ago and have been studying up since then. I was researching Mustangs and Challengers trying to decide which would suit our needs the best. We test drove a 2014 Challenger and a 2017 Mustang GT convertible.

After much thinking and talking we decided our next car would be a Mustang, but not that 2017. I really like the California Specials so we built one and took the print out down to our local dealer to see what it would really cost. They asked us if they could find us one instead so I said go ahead and try. Surprisingly they found one with every option we wanted and only one extra. I brought thier offer home to the boss and she asked if I was sure I wanted a black car because we had also talked about velocity blue.

I went online and googled a velocity blue convertible to take one more look at a picture and when I clicked on the picture to enlarge it the computer opened a dealer webpage and the car was for sale. I talked to them today and ended up putting down a deposit on it. Now I just gotta wait to get the money out of our account which could take a week. It also needs to be shipped to us so it'll be a few weeks before we have it.

Thanks for having me on the site. I'll probably be asking a lot of questions once I start driving the car since I won't have a salesman to explain things to me :)

Thanks for having me,

2019 Mustang GT PP1
Bought this 66 from my parents in 78. My first car. Drove it, modified it, raced it, literally lived life with it. Sold it after 42 years. Have owned 3 DD Mustangs during that time as well. I wanted A/C, safety features and to start from scratch engineering a faster/quicker Stang. The day after I sold the 66, I bought the 2019.Fun beyond comparison!!

Greetings everyone!!! Glad to be here! Not new to Mustangs or forums, but new to this one. Purchased a 2020 GT Magnetic Metallic PP1 (soon to have a Whipple Gen5 Stage 1)

The sheer amount of great rides on this forum makes this a very humbling experience.

My dad was always a Ford guy and I naturally followed in those foot prints. However, I was lucky (very) to find my very first car as a 16 year old (1980) in the Sunday newspaper classified <still have the ad we clipped from it>. A 1969 Mustang Fastback that was a steal by today’s market ($700). Yes, it was a solid car with a 302 and very few issues (other than some rust). Cut my teeth on this car and learned lots the hard way. It was my high school car and regret selling it when I was stationed in England (USAF).

Dig the hubcaps!

Going to try and keep this short and to the point. My wife of 33 years reminds me that I could write a 10 page dissertation just to say “hi”.

Why Mustangs? Oh, I’ve had my share of other cars, but I’m drawn back to these cars over and over! A common theme is taking these cars to the edge (and sometimes way over) of daily driven performance modifications. They are so much fun and it really does come down to what makes you happy. They make me VERY HAPPY since I do all the work myself.

Here are some past rides throughout the years. (it's not even half of ones I've owned, but some of the more memorable)

Turned from a 1/8 mile and quarter mile aficionado to a corner carving maniac! Open track events and instructing green students – not sure if it can be explained in a few words. Helping those that want to enjoy their rides as much as I do in a safe and exhilarating manner is priceless! Also, there’s nothing like 10/10ths racing wheel-to-wheel with 25 other competitors for 20-40 minutes at a time!

2014 GT500 - pulley and tune only (way too much attention!)



I'm absolutely super happy with the 2020 GT (auto). GT500's were nice, but near Houston - the clutch had to go! Driven manuals for 30+ years, but the way this thing shifts and downshifts - it's a whole new experience!

With the Whipple - I'm sure it will be worth marrying (don't tell my wife!).

Anyways - glad to be here and hope to pass along information gathered for many, many years.

Hello from Flagstaff AZ, not new to Mustangs like most of you but new to this particular forum. I have a 2011 GT M6 Track Pack and I just picked up a 2016 GT350 yesterday. I am plenty familiar with the Coyote but the Voodoo is all new to me so I am looking to gain knowledge and some expertise as time goes on.

Hey, Blue here. Just bought a 17' GT in Lightning Blue and joined the forum yesterday. I had a bad experience with a Grabber Blue 17 GT at a crappy dealership in Houston and posted a thread on it. Hopefully that'll give it's new potential owner some insight. Anyway, I look forward to interacting with and learning from you folks, can hopefully positively contribute to the collective and maybe find some cool locals to hang with here in the greater Orlando area.

**EDIT - Not only did I have the color wrong (I called it electric blue, not lightning blue.....thanks HoosierDaddy), but then I realized I spelled "lightening" wrong too. This has been an epic intro lol!

I'm pretty sure you've had more Mustangs than I've had cars lol. As a fellow Joneser (born 1954 to 1965....yeah we're not Boomers!) I have to say congratulations! Most of our generation come from humble beginnings, but true to form most of us have done well over the years because of our fighting spirit and bootstrap mentality.
I'll be watching your threads for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Hey everyone! I'm Mike from Schaumburg, a suburb of Chicago. I joined a while back when I still had my 3v Mustang but I knew the days were numbered with the old reliable 3v. I ended up picking up a clean 18K mile 2016 Mustang GT Premium with a 6R80. The previous owner added an Edelbrock Supercharger, 3.73 gears, Borla ATAK Cat Back, and some aesthetic mods like a Trufiber cowl hood, CDC rear spoiler, and blacked out EVERYTHING. As of now, the only plans I have for it are some Steeda Progressive springs, and Velgen VMB9 wheels. It is still on the Edelbrock canned tune so a dyno tune is also in the plans. Thanks for welcoming me!
