On weekends we hunker down at home. It's nuts on those roads on the weekend. It's nuts up there almost anytime, but I'm planning on some backroads runs, just lots of hazards there too, deer, cyclists, etc.
It's a bit of a drive to get there but give Mines Rd. in Livermore a try. You will not regret it. Start on the Livermore side early on weekday mornings. Over 50 miles to the top of Mt Hamilton and nothing but grins. One of the most fun times I've ever had blasting the twisty's.

You guys are both wrong. It’s Leadfoot because it emphasizes what you should be doing when you’re behind the wheel.

Congrats again: beautiful color and gorgeous car.

I'll put that on the list!

Set up an appointment today to get the windows tinted, calipers painted, paint "corrected", ceramic coated and PPF on the entire front of the car, including mirrors. Have to wait till November. I told my wife today, the difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. When I told her the cost of those improvements she said, "Go ahead, you've come this far!" She's a keeper!!!

Very nice and the best colour. My first Mustang (and first car) was a 2011 V6. I had to work my way up to the 350 but I'm sure glad I did :)

When are you going to Track Attack? Start saving up for brakes and tires and track days now because as soon as you are done with Track Attack you will be going to the track every other weekend :giggle:

Been a Mustang fan my whole life, and like many guys, I can finally afford one. I was looking at classics, like a 69 Mach1 CJ, but at well over 100K, it would have been a stretch. Then I found THIS. A brand new 2020 GT350, 12 miles on the odometer. Made the deal and took delivery a few days later. Now, at 63 years old, I am the proud owner of my first Mustang. An absolutely stunning car, comfortable, and well, you all know about this car. So, I have arrived and couldn't be happier!

Congrads. Nice car.
I bought my first at end of July.
I was so impressed with our 2.3t truck, I got the E/B HHP.
It isn't a gt500 , but I'm happy.
Enjoy your new toy, I know I am.

Don't know anything about it! Is it near me?

I have not heard of any change to availability of Track Attack but my year of eligibility it was only in Utah as I recall. Nothing here in CA. Damn shame considering we probably have the highest concentration of Shelby’s in the country and many fine race tracks.
