    I had to order my car too! Had my dealer buddy do a national search, and found only 4 California Special 401A cars in the entire country! I get compliments on it everywhere I go.

    I always get positive comments on the color. It seems like car people like it but normal people it isn't flashy so they just ignore it.

    Rare? Or unpopular?

    I guess I would say both. Guard is one of those colors that never looks the same way twice. It is constantly changing under light conditions. I find myself looking at my car all the time because of this. I personally like the way my car looks early in the morning. This pic was taking around 9:30 in the morning.

    With this color, it is hard to identify it after it plows into innocent bystanders and then takes off...

    -Cop: What color mustang was it?

    -Bystander: it was gray. No, wait... Green? Or was it a washed out dirty black? I don't know..

    -Cop: Okay ma'am thank you.

    -Cop to dispatch: All units be on the lookout for an orange mustang that was just involved in a hit and run.

    I didn't like that color the first few times I saw it. It has since grown on me. It was probably that way for a lot of people. I've only seen a handful on the road since 2015. My color (DIB) was all over the place. For a while, at least 50% of the cars I saw were DIB.

    " Your honor, this ticket says black Mustang. The officer obviously pulled over the wrong one, since mine is green."
    " CASE DISMISSED!"

    Guard does get a bit extra paint. its low sales figures were the reason of course. I absolutely love mine. Base GT pp with recaros. As mentioned earlier in the thread.. imo its the lightest s550 setup and has all the key stuff. 6 sp, pp, 5.0 cloth recaros. = win

    I have lots of pics on IG @5abivt if you want to see different angles and stuff. Absolutely killer color i cant believe the attention it gets ! just cant wait to put my 3pc forged summer wheels on it and lower it some more

    If you're looking for a used Guard wait 6 odd months till the Bullitt comes out and people will be trading up their Guards.

    Actually, I should be picking this one up at the end of the week if all goes accordingly.

    2Rqs9br.jpg

    Out the door, it's below NADA/KBB. GT 6MT, Premium, Performance Package, optional subwoofer as well. Ceramic interior though ( would have loved saddle, since the Miata I'm selling is saddle on green )

    The worst is it has a front license plate so, I'll have to pick up some plugs - or, hope the top plate of the frame was never drilled into the bumper.

    The only opinions that matter are from the people who actually own them.

    We know how cool the color is.

    ;)
