Mustangs - 2011, '12 & '13
In June 2010 a Red Candy Mustang at the local Ford dealership caught my eye and I took it for a drive. It had the 305 hp 3.7L motor, it was quick and handled great. I ordered one of my own with a few additional options like the glass roof and upgraded interior
It had a lot in common with my 78 WS6 Trans Am, which I had ordered new in 1978, it was the fastest and best handling car you could buy that year. The new Mustang wasn't as fast as the now modified TA, but it had better brakes and handling - I really enjoyed driving it, so much so it saw some track time.
I was hooked on the Mustang but wanted more power so in June of 2011 I ordered a 2012 Mustang GT California Special
This one also had the optional glass roof
The reason for trading was under the hood ..... the 5.0 V8 is just an awesome motor
It saw some track time too!
Update - August 2012 - another one followed me home
Ordered on June 14th 2012 this 2013 Mustang was built in Flat Rock Michigan on August 14th and delivered to the dealership on August 21st
It's a Red Candy GT and is oriented mainly towards performance, but has upgraded interior, glass roof and electronics package including navigation.
On the performance side it has the Brembo brake package plus the track pack, later upgraded with Ford racing parts .
