I like the Red Candy Metallic but my 5.0 will be a DD and Silver will be easier to maintain for DD duty. If I were buying a 5.0 as a toy I would really have to consider Red Candy.

I never thought I would get a red one either. Tbh, id never seen the candy color and was diametrically opposed. I wanted the Kona to put a white stripe on. But Then I went shopping with my dad... and the dealer produced this beautifull V6 Pony in Candy Apple... My father and the dealer made me an offer I couldnt refuse.

Before you all go thinking Im some rich daddys boy-

And this is actually kind of a cool story as well.

I didnt get great grades in middle school. As,Bs, Cs. So the day before I started high school, my Dad took me out to dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. As we were finishing our steaks he said, "Son, Ill tell you what. If you graduate with a 4.0- Perfect, Straight As all the way through high school- Ill get you a new American Made car of your choice."

To me, that meant MUSTANG

Fast forward 3 years. Going into the last quarter of my senior year. Midterm grades come out, and Ive got a B+ in Biology. My dad takes me down to the dealership and they already have my car on the lot. We take it for a test drive (The dealer is a friend of my dads) and when we get back to the dealership, my Dad says "Wouldnt it just suck to miss out on this because of 1 B+? And by the way- a 3.9 is not a 4.0"

So I spent the last quarter of my senior year studying while my friends were ditching, drinking, and going to pool parties. But I got that 4.0 (Double entendre intended)

I think Im gonna start a thread in the main forum about this

I don't know what you're referencing with that quote up there...

I'm sorry, but I find that the reason "you win trophies" because of Torch Red Laughable, it has nothing to do with your car being Torch Red.. how about all the modifications you've done to her and made her look sweet?

Why hate? This is exactly the kind of crap why the OP started this thread.

The candy red looks good. The S197s look good in any color, though.
My favorites are the LL, GO, and DHG.

I had a black V6, and now a redfire GT/CS. The Redfire was too good of a deal to pass up...but I still think I like the black better. Then again...I do like the eye catching appeal of the redfire, and it has definitely grown on me since I got it.

I almost didn't want to go see it when my dad told me that he saw a nice looking red GT at a local dealership, but I was impressed when I got there. The metallic aspect really makes it pop.

Default Vista Blue

I dont see alot of GT's running around in Vista Blue, I think the color attracts alot of attention.

DCAR is the best color in my opinion... when I was shopping for my GT, I really wanted to get a Torch Red GT/CS however they didn't make them. So I 'settled' for my second color choice, the DCAR GT/CS which has now grown on me.

Freshly washed and waxed, nothing looks better...

My Race Red 2012 5.0 GT gets noticed wherever it goes with the white racing stripe down the middle, the hood scoop, the large rear wing and the Shelby GT 500 Axle Backs it frequently gets called a race car by the young kids and the older bunch always turns to look.

Dark Candy Apple fan here. I originally wanted a black or vapor silver CS, but after seeing DCAR in person, I changed my mind. This color in the sun in fantastic and I've gotten several complements on the color alone.

Sorry, but you have to go back to at least '08 for the best color; Windveil Blue...

My most favorite color in recent history was Lava Red...too bad it ended up having such a short run, that was an awesome color!

I like my windveil blue!
