I looked for 6 months for one. Finally found my 05 Gt last July. I love it. Really wanted red but got Sonic Blue and glad I did. Everyone compliments on the color. I have always wanted a Mustang. Getting ready to purchase new wheels and new exhaust for it. Its like being a kid all over again.

I have had my 06 GT Deluxe about 30 Days. I ordered it in Nov and arrived in about 7 weeks. Vista Blue, 5 speed manual, interior upgrade, side air bags, alarm, and spoiler delete. I have a blast just driving to work!

Default RE: Bragging

I actually got caught thinking about a red '05 GT coupe.... came back the next day and it was gone! Just sort of waited until I was really ready. One day, a couple of weeks ago, I went in to ask if they had anymore coming in and HOLY CRAP there's this vista blue GT Convertible 5 speed with 18's sitting there in the show room. They said they had gotten it in for a soldier recently returned from Iraq and that her had first dibbs but I was next in line. The soldier, to whom I feel greatly indebted in more ways than one, decided against it. Next day I drive away with it.

I'm freaking crazy. I'm a recent transplant from Los Angele to Small-town PA. Never really driven in the snow, never really want a convertible (no hair on my head to keep the sun off...) and I have 4 kids! But I can't help but smile every time I think about getting in my car!

I'm learning a lot from all you guys and gals, so keep up the good work!

Oct. 31, '05 purchase, delivery Nov 7th. Up to 236 miles now, don't want to go over 500 in the first year so need to slow down and save some miles for summer. Added 20" TSW Mondello's w/ 315 x 35 rear and 255 x 35 front TOYO Proxes tires and Magnaflow muffs, that's it. Motor on!

I hate to say that the 2005/06 Mustang "converted" me (all my past cars - (and my current truck) have worn bowties on the grille) but my 2006 Mustang is one hell of a ride. Took delivery on December 12, 2005 and I have no regrets. I got a Premium GT in Redfire Metallic with dark charcoal leather interior. Got every option except the 18" wheels and the Shaker 1000 stereo. I want to upgrade to 18" wheels eventually but likely stock or tastefully chosen aftermarket wheels. The car is amazing and there's little I'd change - factory installed satellite radio would be nice but the 6-disk changer that plays home-made mp3 disks is a close second on the coolness scale.

Two months and 2000+ miles later it still puts a smile on my face every time I turn the key or mash the accelerator. Makes my commute the best part of my work day!

I'm in Houston and there is no shortage of GT's here. I did a "build & price" (Torch Red GT Premium, red interior, manual, shaker 500, and wheels I wanted but I've read many people here don't like the look of them) then searched inventory and found the exact one I wanted 15 miles from my home. To make it even better, I bought it at dealer's invoice. Paid 26.5K. Might consider buying in Houston and driving it home. That would be fun.

I just picked up my GT last week. I love the car. I have already changed the mufflers to the MAC over Axel system. Sounds much better.

Just picked up my second stang around the first of the year. The first was a 79 cobra. This one, a 2006 GT, has much more power and twice as fun to drive. Next I have to decide what changes to make. Louder exhaust is a must, it just doesn't sound like the 60's muscle cars unless you are on the throttle. Problably some louvers if I can find them prepainted. From there some billet interior and exterior, a little at a time.
Any suggestions on the exhaust and where to pick-up louvers? Has anyone had a problem with the louvers coming off? I see that they are all taped on the windows.
