Looks great. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. How many miles on it and what price was it?

It has 44,075 when we signed the papers and the price tag was $10,500.

It's fun to drive. I also like to add things here an there so I have found the Mustang offers a great deal visual and performance mods that don't break the bank.

That's a nice looking Mustang. I am sure it will last a lot of years. My 06 GT, I ordered in Jan. of 06, took delivery in April of 06, now it is sitting at 125K KM(approx. 75K miles) and I have not done anything but normal maintenance(oil changes and the major service at 60K miles including coolant flush and stuff) I am still running the original brakes and all other components(other than I am on my 4th set of tires) and the only noise the car makes is a rattle in one of the cats when the car is cold, once it warms up it goes away.

Wow, great deal. $10,000 with only a couple of years mileage on it. I bought mine in October 2007 and now have 94,500 miles and have only put tires, oil change, 1 battery, spark plugs, fuel filters on it. I did replace front sway bar links a couple of weeks ago because I had the front end thunk in my car and put up with it for 40,000 miles before I let someone look at it. I thought it was going to be upper strut mounts from all the reading here but it ended up being front sway bar links.

My car doesn't even have one rattle in it at 94,500 miles now. It runs perfectly. I asked the guys that fixed the front sway bar links to check it over for safety. They said they did and everything looks great. I asked about that main belt (serpentine?) and hoses but they said both look fine. I'm hoping to get 300,000+ miles on this wonderful car. I think the 2005+ Mustangs are really nice cars and well built.
