I had a week long affair with a new Mustang GT

Rented one black on black a week on vacation and it was highly addictive to drive.

Sad to say that there is no probable way to turn our cars into something wicked fast that handles that well, I got back to my concorde and nearly cried. FWD FTL.

I can't wait to pick up one of these 2nd hand in 2 to 3 years, the acceleration is just ridiculous.

I also raped an SRT8 charger coming off an on-ramp, and demolished a tiburon trying to speed by me. Its not a car for everyone, but it was fairly easy to deal with for a week (even with the little trunk space it had).

Rest of the car was kind of crappy, it only had 5000 km on it and it developed a bushing squeak on the axle somewhere, and the glove box and trunk wouldn't close at times. Still a Ford.

I'll try to upload a photo later.

Welcome to the dark side

Now just imagine that same car with some simple bolt-ons like a catback and some gears

It was nice, but if your car is similar to my friend's 02 GT convertible, its like a different animal and doesn't seem like its the same platform.

Gears would be insane on the car; 3.73's would be perfect, I wish they had a 6 spd instead of the auto I had to rent, got annoying when it shifts during uphill climbs (couldn't choose between 4th or 5th, constant shifts).

It's not the same platform but still the same fun

Intake, catback, gears and a tune can be done in one morning and then you really have a fun ride
