Well, I had to compromise to get the wife onboard, but it looks like the new Mustang thing will become a reality this summer.

The compromise will be getting the less expensive V6 model, as opposed to the V8 GT, and waiting a couple of months to order it (I want a very specific combination of colors/features that none of the local dealers seem to have, so I'll have to order it from the factory). The GT would have been great, but this makes more sense, I guess, at least economically. It certainly beats sleeping on the couch for several months.

So at some point this summer, I'll have my torch red 2005 Mustang with red/black leather interior, all-wheel disc brakes with traction control, automatic transmission and 6-disc CD changer.

Should be a fun drive down to KC for the next banquet weekend.

That's freaking awesome. I'm jealous. Naturally the V8 would be a f*cking dream but still, a 2005 Tang is so bad ass, god! Look at the bright side, you won't be spending as much money on gas as on the V8.

Yeah, that's one of the key considerations. Besides costing several thousand dollars less, it will get better mileage and be cheaper to insure. I'll only have one car (the wife doesn't drive), and it doesn't make much sense to have a V8 gas hog as my sole means of transportation.

F'sho. I'm sure even the V6 won't be very cheap to insure, but that's the sacrifice you have to make to drive a tang.

Actually, it won't be that much more. I already checked with my agent - even the GT would only have been $25 more a month. I figure the standard coupe price increase won't amount to much.

Insurance is one of the few aspects of life where being an old fart is a good thing, plus I get a 15% accident-free discount in June (knock on wood).

I'd love to. If any of my lotto investments pay off, I'll get five of them. But reality must intrude on the dream.

Besides, this car will be a cop magnet anyway. Having one capable of breaking the sound barrier would only enhance that. :spock:

I have a 2002 Mustang GT. You might want to rethink the v6 over the V8. It is a few bucks more but there is a definate differance in seat of the pants feel.

I was waiting till 2006 when the Cobra or Boss version comes out with the IRS suspension system. Seems to work a lot better at the track.

Here are a couple of sites that might interest you.

http://bradbarnett.net/mustangs/timeline/05/05/stripes.htm

This site allows you to see what your new mustang would look like with a stripe kit on it.

www.corner-carvers.com

They arent specific to mustang but there are some mustang enthusists there. They have a search function so if you have some question look there first. Also read the wiki cause they eat people alive. But if you are at all into thinking about tracking your car for a HPDE then they have a ton of knowledge to give out.

Have some pictures of me at the track with my '02. Just trying to get the pictures down to a smaller size and I would post them. If anyone have any hints pm me.

Not trying to be negative, i just think later you'll wish you were able to wait on it or get a V8, i wonder if the v6 is a dog cause my sisters 2001 v6 is slooooow. These look like heavier cars too. It's your money, they are nice, im just a car buff that would liek to go all out on the model i wanted if i could or rather wait.

Man, just tell her it's a V6 and go ahead and get the V8.

"Yeah hon, the engineers at Ford have actually incorporated 2 spare cylinders here on the side of the engine. See, right there? That's so you'll have a spare in case one of them was to lose compression. You know I only want whats in your best interest sweetheart and I couldn't stand the thought of you being stranded somewhere because I didn't go ahead and get those spare cylinders....."

I have to go shopping Thursday to get my son a washer and dryer for a house warming present. My wife comes up to me today and asks if we can stop by somewhere and get a new car while we're out. She wants a mini van to haul the grandkids around.

I just looked at her and said, uh, no.

That extra safety (for her) costs a few extra bucks. No amount is too much when considering your wife's best interest. :thumb:

And yeah, the mini van sucks. I'll have to figure out a way to not get it and make her think it was her idea.......not that she is the boss of the house or anything....

I'm insistant on that particular interior, which is why I'll have to special order one. None of the dealerships in the area have any (either that or the ones they get in get bought instantly).

And I think you're right about the red being better in the summer. I don't want to get barbequed getting into a car with a black interior.

If I had another car, I might consider it. But I'll need the old one right up until the time I get the new one.

Plus, I hate dealing with people.

Besides, my current vehicle is only 2 years old and in good shape. I shouldn't have any trouble getting a good price. According to Kelly's, trade in value is over $10K, and I only owe $5.5K.

If the dealership is willing to give $10k, an individual will pay $12k. I dunno - maybe the logistics would be difficult. I just hate to see friends giving away that much money.

The logistics would be a pain in the ass. If I sold the old car before the new one came in, then I'd have to rent a car until it did. That could definitely eat into the savings.

And again, I REALLY HATE dealing with people, and don't have a sales mentality. I think I'd rather get jobbed by the dealer a bit than deal with a bunch of douchebags calling at all hours and bothering me at home.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I try to avoid using manual transmission since it's a royal pain in the ass.

I have a 64 and a half that I have been doing a frame up resto on for the lsat 4 years. I am 2 years from being done with it.

Also, I just sold my 97 Cobra to generate a down payment for a white 2005 GT Mustang that I ordered in December. It also has the interior upgrade package with the red leather and red insert package.

I am 10 weeks into my waiting period. They told me 12 to 16 weeks wait on the red interior stuff because of the parts are backed up. How long are they telling you it will take to get your car?

I got a 2000 v6 stang, Dark metallic green. Very cheap at the time but the insurance was a killer. I was 18 when I bought it. Put over $6,000 in the looks of it and I get girls looking at it all the time. Razzi body kit, chrome tailights, 17x8 Buillit wheels on the front, 17x10's on the back. Some graphics, chrome intrior. Obviously the car is my baby so Its well worth it to me.

I'm already lookin at a 2005 GT because I DO NOT want another v6. This year compared to mine is only 15 or so HP and NO GT has ever gotton close to being a stock 300hp. Also the stang was recognized as one of the top ten cars this year for the first time. Plus i'm picky what I want so hopefully by the summer the dealers have what i want. It's either that or a Mazda 6, Ford focus ST4, or nothing.......

Well, I had to compromise to get the wife onboard, but it looks like the new Mustang thing will become a reality this summer.

The compromise will be getting the less expensive V6 model, as opposed to the V8 GT, and waiting a couple of months to order it (I want a very specific combination of colors/features that none of the local dealers seem to have, so I'll have to order it from the factory). The GT would have been great, but this makes more sense, I guess, at least economically. It certainly beats sleeping on the couch for several months.

So at some point this summer, I'll have my torch red 2005 Mustang with red/black leather interior, all-wheel disc brakes with traction control, automatic transmission and 6-disc CD changer.

Should be a fun drive down to KC for the next banquet weekend.

:thumb:

I ordered the Black GT with the red/black leather and all the other good stuff. 12-16 weeks wait for the order to arrive.

Not trying to steal your thunder Fraz. But I am a fellow Mustang enthusiast.

I have a 64 and a half that I have been doing a frame up resto on for the lsat 4 years. I am 2 years from being done with it.

Also, I just sold my 97 Cobra to generate a down payment for a white 2005 GT Mustang that I ordered in December. It also has the interior upgrade package with the red leather and red insert package.

I am 10 weeks into my waiting period. They told me 12 to 16 weeks wait on the red interior stuff because of the parts are backed up. How long are they telling you it will take to get your car?

They said three to four months. I'm probably going to order it in the next week or so.

Sounds like you're getting the exact model I originally wanted. You'll have to let us know how you like it when it finally shows up. :thumb:

My 99 Monte Carlo was black. It was great when it was clean, but all it took was a couple of days of dust and a light rain to make it look like ass. I got sick of washing it all the time real quick.

And I'll definitely have mine before the season starts. PBJ

I would like to make a reccommendation to you.

I ordered a white one. It has already come in and gone. The reason is because when I ordered the car, they said they would give me one deal, but when it arrived the deal had changed. Thusly I refused to take delivery of the car.

All dealerships are wanting people to order the GTs because they cannot get them. Only priority orders are being taken by Ford due to the demand for the car. It would cost you nothing more to order a GT, and a 6 cylinder. I also ordered two GTs from another dealership. A black one and a white one because I wanted to see the black with the red interior. I have since seen one, and prefer the white/red combo over the black/red combo. It just looks cleaner.

The point of the story here though, is that by ordering 2 you will get to chose from more than one that you built. But also it gives the dealership the car you didn't want. They will be happy to get it. 4 months is a long time to wait for a car. Something might change between now and then to allow you to buy the V8.

I dont know if the dealership would do this on any car. Especially when they have a bunch on the lot. But your dealer would kill to get orders for this one. Also, you might order from more than one dealership to give you a little negotiating power. Just a thought. It has helped me out. Becuase had I only ordered the one car, I would have been screwed by the dealer on it. This gave me a little more ability to walk on the deal. Had I ordered one, I would have caved a little because I wouldn't have wanted to wait another 16 weeks. It cost you maybe a couple hundred on a deposit when you order. But you can refuse the car for any reason when it arrives. The deposit is fully refundable.

Finally... get your ass down there and get the car ordered@!. If there is a 4 month wait, what the hell are you waiting on?

I ordered the Shaker 100 stereo too. How about you?

CrazyHorse-
those are some pretty good thoughts. Not a bad angle at all.
I had to go to 4 dealers before I could find one that would let me order
one on the X plan. Basically that is $150 below dealer invoice.
I finally found one though.

Very Cool.

I am on the A plan. The car I ordered lists for 28,775

The A plan price is 25,411
The X plan price is 26,578

I doubt that X plan is under invoice. But it definately gives you an opportunity to get a good deal on a car that the dealer dont want to sell for less than sticker.

What is the qualifier for the X plan? My wifes mom retired from Ford. That's how I get the A plan deal. The way I understand it, A-plan is 2% under invoice. Ford reimburses the dealer for the invoice loss. The the dealer gets the delivery charges of about $625. That's why they dont want to do an X plan. Because they can get sticker on every car they get right now.

Make sure you get your deal on paper. That was my mistake. We hammered out the terms, then ordered the car. Nothing was in writing. I should know better. I was thinking they wanted to make a sale. But they wanted to make a better one. I was the vehicle they used to get the car on the lot. Then they wanted sticker price for it. It really is a good thing I had a couple other cars on order.

My dad used to make a living restoring old Mustangs. When I was in high school, I had a 1970 convertible, but at various other times in high school I drove 64-67 coupes, a 66 fastback, 65-66 convertibles, a 69 Mach I, and a 72 Mach I. I must say that that 1972 Mach I was one of the coolest cars I've ever driven.

Those new Mustangs rock, too. They're a design ripoff of the 1966 fastback, but that's a good thing. I saw one the other day, and I'm trying to remember what the paint/trim looked like, but it was different than the others. It was a dang sharp car.

Wuss.. You want the real fun, get the stick shift and dump the traction control. First time you hit a slick spot with one tire, that traction control will screw up your day. Besides, you'll save nearly 2 grand. :)

BTW, I'm on a Mustang hunt too. I'm going after the V-6 for two reasons. One, the V-6 has overall better rally performance than the v-8, and two, 29mpg on the highway in a v-6 is good numbers. Especially with today's gas prices.

The v-8 is great in the straight line acceleration and there's no denying that having 300 pounding horses under the hood is enough to make your adrenaline rise, but after driving two different 2005 v-6 Mustangs recently, I'm very impressed with the performance of that engine and the v-8 almost feels like overkill.

Mine's going to be black on black with the premium package options, with the exterior sport options. No automatic tranny for me! I'll take a five speed stick and run with it!

:D

Actually the traction control option (with 4 wheel disc anti-lock brakes) is around $800. I figure it'll make up for the RWD somewhat - of course, I grew up driving rear wheel drive cars, so I'm not that concerned.

I also feel the V8 would be overkill. It would have been nice, but waiting 6 weeks instead of over a year (I would have had to seriously pay some shit down to afford the difference) will ease the pain.

As for the stick, as I said earlier, no way in hell will I get one where I live. Way too much traffic to contend with - I'd go insane (well, beyond the current level I can manage, anyway).

When do you get yours?

One of the great things about having too much power is that you can let off the throttle.

Rally performance?

Who the hell are you calling a Wuss? Is it because you have ordered a manual trans? It would have worked better if you hadn't claimed the V-8 was too much car for you first.

Just got back from taking it out for an impromptu late-night spin (I think that might happen alot). Handles great, quick, powerful. Love the sound of the engine as it's moving - it just sounds mean. It has a great sound system, too, but right now I'd rather listen to the engine.

And looking at it at a downward angle from the top of the stairs as it's parked in the garage, the lines and curves really remind me of old late 60s cars - not just the Mustang, but old Firebirds as well. I hadn't picked up on that before, and none of the photos I've seen capture it.

Never in my life have I had a car like this. In the past I've owned an '85 Cutlass Supreme and a '99 Monte Carlo, and they were nice looking cars and reasonably fast, but this simply kicks the shit out of both of them. I think I'm still in shock.

Damn fine automobile I must say!

Ooops this was supposed to be added to the bottom of my previous post oh well

Nothing like quoting yourself

My wife doesn't drive, and has never had a license (a city thing I just don't understand).

This baby's all mine.

Bonus!

I look forward to getting it out in the country - then I'll really cut loose. Too many damned cops around here, and the second I bought a red Mustang I painted a doughnut-shaped target on my ass.

As for the Mrs., she was strongly opposed to me getting this (primarily for financial reasons), but seems to be coming around now that she's ridden around it.

No doubt. the need for seped is strong in both genders, it's just that (some of) us ladies would rather enjoy the ride than the drive, even if we get wheelied off the motorcycle or left at the start line. Have fun!!

My V6 has a single exhaust, but at the dealership they told me that if I install a dual exhaust, it'll increase the HP by at least 20. Since it's rated at 210 now, that would give it more than HP than the SS Monte Carlo.

Thanks. Believe me, I intend to.

Hopefully you'll all get to see it during the next banquet weekend gathering.

Well, I had to compromise to get the wife onboard, but it looks like the new Mustang thing will become a reality this summer.

The compromise will be getting the less expensive V6 model, as opposed to the V8 GT, and waiting a couple of months to order it (I want a very specific combination of colors/features that none of the local dealers seem to have, so I'll have to order it from the factory). The GT would have been great, but this makes more sense, I guess, at least economically. It certainly beats sleeping on the couch for several months.

So at some point this summer, I'll have my torch red 2005 Mustang with red/black leather interior, all-wheel disc brakes with traction control, automatic transmission and 6-disc CD changer.

Should be a fun drive down to KC for the next banquet weekend.

Will it have an alarm to alert you to Jamie defacing your vehicle with a bumper sticker...? :hmmm:

Let's just say Jamie will need an alarm on his person if he tries... :$2500:

Horsepower is EXTREMELY addictive. Trust me, once the newness wears off a bit and you get used to the power, you'll want more. For some, this becomes an endless, obsessive search to squeeze the absolute last 1/16th of a HP out of the vehicle as possible. And I know what you're thinking, "Naw, I'll keep it stock". But I can almost guarantee you'll be searching the web for that K&N air filter or free flowing exhaust kit you've been hearing about. Yeah, the "power" bug is about to bite you right square in the azz.

Just wait until it comes time to sell/trade it in. The V6 will be worth waaaay less than the V8. Penny wise, pound foolish. Go find the key to that box she keeps your balls in, and get the V8 already!

Outstanding, congrats Tim! Now all you need is some serious wide open space like we have around here and you can open it up.

Speaking of that little bastard, I only tonight realized that he put a damn Mildcat sticker on MY FRONT LICENSE PLATE as well as my back plate. That damn thing was on my car for months.

MONTHS!

:cuss:

I clearly need to kick his bony ass..... :$2500:

I loved when he fessed up to putting the sticker on your plate... but the word plate was still singular.

Man, it was so hard to keep my mouth shut... but, the payoff is so much greater this way.

If the Viagra people are to be believed, I'll need to consult a physician in about another half an hour. :D

Congrats, man. Remember... when you call the doc... the word is priapism. Remember the number of hours since you picked up the car.

You were prolly only goin' like 25, tho.

The only bad thing about me going back to Scottsdale is that my buddy's GT hasn't come in yet. It was supposed to show up late February... but, as the comments in this thread show, the wait is quite long. Nonetheless, when he gets it, I'll be making a weekend trip to Tucson to party with him.

Course, I can be a bad influence... we'll probably end up dying in a fiery crash. But, ah f*ck it. We'll have fun on the way out.
