Mustangs - 2011, '12 & '13 


In June 2010 a Red Candy Mustang at the local Ford dealership caught my eye and I took it for a drive. It had the 305 hp 3.7L motor, it was quick and handled great. I ordered one of my own with a few additional options like the glass roof and upgraded interior

It had a lot in common with my 78 WS6 Trans Am, which I had ordered new in 1978, it was the fastest and best handling car you could buy that year. The new Mustang wasn't as fast as the now modified TA, but it had better brakes and handling - I really enjoyed driving it, so much so it saw some track time.

I was hooked on the Mustang but wanted more power so in June of 2011 I ordered a 2012 Mustang GT California Special 


This one also had the optional glass roof

The reason for trading was under the hood ..... the 5.0 V8 is just an awesome motor
