Here are a few more pics for you all, thanks for the kind words. She is fun to drive, no doubt about that. Of course, I'd rather have bought a 2010 model, but the arrival of the 2010s are the only thing that brought this car down to a price I could afford. A few very basic mods will wake her up even more, but I need to get a few thousand miles on her first (and a new job
) The only mod I've done so far is tearing out the cloth upholstery (seats only) and replacing it with a leather interior.
Thanks for the compliments on the color, too. I like these cars in white because it shows off the black trim well. Usually I'm a black car guy but I've come to like white on some cars in the last few years (used to hate it). People say these Mustangs are too big and bloated, and I hear that, but I like the big bodies and the white makes it look all the more overweight and bloaty
. And, the 09 GT MT is almost 200 pounds lighter than the 10 GT MTs.
My only complaint about the car is that like many new cars that are offered with 19" rims as an option, smaller rims (mine are 17") really don't fill out the wheel well completely and it throws off the proportions of the car a bit. You'll see from the side views there is like a 1-2" gap between where my tires end and the fender line above them. Not the biggest complaint in the world, but there it is. I will be switching to some 18s sooner or later so that I can buy better tires with a larger contact patch without adding too much weight to the car. I like the looks of bigger rims on these cars, but I don't need to add that extra rotational mass. Plus, low profile tires for 19 or 20 inch rims are way too pricey to be replace.
And yeah, I like these cars better with the spoiler removed as well. I will probably remove mine in time, but I need to read up on it more. I know these cars don't need the spoiler, but I've been reading about air currents over trunklids and how spoilers help to break up the way air travels over the trunk, giving the backend more stability. And yes, I understand it's not a wing or a trefoil and it's not generating downforce. But yeah, I agree, these cars look better without it.
