#546 of 1125 Finally, I have my Torch Red Mustang GT!!!!
Dec 19, 2005 (11:35 pm)
Hey Graphicguy...if you're out there, I wanted to tell you as of last Friday, Dec. 16th, I'm finally the proud owner of my 2006 Premium Mustang GT! Funny, it was exactly 13 months to the date I ordered my 2005 that I got my 2006...you know the my story on that one. The dealer said had I not bugged the crap out of Ford I still most likely wouldn't have it. Of course the day it arrived, there was a nasty Wisconsin snow storm going on, waited till the next evening to get it and the roads still were not the best, but got her home! I must say, it handles much better on slick surfaces compared to my 96 mustang, the traction control made an amazing difference. I managed to get my 96 stuck in a vacant parking lot that hadn't been plowed of snow the week before and had to be pulled out by my hubbys SUV...oops. The torch red is such a bright red, under lights outdoors it almost looks orange. Is a beauty. Even tho I had the V8 in my 96, I can definitely feel the extra power under the hood in the 06. Can't wait to have some good dry roads that I can put the pedal down and have some fun with it. The higher raised hood takes a bit to get used to seeing over, more room for front seat passengers, but wow, only a little kid could fit in the back seat...but who cares....I love it! The My Color feature is fun, not a bad sounding 500 watt stereo. The exhaust still could be more meaty sounding, my 96 had special pipes put on, so it growled. Eventually I may put different pipes on this one, but so far am actually enjoying it being a bit quieter....LOL. Anyway, wanted to pop in and tell you it's finally here, Merry Christmas to me...yea!! I needed some cheer in my life, as I just lost my oldest brother to a horrible car accident just 3 weeks ago...a 72 VW bug vs an SUV, the other driver fell asleep at the wheel, hit my brother at 3am in the morning on his way to work, only 2/10 of a mile from his driveway...so it's been a rough go the past few weeks.
Take care, hope you have a great 2006....!

Five months on the dealers lot? I'd shoot for invoice or within a few hundred of invoice at the most. The 2006s have been out too long for them to dally.
#550 of 1125 05 GT Premium Convertible
Dec 29, 2005 (7:37 pm)
I think I found the last 2005 Mustang GT convertible in metro Atlanta. 5-speed, interior upgrade, wheels, leather boot, 150 miles on the odometer. Buying for $2000 below invoice (getting the $750 Katrina relief rebate).
In the process of looking for other 2005s I found another premium GT at Adamson Ford in Birmingham. They beat the deal I have here by $100 but that Mustang is over $2000 more expensive since it's an automatic and has the Shaker 1000. Both dealerships have been great but I've put my deposit on the one in Atlanta.
I've requested they replace the "premium wheels" with the stock 5-spokes. Picking it up Saturday.
#551 of 1125 How about this price
Dec 30, 2005 (9:41 pm)
As much as I would love the GT Im being offered a V6 Premium, Automatic, Pony Pkg, Security Alarm, Side air bags, Interior upgrade pkg, leather seat.
They are offering 21,500. Decent price?

Imm, I paid $23k for my '06 V6 with basically the same options that you've mentioned, I ordered mine in late Oct. The price seems to be coming down, when I ordered mine, my dealer had 1 V6 and 1 GT on the lot, there are now about 10 on the lot, and they are probably more likely to deal.
Dec 31, 2005 (1:33 pm)
Thats a really good price - probably right at invoice. Heck, its a GREAT price - I am paying 21900 for mine 06 Pony leather with a 5 speed, no upgrade package, and no side airbags

Dude, that's about $1300 under invoice. Is this a car on the lot or are you ordering it? I have an offer of 22,858 for the same car factory ordered w/o the alarm w/o the alarm. (I also have an offer of $600 over invoice for any factory ordered GT).
