I have owned my 2005 Mustang GT for 11 months, and evertime I drive it I have a smile, this is the best car ford ever built. I concidered several cars before I purchased the mustang. 1-and older vette 2-Pontiac GTO 3-Dodge charger. the Mustang GT won. I recently had a Saleen Superchager installed for 6500.00. This brings my mustang to 475 RWHP at over 500 RWTQ. I paid 26,700 for my GT so my total cost for my car is 32,200.00. I have raced vettes at the track and I outperform them hands down.
I Love this Car, and the Supercharger increased my fun factor.

No doubt the Vette is an icon of american testosorone, but bang for the buck my 06 red $26K GT is the best buy around. Where else can a 50 y/o re-live his youth happy to be able to afford the toy he angst for back in 69?
Somethin about crankin her up and snappin 2nd gear right before a 2 wheeler with "instant-on" turns the corner.
My 12 y/o thinks he's taking it to college....I'm thinkin of re-writing my burial instructions......

Timing is everything. Your GT was $26k and the wife's '04 C5 Coupe was $39 out the door. End of the C5 run in June '04 so it was almost $12k off due to dealer and GM incentives. Now that's almost the same car I got two years earlier for $45k so you are doing fine. But at the track, road courses, the Vette out of the box is amazing while even heavily modded Mustangs don't generally keep up. But since I'm almost ten years ahead of you in the Boom, don't give up yet ...

Sounds like we're both happy. Since the Vette was for your wife you get bonus points. As far as the track, I'm lucky if I get time to drive the pony to the gas station. Mostly under covers waiting to be ridden.....

BLA BLA, you need a super charger to get that power,from that GT, in fact so does the cobra and saleen, the ls1 & ls2
engines just needs some TLC and will blow the doors off any Mustang, saleen,cobra. in some cases without The Mods.if imagine if the C5 or C6 was supercharged!! my god. its just fact,
i own a 2001 zo6 and never been taken by any Mustang old or new and its pushing only 455rwhp.480rwtq
without NItro or supercharger.
These cars are made to out perform any Ford Garbage that comes off the Production lines, in fact they are built to compete with the Porsche and Ferrari,s in Lemans and win 9 out of ten in there class. Oh the new Dog The ford GT, and remember they cost about 100k less then the GT and Etc.
Anyway, i have a 95 mustang GT, Its Garbage. 5.0 HO engine,
The best thing is that, when your with your girl friend, there no room for her friends!!! so you have her all to yourself. ya love those 2 seaters

I own a '05 Mustang GT Premium, and love it. But I would never dream of boasting that it's in the same class as a Vette. It seems Mustangs attract a lot of meatheads.

Hey to each his own.....I still say bang for the buck the GT is hard to beat. Glad you enjoy the ZO6, stand out car, but 1.) I'd probably do time for whackin the first idiot who opened a door against it, 2.) My insurance company would triple my rates from the tickets I'd get, and 3.) with my luck it would end up on a boat to South America a week after I'd get it.....

COMPARED TO A C6 405HP OR A C6 Z06 505HP
WITH THE MUSTANG GT500 475HP
ALL FORD MOTORS ARE GARBAGE. WITH OUT A SUPERCHARGER!
THERE NO BETTER THAN TUNA IMPORT! ITS JUST NOT IN THE ENGINE! OUT OF THE BOX THE VETTE IS MUCH BETTER. ALL AROUND EXCEPT GROUND CLEARANCE!! BIG WOOP
THE MUSTANGS NEEDA SUPERCHARGER!!!! TO GET ALL THAT HP!
THE GM'S MOTOR DONT NEED IT! AND IF IT HAD IT WE WOULD BE LOOKING AT 600HP+
CAN A MUSTANG PULL A 0.9 TO 1.0 GEE TURN?
GM DID IT RIGHT! AGAIN,
