While I've had a string of F150s, I've not really considered myself a hardcore blue oval fan. But, I think I can't deny it anymore, I'm a Ford guy. Really it's Nabster's fault. He let me drive the Orange Furry and that pushed an idea that had been fermenting in my head to a full boil. Next morning I went down to a local dealer and after beating them with a 2x4 over the price, took this home.



Meet Scarlet, the stripper. :wicked:

She's got everything you need, nothing you don't. GT, Perfomance pack 1, 6 speed manual transmission, sexy optional 5 spoke alloys and of course that lovely Royal Crimson metallic paint.

Not quite the ultimate 2 Ford setup, but close.



And in case anyone doubted me, the proof.



This is gonna be fun. :burnrubber:

Nice! Not the color I'd buy, but it looks great on the new body style! Congratulation!

Can confirm, we're now "those guys" in the matchy-matchy new Mustangs getting up to loud shenanigans. :lol:

You're welcome.

And now by our powers combined we have the same thing to do for someone else :shifty:

For the Mustang money you can get Cayman in Europe. So, take a guess

These stripper™️ trim Mustangs are the best deal going for a sporty car. And the Mustang GT is a competent sports car for 2018+.

I’m sort of a Euro snob and can attest that these cars are not the live axle horse carts that couldn’t hold a candle to the sporty coupes of the day.

It would be real interesting to see a comparo between one and a Cayman on street and track.

I didn’t even have time to post ‘inb4 Der Stig needs to buy a Challenger already.’ :lol:

Soooo.... obviously not the target audience eh? And my guess is that people do want Mustangs as 2 people on here just bought them.........

And here in the US the Cayman is nearly twice the price, for half the engine and less power, and maintenance costs are Porsche versus Ford. :dunno:

Congrats on the purchase! Quite a lovely color! My wife has recently picked up '15 S550 and I haven't been able to get over how good the chassis is.

...and you look like a douchebag while driving it. The Porsche hype going on in the world needs to call down.
