    Yup. I helped set up the company booth at the Tarrant County Auto Show (Fort Worth, Texas) today, and there it was. Light blue GT.

    I had to be quick, as there were grumpy looking people with Ford logos on their shirts watching, but I sat behind the wheel and opened the hood. The battery was disconnected, and I couldn't move the seat out of munchkin setting, so I can't attest to how comfortable it is. That engine is just gorgeous too.

    I doubt it will be open during the regular show (just vendors setting up right now), but its still worth looking at. Its sitting next to a riser that has a Ford GT on it.

    It is this exact car:

    What did you think of the color? I'm hoping to see that particular color in person-I am thinking of repainting my 91 ranger a similar color (it was originally a more silver version of that color. Something Frost I think). The current color is so blah-I love the "deep" colors, like Electric Green and Performance Red (I think that's the one)....

    Man you lucked out .That interior looks great, like the new F150. I may try and get a 6 banger for a daily driver if theyll pay off my Ranger. :shrug:
    Hmmm,,silver with black stripes maybe? :D

    Though I'm not sure I'd want to equip whatever fire-breathing GT version that I'd like with that color, I do have to say, it is a beautiful shade of blue. That said, I have to mention that my judgement is clouded by the fact that my first Mustang, a 65 6 cyl coupe was almost exactly the same shade of blue. FWIW, my wife is in love with this color, and she has very good taste. :D

    Hop, I do think that the interior is the highlight of the car, which is nice considering that the inside is what you are enjoying most while behind the wheel. I too have considered a V6 as a good daily driver, though I am tormented by the fact that the monthly payment would be just a little more for a 300 hp bad mofo. I also think grey with black stripes sounds like a great combo. :cool:

    ok mR.,,wHO ARE you AND wHERE IS BlAKE ??? :D

    Id LOVE to get a V8 too, but I drive about 35 miles one way to work :fuss:
    And theres my wife to contend with. Id look like this smiley :owned:
    if i brought home another Mustang and higher payments. She can be nasty. Her family is from the mountains of North Carolina . A place called Waynesville about 5 minutes from where that movie "Cold Mountain " is set. Why do yall think i come here to run my mouth?? I do it at home and im a dead man.
    So, most likely theres no 05 in my future . :(

    Yeah, I have to agree with the fact that it just doesn't look like a "powerful" color-but from the pics, neither does "legend lime". I thought when they said they brought back colors from the classics, they would bring back colors like Grabber Green :shrug: . No offense to anyone with a car painted (close to)that color (Wind veil blue or something like that), it just doesn't seem Mustangly (is that a word) like some of the other colors...

    Now, that darker blue with white stripes combo on the cover of.....oh, damn I forget which mag. Now THAT'S a combo!
