Well this is a big change from what I’m used to but last week I went out and bought a 2017 Gt with the 6 speed manual. So far I’m in love with the car and it’s a drastic change over my 89 GT. Thought I’d share a few pictures with everyone over on stangnet. I’ll get some updated pics once I’m not so busy with work or driving the car lol

What did you do with your 89 GT..... I often wonder how one of those crazy colored Mustangs would look in my garage.
My 89 GT is currently still under the knife after my last progress thread on it. Haven’t heard anything from the guy who’s working on it but he is only one man and I did give him a hell of a list of things to do lol. I didn’t think I would be a fan of the yellow until I saw it in person. Ford actually did a good job on this color and I love all of the black accents with the bright yellow

I miss my 19 ecoboost. When they offered me 1k less than what I paid for it with 50k on the clock I had to sell. The GTs are nice cars. Plenty of power and the chassis handles it very well.

I could deal with yellow for sure. I would get the buffer out , and make that shine like it never has.
Yep once it cools down a bit the whole car is getting a huge detail and I’m thinking about trying out some ceramic coating. Never really messed with that stuff but I figured I’ll give it a try

Yeah it’s a really comfortable car. Almost too comfortable lol since I’m used to basically fighting for my life while driving my fox body.

Also it appears to have some things already done to it. Not really sure what these red pieces are but they definitely look aftermarket

Also has a cat back system with an X pipe but I’m not sure which mufflers it has on it but it sounds great

I wish I would’ve thought to get a picture of the mufflers themselves but they didn’t have any markings that I could see but they seem to be the typical wide cylindrical shape mufflers that take place of the stock mufflers

Also does anyone have a link to the wheels or what the wheels are? I’m assuming they came on a mustang originally? I just couldn’t find them on first search
