'05 Mustang '07 GT/CS

Yesterday, I got a chance to drive a '05 Mustang. It was a very awesome experience - a five -speed Manual. After, I drove that I saw a '07 GT/CS. So, it was a pretty fun day.. The only thing missing was seeing a '68 gt/cs..

I have driving both like you and hadn't heard of the '68 till this past week while on ebay searching for GT/CS. I heard of the '07 GT/CS though my car club and saw my first one at a local car show, of which the dealer just got in. I just traded off my '05 GT for my '07 GT/CS and just love it, and 5 Speed is the only way to go in my book.

Smile I agree on the 07 GT/CS

Hay Hotrodgrany: I totally agree with you. The 2007 GT/CS is an awesome car. Very well engineered. I ordered mine just the way I wanted it. It took a couple of months to get. I have 375 miles on it. I still have a grin on my face This is my first visit to this site. Is it mainly for the 1968 GT/CS ?
Heres some photos of my new ride.

Hey Rob, welcome to the site. We're almost neighbors. Yes, this site is mainly for the '68 but that's because the site was started before the new ones came out. There are some others here with the new ones as well. I think you would be included the same as everybody else as long as you don't mind people talking about problems with 40 year old cars most of the time. Check out the calender contest and you'll see 2 07's there.

YOu need to check out my gallary, you willl find mine and my other Stang I presently own. With this one will be my 7th Stang. I dislike the stripping on my GT/CS so I am having it changed from black to reflective white/silver, makes more since my 07 is black. I want everyone to see what it really is, not just a Mustang GT.I am always getting comments on this one , but have with all the rest, as I try to keep them looking as if the came off the show floor. It is a lot of work, but so worth all the compliments. I also store mine in the winter month, but as soon as spring is here I can't wait to take them out.

Good call, never did understand why the stripes are matched to the car color so they disapear. I keep telling my wife if a blue CS with white stripes shows up at the local Ford dealership it will be more than I can resist.
