Au revoir Spartacus Au revoir

I signed in blood.

I had the pen in my hand. 03 GT, Red with gray leather, 5 speed, 15,000 miles. It was $21,300 out the door, upside down trade, tax, tag, license.

At the last second, I balked.

So.................. I bought a 05 V6, Red, with charcoal cloth, AT, $22,000 out the door.

I need to be at the dealer by 12:00 with Spartacus. It is going to a wholeseller, so all mods are coming off.

I need a un-nightshaded grill and the rear part of the stock exhaust

Time is critical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wait a minute, hold the press. You opted out of a GT, for a V6?? And paid MORE?!?
Please tell us there was a reason.

The wife wanted the AT. Its hard to find a GT with an AT. Most people want the 5 speed. Also for about $1000 more we got a new car.

Im planning on intake, exhaust, and tuning. I bet I can come close to the GT numbers by the time the aftermarket develops stuff for the 05.

I will post pics tomorrow night, its a really nice looking car.

So long Spartacus, fare thee well! Congrats on the new Mustang George, I'd love to see pictures of her! Do you have another name lined up yet?

People the 05 V6 model isn't THAT bad, give him a break, sheesh. It's faster to 60mph than an SVT Focus, didja know that?? Plus it's a completely new and redesigned car compared to the 03 GT which even Mustang enthusiasts have to admit was getting "long in the tooth" as they say. Congratulations on the purchase.
