It is an inexpensive itch to scratch, £42k with every possible extra, other than body stripes....

We looked hard at it when we were thinking about the AMG.
In the end finesse, build quality and a switchable hooligan exhaust triumphed over the raw charm of the 'Stang.

bummer, home from work and the weather turns cats and dogs, I'll give it a wax, driving will have to wait.

I know it's a common perception that these things are not built as well as Euro cars, but I've yet to see anything below par. It looks good and sounds good and that's where the fun is.

Panel gaps etc seem fine, but why that matters to anyone is beyond me, there are many things in life which I don't measure and that's one of them laugh2

It's a big thing to polish.

I had the chance to take this shot during a stop driving from Portland to Yakima at the Columbia River scenic drive two weeks ago. The red one was our rental car.
But this blue is awesome. I wrote some lines about the Mustang (eco boost) on TM. I can repeat that the structure and stiffness of the body is very very good regarding the convertible. So the coupe must be an even better and very controllable drive.

As has been said earlier, not much subtlety. I do have an ordinary car too for anonymity, but it's left round the side by the bins.

The Morgan is still my favourite.

At a guess, a proper sports car! Ferrari. Certainly they come with covers like that.

Will be interested to learn how the OP gets on with an American car.
