  1. Just picked up this Baby today! I'm pretty stoked.
    Anybody have an idea for a name?

  2. if its the gt with 300h.p. you could call it going broke... no way you could afford insurance and gas :p
     

  3. v6, runs on 87 octane. rated 19-28mpg city/hwy. Same mileage as my Taurus got. Now, if you have a lead foot, well, that's a different story. :)

    I tried to test drive a GT but unless I was seriously interested in buying one, they wouldn't let me. The V6 is plenty HP for me.
     
  4. thats messed up they wouldnt let u test drive a GT, its probally cause of kids coming in and just wanting to joy (test drive) ride in them then say o we rnt going to buy, but being u was a serious buyer i would have went somewhere else. congrats on the new ride though those v6's in those are pretty stout v6's and with some mods could become a sleeper.

  6. Tough one!
    How bout "Red Mustang"?
     
  7. Back in 1967 Shelby built a prototype of a GT350 coupe that they gave the in-house nickname of "Little Red".

    First thing I thought of when I saw it was, "Candy".
     
  9. Mustang Sally
     
  10. my neighbor bought a brand new gt last year. it had the 5 speed. he let me take it for a ride the day he got it home. my first problem with it was shifting gears. the shifter is only about 4 inches long. and the gears are millimeters apart:D i had a hard time finding 3rd gear in that car. big difference from the shifting motion in my dodge ram

    I got it! Since I'm the proud owner of a '94 Caprice (sleeper) with an LT-1 'vette motor and a full interceptor package, you ought to call it ....

    "Chevy Fodder"

    I'd call it "My Wifes" and get myself an F-250. ;)
     
  15. some good names there - Candy sounds nice but I think the most original one is 'Red Mustang' :)

    Creek Crawler - that sounds like a stout Caprice!

    The last time I had a car with over 300HP I got in way too much trouble. This one has 210hp and that's plenty for me!

  19. did they throw in a full tank of gas????????????????????
     
  20. haha - I wish. they gave me a 1/4 tank.

    V6 gets me 210HP and I think 0-60 in like 8 or 9 seconds.

    I think I settled on Mustang Sally - Sally for short.
