Hey!

Am picking up my '11 GT Premium on Thursday after a year of looking (the last three months seriously)... Been lurking on the forum, and you have unintentionally been very helpful in my "crash course" at Mustang U... (sorry ), so I figured I'd join and add whatever I can to the discussion...

This is my first Ford, which is a MAJOR adjustment... Was a diehard Chevy man in HS and college (2 x 56s, 1 x 57, 2 x Camaros), had three Hondas and an Acura since 1979, but absolutely fell in love with the new Mustang's lines the first time I saw it.

I was able to resist because of the old engine and a FIVE SPEED manual (In a 21st century pony car? WTF?!?!), but when the 2011 came out with the 5.0L Coyote engine and a 6 MT, I was a goner...

I'm kinda like a kid at Christmas waiting for Thursday... keeping busy by making lists of the final details, what additions I want to make to the car and reading Mustang forums.

Thanks for all your (unintentional) help so far. I hope I can contribute to the high quality of this forum as I learn about my first Ford....

Cheers!

Jim
