    Hey guys I just bought a 2013 mustang. I was hoping to wail till I PCS back to the states but my euro beater crapped out so I bit the bullet. It was hard for me to get back into a car payment after having my Taco paid off for 2 years. Oh well I have saved and been really good with my money now its me time!! When I pick up the car I will post some pictures!

    Pics or it didn't happen! ;)

    Looking at a Shelby in the future but a buddy, who happens to sell Chevys, is trying real hard to get me into a Camaro or 'Vette.

    A few years ago when they started selling the 2011 with the new Coyote I went out and bought one. It was my first Ford and I had three fourth-gen f-bodies before that. They're definitely a great car, and that engine is amazing. Have fun with it.

    As a faithful GM guy, I would have liked to have gone with a Camaro, but I waited so long for the 5th gen to come out and then after driving it I realized it wasn't for me. The Mustang seemed so much more practical as a daily driver, especially since I had two small kids that would have to get in and out of the back.

    I test drove the Mustang 5.0, Camaro SS and Dodge Challenger all in the same day. I can definately feel the Camaro was quicker and the Dodge felt more comfortable than the two but I thought the Mustang was better overall as a daily driver and it was also the cheapest of the three. I would buy a mustang.

    At 6'3" the Camaro is too short for me. I had to tilt my head sideways to sit in the damned thing.
