@ redfire congrats bro. That mustang looks awesome. Black suits her. No infinity shinshinity or m3 shemm3 can come close to this. This is pure american muscle. A breed not to be compared to anything else.
Your one lucky guy. Our dream here of owning something like that will always be a dream.
is this the same on for sale on karplus website.

Any mods..??? v8 transplant..??

Dude more pictures please.

Well thats great, whatever floats your boat !!! What colour is the interior?

The 350z is a great car not as great as the 300zx TT, but dont get me started on that !!!

OT: I used to live in the Marina, if you can goto Agra Indian Kitchen on Lincoln in Marina Del Rey, you'll thank me!!

@Danlalan - You're funny, but that whole discussion is another story, maybe at the next meet we can debate that and Kim Kardashian.

If I could manage I would have gone for a 69 one or a Shelby! BTW I am in Westwood. Couple of miles from UCLA.

Good, nice hood, nice ride. The V6 is a fun little stang, but these things don't turn great. I have a white V6 in NoCal, pics posted somewhere on BHP, but I prefer my 330i anyday.

Good choice if by the heart, but they stangs don't offer the kit a bimmer does.

OT: True about the 300ZX I don't think anyone can argue against that.

That's the pits! Everytime I'm around that side, people always wanna take me to Indian restaurants. What's with that? Anyhoo I'll drop you guys a line next time I'm in PV. Do the same if you in Mumbai

Thanks DocG. As I said in my earlier mail, it is bought not after a comparison or reasearch on various brands. Its purely from heart. Of course you guys can post your thoughts and how good/bad I did it or about n number of other cars, but for me I had only choice. I hope you understand.

I was also looking at a Mustang V6, upgrading from my 2003 Lancer here. Wanted one with a 5-speed manual though. Let's see what I end up getting.

Looks wicked man .I always like the rough looks of a car with straight lines instead of smooth lines . Congrats for the car . Just a few Rs more than swift , damn thats a fantastic deal . Enjoy .

Is that the big lever the hand brake? , why is so highlighted , I mean why so big and straight in the face ?

Congrats redfire. A car purchase made by the heart will always feel more special that one which you buy with your head!

The Mustang is my all time fav too. Right from the '65! But i feel you should have got the manual. The slushbox will sap away a lot of fun from the drive! But it should still be more than enough for us!
