    No, my current priority is the HG kit and I cant do both so the talk was mainly about getting a feel for pricing and what people might be able to do bargaining wise.

    Obviously the price increase is s big story so just wanted to get a feel for that while at the same time considering trade combinations that might work for me.

    Private sale for your cars mate, they're all in far too good condition for a Dealer to low ball you on.

    Now I hesitate to bring this up, but over the years since Miami was introduced, you invented new ways to say no. All you did was rob yourself of the experience that is Miami.

    You wouldn’t listen then, if you don’t listen now, you just prove my point.

    On the nationals, I will be honest, I didn’t like the thought of you moving the TS on.

    I would be sad over that.

    Correction, would have.

    Now if you announced you intended to trade the TS on one of these, the reaction would be the opposite.

    It would be brother congrats, it’s the right call.

    The driving experience over what we have had is next level, other than sprint. Even then, I think having both car, in time you will gravitate towards the stang more and more.


    A few things happened on the Sunday.

    The person who activated this chance attended Bathurst. He reached out and set up a meeting. We ended up out on track in the raptor during the drivers parade.

    Andrew is my witness here. We spoke about a lot of things.

    Over the last few months I have been running my mouth about the lack of performance offered by Ford.

    It’s was put to me, “you don’t consider the GT to be performance?”

    I answered as you would expect.

    On the Sunday morning.

    “Ya know when I said the GT wasn’t a performance car in my mind?, yeah well I will walk that sucker back”

    I have another guy actually offering to write to ford over his experience in this car.

    “Ian, if I write out a response will you pass it on”

    In Fords own words, this car is a massive step up and through their eyes, this car not the previous model is the first real global effort.

    This is a car that has caused GT 350 owners in the states to question their purchase.

    Now I understand why.
    Being turned off ? because I'm still recovering from my girlfriend taken away from me.
    Let me grief my way for I still can't allow a yanky car in my heart one bit no matter how good it is.

    Rob myself re Miami ?
    Not one bit imo, timing in life is for us all.
    Sprint was meant to be for FoA& more so US had placed me in my situation, I wanted RSpec and was pinning for the "next" model upgrade alas we didn't know what was coming to us eh, I placed a deposit down on GTF and when finally seeing what it was, it just didn't do it for me no matter its 351.
    Ford had robbed us more like it for years and years.

    Looking ahead, as mentioned likely a dual cab daily again OR IF things did reverse end up in a mustang just for the sake of it , bang for buck but not cherished, it will be just a daily nothing more nothing less.

    You need to drive one and spend time with Mustang to allow it to wash over you.

    I must admit ive warmed to them.

    But as a toy, not daily.

    Life doesn't stand still, we all have to keep moving forward.

    I'm not sure i could daily a Mustang, low k's maybe, but parking (that nose goes into infinity), lack of carry space and the usual crap driveway clearances etc would make it problematic.

    for me it would be a weekender.

    The enhanced versions by Tickford etc would make a good fit as a weekender. Like Maurie, mine would be a daily and not making it so would defeat the point of having one in my case. Fortunately, I dont need to carry much. Slightly lower ride hight from factory could be tolerated as it currently is with my daily lowered FG.

    Deep down, having an Everest or Ranger makes more sense as a daily but....

    Lol you respond now after the phone call.

    You are just plan hardwork and there is nothing wrong with that. You represent the typical ford consumer. Dots need to be dotted, Ts need to be crossed.

    You are legit just hard work.

    Agree Colville, similar points for me.
    I have 2 other toys, I can't see the point having another I'd sooner spend the dollars on another family europe trip or other useful things in life.
    Hardly need to carry items going to work and back so a mustang could do and besides the back can take most of my needs if so but having experienced a dual cab for the 1st time love the practicability and the less care factor, mustang wouldn't be as cared as well for that matter.
