2006 Ford Mustang GT

2006 FORD MUSTANG GT BACKGROUND
After completely restyling the Mustang in 2005, Ford sold 170,000 of the new "Retro-styled" Mustangs to an adoring public. The new/old car was an instant hit. Ford had done a terrific job of nailing the "retro-thing" without going to far, or not going far enough. The new design was clean, unadorned, and very "Classic Mustang". I know, I love the look so much I bought one. With sales this good, and lots of media buzz, Ford wisely changed little from 2005 to 2006. Good thing too, because retooling for a new generation is hard work, and they'd just completed it the year before. This retro-Stang would soldier on pretty much unchanged through the 2008 model year. While the 5th-gen platform would remain, they reworked the front and year for 2009, making it look shorter and fatter. Personally, I didn't like the new look. Why would anyone want a short, fat Mustang anyway? But that's another story. These lovely 2005-2009 Ford Mustangs stand out as great designs, great cars, and a lot of car for the money. Today, on the used market, these Mustangs represent one of the best performance bargains out there. Good used ones are on the market for $8,000-10,000 today in 2017.

MORE TO COME FROM AMERICAN-MUSCLE-CARS.NET
WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED

We are growing as fast as we can, gathering and taking eye-popping photos of awesome Classic American Muscle Cars, doing research on specifications and history, and writing content. We all love these great cars, so it’s not like work, in fact, it’s a blast. But it does take time. If you see that we’re lacking in some area, we just don’t have the photos and/or content yet to finish. Give us some time and as we get more eye-popping photos, we will continue to flesh out the site. Join us as we grow, but please be patient with that growth.

PS: Special thanks go out to Specialty Sales (www.SpecialtySales.com) for the hundreds of eye-popping pictures they've allowed us to use. Specialty has 4 classic car showrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area full of gorgeous classics. We'd also like to thank The Goodguys (www.good-guys.com) for putting on some of the best car shows around, and allowing me to take all these great pictures. Thanks again to you both.
