Hello folks, new owner of a Lightning Blue 2017 that's happy and proud to be here. I have to say this car is everything I hoped and thought it'd be...special. More on that in a bit, but please allow me to preface this by saying that I've had Mopars, BMW's, and Corvettes over the years and while I get brand loyalty and such, I appreciate various models of all and always liked the `Stang. Been a Corvette guy for the last 20 years or so and still have a `95 LT1 coupe which is going to a new home soon to make more room in the garage. Have driven Ford vehicles for work (our fleet vehicle, a Fusion) and my dad had a Ford pickup but this is the first Ford that I've owned.
All of that said...this car has vaulted to the top of my list of favorite rides that I've owned (along with a `70 AAR `Cuda and a `94 ZR-1 Corvette), for the very reasons that I suspected that I'd love it. I humbly refer to it as, "The experience" of driving it. There are few cars in the world like it, in my opinion, at the price point it's at and in my humble opinion the primary reason for that is the Voodoo. What an engine! The only thing that I've owned over the years that comes close is the Mercury Marine built LT5 in the 90's ZR-1, as that engine also loved to rev high. I'm sure there are others in more exotic forms/cars, but this beast is a bargain for the class of performance you get on a track with it. Anyway the GT350 is more than just the 5.2, of course, but man I love hearing that engine. I could've had a Camaro, another Corvette, and the Mustang GT with the Roush package, 670hp, and all that for the same $ or less and I really thought hard about that...but there's more to it than just horsepower. It truly is an experience. I've rambled on long enough, just wanted to say hey and let y`all know that I've been converted, looking forward to being part of the GT350 family.
