2024 Ford Mustang GT Coupe 5.0 6-speed - One of the best Mustangs ever!

  I have to admit it, I am an avowed Ford and Mustang man. I've owned many Fords and a handful of Mustangs. But the last new Ford and Mustang I owned was way back in 1989, a Fox-body 5.0.  Since that time I've drive many new Mustangs and although I've like them all I can say unequivocally that the 2024 is the best over-all 'Stang I've driven. This isn't the most muscular Mustang available from Ford, that would be the Dark Horse. But with 480 hp (you have an additional 6 hp on tap with the Active Valve Dual Exhaust as on the test model) and 418 lb-ft of torque the "base" GT is no slouch. But I'm no kid so I didn't drive around with the extra loud exhaust, and 480 hp is nothing to sneeze at.  I like manual transmissions even though they can be a pain at times.
