We Made the List

Recommended Posts

I just received my 4/09 Mustang Monthly. The cover story highlights the 45 Most Significant Mustangs of All Time, to go along the April 17th 45th birthday of the Mustang. :party2:

 

It seems like us SGT owners are usually overlooked in favor of the GT 500, KR and SS models. Not his time. We are # 31 on their list, comparing us to the GT 350 that was produced by Shelby ,pre-title, back in the 60s :happy feet: This the same comparison I always make when people realize my SGT is not a GT 500 or just a stripe job on a Mustang GT.

 

The only problem I have with their story is that they chose a slower white car instead of the faster black one for the photo. Oh well, at least it is smoking the tires :peelout:

 

 

:hysterical:

Black...white...we all know the blue verts are fastest anyway...LOL

 

They did give you a nod in the caption to the photo. :happy feet: No mention was made of blue performance. Didn't want to hurt your feelings?? :stirpot:

but my blue vert has the s/c now, it must be faster! surely the s/c is enough to overpower the fasterness you get from the darker color?

 

sorry I was comparing your apple to my orange

I believe you are correct in the Shelby gt the blue is the fastest but with the GT500 I believe it has to do with the extra didgets on the side stripes and the single colour on the hood and trunk :headscratch:

DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF YOU CAN PICK THIS ISSUE OF MUSTANG MONTHLY AT YOUR

LOCAL BOARDERS BOK STORE OR MAGAZINE SHOP.

 

THANKS, SCOTTY

 

I don't know about that but here in Utah I used to buy mine at the area Wal Mart Super Centers before I subscribed. Sometimes I'd have to visit several stores before I found one. I know I've seen them there recently, too.

You bet, Scotty. The snow has retreated more every day :happy feet: The canyon has been bone dry and snow free for about 2 weeks now. We have been in the 50s & 60s with 70s forecast for Saturday before a rain/snow storm on Sunday :cry: Any snow we might get now won't last so come on up. The UHP has a few favorite spots in the canyon so if you don't have a radar detector, I can let you know where they usually :hide:

They weren`t listed in any special order.

 

I posted the list in the exact order the magazine did. They had the 2010 as #2. They said they chose it because the car has been in production for 45 years and the felt it was fitting to make the current edition of the Mustang #2. I don't get it, either.
