I went on a trip last weekend and I was amazed at how many new Mustangs I saw on the roads here in Maine. New Mustangs don't normally sell very well here in snow country, but the new Mustangs have everybody overlooking that, it seems. They are everywhere, V6s, GTs, and convertibles. It seemed everywhere I looked I saw them coming down the road, or parked at roadside.

To say the new Mustang is a roaring success is an understatement.

I have to agree with you Steve. I see at least one to five every day. But don't ask Sam or I judge any '05s at a car show any time soon.

Yup, they're certainly getting to be a more constant sight around these parts too. Mostly V6s, will see a GT once in a while but nothing too regular yet.

I've been surprised by how many GTs I've seen around here.

So I take it you would decline an invitation to come up here and judge any 05s in our show next month, Sam?

There's more new ones here than Classic anymore, and it's a mix of all different styles too. Only saw a couple of GT's, and most of all of them are cv's too.

Yep, and I can't believe how many people are doing mods to brand new cars, even mods that void the warranty.

There were quite a few modified 05's & 06's entered in a car show in Front Royal yesterday...No trophies for them though! 2001 was the newest trophy winner.
