New 08 Liquid Red GT

I purchased my GT at the end of August and was finally able to give her some good lovin this weekend... 2 days of claying, Zainoing and a coat of Souveran later and here she is!








The dealer I got it from had recently traded for it and I guess they didn't realize all of the options the previous dealer had installed. So I got tint, pinstripes, splash guards, a onyx/red shifter knob and chrome mirror covers all for free (sales guy didn't even notice all of the accessories on there)... I wasn't planning on adding any of these, except for tint, but I sure don't mind them being free!

First v8 I've ever owned and, man, is it ever fun driving this car!

I was thinking about pinstripes, but haven't saw anyone that already had them. If you have time, please post a picture that shows them better. I cannot really tell from the above pictures. What color are they?

BTW, beautiful job on the detailing!

Nice, I love the wheels, I really don't get the people that don't way the extra 800 bucks for the sport package.

No sport package for me, why? I would have a very difficult time explaining to the wife why I have to buy new tires for the winter. We rarely get much snow, but with summer-only tires, that would not be a risk I'd be willing to take. The A/S are a better choice for me, but yes, I like the 19" wheels as well.

Here are some shots of the pinstripes. Sorry for the fuzziness, they were taken with my cell phone. Thanks for the compliment, BTW!

Thanks so much for the pics! I was thinking about adding some silver stripes to my MGM. I don't think I would like black, but I think they look good with the red.
