The Right Time

I have always admired and desired to own a Ford Mustang. My admiration of the Mustang began as a child and was fueled when a high school friend of mine purchased a 1967 canary yellow Mustang. I could not afford a Mustang at the time nor could I afford one throughout college but the desire to own one remained. After college, my family grew to consist of three children. Due to the size of my family and their activities, the next few vehicles I purchased were either family sized sedans or sports utility vehicles. My oldest daughter eventually moved into an apartment and my son went off to college thus reducing our resident family head count. My son needed a car while in college so I gave him my car and decided that we no longer needed two family sized vehicles. Therefore it was the right time for me to purchase a Mustang. In October of 2006, I ordered a customized 2007 Redfire Mustang GT which was delivered in November 2006. I am now the proud owner of a Mustang GT which I enjoy driving daily and cruising around the new Texas Stadium.

Your Ideas
So I owned a V6 mustang automatic.  The transmission could handle a lot of torque, ok but.  I was watching a video the other day with what was called a torque flight transmission.  This guy in the video pulled the gear selector all the way back, did a huge burn out and took off.  Sure the car is not as fast as new cars that the big 3 make now.  But it was awesome.  This is is what people want to DO with an automatic in a performance vehicle. I saw the videos of the new features in the GT, the line lock.  Cool and all but people want to do more with their automatic.  And I had a friend of mine that said he could show me how to shift an automatic like a manual, but the automatic in the mustangs was clearly not designed for that and you could ruin the longevity of the transmission by doing what people call "neutral drops" or using it as a "sport mode" transmission. The last Thunderbird had a selectable automatic, tiptronic or whatever you want to call it.  Sorry guys but the only way I can explain this is by using brand names from other manufacturers.   I don't know what Ford calls their stuff.  I think that if you made it so you had old 70s style to the automatic gear selector as well as functionality, it will catch on big time.  Most people don't want an automatic the way it is currently done at Ford right now, that is why they are often scoffed at.  Good transmission but doesn't offer enough features for sport.
