Grabber Orange GT500

Took a ride to my local dealer, Quirk Ford, Quincy Mass, this afternoon to check on delivery of a Fusion ordered for my wife (due in next week). On the showroom floor was a Grabber Orange w/Black Stripes, GT500. Car was ABSOLUTELY....incredible! Didn't even look at the sticker, just an awsome color combo in this body style. First one I have seen in G/O. Almost wanted to talk trade...but then College tuition reality sank in. Friend said...."You could forget the Fusion and buy this instead", as I pulled myself out the showroom door. Told him I'll be back to buy one, once all the tuitions are done...sometime near 2018 or so!

The Grabber Orange/black stripe combo is a definitely a looker. Unfortunately it is also a magnet for attention.

Yeah, and driving fast and attracting attention aren't really a good combination...

I'm guessing your White/Blue and Red/White GT500s are also getting a little attention. I can't go anywhere in mine without someone taking a picture, yelling out the window or giving me a thumbs up.

Not much on the white, a little on the red likely due to the exhaust note but neither one is anywhere close to the '04 MystiChrome I had which the attention was overwhelming and got old real quick. Looking back I should have gone with red or black and it would have been like any average Mustang.

I actually get more attention in the LOUDER 2008 Bullitt than I do in my Stealth GT500!

LOL

I think that is funny.

I was at a friend's place last weekend for a Shelby/Mustang gathering. Mostly GT500's, with two Grabber Orange GT500's in attendance (including the host's)...

And, speaking of driving fast with high profile cars, that's why my car is a low-key alloy gray (and supercharged) sleeper GT as you can see below...

Here's a group shot from our gathering so you can see all the Shelby/Mustangs and even a Ford GT in the middle...

Wow. White stripes look surprising good on Grabber Orange. I'd assumed that the stripes would have been black before I saw the pix. Very cool.
