2019 California Special

Not a huge fan of the new cars, but the GT/CS is coming back out in 2019!

Not my cup of tea. Plus, I prefer A/T. Apparently not available. Plus, a BLACK interior in a convertible? Convertible Black interiors are butt burners.

I find this hilarious. If Ford was thinking, they would have had a GT/CS model for 2018 - the 50th anniversary of the original.

I was contemplating ordering a 2018 GT/CS to go along with my 1968 GT/CS, as I thought it would be so cool to have them with a 50 year difference. When I found that Ford didn't have one for 2018, I ended up ordering a 2018 Ruby Red Premium GT Fastback with the black leather interior with showstopper red inserts, 10 speed auto, GT Performance Package, Premium Plus Package, MagneRide, and Active Valve Performance Exhaust.

It's going to be one heck of a car, but it COULD have been a GT/CS.

What is the most distinguishing feature of a Cal Spec? The rear tailights right?!
So why not do something special on the Special?? Looks super but a bit let down by back end.

It's cool that they are at least keeping the history alive.

If I was going to get a modern Mustang, the Bullitt car looks like a winner.
