California Special

The California Special Mustang was first introduced in 1968. It was a limited edition Mustang. They only made four thousand one hundred and eighteen of them. Production of the 1968 Mustang GT/CS (GT California Special) only lasted five and a half months. Most of the production was just special orders.
Recently, in 2007, Ford brought back the Mustang GT California Special. Once again their plans are only to make it a limited edition Mustang with models made form 2007 to 2009.
Basically the new Mustang GT/CS is a Mustang GT with a few extras. The interior upgrade includes two tones seats and special floor mats and also is available with a 1000 watt stereo system. On the outside it has 18 inch polished aluminum wheels, exhaust tips and lowered front and rear fascia.
The main reason I am writing about this is because my mom actually has one of the new GT/CS Mustangs. She got one of the first 2007 models made back in September of 2006. I love her car. It is Vista Blue which looks really nice. I'd personally rather have Black, but I will give her car credit. She does occasionally let me drive it. Actually I bet I have driven it almost as much as she has. It is almost 3 years old and only has about four thousand miles on it. That should tell you how well she takes car of it. I'm pretty sure it has never seen rain. And I know that it has never seen the months November through March. I just wish she would drive it more, cause it is such a nice car to have!
