My neighbor has a mustang GT in that same color. Looks great. His is a stock V8 automatic. I believe it has 435(?) hp. I rode in it awhile back. Very nice torque, and reasonably comfortable. Sadly he's more of a "hard parker", so there's no chance getting him to take it to the track. Enjoy.
The GT is definitely a great package in this generation. I can be a "hard parker" some days too, but i'm going to try to make a point to spend more track time in this car. We'll see if it actually happens, but it sure is a hoot to drive. Unlike the GT, it's so hard to upset and you can pretty much point it wherever you want with full confidence of what will happen.

I've enjoyed every single Mustang I've driven or owned, the 1988 LX 5.0 vert being my favorite. I also had an SN95 V6 with a manual that was a fantastic highway car and daily driver. Great cars after they sorted out the nonsense with that Chinese-built manual transmission in the mid 2000s.
I've owned 4 "Fox Body" Mustangs and would love to own another one at some point. My 91 LX 5.0 Coupe(Notchback/Trunk Car) and my 91 GT Hatchback was a close tie for favorite. I had an ex-girlfriend that had an SN95 V6 with a manual too and it was fun for being such a gutless motor.
So far i'm about a month in to it and it has been the most enjoyable daily i've had since I daily drove the Pathfinder. It's hilarious how quick it is, yet I get 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway out of it no matter how hard I drive it. It's the perfect balance for a fun daily driver, which is what the Q50 never quite did right. I think I could've found it in something else as well, but this has definitely checked all the right boxes.
