Attaching a couple of the photos that were taken when we picked up our beautiful new mustang that you asked for.
Also attaching a few photos of our own “unveiling” that we had at our home on Sunday. Because of the rain, we had the unveiling in our shed, followed by afternoon tea, drinks and nibbles in our home and on our terrace. It was a great afternoon with 45 of our family and friends who braved the horrible weather.
The compliments we received from our guests were plentiful, they were impressed with the many accessories that are unique to the mustang, namely the picture of the mustang on the floor and the illuminated mustang on the door sill. Our framed picture of our car was met with interest showing the “pony” numberplates and they were surprised when we said that it was a gift from Sinclair Ford. They all commented on the fantastic vests we received and the VIP package. The vests are a perfect fit. Of course the men wanted to hear the engine run and have a look under the bonnet while the ladies were mostly satisfied with the exterior and interior finishes. Don’t know if we will ever work out all the gadgets though!!!
Anyway, Ed and I want to say a big “thank you” for all the work that you have put into this amazing car being brought into our country with right-hand drive. I can only imagine the incredible amount of hours and “brain power” you have spent, but I think for you it is also a “labour of love”.
Your service to us exceeded expectations.
Many, many thanks.
As promised, here is a short description of my experience with the Mustang so far.
The service from the Sinclair Ford team was first rate. I know most of the team already, so I was expecting good service and a friendly welcome. Well, they exceeded my expectations.
I always aim for an emotional connection with my cars, because I am passionate about cars. I can’t explain why, but I have always been and it is what it is. I think most Mustang owners will be the same.
The preparation of the car by Sinclair Ford was speedy and faultless. I was made to feel special from the moment I was picked up by Hammo at the airport. My car looked menacing, even under the car cover. Once it was revealed I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Then I couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel and kick the pony in the guts!
I picked up my car at the same time as John, who has purchased a Magnetic manual fastback. The cars looked fantastic together in the showroom.
Hammo presented both John and I with a framed printed image of our cars, which was an unexpected gift. This sort of thing just does not usually happen when you buy a car. I have never felt so special when making a vehicle purchase. Immediately the emotional connection with my car became stronger. I’ll probably never sell it…
I live in Melbourne so my drive home was a long one! I left Sinclair Ford around 7pm Thursday, bound for Melbourne town. It was forced to drive home overnight as I had a busy schedule on Friday. The journey home was not only painless, it was exciting and joyful.
I am so glad I finally found someone who wanted to sell Fords great Mustang product! I have filled in more Ford Mustang customer forms than I care to remember with not one response, until YOU Hamilton Urquhart 1 hour after making contact I’d paid my deposit and purchased my Mustang.
The highlights of the car are as follows:
Appearance – it looks better the more you look at. Driving position – Low, snug and ergonomically perfect. Steering – The steering is solid on-centre and beautifully responsive. The steering efforts can be increased and decreased via the mode control button. I liked the Sport setting on the highway as it made it easier to maintain a straight path and comfort around town for the light effort. Gearshift – Lighter, quicker and more direct than the heavier manual gearboxes of the past. The shift in the Mustang is up there with the best Engine/Exhaust noise – It sounds like a V8 should, with good bassy notes and a linear build of noise through the rev range
The engine feels responsive and free-revving, if not as angry as the Miami engine. It’s a different beast to an FPV GT or FG-X XR8 engine, but just as enjoyable. By the way, Fuel Consumption is sitting around 10 L/100km, and I haven’t spared the ponies (pardon the pun) so far.
Anyway, thanks again to Hammo and the team at Sinclair Ford. My Mustang purchase experience couldn’t have been better.
