View 289: Ford Mustang 5.0

Back in the mid-1990’s, I owned a 1990 Ford Mustang GT 5.0.  Had a lot of fun with it.  Even raced the GT at ESTA Dragstrip a few times.  Alas, it became a little too expensive to keep running with two daughters becoming teens at the time.  Soon after, Ford redesigned the Mustang and replaced the 5.0 with a smaller more technologically advanced 4.6 liter engine.

In 2011, Ford reintroduced the 5.0 liter in both the GT and Boss 302 editions.  Last weekend, I found one hanging out at the Sweet Inspirations Cruise In near Fulton, New York.

A Sweet Ride: 2013 Ford Mustang GT with a 5.0 liter V8 engine in Candy Red Metallic trim and a 6 speed manual transmission, 18-inch wheels and Borla exhaust with chrome tips.

A Sweet Photo: Seven exposure, -3 to +3 EV, High Dynamic Range (HDR) image taken hand held which is why the ISO is 3200.  After merging the photos in Photomatix Pro Plugin for Aperture 3.x, the resulting image had a lot of digital noise.  I ran it through the Noise Ninja Plugin for Aperture to smooth out the roughness on the car. I elected to pop the colors a bit to go with the Mustang’s exterior color.
