Here is another car related post, and although I am a chiropractor (and yes this is a chiropractic blog) I’ve been a car enthusiast since I was old enough to put Hot Wheels in my mouth. I’m sure they’ve changed the paint they used back in those days.

Tuesday, planetchiropractic.com had news regarding the world premiere of the 2010 Ford Mustang at the LA Auto Show. There was great anticipation to see the latest version of this classic muscle car, and I was pretty excited to put my hands behind the wheel (in the Mustang garage set up at the convention center), and snap some photos. Let’s take a look.

With the hood up, you can check out the 4.6 L 3 valve-per-cylinder V8 engine. As Ford says, this 2010 Mustang GT Coupe is the essential Mustang, with bold styling that remains true to its proud heritage. The signature exterior look is accented by Red Candy paint.

Baby Got Back. The 2010 features a muscular GT spoiler and premium 19 inch painted wheels with low profile tires. A dramatic glass roof (I didn’t take a full roof photo) provides unique look and gives both the driver and passengers and open sky feeling when cruising day or night.

Notice the dual stainless steel exhaust tips on the rear of the vehicle, making a bold statement and contributing to the signature sound of this eager pony. The sequential LED tail lamps are unmistakably Mustang.

With the driver side door open, you get a glimpse of the Fire Orange interior, which has Cashmere accents, and surrounds occupants with the comfort of natural grain leather trimmed seats. In the photo above, you can also see the rear 19 inch painted wheel with low-profile tire.

Fire Orange leather trimmed steering wheel (which includes convenient redundant controls), and five-speed manual transmission, and an optional Shaker 1000 audio system, which includes an AM/FM radio, and in-dash 6 disc CD changer with MP3 capability.

From this angle you can get a peek of the rear seats as well as the two leather trimmed front seats. The front driver’s seat has six way power control for maximum comfort and proper ergonomics (your chiropractor will like that).

The entire Ford Mustang display (Mustang Garage) at the Los Angeles Convention Center was wicked hot. Computers and flatscreen monitors everywhere, custom wheel in fabric options, and several smoking hot 2010 Ford Mustangs.

I also photographed a Smoke Gray 2010 convertible GT, a Kona Blue V6 convertible, a Red GT convertible, and a few photos showing the garage and optional packages. I will post the entire set to Flickr and will replace this with the link LA Auto Show 2008 Flickr Set.
