We all remember the California Special Mustangs of 1968, a limited run of roughly 4,000 special edition Mustangs. Ford build California Specials a few more times through the modern day, but Dave Gilbertson wanted his own custom C/S Mustang and started with his 2008 GT. This 2008 California Special in Grabber Orange is bound to leave you in a cloud of smoke as Dave and his Mustang have become notorious within the Ford community for their burnout skills. Gilbertson even went as far as winning several burnout awards at various events. This 2008 has had a series of aftermarket modifications from BMR Suspension, adding a Vortech supercharger, and upgrading the front and rear brakes, plus the appropriate California Special decals.
