Yep, you read that headline right. There is a John Calipari Mustang that can be yours to cruise around town in. But you better act fast because there are a limited amount of them.
Just in time for March Madness, Lexington auto dealership Paul Miller Ford has unveiled the car for the ultimate University of Kentucky basketball fan.
The dealership announced Tuesday that it will sell five customized 2010 Mustangs called the “Coach Cal Edition.”
So let’s see. John Wall has definitely gotten his. DeMarcus Cousins has definitely gotten his. So that leaves 3 left. Better act faster.
More pics and the specs coming right up.
The process starts with a 2010 Roush 427R Mustang or a Mustang GT, which are then turned into a Wildcat lover’s dream by Paul Miller Ford’s staff of Mustang enthusiasts, vice president and general manager J.P. Miller Jr. said.
The crew has designed a UK blue paint scheme for the vehicles modeled after the Bill Keightley jerseys worn by the team last year in honor of the longtime equipment manager.
An iconic “C,” standing for Calipari, is added to the rear of the vehicle. It’s modeled after an “I” that Miller saw on a Lee Iacocca edition Mustang.
The vehicles are autographed by Calipari and will probably all be driven by the coach. He’s driving the first one now, Miller said, and “he told me last night that as soon as you sell them, just keep bringing them to me and I’ll drive them until you sell them out from under me.”
The Roush version of the “Coach Cal Edition” sells for a little more than $71,000, and the GT version will be just less than $40,000.
So many jokes can be made here, so I won’t even bother. You can have at it.
