A true driving enthusiast, Keith Mellen flew to the Steeda Autosports Campus in Pompano Beach Florida from his home in Joliet, Illinois to take delivery of his 2006 Steeda Q convertible. Even though he is based out of Illinois, Keith saw Dean Sellers Ford, located in the Detroit suburb of Troy Michigan, on the Steeda website.
After talking to Christie Parker, the dealership’s leading salesperson and Steeda specialist he decided to order a fully loaded Steeda Q convertible, complete with the Steeda performance hood and 14″ Brembo front brakes. The Mustang GT convertible was built in late August at the Auto Alliance Plant in Flat Rock, Michigan and dropped shipped to the Steeda Campus.
The convertible is part of the first run of 2006 Mustangs being built into serialized Steeda Q cars. Upon taking delivery, Keith’s last question to Steeda New Vehicle Specialist, Mike Morella was, ” Where is the Florida Turnpike?” ” About 1/2 mile west of here” Mike answered. Keith put the top down, fired up his Steeda, turned west towards the turnpike to begin his drive north to Joliet, Illinois.
