Im not about to let this thread die...i spent like 20 minutes making that list!
HOLY **** man, like 15 grand, youcoulda not only baught a decent used GT,maybe even an older Cobra, but pretty damn close to a brand new V6. I dont even compare, I just hit the $900 mark, but i also have only had it since March 15th.And i dont make that much at my job, like 300 amonth,i'm 17,and my parents wont payf or a damn thing, but that's onlyf air since my dad is paying for the car and my insurance(which nearly trippled from my old car) but ibuy everything from oil and oil filter to my exhaust.I do it all my self. Plus i'm trying to save some money for college.
3.4" pulley setup - $150
Exhaust work - $200
T-stat/fan switch - $100
K&N drop-in (with home depot stuff) - $55ish
Pioneer 8400 (brought in from wrecked 'stang) - free
rear 6x9s - $50
underbody kit - $70
that's about it for now, but list will keep growing...
Yes, i paid for my car in cash. Like 11000 used in 2000. i make like 2000 a month but i have no bills. My mom pays my insurance now that i got into college and i got a full scholarship to college. My mom is an insurance agent and refuses to pay the insurance if i had a gt or even a v8 nonetheless. She doesnt know about my spending. I tell her everything helps my gas mileage, including my 4.10 gears . I know i could have spent this money in a lot of different ways but i dunno why, i just stuck to visual. Im mad now but nothing i can do. I havent done anything visual lately except the gauges. My last purchases were the gt rear end and the nitrous system which i think ima sell.
All I have to say Ganador, is enjoy it now. Cause I make more than you, but I have debt and bills and all the **** that comes with it. So the money I make isn't always mine, but It would be fun to take the cash and go beef up the stang more!
So hell keep having fun with it.
Thats ok cause ima have a ****in job when i get outta college where im makin the big bucks! So i will enjoy it as it will only get better from now on. Btw, im very optimistic on this topic.
I can tell your optimistic glad to see it all working out.
As you can tell I'm a pesimist, or what I like to call an optimist with experience.
So what are you going to school for anyways??
Aftermarket automotive business management....long name...
dude that sounds like an awsome career, what is it exactly
Well its actually Automotive aftermarket business management. I said it wrong the first time. All you have to do is break down the name and its easy to figure out. Automotive(having to do with cars) aftermarket(anything done to the car after it leaves the original sales lot, not just accesories, includes crashes, tune ups, anything like that)
Business management(managing this type of thing)
So im pretty much learning to manage some sort of business that deals with a car after it leaves the sales lot. Whether its a performance stores, a midas, or even a body shop. It teaches you the fundamentals of this area and how to suceede doing this type of work(end advertisement).
I've only spent about $400 on my baby. If I could buy more now, of course I would.
Heh, ur on ur way. If everyone could strive for the 10000 mark, the aftermarket on our cars would be bigger then the civics
we don't get mad when you post pics of your car.. just that huge picture with the hideous front bumper....
by the way... how much did you have to pay to get rid of that bumper?
Actually i still have it. Lol. Sits on the side of my house. Ive sold it to ricers like 3 times on ebay but they never come through with the sale. Typical ricer for u.
I'd say i've spent close to $3000 on my car. it may be the fastest 6 cylider, but it does look great.
So when your managing your own performance store you'll give us a deal right!
Guess what guys. I spent another 1300 dollars today on my car. Yeah!!!! I just bought this friggin pimp as sub set up...2 800 watt amps, 2 caps, custom box, all the wiring, power hx2, its gonna be clean although i dont like paying 1300 for just a sub..
time to put it in the GTP!
I changed my mind. ive spent too much money already on my car, to go to a gtp would be be a waste of what ive done already. Hmm...yet im still making dumb mistakes, 1300 could go a long way for performance...but i guess it wont be!
