    OMG.

    Damn your car is double-ly sweet. And that is a sick amount of money to invest, but it IS A DEATHLY ILL RIDE!

    I thought I liked cars, but now I see I am just a duffus. Some dork who bought a Mustang and wanted to know more. But ya'll are sick with a virus. You guys drank some Kool-Aide or something.

    I could never imagine the time, **** the money, to make such a badazz ride.

    Do any of you have kids? WIVES? I would need an act of congress to spend that kinda money, and no concience as the kids walk around shoeless. Seriously, are any of you married w/kids? And what does the wife say about your sickness?

    Tons of places....used car places are filled with them...everyone buys a v6 mustang brand new then sells it....thats why they don't have a high resale value...

    Never start counting the cash you put into a ride, because it takes the fun out of it :(

    $1,700.00 for everything, including all applicable labor fees. :nonono: right down to the Ford logo with a chick on top in the center of the back glass. :D :nice: All mods listed in signature...and I STILL HAVE NO RIMS!!! :bang: :nonono: :notnice: Can't afford that. In fact, I think I've reached my stopping point in mods for my car. Cash is just way too tight. :(
