First of all, I still love it. If you can get your hands on one, do it.

I wore stuff out so I replaced it, it goes like this:

ProStop slotted / cross drilled rotors with Carbon pads - it still stopped great, it still stops great - check
9" Cobra R wheel knockoffs with 9.5" rubber footprint via Nitto 555 - made the car handle high speed turns with the champs - check
UPI RockCrusher handle - puts the knob next to my right thigh for olde school throw feel - check
Steeda Tri-Ax shifter - love the throws at WOT, kinda clunky with daily driving (I blame the long lever arm of the RockCrusher), otherwise, rock solid at WOT
Replaced the spark plugs, and yes, there was uneven wear, one cylinder was horrible (there are your misfires), and second one was almost there - fixed
Roach Tune (ProTech Lubbock) - gave me more low end RPM pull plus many extras in his 'Mojo' tune - check

I still love the car, pushing 59K miles on the odo. Only a 900HP TurboMach conversion could make it better:)

Huh....so people do use this forum? ;)

Congratulation on still being in love with your car man. I always wanted one back in the day, but people around here were always asking "Cobra money" for them. :(

I think moving forward the Machs may end up holding some real value. They made a ton of Cobras but only about 7000 Machs for each year. Glad I got mine already.

I would love a Mach 1, but I don't have the money atm. Maybe in two years when I enlist and get my $25,000 enlistment bonus...Until then I'm stuck with my Electric Green '99 V6, but damn it's still pretty even though it may be a V6. A mustang's a mustang. New Edge>all
