i had to go to the grocery store to get some chicken for my dog.

the store is only about 1/2 mile away, so i decided to take the mustang.

the parking lot at the giant is pretty big and mostly empty this time of night.

of course, i had to step on it a little to see what it was like.

i went about 1/2 throttle for just a few seconds and ...

holy crap that thing is gonna be fast.

i think i will be happy after the manual valve body in installed.

That's awesome. After the first few seconds of driving with my 408, I knew that the months of head-scratching and knucklebusting was worth it. Anyways, if you can't keep the beast, hopefully you can find somebody who can appreciate its worth and take care of it.

Ohhh-wie, I'd be all excited and jumpy waiting to see how the new ride will look in person! :banana:

Meh, the wife will come around - you'll get used to seeing an extra car in your driveway and it'll be no bigs. :nice:

After you figure out your trans problems tell her that you cant figure out this problem with your halogen fluid. Then you always have your blinker fluid after that:D
