I'm 39yrs old, and have been a car enthusiast all my life. I'm married with two kids, and love them dearly. I've worked for the same company now 20yrs.
1984 Mustang GT. Red, 5spd, and T-Tops. Sold it in 1987 with 12,000 miles on it, and bought a 1987 Red Mustang GT. It was also a 5spd, and had a sun roof. It never seen nothing but sunny skies. I kept it garaged until like a dummy sold it 2000. It had 8,900 miles on it. I had lowered it, and put Enkei wheels on it. Just a beautiful car. I just bought my 2003 10th Anniversary Cobra convertible. It is red, and has 8,000 miles on it. Has a K&N FIPK, 2.80 pulley, 100mm idler, a custom Pro-Dyno tune, Flowmaster exhaust, a Classic light bar, Eibach Pro Springs, & 18in. chrome FR500's on NITTO's. The car made 478.43rwhp, and 508.25rwtq at Harris Racing in North Carolina where all mods were performed.
I've been doing pretty good, stangs doing great.. driving it everyday(Fl=good weather) lol and just been studying hard in school and working.. got a new job so i start 2morrow, pretty happy.. as for the last time i talked to you, i think you knew about the supercharger i wanted.. well i decided to put it off till later years.. i took the money, paid off the remained of my 1500$ laptop, bought a 42in LCD HDTV, and the rest is going to be saved for me to move out.. I realized that if im still going to stick to becoming a Pharmacist like planned, ill have to move because theres only 3 pharmacy schools here in florida.. and all of them are over an hour and a half away.. all the way up to like 5 hours.. so the money is going to be well spent, gotta do what i have to do now instead of making my car faster. lol..
Yeah dude, that guys shelby Gt is looking badass- minus the missing mirrors.. lol jk.. but yeah we got those clean roads and decent weather. Ive been spoiled 18 years out of my 19 yrs of life! Hmm, but def take pics with them new rims on ur stang if u get the chance.
Whats up Dale! I havent heard from you in soo long. I remember you talking about the Razors, but damn this guy is lucky, buys a shelby GT, and then rims/tires/exterrior mods, and a blower from whipple.. man. lol nice pics, n thanks!
Your Stang looks great too.
Thats awsome that your brother is doing that classic, man I love the 65-68 years, I picked up a 68 coupe about 2 months ago, check out the pics they are in my gallery. Cant wait to see your brothers.
As far as your wheels go, to be honest I love the ones you have on there now, but if you want to go with something aftermarket, go with a set of 18" or 19" wheels, make sure to get a staggered fit, the best look.
I got the wheels that i have on my 06 from a guy in CA, picked up a set of 20" with tires, mounted, balanced, ready to just be put on the car. the guy is great, knows his wheels and has done alot of cars and will giude you the best. Below is a link to his ebay store, you can see some of his work, my car is in the as well, best way is to do it is what i did, give him a call, give him your car info and he will find you something to your liking for sure. His seletion is huge, it just depends on your budget. I got my set for little under $3000 shipped to my door.
Yeah i remember you mentioning his car and he got the razors on them.. thats sweet cant wait to see.. but i heard the coolest news last night.. my friend.. his dad had a 07 350Z.. traded it last night for a 08 Shelby GT500 in red !! im goin after my sociology class 2day.. gonna take some pics.. and im aiming for a ride in it.. i dont know if he will 1 because its new, and two i heard like for the first 500 miles, the car is programed not to make ANY boost at all.. but yeah.. def will take a bunch of pics if i do go there today as planned ..
Yeah i think both blowers i cant go wrong with.. I also think that ive done really well in saving so far.. I mean yeah, its taking some time.. but i dont expect mommy and daddy to shell out all this cash for my car.. i mean yah i know kids that dont pay gas/car note/insurance/the mods they do to their cars.. but thats them.. for me.. i kinda find joy in working hard and long hours to get what i want..dad told me when i was buying the GT that its gonna be alot of hours at work and gas money etc.. but i didnt care.. ive always wanted it.. so now i have something to work towards..ooh, and it gives more meaning to each dollar.. atleast when im older, ill know the value of a dollar .. thats how i look at it..
As for your wheels.. ill check um out, after i get back from class.. ive gotta eat and head out.. but yeah.. i wouldnt get "Shelby" wheels.. i kind think thats wrong.. esp like those people that put Cobra badges all over their car.. when its a GT.. :/ and V6 people putting GT symbols on their v6.. it annoys me..
Hey man, nah i refuse to buy another mod till the big two.. If you check the sig, it says im saving for either KB Blower or Whipple..(mostlikely KB).. and 3.73 gears..after this paycheck friday.. im going to have almost 2,000 dollars saved.. ITS TAKING FOREVER!! lol i just wanted to have enough money before my bestfriend comes back from the training on December 19th(Army).. b/c after that Month, he goes to Iraq for 15-16months.. i was trying to get all the cash up now, but my store was remodeling for 3 months.. so i didnt have much money coming in.. but if i wasnt aiming for blower and gears.. id do headers, o/r h pipe, and gears.. but nahh ill got for the two big things and then get the headers or catback exhaust.. how about you? anything new on the pony?
I had a great holiday, thanks man, hope you had a good one yourself!
