When Less Expected Another Mod

I can not remember how long it has been since I did my last mod. In fact I thought I was prettty much free of "the mods" and had not asked for any Mustang stuff for Christmas. Then comes along Christmas. My wife handed me her first present to me. It was in such a small box I figured "Okay a watch that I don't need". To my surprise it was sequential tail lights from American Muscle. Installation was easy and they do look cool.

Thanks to my wife's surprise I am starting to think straight again - FRPP GTAs, 4:10 gears, underdrive pulleys, ..........

Didn't you know that once you stop you can't even have a little taste or your sucked back in addicted again.

What is it about the sound of a powerful motor screaming to life, jumping to the passing gear, and going. Or the feel of a car laying a parking lot signature that makes men smile and their hearts pound?
