I can not understand how someone can approach people they do not know and ask such a question. It is like walking up to a stranger and asking should I paint my house? How would anyone reasonably know?

Once a person makes the decison to paint, yes a question of color, material, and priming might be more appropriate.

Now, before this gets completely out of hand, I do thank you all for your comments and do / did take all seriously and will be material to think about and renew a spirit of patience and understanding. Thanks again.

You have recieved many thoughtfull responses to you "question" which you yourself complimented on. If after reading Marcus Gt, mrvandermy, and others you still don't get it then then I don't know how you ever will.

I personally like the 3d Carbon spoiler found at http://www.lmperformance.com/5884/73.html Its not too aggressive and not lame. Just right in my book.

That is a nice spoiler, however I forgot to mention that my stang' is an 87. Will it still fit? If it won't then I'm sure someone on here has another idea.

All I can say is, if you don't like the idea of forums, then leave them to us whippersnappers, Gramps...

And for the guy who removed his spoiler, I know it's not hard to actually do it, but how much trouble was it to fill and paint the holes? Cost? I'd like to do it, but only if I can do it right and make sure everything's plugged correctly.

Oops, I'm asking a stranger's opinion about what to do with my car. Crap, shoot me...

Boy did this thread start something or what? I'd like to add my 2 cents into this. I like this forum thanks to many here I have had many questions answered that otherwise did not know who to ask. I'm sure my friends don't know the answer to them nor do they care, everyone's not a car nut like us. But thanks to this forum I have learned about zaino (great system love it ) know what mods I will do next and were to get them. I no way feel that if I were to post a dumb question no one on here would berate me for asking it. I'm sure if ever I need help I could come on here and get a honest answer. That is what makes this fourm better then all the rest, sorry just my opinion. In ending I'd like to thank all that have given there ideas on here.

VintageV8,

If you would so kindly take a moment and reconsider joining:

www.turbograndmarquis.com or

www.boostedcrownvics.com

I believe either of these fine choices should fill your belly with riveting dialogue and your soul with vigor for your automobile. Kindly trade in that barbaric Mustang and join us this afternoon when we will be discussing:

1. Best air freshner scent
2. Best places to keep your tissue

Looking forward to your intellectual comments.

Last night I thought about the majority of thoughtful responses posted here concerning my original post. I think the Forum is a great vehicle as it allows and invites many to express their personal opinions and thoughts on a variety of Mustang subjects and in doing so, invites comment. My post certainly did.

It appears it is my error in that I believe my original intent was misconstrued. It was interesting however to see the post certainly had varied a audience and response.

Let's move on.

You want an opinion, you'll get it, if you have no interest skip those threads (I normally do...)

Yes, lets move on. Vintage has no idea what he is talking about and neither do we.

Could it be a case of a "Hair Color Monent" or "Senior Moment?" Does anyone have a clue? Bill?

Thread Hijacking.....Anyone going to the car show this weekend?

Good night Bill.

Sorry to be late to the game but I would like to dispute the fact that we are complete strangers. Maybe when we started posting' but through months of reading posts, sharing pictures and other things we have become a little family or community with a common interest - the S-197 Mustang. Asking questions prevents others from expending hard earned cash for things that don't work. For a long time I have been considering adding Nitrous. I haven't got enough information to convince me that it's a good thing so I continue to monitor posts from those who have this modification. That alone is worth reading a few frivolous posts. Several of us have even met in person and new friends are always welcome. I too am of the "Vintage" when Muscle Cars ruled the streets and my opinion is that every generation has valuable insights worthy of sharing.

Agree 100%... Even though most of use haven't met, I'd like to think we consider ourselves friends by association. And while I'm sure we all can agree that there's a little fluff on the board, it's certainly outweighed by the volumes of useful information.
