Boss stickers on a Boss don't bother me. Nor do the "factory" stripes or decals.

I'm not a fan of the glued on scoops and louvers. I guess the louvers had a purpose before tint was invented.

Like this:



JimmyM's is the best possible example.

Notice there are NOT a lot of aftermarket parts thrown at it. Notice the wheels compliment the overall look. Way too many people buy wheels that might look good by themselves but detract from the overall look. You might love good ice-cream and have a favorite pickle but it doesn't mean they make a good sundae.

The black roof and spoiler along with the black hood spears, grill and wheels are a brilliant exercise in contrast with the stark white.

I normally don't care much for hood spears but the hood would have been too large an area of white for the overall look. And they compliment the spear like bright-work on the wheels.

Jimmy even managed to make the GT grill surround look good. The V6, CS and GT500 grills look better than the GT because they use body color to separate the grill from the lights which is a Mustang trademark. But here a larger expanse of black balances the ratio of white to black better.

Some people take the word "functional" wrong. Take for instance the stock spoiler. This is not "functional" neither are RAM air hoods to be honest.

What about people who put a thousand dollars into their 210 hp V6 suspension and have no speed mods? Those may be "functional" but will they ever really benefit from them?

People get too crazy with the word functional IMO. These are not race cars people. Everything doesn't have to be "functional" Why not start taking all the non"functional" stuff out of your car then?

My opinion, if you like it, do it! Whether it's real or fake, functional or not, chrome or plastic, bolted on or taped on. Who really cares as long as the owner likes it?

I think my Mustang looks pretty good with the tinted out windows. No need for anything else.

This is totally true! The people with the hand gliders connected to their rear ends don't thing their car is "rice". I just like to stir things up every once in a while.

His car is seriously my favorite my favorite mustang of possibly all time, he put the perfect amount of black to offset having to much white, lowered it the perfect amount, and the cs front fascia has always looked amazing

God, and to think with all the time that took, he could've worked a job to afford a nicer ride to mod (I own a new edge), or with all the money that took, he could've traded in on an ACTUAL GT. I wonder if anyone thinks it's a 'BMW GT-R?'. If there's a God, that has to be photoshopped.
