Just looking for revenue. Many years ago I had a back woods sheriff's deputy give me a ticket that wasn't warranted either. When I said something about it he laughed, noted I was 500 miles from home and doubted I would show up in court to fight it.

I had a busy summer with work so I did not get a lot of play time in my Mustang… This summer I would only get to drive the car on short weekends between business travels and most of that was done at Bandimere…
Hers is one of my favorite videos out of the summer at Bandimere…
Not really sure why but maybe it is when the light turns green I can hear the tires pulling the track up...
The car still has its stock exhaust on it in this video... Sorry for the noise at the end... I still to this day do not know what was causing the rattling noise, this is the only video it's in...

And through it all, I met some great people with the same passion as myself for spending hot summer days at the track, as well as racing, showing or driving their Mustang to the grocery store for a bag pretzels… All in all it was a lot of fun…
And Thanks Steeda for the 2000 e-mails I sent you this summer and answering all of my questions…

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

I went on a road trip from Canada to Kentucky.

This is when I found out how much Ford got hosed on their maps for the built in navigation. You wouldn't believe how many times sync said "you are entering an unknown area, proceed with caution". Some were major roads . Several times I had to pull out my 5 year old MIo GPS where all the correct info was there.
SHAME ON YOU for holding back up to date maps.

Any one else run into this, or did they just forget to map KY. A big thanks goes out to google maps, every mcDonalds for the free WIFI everywhere. And Apple for making this iPad .

The trip was awesome, the ride was comfortable even on those 12 hr days, and the car performed great. Next time I bring 2 canvas buckets instead of those 2-5gal pails for on the road no rinse washing . They sure eat up a lot of trunk space as my wife reminded me over and over and over and over again lol.

Sadly not much. I fractured my right foot at the beginning of the summer which put me out of action for about 6 weeks, not being able to drive sucked. Then when I was able to drive, it was way too hot out to actually enjoy driving with the top down. So unfortunately for the most part, she sat in the garage all summer. I have been having more fun with her now that fall is here. It might be a little chilly to be putting the top down, but she's still fun. One of my co-workers freaked out the other day when he found out the 5.0 in the parking lot was mine.

Considering you were going to Kentucky, maybe SYNC wasn't referring to the roads. :hihi:

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.
