We are all car enthusiasts, specifically Mustang enthusiasts! Respect other opinions, even though you may not agree. Everyone is entitled to their say, but please do so in a courteous manner. It's easy to flame someone if you disagree, but remember, that type of behavior is strictly prohibited. We come from different locations, we are a mix of ages, and our backgrounds vary.
