I just have to tell myself "Well, no matter what they do to the poor thing, at least it's one less Mustang in the junkyard".
You're against a coyote swap? That's lame. I'd rather my car drives nice and doesn't have 3 inches of play in the steering while getting good fuel economy and making 430 HPI just have to tell myself "Well, no matter what they do to the poor thing, at least it's one less Mustang in the junkyard".
I build my cars. I don't buy them off the showroom floor. You're wasting my time so if youre here to troll just go comment somewhere else. I'm really just looking to find the brand and model of these wheels, thanks.Then what you want is a 2016 mustang, not a classic 1968.
Youre probably living paycheck to paycheck just trying to pay for your bone stock parts that perform worse than when they left the factory. Just because youre jealous that someone who has more money and more potential to make their car have that cool factor doesn't mean you need to bag on their build. EVERYONE can rebuild and restore a car back to how it was simply because all they have to do is put it together. They don't have to fabricate or innovate any single part of it. So be my guest and keep building you're boring ass cars that everyone else sees as just another restoration. You're probably an old guy and I love it how people think knowledge comes with age. Go pick on someone else old fart, this young kid has a 68 Coyote stang to build that requires too much fabrication and thinking for your old age.No problem. The wheels you're looking for are available at any ricer shop, honda shop, or whatever you call that place where all of today's derelict minded delinquents buy their gigantic wheels and rubber band tires with daddy's money.
You guys are cracking me up.Youre probably living paycheck to paycheck just trying to pay for your bone stock parts ...
Thank you! About time I get some real feedback instead of dealing with that old fart!Those wheels are FR500 replicas. American Muscle, Latemodel Restoration and several other places carry them. There is an oem version available direct from Ford through the FRPP catalog in 17x8. Very common aftermarket wheel for the '94 - '04 Mustangs, based on a wheel Ford used for a prototype Mustang of the same above name. Ford has since gone on to use restyled versions of essentially the same wheel on '13+ Mustangs, F150's and other vehicles. Probably about the maximum size you can expect to fit without much modification to the car or expectation of rubbing would be 17x9, although I'm not sure how the offset/backspacing measurements of those wheels will work out for you so be sure to do your homework there.
Restomod Mustangs and classic cars in general are sweet, late model engine and drivetrain swaps even sweeter. I could see modification being blasphemous if it were a Shelby or a Boss or something special and rare like that, but that's about it. Don't get worked up about whatever some kook on the internet has to say to the contrary. Your car and your money, do what makes you happy. The rest of us can suck it if we don't like it.
Thanks man, some people just can't keep their mouth shut. Its pathetic how other members can't just admire someones build. If someone else was trying to fit a mustang body onto a VW bug chassis I would obviously disapprove but admire someone who is doing all the fabrication work.FR500 Replicas, as Socal stated.
Old grumpy men ruin a lot threads, OP. Your mustang will be nice, unique, reliable, comfy, and a lot of fun. Screw the shrew who is bashing you.
I'm hoping to be long in the ground by that point. :laugh2: Sweet Cougar btw.maybe in the years to come, those are going to be the only people who care about our old relic cars anyway.
Not me! I want to live long enough to be one hilarious old man and make everyone around me uncomfortable. Maybe by mocking the guys who put Chevy engines in other makes of cars...I'm hoping to be long in the ground by that point. :laugh2:
You do realize the wheels the OP is looking at were designed and put on MUSTANGS....NOT the "ricers" you are referring to...My problem is the anger I feel when someone wants to take a symbol of great American history, and put the same wheels on it that the crack-smoking, pants-around-his-ankles, rice burning, teenage derelict put on his lowered, ghetto cruising, meth delivery vehicle. Leave those ridiculous, cartoonish, giant wheels and pathetic, worthless rubber band tires where they belong; in Japan.
