Hello everyone! I just picked up my first Mustang, a used 1995 V6. It's black, with black tinted windows, and I think it's an amazing car!
I live in Toronto, and I bought it from a friend's father. He's the original owner, and never drove it during the winters, so the car is in excellent condition. It has 139,000 km on it right now.
The Mustang emblems were stolen from the car several years ago. He bought replacements but never attached them, so he gave them to me when I bought the car. I attached them this afternoon and it looks much better!
I had the tires replaced today, as the originals were quite old. I bought some BF Goodrich tires and had them installed at Costco. I also had the oil changed since it hadn't been replaced in a while.
It was raining today, so I still need to thoroughly wash, wax and clean the car. I'm going to do that tomorrow. I'll post a few pictures after I do that.
It has an aftermarket JVC CD player in it, which has a trunk-mounted 12 disc CD changer. I'm not crazy about that system, but since it came with the car and it's free, I'm going to try it out for a bit. I also bought one of those little Cassette to 1/8th inch connectors so I can run my iPhone through the car speakers. It's a bit of a hack, but it sounds OK.
The windshield wipers are weird aftermarket monstrosities, so they've definitely got to go. Any recommended blades for this car? I'm probably going to replace them tomorrow. I'm also going to get some rain-x for the windshield, since I really like that stuff.
The only major problem with the car is the steering wheel controls for the cruise control are broken. I'd be interested to know how big of a job it is to swap out the wheel with a new one, and where I might be able to find a new or used 1995 Mustang
wheel, since I'd like to get that feature working again. I don't really have the space or knowledge to do something like that myself, so I'd have it done by my mechanic. Any advice on a steering wheel swap would be appreciated.
Since I live in Canada, and I plan to drive this car during the winter, I'm also going to be picking up a set of snow tires. I've found a used set from a local seller on Craigslist that even come on 1995 Mustang rims, so that seems like a good deal. I'm going to go check them out this week.
Well, nice to meet everyone, I look forward to reading this forum!
