Damn . . . it's just a V6 . . .

Well i just figured that i'd start of with a comment that i get from most people after they first see my car, then they realize that's it's an automatic, smirk and walk away in all of their glory. yea it is sad, a relative disgrace to the mustang name but after i bought it for the $2,500 that i had, i realized that it has so much potential. Anyway, my name's Brian and live in Harrisburg, PA, right down the street from the greatest mustang aftermarket company, "CJ's Pony Parts." I am currently whipping, atleast trying to anyway, a 1995 3.8L V6 AUTOMATIC Atlantic Blue Mustang. I will get some pics up soon . . . but for now i just figured that i'd list some modifications done to my car . . . Exterior : Black Gloss Hood, Shaved side and rear emblems, black/blue projector halo headlights. Interior : blue/silver fully vinyled doors, dash, and center console; blue/silver kenwood deck, white AC backlay, chrome doorpins, headlight knob, defrost switch. Engine : K&N CAI (which i learned to install from this site ) . . .thanks for viewing my post, hope to talk to some of you guys soon

Re: Damn . . . it's just a V6 . . .

the auto is the slowest, but you can do a good bit to it. You just need to sit down and decide what you want out of it and then work towards it. They have run 10s.... so you can go just about as far as you will want. Its not that expensive either, not really at least.

Re: Damn . . . it's just a V6 . . .

automatics are fine, saves all that effort changing gears, I had an Automatic GT til I totaled her in June, now I have a Ram truck and a 300M Chrysler, both are autos, truck is a 5 speed auto, 300M is a 4 speed automatic, also a v6, 3.5L 4 valve, 240 hp one. there are v6s, and then there are V6s.

That might be true for most of the guys, but with the roles reversed (in this household), when I get my *first* Mustang for my bday coming up, I hope my fiance knows I will not be holding his hand, its *gotta* be a 5sd. I learned to actually shift left handed to start with lol

Side note to avoid any 'shes anti auto', Im not, I just prefer a clutch, and I find it funny when someone told me to not get a racing clutch b/c it would give me a 'big left leg' being a female, I told him 'how do you think I skate (goofyfoot). hehe

Welcome to the site, Ive been here the past few days, and its quite resourcful as well everyone seems to be helpful and welcoming.

<avoid spelling errors its 5am and I cant sleep>

Re: Damn . . . it's just a V6 . . .

The V6 thing, we can live with. Hell, I have 1.5 liters less displacement and two cylinders less than you and people seemed to welcome me here.

As for the automatic thing, don't worry you can fix that. It just takes some parts, time, and tools and you can be actually enjoying your driving experience unlike those lemming automatic drivers.
