Greetings from south Louisiana!

I'm Bryan and here's my story.

I've been a Mustang fan since I was a kid. However I've been playing in bands not long since I started driving so I've always had a truck.

But this story is more about my mom than it is about me. When she was young the Mustang first came out. She wanted one but her brother talked her out of it. In 92 she said screw it and bought a used 91 hatchback. She kept it until it got wrecked in 04. She got a used 02 V6 in Mineral Grey.

On Memorial Day she passed away unexpectedly. I almost sold it then decided to keep it and fix it up a bit. So here I am finally a Mustang owner after all these years, even though it's not how I thought it would happen.

But still I'm excited about the car and I'm looking forward to being part of this community of Mustang owners!

So hi everybody. I'm glad to be here!





Oh and since I took those pics I replaced the headlights with a set of smoked ones from American Muscle.

Thanks!

Plans for the car (as of today!)

Engine:
CAI
Magnaflow exhaust
Headers possibly....

Exterior:
Wheels and tires
Mustang letter blackout for rear bumper
Body kit (maybe for this one)

Interior:
Radio upgrade.
Repaint interior to black/grey
New steering wheel (the stock one is broken at the top)
Billet knobs
Carbon Fiber inlay kit
Simco Classic Mustang Gauge Cluster

Now I'm not doing all this all at once but that's the plan.

Get the GT body kit(front and back bumper)
That's the cleanest look IMO.
The best sounding exhaust will be flow masters 40 or 10s with an H pipe, or that seems to be the most common vote, I love mine.
Btw the color you have is awesome I love that color

@ Horseplay. Of all the thing I plan on changing, the color is not one of them.
