What's up mustang enthusiasts! Names Jeff from Chesapeake Virginia area. Just bought myself a 05 GT last Saturday for my 27th birthday, this car makes number 10 for me. Been in and out of the car scenes since I was 20, few of my notable rides 95 talon -> 04 srt-4 -> 04 STi -> 02 Mercedes c230 kompressor (still own currently back home in Mass but will be joining me here in VA as I don't really want to daily drive that stang)
I'm a navy vet, currently working as a supervisor at the navy ship yard. As you can see my fun cars have all been turbo'd 4 bangers and the SC 4 in my merc, I felt like it was time to make the transition to the muscle car world so I traded my 05 zero fun economical toyota matrix for this smile inducing 5 speed GT taking my merc from project car to daily driver and setting this stang up to be a weekend road monster!
Ill be reading as many of the threads as possible and will do my best not to be that guy that asks ever question easily answered via the search function. Any one in the Virginia beach area that likes to meet up and cruise let me know as I enjoy any car event and all makes of enthusiast cars.
Bought her with just about 62000 on the clock, she's a bit rough but I have always said anything that breaks is easily replaced with something faster or nicer haha. She has a few of the common problems that iv been reading about, currently the engine light is on due to the TB codes and the clutch is in pretty rough shape but both problems where negotiated into the contract to be fixed by the dealership. I also have the lose or hanging out drivers door handle problem going to see if I can find one color matched from a junk yard maybe.
For those of you I haven't lost yet do to the intro novel haha my plans right now is basic tune up, fuel cleaning, belt replacement, and optimum battery upgrade so I can go get some stock dyno numbers done. After she's running like a top this summers plans are cat back, bama tuner at the minimum, possibly an H pipe funds allowing, and maybe a used forum intake upgrade. I'm looking for a used intake because eventually I want to put on a cervini ram air hood.
Looking forward to getting to know the community and enjoy a few pics that look like every other stock GT
