Cool 4th Mustang . . . .

Hi everyone,

I just picked up my 4th Mustang, after too long an absence. Funny, how driving a USA built Mustang just makes you feel good.

I picked up a 08 Grabber Orange, 245ci, 5 speed manual.

My first full tank of gas (after the complimentary dealer fill) delivered 24mpg.

Other Mustangs were:

72 Mach I - Grabber Blue/Argent/Black, 351ci, 3spd auto.

80 Coupe - White/Red, 2.3L 4 cyl, 4 speed manual.

91 5.0LX Convt, - White/White/Grey, built-auto with high-stall convertor, 3.73 gears, aluminum driveshaft, welded sub-frame connectors, under-drive pullys, etc . . . .

I ordered & waited 6 mo for a new 1999 Cobra - & didn't take delivery after my pre-purchase test drive - due to it's unimpressive performance - the dealer said no one else complained . . . . About 6mo later the story broke about the car's issues . . . .

Other vehicles I have had, included: SS 396 Chevelle, Z28, T/A 6.6 Trans Am, Formula 400 Firebird, TR6, BMW 3 series Convt . . . .

The Mustangs are still my favorite, which is why I'm verry happy & blessed to have another.

Best.

Re: 4th Mustang . . . .

Thanks to everyone for your welcome!

I don't usually (ever) take pics of my cars (wish I had) - so maybe that needs to change.

No mods yet - the purchase was somewhat impulsive . . . . ANY SUGGESTIONS on some good things to consider? The car is actually quite a bit better than I expected, so I'm not too sure what I need/ don't need to do . . . .

Vaya con Dios.

Re: 4th Mustang . . . .

first mod is to read all about em and see what all is out there and decide what you wish to do so you dont regret mods down the road.
