Hey everyone my name is Justin.
About 3 or 4 weeks ago I purchased "my" first mustang. I paid 2k for her and have been happy with her so far.
here is the run down.
its a 1999 mustang
v6 with a 5 speed. it has around 133k on it and its red
I bought her with some problems here is what they are / what i have done so far
-the interior was horrible (previous owner used everything and i mean everything as a ash tray) I spent a whole day cleaning the inside, scrubbing it down, cleaning everything, fabreze. I ended up paying to have the interior detailed professorially at a shop and it came out fantastic.
-Next came the brakes (ill post pics later) they where done recently but the caliber on the driver side froze and he drove it like that. when i took it off the pad was almost gone and the rotor was shot. so replaced all that and replaced pads both sides so it was even.
-The car started to "buck" when i was accelerating. I replaced the fuel filter and ran some dry gas/injector cleaner. help a little but with research found out it was related to maybe having a bad coil pack. I bought spark plugs (still sitting in trunk) and all of a sudden (after a week) no more, and hasn't come back in 2 weeks
-did an oil change now just the last few little things like the drivers window guide that is bent.
But she has been running great, gas mileage is a little on the low side of what it sounds like it should be getting (gotta get off the throttle lol) but she is running great otherwise.
I also own a 01 dodge pick up and a 92 vulcan motorcycle so i currently have my hands full
Now. My father owns a mustang too. He has a 71' Conv (Red car white top) with an auto and a 351 Cleveland powerplant under the hood stock. That is his "parade" car. My grandfather bought it brand new off the showroom floor in 71 and gave it to him many years later (he was 5 when they got it). it has 52k original miles, fantastic shape, and "NEVER" been restored so its original. BTW only 400 miles where put on it last year
