Unfortunately, it's the ones driving a POS that have absolutely no respect for someone else's vehicle, even more so if it's a vehicle that is taken care of.

A few years back, I had someone park right up next to me, and leave a HUGE dent in my door. I had my car less than a week. I waited three hours for the fat dirty slob to come out of the mall!

Re: What did you do with your Mustang today

Today I took my car out for a test drive after swapping engines, this is my second drive. Everything seemed great good high end power, didnt get it on it much since its a fresh build. I got it up to the garage and noticed a tick(loud) coming from the front cover, Im guessing. Im thinking one of the tensioners went bad. And yes it was all replaced new when we built the engine. Something I didnt want to do was a tare down.

Crawled underneath it again to try and find my squeaky noise. When I have it on jack stands it does not squeak so I'm thinking it's the wheel bearing or the axle shaft. And is this picture an aluminum drive shaft or stock?

Today I picked my Pony up from the dealership after having them replace a water pump, idle pulley, and the trunk lifts. All that parts and labor cost nearly $900!! Good thing all I had to pay was the $100 deductible. Also got a transmission flush, that cost $150 out of my pocket! All that's left to do is repair the convertible hydraulic motor or put fluid in it. Had to twist some arms at the used dealership where I bought the Mustang. They said the warranty would cover my convertible, which it doesn't. So I'm gonna make them fix it, since that was the whole reason I'd buy their warranty.
