Personally spending money on my car and my jeep is a way for 1. Me and my dad to get some quality bonding, since he knows how to do anything known to man when it comes to vehicles and 2. Because it's fun to learn and enjoy when it's "done". Lifting my jeep was an awesome experience and I don't regret getting 11mpg afterwords because it's not my daily and neither is my mustang so it's going to be just as fun doing the mods on it.

Bro, If I had six kids period and especially all daughters I wouldn't be spending money on cars. I would be spending money on booze, hard drugs and mental therapy. My wife and I have our two children and that's plenty. Lmao. God bless you and your wife.

No doubt you gonna say you love each of them more than life and wouldn't want it any other way. Lol. Better you than me bro. Lmao.

Naw bro thats what people see on the outside. Not what you experience. If you watch John Dies At The End, youll see what I mean. Like the part where he reaches for the doorknob and it turns into a big penis and balls.

Last I checked this isn't about drugs. No one in my household smokes, drinks or does any type of drugs. I grew up in a very damaged home where all of the above came before us kids or anything. I won't associate myself with people like that.

Its about modding our cars because its a hobby and passion. Its a hobby that won't net one gains in future for profit. Of course dumping money into modding cars is a loosing investment but then again one doesn't mod for an investment. Its not about a financial return. Its about the mental , happy return one gets from modding.

For me I associate myself with people doing drugs on a daily basis. Of course that's my job but stuff happens.

Yes I have. That's why I'm only rolling with a CAI + tune and that's it until I get out of college (then maybe supercharger). Coming from a guy who spent $9K on his last mustang just in mods.

Louder? Yessssssssssssssssssss love that V8 sound

That's crazy. Those mods shouldn't suck so much gas. You must keep it to the floor...lol... also I'm thinking your tune may be bad. Who is it thru??

It actually got pretty good mileage before I did that

You could have a faulty tune. Who Is it thru? That should increase mpg also so long as you dont have wild mods, and you dont.
