How much money have you put into your car?

As most of us know, modding our mustangs definitely becomes somewhat of an addiction. I'm curious as to how much money in aftermarket parts everybody has spent on their rides?

My total is at about $2000 and growing.

All in all, About $3100. Sad seeing as all i've really done to it is wheel/tire combo, and SCT tuner. Then all the little odds and ends, replaced the ball joints, and got some CC plates, and lowering springs. Oh, where does the money go?

About $1,000 in the 14, about $6,000 in the Z28, about $2,000 in the DSM, $0 in the 94.

Sadly, I have over twice that amount wrapped up in my last 3 race quads..

Around 5k in the Bullitt in a little over a year I believe. Just scratching the surface for what I have planned in the next year or so.

Around $3,400 on my latest pony. Expecting LT's and a few other goodies in December so that'll put it at 6g's and I'll probably stop there for a few years.

Haha, well after I'm done this year, next up on the list would be FRPP heads/cams/intake manifold/throttle body which sits at $4,200 (before labor)... So once I'm done with college, those mods may actually stand a chance.

Only like 500 dollars for the MGW shifter. I guess I am not into cars as much as you guys. My car is my last priority right now. ( I'm saving for a 2nd house instead)...

Haha, at that rate, why not just pull the motor and build the bottom end? I need to be saving for a FIRST house, but the instant gratification of performance mods is much more appealing.
