Its the same as putting a Harley badge on a Honda or Yamaha or sewing a patch on a cut off denim jacket that you didnt earn, that can get your Butt stomped in my world. Phoney people suck, ......MFFM [ Mongols forever forever Mongols ]

I always put Honda badges on my Harley's so nobody would steal them.

I don't care much for the look of that Mustang. I'm not a fan of fender flares etc. I understand true race setups that have true widebody suspensions have them, and I get that. I just don't care for the look.

Lol, I agree, I would never cut into a Shelby like that.

Nope.

How dare you.

Similar ideology when it comes to my T/A clone.

Truthfully, My Mustang does not need Badges

My "RED RYDER" is the most beautiful Mustang in the world and it does not need anything to make it look like something it is not.

I spend a lot of time and a bunch of money on my Mustang but at the end of the day it's Just a hobby too me. With that said, fake badging is a no no too me. The cardinal rule. If one doesn't have a Gt model, don't stick Gt emblems on it. If one doesn't have a Cobra emblem, don't stick snake emblems on it.

For those people who choose to fake up badge be prepared to get your balls busted. Lol

IS PAINT A BADGE ? MAYBE SOME THING LIKE A MOPAR STRIPE WITH THE CUBIC INCH # IN IT , YOU SHOULD PAINT YOUR CAR ANY COLOR OR COMBINATION YOU WANT , THATS NOT PRESENTING IT AS SOMETHING ITS NOT, If its a base Camaro WITH A 250 , & you put SS or RS EMBLEMS or 396 Badge on it youre a Fool , thats a bit differant

My favorite is when people look at my 99 cobra and assume that it is just a GT with SVT badges. "nice fake cobra ***, the rear bumper doesn't say 'cobra' so we all know its fake"... Love the experts you meet when you own my car.

Just sayin, make sure you know what you're talking about before you start calling somebody out There are obvious fakes out there, but I don't even call them out. Half of them have no idea that their car is mis-badged. Usually clapped out V6 SN95s being driven by highschool girls that have no idea that they're being "posers" ha

Some people have no clue. They never look at the front bumper, or the car for that matter.

It doesn't matter how you paint it or what bumpers,hood you use or if you just remove all badging that's all personal styling like doing a Motorcycle up to fit your personality it's the darn BADGING that gets me if its a GT that's what it is no matter how much lipstick you put on it and the same goes with other models.
Don't try to call it something it's not..your only fooling the blind and pissing the rest off.

I got one of these guys one time at a stop light. He pulled up next to me in a 2002 explorer or something. His girl was riding shot gun and he started mouthing off to me. I immediately knew what was happening, so I popped my hood and showed him the 32V with big ol blue snake right on top of the intake manifold.

A little after the light turned green, I did a 30 roll right next to him and let him hear the tires and exhaust. I don't mind doing that to enlighten people, and I think he got the point

I'm sure he enjoyed seeing the amber tail lights that only came on the SVT models.

^ it'd be one of the first upgrades I'd do if I had a New Edge. Along with a very light tiny on them.
