A strange but cool thing happened to me this morning

I left the house at 7:am to go to the VA clinic. Going up I-95 I passed a Harley Davidson Motorcycle and the Motorcycle guy followed me all the way to the VA clinic. I pulled in and parked and he parked in the Bike Parking and walked over to me. He just wanted to know how I liked my Mustang and informed me how good it looked going past him. He said he loved the sound of my mufflers and asked me if they were stock or performance. I said Magnaflow streets. At 75 MPH I can hear the humm of them if I listen but I did not think they would sound so good going up the interstate at speed outside of the car.
He said he was thinking of getting a 2014 mustang GT but could not find one at the Daytona dealer. I told him mine was a six and he did not believe me until I popped the hood and showed him. He said it sounded so good he just thought it was a V8.
He still wants a GT stick though and the dealer is supposed to be looking for one for him.
He did cheer up my day complimenting my Mustang.
Ronnie

PS: I did tell him I have it for sale for one million dollars cash. He laughed and we went inside.

There aren't many things that make me feel as good as when someone compliments me on my car.

It's awesome. Congrats!!

At first I thought I was gonna get beat up or something

I was wondering why he was following me. I knew I didn't cut him off. When somebody follows you to exactly where your going you begin to wonder. It turns out we were going to the same location.

Getting compliments on a vehicle that you love (and everyone here loves their car) is such a great feeling. Even better when it's a girl that's doing the complimenting!

Yep, had a few of those. Even from my diehard Chevy friends. Although they still give me crap about it being a six haha.

But unfortunately the girlfriend is scared of the car. She HATES when I got WOT. I roll down the windows and sneak it on her from time to time hahaha

Great story Ronnie, same happen to me, one of my patient pulled over beside me in the lot and told me my car sounds great, I said thanks, and asked what exhaust I have and told him it was the Borla S-Type, he asked if he could go with me for a spin and I told him sure why not, he was shocked when I told him you can drive it if you want. He was very impressed and said your car is much faster than mine, he has the 2010 Gt Mustang grabberblue but all stock. That made my day and saw him for his check up and the whole time we talk about mustangs.


Borla touring, airraid Cai, Mac ceramic shorty headers, frrp x pipe, 2010 gt500 rims, 35 % tint and more to come..

I've got Streets. How the heck did he hear them over the Harley?

He had stock Harley Mufflers still on it.

It was a newer dresser and still totally stock. He does not want to mess up the warranty so he is not touching anything on it.
My Streets are not really that quite when the RPM's are up. It is pretty silent driving slow around the neighborhood though.

No, Mario could not come to this VA with me. I just went to the Daytona VA clinic to pee in a cup for my cancer treatment tomorrow. Tomorrow I get to leave the house at 4:30 AM to go to Orlando VA for my treatment. The drive over is usually fun but the drive back home is a PITA. (Traffic)

I was in Daytona last year. Went to Orlando for one of the days... I know what you mean about the drive back! The drive inside Miami was even worse lol.
