Well, put it on ebay, sell it for scrap, or save it if you decide to sell your car, and maybe get another one of same body style. I dont think there in high demand. I can only think of hell damaged, or salvaged victims. Try junkyards.. I keep all my parts just in case.

Thanks on the doors. Slide the hood under your bed, lol. I would honestly probably check local junk yards and just dump it. too big to keep in my garage.

Hmm never noticed they have a different hood? Normally when i see a mustang and its a v6 i pretend its not there... Anything other than the 2011 and up is a shameful buy imo.

A body shop may be interested.

Where I live 95% of v6 owners are women. The few men that own them always look ashamed when they see/hear me haha.

Same as people when I rape them off the line but drive past me doing 60 in a 35 think they are cool. Like if I didn't wanna keep going I wouldn't still be winning.

Anyway on topic, I bet you could sell your hood for a decent amount. Specially if it is in good shape.

Unfortunately this is how I feel.

Had a really nice looking black 5.0 mustang parked next to me at work when I left yesterday. Black, hood scoop, blacked out lights, CS valence, nice spoiler, magnaflow exhaust. I walked out with a buddy saying it was a nice mustang, until I looked inside and saw it was an automatic.

All I could do was sigh haha.

Without V6's this forum would not exist. Economies of scale. 95% of the parts are the same, so higher production numbers means lower per unit cost.
3 reasons to like the V6.
1. Usually driven by chics, and some of those are hot. Good excuse to wave, honk or roll down the window (say 'nice car' even if u don't think so
2. If there were no V6's, we'd (gt owners) be the lowest end of the spectrum
3. We can afford the v8s because the sixers subsidize our habits

Funny, i had a coworker that had a 4.6 black mustang he parked his car next to mine. I asked him if it was auto or stick, he said automatic. I casually walked over started my car and moved my car away from his, i was just messing with him he couldnt take a joke at the time we had just gotten off a 14 hour work shift. Rest of the co workers thought was hilarious as did i.

hahaha. That is funny.

I know people hate me when I say it, but it really doesn't take anywhere near the same level of skill to drive an automatic as a stick. I know, I've driven autos, you put the gas pedal down, and hold on. The car does the rest. There is no fethering the clutch, or the gas, or having to decide what gear to go into, it is just punch the pedal and go. Manuals require much more skill, even then, some people that drive manuals, still drive them terrible.

I think it takes more practice than skill to drive a manual well...after a lot of practice it kinda becomes just second nature...also don't hate on automatics because they almost certainly faster at the track....maybe not quite as fun but certainly faster....also I hate driving my gt500 in bumper to bumper traffic that's when I wish I was driving my old "automatic" 11' 5.0 lol...there are certainly pros and cons to both

I agree and dont. There are some people like my uncle, who has had his 350Z since it came off the lot new in 2004 and in an hour i was already out driving him in his own car that he has been driving for years. Some people just never will drive manuals well. Just like no matter how hard I practice I won't ever be able to do what Toby hawk does. Not that good at skateboarding. I don't doubt an automatic will have faster track times, but it also isn't as skilled required. When driving a manual you have a higher chance of human error. Automatics you rely a lot more on the car. I rarely am in bumper to bumper traffic, but I agree it isn't fun, at the same time you didn't buy the car because it was easy to drive in bumper to bumper traffic. If you did, you might have got the wrong car .

When I bought an SS a couple year back, I chose the auto because there was a significant difference in 0-60 (0.4 seconds).
I've never seen a documented difference on the auto vs manual 5.0, so got the stick forte fun factor.
Are you guys referring to the consistency of the auto, or does someone have documented proof of a difference? Stock is 4.3, car mags are hitting it and te tests I've seen we're manuals from what I recall.

Autos R faster on the drag strip but they arent any faster on an autocross or road course. Autos are good at one thing, going straight and being lame.

'13s SST works well. Not as fast as DCT, but once tuned the response is greatly improved. I ran a local auto x and did well with it.
Purely talking fun factor, manual wins.
