Anything with an aftermarket "CAI" or lowered, plasti-dipped, or otherwise riced was eliminated.
So what I got was an unpainted canvas to make how I want it.
....which is bone flipping stock mechanically but Cervini hood coming and black wheels....not rattle can modded like a Civic.
Yes, I started looking for mine when I still lived in Californai. We were moving to Oregon where they don't have a sales tax so that's where I wanted to find the car, and easier to license also.
I just went on the carguru.com and at least here on the West Coast autotrader.com had 4 times as many cars as the other site.
I didn't even know my car had a CAI/tuner until after I bought the car. When I took the test drive I was totally surprised at the power it had because I had test driven other 13/14 Mustangs and this was a lot more power. In fact I never opened the hood until after I got home with the car. Mine was stock except for the CAI/tune.............with the stock TrakPak springs it looked like a 4wheel drive..........first thing I did was to lower, then wheels and tires............now it's on to the suspension. I agree about the blank slate.
