I'm a pilot for my regular job, and I have always been a huge aviation buff. Love the P-51 fighter from WWII! I know the Ford Mustang gets its name from the fighter, so I thought about a P-51 theme on my car.

Any ideas? I'm thinking white stripes, since the black and white stripes are P-51 trade mark. Roush grille with Pony tri-emblem and replace 5.0 badges with the pony tri emblem as well. Maybe white or silver rocker stripe? Chrome or silver center caps on wheels? Thoughts/ideas?

Ahhh yes... My favorite prop-driven plane. Kind of a tall order my friend. I think nose art is cool though. If you could just figure out a way to tastefully do it. Like I said, kind of a tall order. You do have the invasion stripes already though, I see. May have to just call it good with those, as far as the aviation theme goes. If you do try some nose art though, the more over the top pornographic, the better. In my opinion...

I don't have the stripes on my car yet. I'm trigger shy when it comes to big appearance changing mods like that lol.

I think I should start with the CDC upper grille (no snake emblem obviously) Roush lower grille delete and white stripes! This customizer is bad news when you're bored at work. Lol

The most tasteful tribute to the p-51 has already been done by Jack Roush. Good luck!

And someone did a Boss 302 LS P-51 themed Mustang for Promotional purpose for the Movie "Red Tails" and a Tribute for the Tuskegee Airmen.

I don't think you can get the lower grille delete


I take it back. Looks like you can now. Really expensive though.

Yea those P-51 themes are sweet. I'm not going to go tacky. Already installed the CDC grille and today and I'm putting on the "invasion" stripes (just white GT500 stripes).

P-51 badges would be cool. Nose art would be tricky and borderline too much I think.
