It hurts my eyes looking at that!

Congrats on driving the stick. I love having a manual, but I think for my next car that isn't a mustang, it will be an auto. I've driven stick for my whole driving life of 6 years, and while fun, it makes you yearn for a little auto action.

Sounds cool. Mineral grey is an awesome color. Standards are much better than Auto's in my opinion. I've never owned an auto car.

I think the pony package gives it running ponies on the rockers, chrome wheels, hood scoop and fog lights. Not sure if any upgrades in the interior or not

ugh the running ponies are teh ghey. but i think stick is more fun than an auto if you like to have full control over the vehicle at all times. and alot of stock autos cant hold the power that some of the engines produce(ei the tbirds V8 with the 1st gen 4r70w suck big time). though id like a 97 GSX auto, because you can brake boost it from the launch(hold the gas to 5k and the brakes, and it will built a good 10lbs of boost from the launch) and launch that sucker in awd and be gone. plus automatic turbos dont lose boost during shifts, so youre always making power in a race, rather than shift in a manual and have to wait for her to spool.

I had the Pony package on my stang. It was the hood scoop, tinted headlights, Mustang fill in on the rear bumper, spoiler, 16" polished aluminum rims instead of the standard 15". I believe there is an upgrade to the transmission as well...at least for my automatic.

tinted headlights are 01+, i think they did away with the 15s after 2000 but with the 16s you can still get painted/polished/ or chrome. and the upgrade for the auto?? are you talkin about traction control??
