Well folks, it's been 2 years now since we sold our 14 V6PP. We miss that car terribly. On to bigger and better things. When we decided to sell the little pony we picked up a 2017 Edge sport with the 2.7 Ecoboost V6 AWD. It was OK but we couldn't take it anymore. We are old but not that old (72 & 68). We just brought home a 2018 GT Premium 4 days ago. Of course it is Oxford White, so no need to change my avatar. Just be talkin' 2 more cylinders and 150 more HP with 4 more speeds on the tyranny. What a fun car. All the toys it offers to play with is going to be fun to learn. Bringing it home I could not believe the mileage I made at between 28.7-29.1 @ 70mph with cruise control. That was up 101 north from St. Helena tp 299 east 60 miles to home.
Good to be back and I will be exchanging comments and hopefully learning more good stuff about this little pony 2.
Later folks, Oxfordwhite

YEP!! Plan to, still getting to know the car. Got some ideas for mods in mind. Like to find some wheels but having a tough time finding ones we like that will fit those brakes. Doesn't need exhaust, with track apps it gets plenty loud. Probably just do a drop in filter for air. All I read says CAI is pretty much not needed. Maybe slotted and drilled rotors with some good pads down the road. Good to be back in the saddle.

Put the first coat of wax on the Littlepony 2 this morning. One thing about buying a used car, after a few days tinkering and waxing and such you find all the little dings and dents she has. After all it is a USED car.

Hey Recon, good to be "back in the saddle again". As you probably remember I'm not good at these here electronic new fangled devices. Give me time to remember how to get photos on here.

Home made Sound tube (Fake Noise) delete Saturday,
So for Free, just the stuff I have laying around, I got rid of the sound tube. Used 3/4 pvc pipe cap, some E-6000 to keep it in place and some duct tape, the tube is gone.
I will go to auto store later and get a body plug for the firewall to replace the tape.

Yeah I know foxbody, it's hard to believe. We took a quick to Redding and we averaged almost 27mpg all on two lane mountain road. Awesome car, all that ponypower and mileage too. Best our 2.7 ecoboost Edge would get was 23mpg on straight road.

So, I see some 19" wheels from a Bullitt for sale on eBay. Tires are scuffed but wheels look OK. $999.00 not including shipping from The Parts Farm in Georgia. What cha all think. I like the looks of those wheels. And their Ford also.

I like 5 spoke mags. I stated earlier that I liked the CS-11s but I don't like the fact they are 20s. Too rough a ride. Our Edge had 21s. You could definitely feel them on rough road. Would like to stay with 18s or 19s.
