So, out of curiosity. Just wanna hear people's opinions. I love my Mustang more than anything. But I do have stickers on it, and I do have interior accesories. No modifications, mostly because my parents won't let me... So sometimes, I feel really insecure about my car. Tons of people have such better Mustangs, and it's torture. Lol. Anyone understand where I'm coming from? Ha.

My parents won't allow me to get a V8. So that already sucks. Haha. And I am trying to spend some money I get for Christmas on some mods but my parents will only let me get certain meaningless mods and are even trying to talk me out of it. I'm kinda stuck.

What do you wanna do. Cause you could easily argue that a cold air intake, exhaust, & even a tune can open up the way your car breathes increasing fuel economy :D

Don't let it bother you. Remember that cars are like people and we are all different. :)

They already said exhaust and all that stuff is outta the question. They will only let me get certain EXTERIOR mods. Which sucks even worse. It'd be nice if my car SOUNDED good versus looking cooler. Lol.

Window tint is always one of my first mods. IMO I like red and black together that would be a great theme. some chrome wheels would look good on there too. Is there any specific reasons they won't allow other modifications?

I'd say to hell with the stickers. If anyone hassles you about it you just tell them you like the clean stock look. As for mods for the exterior id say save your money for real mods for your next car. You will be amazed how quickly you can build up a little nestegg by just setting aside a little money. Then, if you can, get it in the bank and generating interest. At one point I was making 100/Mo in guaranteed interest. I make way more playing stocks now but hell why not? Even now I have a jar that i dump change into or stuff a 20 into whenever I'm responsible with my money. Since late October I've saved up 600$ and its all marked for mods.

Dad says if we ever have to get rid of it, mods make the value go down. And he doesn't like mods. He keeps saying he doesn't want mods on his car. And it's not his car... Basically he's strict on the subject. Lol.

That's actually a great idea. So do you think I should rid of the stickers? I have a few car club and car meet related stickers on there too though.

No ones Mustang is better than yours:eek:...You own a Mustang that puts you ahead of the pack. I saw your pics and your Stang is beautiful I personally love it. I had a 71 Super Beetle Vert and she was rusted up (ahem patena) but I though she was the most beautiful Beetle on earth. I took her to car shows and she just sputtered :lmao:at the rest of them. Usually had to push her off afterwords but....I loved her and that's all that mattered. People use to point when I drove by only because she was so beautiful.

I see where he is coming from, but as long as the mods are done right it won't hurt the value, but you'll never get the money back out when you do sell it. Window tint should be an easy argue because you could just say it looks cool and it will keep the interior cooler during the summer, thus keeping it in better condition. Next I would say shortie antenna and a 3rd brake light decal that says mustang. Both of those are cheap and there is no strong reason to say no. Basically anything that can be reverted back to factory in a matter of minutes are the type of things it would be hard for him to say no to. Right now what I've done to my car is: white face gauges, 3rd brake light decal, shortie antenna and rear bumper letter inserts (you won't be able to do those on your car) and the guy who had it before me put a cold air intake, rims, window tint, and exhaust stuff. I do have a lot more planned, but as of right now it is by no means a show car, but it stands out in the crowd of dirty, unkept, and older cars.

Thank you so much. It means a lot. :) And I actually made my Stang a boy. I know stangs are meant to be girls, and people nag me about it, but he's a boy to me, so I never listen to them. ;) I've been a Mustang girl since I was about 4. I love them to death, and so I do feel extremely lucky.

Alright, I will see about the antenna and 3rd brake light decal. Thanks!

My apologies to the Stang....He's just pretty enough to ne a girl;)

I wonder where the idea came from for vehicles to be female? Because they are AWESOME?????? My VW was a female her name was FeeBee. My Stangs name is WhiteLightening which could be male or female.....Gender frendly.

He/She goes both ways:lmao::lmao::lmao:

I know, me too! To me, since I am attached to my car, it makes more sense for me for it to be male, I guess. I named him after my hero, plus it's a simple name. I know a lot of stock mustangs are named just simple things. Lol.

Although I'm considering changing it to a female. Because I have female accesories on the car, and it's a V6. And thinking about naming it Little Red. Haha.

Don't fret, my parents were the same way. When I moved out on my own and bought my own vehicles there was nothing up for debate.

Btw, I actually got 2k over market value on my v6 when I sold it because of the mods...
