and what'* funner than smoking a hott woman every now and then

a 1996 mustang gt was my first car. it was rated at 215 hp, which is by now means powerful. but, i swapped a 97 cobra motor with just about every bolt-on you could imagine, including a 125 shot of juice. it ended up being an extremely low 12 second car, but i would often have problems with it which meant mad $$$ spent. so just this past May, i got $5,000 for it on a trade for my SSEi. but i love this car so it was worth the (HUGE) loss.

5.0L GT is not that big of a fear ??? 215 hp?? ooooo, lol. All opened up and modded yes, but stock ones aren't really much to fear IMO.. i have a friend who has one and it SOUNDS sooooo fast but its really just about as fast as the ssei..maybe a tad faster

what we all have to remember is v6 mustangs are keeping mustangs alive, which is good business for ford and i give them credit for making the $$$$. Regaurdless, its something for us to eat up. Pontiac/chevy did a horrible job of getting firebirds/trans-ams/camaros into peoples houses...HORRIBLE JOB. In my area theres a jordan ford that has sooo many mustangs (all models ) out for display for ppl to buy. ..my mom was dupped into gettin one , hehe. i think u all get my point so im done talking ford up

speaking of mustangs.. my moms was hit the other day by a drunk driver.... she'* fine now but it was a bit scary when i heard the story. We just got it out of the shop last week and they did a great job on fixing everything..they even washed/waxed that sucker. ..which i thought was weird. heres a shot..



ahh one more point and i'm done... it turns out my old rims were 5x114.3 bolt pattern (bad in my case, but they are gone now so whatever) ...but what i was thinking was my moms car has that bolt pattern and i was wantin to hand over the rims to her..but the mustang is RWD ...does that matter at all??

heres my cheap chop up..



k..no more stangtalk :(

Great kil man. Them damn mustangs couldn't stand the 4.0 I am not much of an mustang lover either, but the new cobra'* with the 397hp supercharged engine certainly sparks my attention. There beautiful cars, but not my type. I will forever be a bonneville lover. I am looking to get a 2001 or 2002 ssei, either white or green. That has forever been my dream car. There is actually a few cars on my mind right now. Maybe u can give me some insight to what I should get. Here is what I have been looking into getting.

1. 2001 of 2002 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI
2. 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP(supercharged)
3. Mazda RX-8
4. Nissan 350Z

Those are my possibilities. Again, nice kill.

I'd make the $8k jump from the price of the RX-8 and get a Bonneville GXP!!
