- Background & Plans
I purchased the car with all of the current mods on it. It was a trade-in at a Ford dealership that builds their own custom package vehicles. Other than the automatic transmission, I loved everything that was already on the car. My wife called this a "mid-life crisis" purchase which could be true but it marks the 56th vehicle and the 11th Mustang that I've owned. Unfortunately, the previous owner didn't want me to contact them so I could ask questions so there are still some unknowns about the car.
Future plans are putting a solid suspension package on it versus the cheaper stuff that it came with. Swapping out the drag radial in the rear for something more suitable for playing on the road course on the weekends. I'll probably remove the 4.10 gears for 3.31s. Right now, I'm just enjoying the car!
