Boss #686

Alright guys, I've been putting this off too long. But I had a reason. I got married 3 days after I picked up the car and then was on my honeymoon for a week and some change.

I picked the car up Weds July 6th and drove it the 300ish miles back to my house and since then I've put about 100 more miles on it. I can't really say too much about the car yet, except I do like the seats as does my wife.

I remember thinking to myself the 5.0 felt heavy and sluggish even though it had more hp than my old GT. I'm sure part of that was due to the fact I had the Roush suspension. But the Boss feels lighter on its feet than the 5.0 did, doesn't feel as big. Also, I need to remove the exhaust discs because I don't think the car is that loud, but then again my old GT had a full exhaust and the FRHP Hot Rod cam in it.

Anyways, here are the pictures:

Awesome pics and congrats.

Definitely remove the side exhaust disks. Even if you find that you don't like fully open, it can sound a lot better than the way it comes stock by opening it up more.

It'd be the one in Jacksonville, Fl. I'm sure there are a few that look alike.

And it's my honor to serve this country and to drive the finest car it has to offer ;).

I fly on P-3s. I wish I could say I fly them, but alas I don't. I'm only an NFO.

Is that like a JAFO? ;)
