  1. 2021 Mustang Mach 1 Laps Nurburgring in 7:58.29 Min - by Sport Auto

    Was this car running Cup 2 tires? I don't see much aero here either. Was this just a base Mach 1?
  2. Coming from MOPAR to Mustang. Too much of a sports car???

    I considered the Challenger as well as the Mustang and I absolutely loved both. Looking at the challenger makes me weak at the knees, especially the 392 Widebody, not that the Mustang isn't a jaw dropper either. I got a better deal on the Mustang and the rev happy nature of the Coyote, better...
  3. Mustang S550! Is it a pony car or a sports car

    My mother has a P100D Ludicrous mode, and while it is insane, face melting actually, comparing an EV is to an ICE car is like comparing a jet to a propeller aircraft, it's all relative. I prefer the efficiency of an EV, but I prefer driving an ICE car. I also don't trust Elon Musk, that stupid...
  4. Mustang S550! Is it a pony car or a sports car

    My base GT is really a grand tourer. I would categorize the more performance oriented ones as sports cars to be sure.
  5. Why DIDN'T you get a camaro?

    I have quite of bit of seat time in both. My wife and I got an upgrade on our rental and granted, it was a 4 pot, but the Camaro's handling was sublime. While my Mustang handles well, it is not at the level at the Camaro. With mods, yes, it will be every bit the equal. Where the Camaro fell...
  6. This car never ceases to amaze me.

    I had to do a drive from Round Rock to Katy and I averaged 28mpg with 500 miles on the car. It's a fantastic long distance cruiser.
  7. How many of us men without hair own S550s?

    Full head of brown hair with a bushy red beard.
  8. Threats to our Prize Possesions [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    How do these always end in politics? I am here for Mustang stuff, not to watch people go at it, I see enough of that in real life.
  9. New seats installed today

    How am I just finding out about Katzkin? $1900 looks very reasonable to recover the seats, this is high up on my list now.
  10. On a scale of 1-10, how bad of an idea is buying a new S550 in the next 6 months, and other buying questions

    Totally get it, my wife is 6'2" and I am 6'3" and our son is a year old, so it is a rear facing seat. I would say that I am not even attempting to get his seat into the car until he is front facing in a year. Thankfully my wife has a big car, so none of this is ever an issue.
  11. What's so Special about a California???????

    I honestly wish I had gotten the CS package for the grille alone. I wish it was't $1k+ to put a grille on a car.
  12. On a scale of 1-10, how bad of an idea is buying a new S550 in the next 6 months, and other buying questions

    If this is your primary family car, I would even bother test driving one. I only get away with it because my son very seldomly goes out in the Mustang.
  13. Front license plates

    I practically live in Hutto and WilCo Sheriff has nothing better to do than hide on the really fun roads and wait.
  14. What impact will battery weight have on future real Mustangs if Hybrid or full EV?

    I see a couple of ways forward with EVs. Clearly lithium mining is not sustainable, but the battery packs are good for about 400k miles, so at least they last. That said, battery technology is coming a long way very quickly. If people could just get over the stigma, nuclear power is very clean...
  15. Front license plates

    I have been told by my neighbor, a local police officer, that Williamson County Sheriff loves looking for cars like Mustangs and Camaros with no front plates. I am just going to bite the bullet and have it installed. My soul hurts.
  16. Would you change you mind if you could reverse your Mustang Purchase?

    There is only one car I would have bought instead, the BMW 135is that I stupidly sold 3 years ago, but I can't find it, and there were only 500 coupes made and they are nearly as much as my Mustang is. That said, these V8 muscle cars are the last of a dying breed and I intend to keep mine forever.
  17. Whats a Little Thing You Love and a Little Thing You Hate?

    Love? The car itself, even in base GT form, is an absolute riot. The 301a is a fantastic package, and the car itself is a blank canvas for me to mod. Dislike? The stock 18" wheels, I really want wide 19" wheels with better tires. Also, I want the California Special grille, but it is $1k+ for...
  18. Is she totaled?

    I had a similar accident in my Mini, it cost $13.5k to fix, but it came out good as new. I think you are fine. Best advice, don't post any more here and hire a lawyer and sue their insurance company for the diminished value of the car.
  19. Car Seats and My Mustang Dream

    I actually just bought my GT when my son was 7 months old. I haven’t even bothered with the car seat as my wife is 6’2” and I am 6’4”. She has the current Gen VW Tiguan 4Motion (saved our butts in the Texas freeze) and the back seat is huge. We use that for all things baby as moving a car seat...
  20. Can a case be made for leaving it bone stock?

    I live next to Highway 130 in Texas, which has the fastest speed limit in the country and even I am keeping it to the Ford Power Pack and catback as I haven’t even been able to touch the top of 3rd. All mods though will be for handling, like wheels and tires (probably PP2 take offs), suspension...
