  1. Look at these plugs!

    These days, scotch brite or some 600 grit sandpaper and some carburetor cleaner will do the trick.
  2. Look at these plugs!

    The residue reminded me of a product called 104+ octane booster I used in my older Mustang. I cleaned the plugs, check the gap, re-installed them and run some more.
  3. Horrible to see this

    Some of us who learned to drive in the 60's and 70's had to take driver's education courses during hi school. In those classes, we watched videos of car wrecks. One movie title was Signal 30, I think. Gory and sobering stuff was shown, as is these pictures and video. To this day, a friend of...
  4. Rear end clunk solved!

    87 octane? In a GT? Sacrilege!
  5. i need high school chick advice please

    Been laughing at this thread... Perhaps I'm too old or whatever, but I found back in my single days that asking chicks out for the first time, I'd go to a place like Chili's. It was always was a good way to get acquainted. Nothing serious, just chats. The rest, if you're still interested in...
  6. Are Mustangs Dangerous?

    I suppose stupid or ignorant can be relative terms that depend on the situation and the person involved. Those of us who have been in the middle east had to learn how to drive as the people do there. Which would not function here in the states. So, yes I was a stupid and ignorant driver over...
  7. Are Mustangs Dangerous?

    Are stupid drivers more dangerous?
  8. Spun my GT PP1 on the strip

    First thought that came to mind after watching, was Obi Wan Kenobi saying "Another happy landing". Nice save, there. Another learning experience.
  9. Street racers....go to the track

    Support your local (or closest) drag strip or track. Too bad for the car, but Co-Part will likely have another donor, and traffic court will have a few "customers"
  10. Delivered! Don’t touch!

    For us car guys, there's not much more thrilling than picking up a new car! Maybe I'm warped, but I smile each time I drive mine... Congrats!
  11. This is why…

    That.... thing.... on the back; is it some sort of air brake or speed diminishing apparatus?
  12. Insurance Premiums

    Mine is $1,300 in Louisiana, age 63. I wonder if the states with lower insurance costs has tort reform. Louisiana does not.
  13. I think my engine is on it's way out

    Just wondering if your tech will open up the filter and inspect it. I know that sometimes metal particles can be seen in the oil, but this is just another step in the inspection process.
  14. Let's discuss windshield wipers

    I use Rain-X blades and washer fluid. No problems
  15. 2019 GT feels sluggish!

    There's several things to consider, but I'd be more inclined to look at some simple things such as the gas you're using. Is the octane rating at 93? Also, I once got what I call a "bad batch" of gas at one of the stations I use. To remedy that, I put about 10 oz. of Seafoam in my tank, took it...
  16. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Now that Hurricane Ida has gone, I took her out to stretch her legs and then a well needed bath.
  17. Hurricane Ida

    One of the things that sucks is not only waiting for the inevitable, is that it will hit hard when it gets dark around here
  18. What type of loctite for front spindle?

    Blue, any other type and you'll pay the devil to remove them next time.
  19. No stripes .............. No emblems (claps)

    Old skool... we used to like to build sleepers so whoever decided they wanted to race me had a bit of a surprise.
  20. Anyone added a 50th anniv emblem to the tail panel on their 2015?

    Many of us who had driver's licenses, some money, and a bit of mechanical ability in the 60's and 70's often took the Camaros, Mustangs, Novas, Vegas, etc. and swapped engines and drive trains. There were/are cars out there that were passed off as the real deal. I don't have a problem with...
