  1. V8 potential problems coming? [ADMIN WARNING: *** NO POLITICS ***]

    You would be grossly incorrect. Lightnings are being marked-up 50k. Even Bronco's are being marked-up 30k...
  2. V8 potential problems coming? [ADMIN WARNING: *** NO POLITICS ***]

    Sometimes getting into these EV discussions is absolutely pointless. EV and climate change folks are so damn engrained into the thoughts of the world collapsing that they don't look past the end of their noses. Fact: The United States electrical grid cannot handle a 100% EV environment. Hell...
  3. Latest report: Ford has scrapped Mustang AWD and Hybrid

    No AWD and no hybrid just pushed up the release of the EV Mustang. I would not be surprised to see an all Electric Mustang within four years. Sticking another body on the Mach-E is not a decade long task...
  4. I hope not - Autoweek: next generation is last ICE Mustang

    Agreed. I think the only ICE that has any really long longevity (10+ years) is diesel. Ships, Trucks, Trains, Heavy Equipment, etc. have some staying power. As for performance cars that are daily drivers (honestly how many Mustangs are driven 300miles a day) the gas ICE days are numbered. It's...
  5. Show and Shine... Post your ride

    Thanks. Yup, it's a dual exhaust from headers through an x-pipe and out the back. I'll try to dig up a pic.
  6. Said goodbye to the S550

    An F-150 optioned the exact way the GMC is was 4k more, and the interior of the F-150 (imho) looks like garbage as compared to the refreshed GMC line. It's all good, though. Not everyone has the same thoughts on looks/functionality which is why we have choices.
  7. Said goodbye to the S550

    With prices of the S550 in the stratosphere in the Pacific Northwest, and the S650 around the corner, I decided to pull the trigger on a new truck. I'll never sell my 68 Mustang, and I'll probably wait until the new s650 and not the early refresh before I buy another one. I've been a Ford man my...
  8. My car sure does "ping" a lot

    My bone stock 20 with 8k does the same thing. I've tried a few different gas stations and have had success with Exxon. Any other stations and it will ping when I roll lightly on the throttle or under a heavy load. It only happens briefly just like yours. I don't have the "tick" so it's...
  9. Selling with Loan

    Yup. Usually I finance with my Credit Union as well. I bought my 20 GT right in the middle of the Covid Shutdown. Ford Credit gave me zero percent interest on a 72 month, and my CU couldn't match it.
  10. Mustang Price increase (2k on MSRP and $200 on delivery)

    I only looked at GT's, Mach's, and Shelby's. All of them went up 2k and the delivery charge went up $200.
  11. Mustang Price increase (2k on MSRP and $200 on delivery)

    Price increase happened yesterday. You can guess that used Mustang prices are going to follow... Good time to be a Mustang owner.
  12. Mustang Price increase (2k on MSRP and $200 on delivery)

    Was just playing around on the Ford build site and noticed that Ford has raised the price on the Mustang. My exact car is now stickered at 57K. Sign of the times, I guess...
  13. Anyone else not get active exhaust?

    Might want to peruse these very boards for folks that have been pulled over for sound alone...
  14. Anyone else not get active exhaust?

    Quiet early morning startups, quiet when I want to f*ck with a ricer and not bring notice, quiet when the po-po is looking for any reason to pull someone over... ... and loud as f*ck all other times. I love it.
  15. Show and Shine... Post your ride

    I refuse not to detail the 68. Regardless of weather.
  16. Has anyone given thought to this monumental change that’s about to occur? In less than 2 years…

    Incorrect. Again, never looking past the end of the nose... It also takes 3 times the amount of work to lay concrete (labor, time, equipment, etc). There is no savings. If there was, we'd be doing it already. Most major highways were concrete when originally built...
  17. Has anyone given thought to this monumental change that’s about to occur? In less than 2 years…

    That may be so, but again we get into the "we are not looking past our noses" situation caused by the bandwagon effect of the move to "green". Asphalt is cheaper to use than concrete. So we all decide that asphalt is the devil because it uses fossil fuels and move to concrete. Who's gonna pay...
  18. Removable Front License Plate Bracket

    +1 on the Sto and sho. Love it.
  19. If the new s650 has a v8 hybrid, does that mean it will be more expensive to maintain?

    True, it certainly doesn't. But, we are talking about a performance car that will be intended to match performance with others in the EV world.
  20. If the new s650 has a v8 hybrid, does that mean it will be more expensive to maintain?

    Well considering the new F150 Lightning tops out at damn near a 100 grand, I don't think hybrid's are going to be far behind price wise. Especially with a true Mustang nameplate on it (The Mach-E is not a Mustang). EV are not cheap and when the world is slapped in the face with a bunch of...
