  1. Californians - front plate or no?

    I had an '04 for 9 years with no front plate, got pulled over twice for speeding in that time and was never ticketed for no front plate. Things could have changed since then, though. When I bought my '18 the dealership told me they had to put the bracket on due to new government regulations...
  2. Drag Race: Mustang GT vs Nissan Z vs Challenger Scat Pack

    Another Mustang drag race comparison:
  3. Drag Race: Mustang GT vs Nissan Z vs Challenger Scat Pack

    The Throttle House guys did a quick drag race comparison between the new 400z, a Scat Pack, and a Mustang GT:
  4. Best looking mustang ever?

    Yep, that's my fave as well - it's what I think of when I think of a Mustang. Here's another view of it, in a different color:
  5. Got a Mustang Wallpaper on your desktop? What you running?

    Some really great photos here - I love the looks of the S550. Here's mine:
  6. Show and Shine... Post your ride

    Took it for a drive and thought this looked like a good spot for a photo. It was clean when I started, but got a few bug splats by the time I took the photos, but I don't think they show up in this shot.
  7. Not a fair comparison at all. CVT Civic vs. Mustang GT

    Similarly, I have a 2018 GT (not as cool as a GT350, but still fun) and a 2016 Mazda CX-5 as well :crackup:
  8. Your opinion on personalized license plates...

    I'm not a big fan of personalized plates, even though I have them. The only reason I got them was because I wanted the black California plates, and it was the same price whether personalized or not, so I figured I'd get my money's worth and get them personalized. I regret doing that a little now.
  9. Never Normal Mode

    I'd be interested in a test sometime with a passenger in my car whose 10spd is badly shifting - I'm pretty sure that at least half the time I'm driving in Normal mode, most people not watching the dash or hearing the rev change wouldn't even know the thing shifted, because it's so smooth. Makes...
  10. Why did you buy an automatic? (and why I ordered a 6spd)

    A thread with a question like this could make sense if someone was considering which transmission to buy, and wanted input on the factors that people considered when making their decision, but the "Mine's better!" "No MINE'S better!" exchanges that this devolves into is pointless. I don't...
  11. GT500 vs. MME GTPE

    I have to wonder how it would go if Ford didn't limit the max output on the MME to 5 seconds. I wonder if that's something they'll change in an update, or if there is a hard reason why it can't go for longer.
  12. Why did you buy an automatic? (and why I ordered a 6spd)

    My story is a lot like others that have already posted. I came from decades of manuals, and hating autos, but the A10 was different, and the changed gearing on the '18 manual made me decide to take a look. The A10 works well - it has some issues that all autos have, but in most ways works...
  13. 401A question

    I think the color accent group item might be the ambient lighting, but I'm not sure. The accent stitch is white in my '18 with 401A, and there is the option for Midnight Blue stitching, but other than that, I think the only other time different stitching colors are used are in special editions...
  14. What makes a Boss 302 special?

    Yeah, this, plus any number of other reasons, so you don't know why the others on the track are there - they might be testing out new equipment or something, and not want to push it until they know how it performs. That goes for YouTube videos too. A while back someone posted a video on...
  15. S550 diecast collectibles

    It's a different color, but otherwise, I'm guessing this is the same car from Autoart:
  16. S550 diecast collectibles

    That's the same as the link I posted from Amazon I think I actually ordered mine from Mint Models:
  17. S550 diecast collectibles

    Here are shots of my Diecast Masters 1/18 scale in what they call Kona Blue:
  18. S550 diecast collectibles

    I'm guessing this is about as close as you're going to get (I wanted Lightning Blue, and this was the closest I could find to that). It says it's Kona, but it looks more like dark Grabber to me:
  19. GT500 vs Cayman GT4 Track Tested

    Nice comparison: Track Tested: Ford Shelby GT500 vs. Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 - Hagerty Media
  20. Mystery icon light

    Or #61? that has a drop in it. Looks to be a rain sensor.
