I used to do most of my work on my Fox Body cars with the exception of a few things. I won't do rear end gears nor will I mess with electrical stuff. Those cars were relatively easy to work on.
The s550 platform is challenging to me because I am not used to them. Everything being computerized...
My daily driver is an F150 FX4
on occasion I will;
when coming to a quick stop put my left foot down fast like I need to clutch in when hitting the brake
sitting at a stop light reach down for the clutch
hop in and go to hit a push start button - but the truck isn’t push start
MM&FF was a staple of my childhood. Mixed in with all the baseball and football mags was MM&FF. I couldn’t wait for the new edition to come out.
They used to sponsor the MM&FF weekends too. My friends and I would hit them up regularly. Quality racing, vendors all over and a swap meet.
We have a joint account for household bills and separate accounts for everything else.
But mine isn’t into cars so I could buy a Whipple and tell her it cost $500 and she wouldn’t know that I was about $8500 on the low side.

MT82 went boom at 5000 miles. I had the dealer replace it with a Trans from a car on the lot due to the long lead time from Ford for a new one. The catch was it needed to be from a 2019 build...
Went for a country ride with @Bluelightning this morning.
We went out west of Houston and then north through the Sam Houston Forest. It felt good to drive the car. The last few weekends have either been rainy or I’ve been busy.
With an impending family emergency trip coming up this week to...
I hear ya.
I took mine in the end of May to have Ford do a consumption test. They changed the oil and marked the dipstick and plug and told me to bring it back when I put 1000 miles on it. The they’ll drain and measure to see what the loss is.
If this rain ever stops on the weekends I’ll...
I saw CJPP post a Mishimoto catch can video today and I am intrigued. I have the JLT now and sometimes its a PITA to get my hand in there and get the canister off. The Mishimoto one is mounted to the radiator support bracket. I may go that route for ease of draining.
Yep...the ones in the 2018 build years were anemic looking. They beefed them up. I have a pic in my phone that I will post in a bit showing the comparison.
When mine died back in March of 2019 I ended up having them take a trans out of a car on the lot and put it in mine. I made sure they gave...
I either distance myself or blow past them.
I live in Houston. Driving here is like playing Frogger.
People in mini-vans? They drive like shit. I avoid at all costs. When I'm not dodging the soccer mom's in their Toyota and Honda mini's I'm trying to avoid the people driving shitboxes with...
I lean on it being the lighting too.
I know mine, depending on the lighting and angle, will look off as well.
With that being said the thin paint and the contrast in materials of the hood and bumper certainly stand out on these cars.
