  1. No Love

    I always friendly-wave Mustangs. Reckon it might infect them with Mustang Appreciation Syndrome, if they're not already under the influence. The way traffic is these days, I don't often get to see if there is—or is not—a response. Like Sunday: I'm all top down smiling as I leave my residential...
  2. The 6G poll to end all polls

    Still not clear on the questions. I answered "Auto" because that's what the car has in it. "Premium" because that's what the car has on and about it. "Summer" because that's the tires it has under it. Never occurred to me that Premium meant a gasoline choice, nor that Summer meant when I...
  3. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Breezed past the two-thousand-mile mark without even noticing! (Car has been in our household since 26 March 2020; that's, uh, {very few} miles per month.) Looked at Ford Pass to verify mileage. Ford Pass is mute on the subject. In fact, Ford Pass no longer recognizes the car. Says it must be...
  4. How long do you plan on keeping your S550?

    It will let me know when it is time.
  5. Whats your/official definition of "spirited/thrashing" driving?

    You always have to balance your Need For Speed with your Drive For Elegance. We all know what it is, the Speed need, and recognize many of the irrational things it makes us do. Elegance is another matter entirely: Knowing that you've done the right thing to fit your overall and specific...
  6. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    With patience and dollars it apparently can be done: this corner a few blocks from here was de-service-station-ized about twenty-five years ago, and sat fenced and vacant until late last year. Now it's the site of a condo complex with a commercial corner. They missed their chance to make a...
  7. Switching to a convertable

    Looks as if it was well done. Could have been fun.
  8. Switching to a convertable

    My first convertible (twelve of 36 vehicles). Started with this 1953 MG TD Midget, done some other styles, but always come back. I can state unequivocally that when this Polaroid J66 picture was made in 1961, the top was up. Up in the rafters of the garage.
  9. Senior S550 Owners Like Black Wheels?

    During the middle/early or early/middle 1950s Ernie McAfee drove a 4.9-liter car that won plenty of races before he ran it into a tree at Pebble Beach, ending his life and the car's utility. Of course it was a Ferrari, and in those days Ferrari was its own marketing charm.
  10. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    If you do a decent installation of this stuff, it definitely wants to stay on there. Do I really want to?
  11. Senior S550 Owners Like Black Wheels?

    Or you could round your 2.3-liter engine down...
  12. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Dummied up the reflective orange vinyl stripes on the trunk lid. They are six inches wide separated by a one-and-a-half-inch reflective black stripe that shows bright white in from-your-direction light, with a bare stripe five-eighths-inch between the black and orange vinyl. Treatment looks...
  13. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    The one I carried in my bag while I had an S197 (I've forgotten which one) came from the Ford dealer. I wonder if that old one can be used on the newer easy-fill necks. I'd hate to try it and get it stuck in there.
  14. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Guess I missed the part where it tells what the advantage of a CarPlay2Air is. I do appreciate the value of Old CDs on small media: I spent some time winnowing my rips, and found the worthwhile and favorite tracks—2,272 of them—would fit neatly on a 14GB USB thumb drive. I do like the idea of...

    Yup. You might appreciate some of this.

    "Moreno Valley" — That's darn near hate language for some of us...
  17. Removing High Performance Ecoboost Rear Badge

    I didn't like the big chrome circle on the back of my 2006 Mustang, so I masked the rest of the car (and the center of the emblem) and rattle-canned it Satin (semi-gloss) Black. Still like it.
  18. Ford Performance Procal Tune

    Thank youse for your informations. I think I have a little better grasp of what I was wondering about. I reckon I'll wait until my car has a few more miles on it before doing the FP tune. At the rate I'm accumulating mileage, that could be a year or two. Or three. Fewer than 200 a month. Perhaps...
  19. Ford Performance Procal Tune

    I'm going to take a chance, hoping y'all knowledgeable folks who have contributed to this kind-of-old thread will be able to school me about the Ford Performance EcoBoost® PROCAL Tune. From what I've seen around the Forums, not everyone is pleased with the tune's improvement. Is there consensus...
  20. Watching movies

    We did a cross-country journey using a laptop to play DVDs. Plugged in the sound to the car system. Passenger could watch and listen, driver could listen in good fidelity. It was an OK experience, but for the most part we preferred to look at the scenery and converse. Seems to me one of my...
