CS available through Ford dealers - kinda last gasp “23” update/catalogue issue to stretch the life out of S550.
Don’t like the non functional side scoops.

No pictures today, it wasn't the place for that. Took the old man for a drive in the Mustang today. Nowhere special, just the loooong way to the supermarket.

He was recently diagnosed with cancer, which has sort of scared us all and is making me much more conscious of being present. Apparently, they got it all and got it early, but I'm hopeful this is as far as it will go. For someone who never seems to get sick, seeing him look so ill has been quite distressing.

I'm not sure he liked a 2nd and 3rd gear pull to the redline, but I certainly enjoyed showing him why I love this car so much.

Would have loved to take the beast out today but other things took over…..still thinking about changing my auto for a manual…..does anyone know anyone who could do this in SA?

I would think be cheaper and easier to sell the auto and just go buy a manual tbh . Its what id do if i was in that position , i love my auto especially in heavy traffic , if i lived rural i'd consider a manual though .

I love my stock manual but maybe swapping it over from an auto you could get the better gearbox and a decent clutch. I reckon worthwhile looking at, after all while what Brisvegas says makes sense, you know your car and would probably torch $10K swapping over, between buggering around and stamp duty working on the car you know in the colour you like has its attractions. If I killed the gearbox in mine I would be looking at aftermarket options for sure.

Yeah that’s was my think especially with 2 boys sitting in the back…but I love the whole thought of being in control whereas the auto just isn’t consistent enough

Haven’t done anything for a couple of weeks!😩😩😩. What with family commitments and o/s visitors staying with us I haven’t had time to do a wash but with good weather and daily driving, all the cars are dirty. Can’t go on like this. My blood pressure is rising 😂😂😂. I need to wash them to relieve the stress.

well I managed to get (fake) cf tail light surrounds to match the (fake) cf decklid and that is all on, quite happy, but then got a serious case of sequential turning signal envy when I say a fellow in a pre-18 model with sequential rear indicators when mine only have the outside light blinking.

A quick internet search and $200 later, I have a replacement connector coming which will make mine sequential as well, I honestly think my wife would be happier if porn showed up in our internet history rather than "mystangmods" or "subject9".
