I didn't do anything to my Mustang today, but I decided that confession would be cleansing.

I love this forum and seeing all of the great things that Mustang owners do with our cars to make them the way we like them. I pick up ideas here and there of things that I end up doing. That having been said:

I regularly us 87 octane gas;
I only use one bucket (with a grit guard) when I wash my car in the warm months;
I sometimes run my Mustang through a soft-cloth car wash with the "chassis bath" in the cold months to get the salt off of the chassis;
I like the look of my factory 20" wheels, despite their unnecessary weight;
I do not have ceramic on my finish, although I do use Turtle Wax's Ceramic Spray Coating several times a year and I think that my paint looks good;
I drive my Mustang as my daily driver every day, regardless of the weather;
I have black wheels for my winter tires, but now wish that I had gotten some with a silver finish.

I trust that some of you may decide that I am a barbarian for the way that I treat my Mustang, but I love driving Mustang GTs as much as any of us, and I get that joy every day, year 'round.

Thanks.
You're my hero. I love accountability, self deprecation, honesty, and humor. You've also influenced me to reconsider black winter wheels. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Please start a new thread; Mustang Confessions...

Bless me, Forum, for I have sinned.

You're right, the 20s are awesome looking. I have them on my 18. Minute I laid my eyes on the car and ever since... Clean, classy.

I'm okay being in the minority here, but the 20"s look ridiculous. The tires are absolute rubber bands, and they look like you took them off an Escalade or something. 19"s max is the way to go, especially with a lowered ride height.

They don't just look great... they feel good too.
