Are there any differences on that one compared to the one used on the V6?
Yes, the tr-bar is colored. Borders may be different, size may be different, but the important part is the red white and blue tri-bar.

The bars are colored red, white and blue on every tri-bar Mustang emblem made.

In response to a picture of the colored tri-bar on the Ecoboost Pony package panel, you posted:
That's the V6 emblem. The Ecoboost is just the running horse.
I said no, the Ecoboost Pony package has colored tri bars. You responded:
The bars are colored red, white and blue on every tri-bar Mustang emblem made.
Sigh. Not the one YOU referred to.

See? NO colors anywhere on the V6 tri-bar panel emblem. Three bars, all chrome, just like the horsey. You got it wrong when you posted the Pony Package panel emblem was identical to the V6 panel emblem. Move on. 🙄

^^^ LoL, Ok grumpy I see. I've seen some V6 Mustangs with the colored tribars, but maybe they painted them or changed the emblem. Also, don't the S197 Mustang V6 have the colored tribars?

Installed my blank Red Textured Raceseng Ashiko and R-Lock in the parking lot on lunch.

Super surprised how heavy it actually is. Feels good.

I read through the other post and no one confirmed the correct part number. Do you happen to remember?
Too long ago, I believe I just measured the filter and bought it by size.

Packed up for another road trip…drove 500 miles today to Gettysburg PA for a couple days 😎
Nice. We were there last August for a few nights. Unfortunately a lot of places were closed. Great tour of the battlefields though which was worth the trip. Check out the Gettysburg Museum. They have Maj Dick Winters display.

people will think you have an Ecoboost!! Fancy!
Ikr lol, I should put a GT500 spoiler on and really confuse people lol.


I REALLY want a Pony Package trunk emblem for my GT. Best looking emblem by far. Can't find an emblem anywhere and even if I wanted to spend $5xx for the whole panel, I would yank it off and put it on my existing smooth panel. Someday, a part number for the emblem will leak or I'll come across a damaged panel with untouched emblem.
I've thought about yanking it off but I just can't justify it. Doing that would mean I literally spent $600 for one emblem, I'll live with the accent line for now lol. That emblem on a smooth panel would be awesome though. I'll probably end up doing it one day, after I feel like I got my money's worth out of the panel.

I had to look him up. That's the Band of Brothers guy. Interesting bio. Thanks for the history lesson nudge.

Band of brothers was an awesome series. I recently finished reading Dick Winters book….Hang Tough. These were the greatest generation!

Installed the Craig's license plate bracket. It's a quality product. Thanks @Bobn57, @tomservo92, @Mach VII for your inputs. Turns out it's the same kit for all the GT, Mach and EcoBoost cars, even though they ask you to choose. The GT350 mounting bracket is different however.

Damn Jersey. Ran no front on my '03 Cobra for 11 years and got pulled only once.

It's definitely "the principle of it" thing with me. It's bad enough that any of the emblems probably cost Ford $10 to make. But even if $600 isn't much money, my brain says no to paying 60 time more. Would be the same for a stick of gum that cost 3 cents to make. Wouldn't pay $1.80 for it on principle no matter how much exercise my jaw muscles needed.

The main problem is the unavailability of just the emblem. The entire Pony panel price is also gouging compared to a GT panel but only ~2x. Problem with that the rest of the panel would be a downgrade from what I have. Minor from new appearance (slightly prefer my smooth) and maybe major down the road because many say the 2018+ panels scratch even easier than the pre '18s.

I've contacted custom badge makers but none were interested between copywrites, getting curvature and measurements right. Hell, I'd pay them more than the cost of a $600 panel from Ford because at least that would be at most a 2x markup for a custom part. [/rant]

I'm in Bergen County. Was driving w FL plates on my truck and Stangs for a while. Would often get asked were my plate was by cops who would approach from the front at intersections until they saw it was FL on the rear and then left me alone. I think it's a Bergen County thing. But I don't even want a second look.
