What I did to my Mustang today was I sold it! I have severe arthritis in my back and I have tried for 4 years to deal with the back pain caused by the seat, with no luck. I hated to do it and will miss it but I just can't drive it anymore. ☹
Tough getting old, isn't it?

All my life I was convinced in my youth that a sports car was not a sports car unless it had 8 cylinders with 300+ horsepower, a stick shift. When I reached 65+ clutch pedals became harder on the knees, memory lapses to remember to put in neutral/set the hand brake became a consideration, as well as squeezing into a low, 2-door car in a narrow garage. Well.......perceptions of younger years give way to age-relevant wisdom eventually. Decided to give up my ZX-10R at 65 years old. I miss it, and miss those to-the-limits track days, but I have never once regretted admitting it was time to let it go. I hope you too find peace with your decision to sell the Mustang.

As a friend recently told me, getting old isn't for sissies. Hang in there John.

71 years young, still driving a manual as I have all my driving life. Knees and memory are fine. Automatics are for pussies.

Not in your guys age range but at 47 Ive put my body through hell. Have a 6 speed mustang gt for good days and an automatic 66 cuda for bad days! Either way I plan to ride till the wheels fall off.

My old man has a 68 Cuda and 69 Charger, if all goes to plan one day they’ll be mine. What those cars will mean to me is exactly why I’m planning to keep my mustang to one day give it to my kids.

Awesome! What is the HP/TRQ gains on the cobra jet? Looking to maximize a N/A build and curious how much one would push to the wheels with intake/exhaust/headers/cobra jet.

Spent some time installing a slew of new parts yesterday. New Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs, Maximum Motor Sport Caster/Camber plates while I had the struts disassembled, Rokblokz splash guards. Ran out of time to install the Ford Performance hood struts, I’ll prob get to that on Sunday.

All in time for a fresh coating of 5” of snow to fall so I couldn’t take it out to admire my handiwork. 🤦🏻‍♂️😂

Was a fun project!

New tires and alignment today! Continental DWS 06 Plus. I'm loving them so far and not misssing the stock POS Pzero Neros for a second. I can't believe I put up with them until today but I was just being a cheap bastard........

The car is so smooth now and actually has some grip for once. We still have lots of snow but the roads were clean and dry so I figured I'd get them on since I will be getting her out more now.

Also I have to say I have really missed this car while it was stored so it was a blast to help seat the new rubber today. :)
