  • dadnpony: Subject: Night Before Christmas for the Mustang enthusiast !

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the town
    Not a Mustang was growling, not even a Roush.
    The Stangs were all parked in our garages with care,
    In hopes the new show season will soon be here.
    The Oil was changed to protect the heads,
    I sure hope the battery, doesn’t go dead;
    and mamma was complaining, I was taking a nap !
    Was just getting tired of taking her Crap.
    When out from the street came such a roar,
    I sprang from the couch and went to the door.
    When, what did my wondering eyes look and see.
    ,but the spirit of ”Carroll Shelby” in a 500 GT
    That little old driver , changing gears so quick;
    I Knew in a moment it was a short throw stick.
    More rapid then Hemi’s his coursers they came,
    and he whistled, and shouted and called them by name;
    “ Now Steeda, Jack Roush and Steve Saleen
    Let’s keep that “Bullet” coming Mr. McQueen !
    A Mach 1 and a Boss were burning up tread;
    both had their tach’s , pegged into the red !
    Pistons were stroking and tires were smoking,
    I was laughing so hard, I was almost choking.
    Ran out to my driveway to give them a shout;
    Please give me a second to pull my one out !
    ,but all I could hear as they drove out of sight,
    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good night.

  • mustangfan: Well tonight i bid farewell for my 2011 F150 5.0 for a 2013 F250 6.2L v8. Needed more towing capabilities with towing 30ft camper f150 just wasn't enough truck for the job. Got a smoking deal with trade in and it now sits in my driveway. Atleast now i can tow my 30ft camper with ease and comfort of knowing my F250 will handle it with no problems. Loved my F150 and will miss it. Just hope this F250 fairs as well as my F150 did.

  • mustangfan: My mini review of the 2013 Mustang GT. Pros are great acceleration, good braking, plenty of power, shifts like a champ, great gas mileage and handles great but i have to give credit to those goodyears on it that are brand new. Cons are seats could be better, headrest are a joke and a pain in the arse and cup holders are not in the great spot especially if you have a standard. Overall this mustang is light years ahead of the 90's and early 2000's i had prior. Its a keeper and can't wait till i get enough money to supercharge it.

They were okay for 3-4 minutes while we talked about their cars... but when the conversation came to what I had entered into the show, I told them I missed the entry deadline because of health issues... you'd have thought I was infected with the Bubonic Plague...

Plus cheaper payments then the 08 gt. Thinking about making 4.5hr trip to test drive it and bring it home. What do u guys think? Payments will be below $300 a month cause i wont drive for anything over $300 per month. Dealer said no problem.
