PostSubject: New Member from North East PA   Fri Jun 11, 2010 10:26 am

Hi all,

I'd like to take a minute to introduce myself on this awesome forum, as part of my companies worldwide expansion I became a UK to US transplant, I had owned Ford's pretty much all of my driving life, 81 Fiesta (UK), 05 Focus (UK), 05 Explorer (US) and as soon as I saw the new Mustang I knew I wanted one, that dream finally came true in 07 when I purchased a brand new 07 Windveil Blue GT.

Buying it was a really experience... there was this dick of a sales guy at the dealership, I wasn't dealing with him but he was giving my salesguy a hard time about letting me take it for a test drive saying I was too young (I was 25 at the time) he didn't expect me to buy it and got a bit of shock when I came back and "I'll take it" :)

Since owning the car I've done a few bolt on modifications to it, nothing major as I am still paying off the car, once the loan on it is gone I hope to put some more time into it.

Mods include:

Appearance:

3d Carbon Center Fog Grille
Tri-Bar Pony Grille Emblem
3d Carbon Boy Racer Wing
Blue Interior Lighting
Matte Black SuperStripe
Rear Quarter Louvres
Shorty Antenna
Brenspeed Dynamite Sticks
Custom Antenna Cover

Power:

Aggressive Axel Back Borla Stingers
C&L Racer CAI
Bamachips SCT X3 - 93 Race tune
Steeda STB
K&N Oil Filter

Grand plans are to finish the 3d Carbon Boy Racer Body Kit, upgrade the engine to a Brenspeed B302 and add a supercharger but obviously money needs to be raised to fund that plan.

This is what I would like the final product to look like:

That was done on ponybuilder.com in case anyone wants to play around.

Here's how it was the day I bought it:

Here's how it is currently:

Some people love the spoiler, some people hate the spoiler, personally I love it although I do freely admit that without the rest of the body kit it is a little out of place :)

Now the reason the grand plan hasn't really gone to plan in the three years I've owned the car is because I had to go through the green card application process, buy and house and October will be getting married, I am hopefully that I can continue to do minor upgrades to the car and then in a few years get to work on the big stuff.

I'm very interested in finder out about shows that are local to me, Wilkes-Barre / Scranton area, as well as seeing what other local owners are on here.

Thanks!
Andrew.

I am a member over on Real Performance Mustangs and saw a post from you on there, figured I would join to see if you had the local club information I was looking for.

Sorry never heard of "Real Performance Mustangs". I'm not on there I'm assuming someone else from here is. Anyway, what local club are you looking for? We're mainly all over NJ and Staten Island. How far are you from NJ?

Yes sorry Lime GT that was the members name... sorry for any confusion :)

I'm in North Eastern PA around the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton area, NJ is about an hour to an hour and a half away from me depending on the final destination so I was looking for something a little more local, there are numerous car shows around here throughout the year but they all seem to be setup through word of mouth and I was hoping to find an easier way to gain advanced warning of them.

Here is a more artsy photo of the car:

I had an engagement photo shoot a few months back with the wedding photographer, he had never done any work with a car so was up for some fun, the wife to be and me are standing in the background, I really like this shot because the car for once actually looks clean :)

Welcome! Nice ride there mate...
Youre right, without the rest of the kit, the wing is a bit "ricey", but its still a STANG, and we LOVE us those STANGS...

Yeah just a tad ricey :) I got the painted wing dirt cheap and I love the functionality it offers of completely obstructing the rear view mirror :)
