Took delivery of the car on the
actual 45th anniversary of Mustang's original introduction. No one at the stealership
knew the significance of the date. The car was "built" on 2008-04-19,
very close to the 40th anniversary of the introduction of the original GT/CS models.
couldn't have been more than thirteen months ago (2009-04-17), but I found time
and occasion to:
Ford Racing Performance Parts "Bullitt" Cooler Air Intake, including
the FRPP special tune. Greater output for "off-road" use is
through BamaChips Torque, Performance, and Race tunes, via SCT X3
Swap in a pair of the FRPP M-5230-A Shelby GT-style mufflers
the Shelby billet aluminum, four-nuts-per-side strut tower brace
a "KR" (Shelby King of the Road) rear
spoiler/wing for the GT-style pedestal-mount item
Car currently wears the Saleen
Parnelli Jones Editon "Minilite-inspired"
19x9/10 wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 275-35 tires
list of changes and additions is on Page 3M
its best configuration, this convertible did a 9.165-second eighth-mile pass at
QualComm's strip, MPH 81.23 on the "Fanblades" and RE-01R Bridgestones
(2010-07-30). Yes, it's quicker than the coupe. So far.
After all that, I sold it to CarMax on 2012-10-22,
9,719.1 miles on the odometer.
