 More Mustang information

Comments: 0 (Read/Post)
Here's an email someone sent in about the Mustang mentioned in the 10/27 update and the 10/19 update.


Regarding the blacked-out Mustang in the 10/27 update, you missed a subtle but very offensive point. Despite the abundance of SVT badges the car is not and will never be a Cobra. Why?
1) Those black wheels are base GT / optional V6 16"x7" models.
2) The hood cowl is from a GT or V6 not a Cobra. The Cobra cowl is contoured differently and has different "nostrils".
3) Nobody replaces the Cobra front bumper with anything. It is probably the best bumper available for any SN95 Mustang.
4) If the rear bumper doesn't read "COBRA" (can't tell from the picture) then that's another tip off.
5) I couldn't tell if the car had factory fog lights in the silly looking bumper. If it doesn't it is very likely a V6 model unless they were just left out.

So, this car is either a GT or V6. I'm betting V6 all the way as most riced out Mustangs are generally V6's (why buy the GT when you can "modify" a V6 and make it as "good" as a GT). I'd also wager that the dual exhaust is fake. Whatever the case, this car is faker than a Civic Type-R DX VTEC SiR with an automatic transmission.

Here are some funny products I found in the Summit Racing catalog for Fall 2000.

Anyone want some "dress shoes" for their ride? For only $140-$190 you too can get a tire with a couple of stripes. The first line of the description says it all.

This one is my absolute favorite. "Fighter jet performance for your ride". So if you're ever driving and hear a REALLY loud noise near by it was probably just another ricer breaking the sound barrier.

I'm sure the question you'll be asking yourself after seeing this picture is "Should I get the Terminator or the Terminator II?"

Another product marketed at the "I just bolted this thing on" crowd.

 300mph?

I want to know what the chain of events was that convinced this guy putting a sticker of a road sign on his car would look good. I guess 55mph just wouldn't look as cool as 300mph. But why stop at 300mph? Since you're already exaggerating I say put "Speed Limit 670616629mph".

This car is the official champion of most URL's on a car. Three is the number to beat.
