John, I can only post pics from my Flickr acct (in order to downsize from my eye fone) and that requires the use of my laptop. The laptop is in Calif, so pics will have to wait a couple more days.
Driving impressions compared to my other three Stangs:
Recaros are absolutely more "friendly" to day to day driving compared to my 350 Recaros.
Shift gate is way too long.....needs a short shifter
First gear is almost a granny gear. 373's will do that. My Gurney is the same way.
Car is leap years ahead of both my early S197's in interior quality and overall sound deadening.
This car drives very smooth and docile if you prefer, then engage the TracKey and you have a totally different car.
TracKey takes some time to "engage"...... The previous owner told me the car has to be at full operating temp beforehand. He's right
With this color scheme (apparently) I get thumbs up time and time again. Was sitting in emissions line yesterday and had two people comment OUTLOUD, "I love your car!" I have some rare cars and I haven't experienced this to this degree before.
Opened the pkg of MMD tail light bezels (matte black) and have decided a no go..... The red lamps look right at home on the Race Red paint. Also, as I mentioned on another thread, was thinking of doing an old school gas cap mod.....that's out now too. This car looks way better in person than I'd previously thought from pics on the interweb.
Car is hard to drive "slow" for instance in a parking lot or a gas station entrance in first gear with TracKey engaged.....it wants to GO!! It lurches at super low speed. Hahaha
The previous owner drilled out the restrictor plates, using a pattern from an old set of Jeep stingers he had laying around. Without the luxury of knowing what the stock plates sounded like, my observation is that the car is not as loud as I'd envisioned. I've been told by friends with Boss cars, that if you remove them completely for day to day driving, it's too loud? I do t want that for now...... I have "loud" when I want it in the 350 in Sport Mode or the Stingray in Track Mode.
I probably missed something here, but for now I LOVE this car just as nature, err.....Ford, intended it....................... Stock
