Alright we have a serious situation here. There is no Mustang representation at the Rockville Barnes and Noble Chill spot! We cannot let this situation go on and have the import crowd think we are outdated/don't love our cars/are ununified.
All who are down to have some fun and remind those "tuners" what real cars are meet at Rockville B&N @10pm on Friday.
One of the bigest things about ricers I hate is that they are like short guys, it is like they have something to prove to me when I am driving my Mustang down the Beltway. I had no less then 6 Honda's try to race me on my home tonight. I don't want to waist the gas or have them kill anyone because they over do it. What ever happend to the good old days of TA's and Camero's and a few Vette's? Even a 911 or a Boxster?
Price was fine. It sounds great, but not too loud. Just about what I was expecting. Tony did a good job, no rattles, etc. I'm really happy with it. Quiet when you want to be, wails as needed. Now I just need that x-pipe to go with it.
BTW Mass, I pay roughly $125/mo for my insurance. Clean record (well, no accidents at least ) and I have my home policy with them.
I am getting raped by Gieco. I spend over 300/mo for two cars (saturn v6 and my stang) My wife and I have clean records but #####.
Fish, I know what you mean. I got challenged by two 16 year old girls in a dodge Caravan on Randolf road
Same day coming home I got challenged by a TA but the wife and kids were in the car and the wife shot me a dirty look when the TA gunned his engine at me. My wife is not from this country and does not know or care about the fine art of drag racing. I have to learn her but is going to be a slow process--that is why she drives her own car and leaves the stang to me (she can't drive a stick anyway).
OK, I checked, $136/mo for full coverage on the 'stang. I went with $1000 deductable on collision though, $500 deductable comprehensive. Like I said, I've been with these guys since H.S., and I have my homeowners policy with them. I still thought this was expensive, but couldn't get a better deal. BTW, the convertible is less expensive to insure according to my agent.
I have 98 Exploder and a 95 GT and I only pay $104/mo for full with Geico. Maybe being in the Navy was not so bad after all... I a $250 deductable and covered too $750k on the Mustang and $500k on the Exploder. I knew I got a military discount, but wow.
Now the hearse has a million on it and that is only $148/month but that is a company car and we have 40 some cars (not all hearses') I think we are using Allstate still.
I was already to go with Dennis's setup when my neighbor with a very fast 5.0 and a lot of threads in Corral.net convinced me to go with the Vortech/Steeda set-up. Untill that time I was going to go with usual bolt-ons (gears, chip, intake, T/A & pullys etc) but he told me for a little extra money I could get more hp/$ with a blower and a good tune. So thats the way I am going to go. I still am going to get the gears (will probaby go to Horsepower by Herman) in abut two weeks (I just paid my kids tuition).
I am planning on doing the blower next spring/summer which will also give me time to see if I want to trade the car on a Mach 1!!!
BTW, I have a MAC CAI that has never been out of the box for sale if you know anybody interested!
Be aware of Herman, I have heard allot of bad things about him. Things like not getting what you paid for, and switching to cheaper parts and not telling you. It is 2nd hand info, but I have heard it from a few people. I was going to have him build my 1st engine, but after I heard that, I went some where else.
How much are you asking for the CAI??
The blower was the funnest mod I had. It would light the tires up at 40MPH!
so herman is not that great huh.... thats where i was goin to take mt car for my trany instal.... if not a good idea let me know this would be my 1st time goin there. any body know of another place that i can get my trany put in. hph was going to charge me 400 i think that was the quote
oh and for some gears installed i know a guy in laurel who will do your gears on the side for 200 if u have all the parts thats who did mine. hes a good guy he building a 7 sec chevy 2. bad ass
he also has a 9 sec street driven chevy 2 the guy knows what hes doin
sorry guys couldnt make it... the women was driving me up a wall. i had to stay or my life would be a living hell. i just have one question why is it that you can tell your girl friend a week in advance that you have some stuff to do but they cant get it through the head that means with out her. or she complety forgets. but any way sorry i couldnt make it and i will be sure to make it next time!!!!!
We did miss you tonite. Radarluv and Mass were there and lots of RICE (I am not including the NSX with the big ass wing though). However, two superchared (vorteched) stangs were representin as were a couple of other GTs.
