IT'S BIG, IT'S BLACK AND IT'S V8
Previous | 123 | Next

OK, so i tried to post a nice long thread about my new car, but it kept saying it's been posted as sp@m :evil::evil::evil::evil::evil::evil:

So, to make life easier, here is a pick of my new beast.


It's a '05 Ford Mustang 350 bhp with Roush add ons direct from the factory. For the moment it has a Roush exhaust but I have a straight pipe from BBK that was given with it. IMO the pipe I have is good enough ;).

The engine bay really needs a clean, but what a lump. It makes such a GREAT noise that I don't want to touch it. Also, I'm not sure how to touch it as I have never cleaned an engine bay (any tips???).

For such a big car, I thought there would be more space. The front is fine, however, when traveling with my two monsters (sorry, kids) they found it quite tight in the back. Also, as they have no windows, they started to feel sick after a while so I put them in the Picasso with my wife :D and then had some fun.

So, as you can imagine, I'm quite happy at the moment. This ain't a car I would have bought with my own money but what a present. I don't think I'll keep it for long as it won't be used that often and with the snow arriving tomorrow, not for a while (in the wet it can be a really b1tch. At the slightist touch and it goes sideways :shock: ). For the bonnet ties, I liked them in the beginning, but I think they look sh1te now. Also, I can imagine that after a while they will mark the paint.

So there you go. I'm now the proud owner of this beast. The plates are only temporary as tomorrow I'm going to the Prefecture (town hall) to get my paper sorted out for the little sum of 1600€ :shock: (but for the moment, 1600€ ain't alot for a beast like that). Here's to many a sunny day 8)8)8)

EDIT: Some people are having problems with the photos so here are some others

I don't know. I think we're still on CP (I prefer as anything Q makes me laugh - My Picasso has BQ at the end as in Beau Q). And yes, It comes from Italy from my wifes Grandad 8)8)8)

The Evo forum really is a shadow of its former self. I remember when the internet was for the elite and now they seem to let any spastic on.

I still don't understand how a 87 year old could spec a car like that. But good on him ;).
