I think I still have my stock one laying around somewhere....

Just in case

I have not had a squeak out of mine... haven't had to grease it either. The roads are crappy here.

We were all there last month.

They'll be a Cafe on the 28th.

I thought you mentioned Straw Hat makes a decent pie? Almost like Me & Ed's?

That's how our Straw Hat is up here... Pretty close, although lately they haven't been as good, so we have been eating Mountain Mike's Pizza... I need to try Straw Hat again to see if it was a fluke thing or not!

Yeah, definitely tame and comfy but now I'm not riding tame and still a little comfy

Way to kill his hopes Brian Don't tell him what he needs to know; tell him what he wants to hear

Leo - I think its the swaybars

Be careful Jed, you don't want anyone sneaking you a ruffi (sp?)

I had to update the POTR crew on my new Mustang; today I picked up a 2000 GT

The basic details: Its a 5-speed GT with 74,000 miles. Grey interior with cloth seats (I actually like cloth seats more than the leather for these SN95's) and the Mach 460 sound system - cassette and CD player included

The fun stuff: 18x9 FR500's all the way around, JLT cold air intake, H&R springs and full Bassani exhaust (O/R X and catback)

Leo's already making a mod list

I'm really happy with it! Car rides very smooth and the shifter is world's better than the remote POS - that was my only gripe with the S197's. Funny enough, Lucille squeaks and rattles more than the new Pony It feels slightly slower than a stock S197 but its still torque and I cannot get over the exhaust

There. Cats out of the bag!

Yeah, you definitely need to hear it. I finally have the rumble in the exhaust that I've been looking for I wish S197's could sound like this.
