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!


looks great Luis...very much like one in cali that I saw for sale

here's what I'm looking for, but with 03/04 cobra wheels

Luis, add "GT side scoops" to your mod list. Those week V6 half scoops aren't cutting it.
2V vs 3V

PM Phil and tell him I said to cut you a deal!

absolutely, and the hood scoop!

dont get that setup, it looks terrible, you can tell it's a fake.

The real thing is even more expensive though. I definitely want one on mine though

Minus the 03/04 Cobra wheels and 01+ GT wing, this is exactly what I'm visualizing for mine.

Got curious and started looking for 03-04 Mach 1's. Can't believe how well those things have held there value. If I had the money for a second stang that would be it. The Termi is to trendy if you ask me.


Check out this practically brand new Mach 1.

Looks like Tom281 is selling his Mach1

Congrats Luis! That was quick!

At least it's not a Prius!

So last Saturday I was watching Muscle Car on Spike. They had a tip on how to clean up your plastic headlights so I tried it today.

Original right headlight...



Mask to protect surrounding paint...



Use 1500 grit sandpaper and water to wet sand the oxidation off...



Wipe clean inspect...




Use Mothers plastic polish or toothpaste as a polishing compound...



Power buff using an air tool with a foam or better a buffing wheel (not shown) inspect...



Repeat on right side, before...



Here you can see the polished area on right vs sanded area on left...



Full polished...



View of both lights...



Not bad I only worked both lights for 30 minutes, I could of hit it with a second series of sanding. But the results are pretty good. The only thing I would change is using an electric buffer vs air.

You just showed the world your ignorance right there.

Tom's accepting trades, offer up your 06 since you love the SN95's so much.

Looks like new again!

Yeah, for stuff like that, electric is the way to go unless you have a 200 gal air tank.

Legendary Motorcar Company built a Super 'Cuda for SEMA and then decided to find out what it could do. The car is stuffed with engine and rubber: A twin-turbo Viper V10 with at least 1,000 horsepower, along with 345-series, 19-inch tires in back. The only place they could think of to test it properly was Chrysler's Chelsea, Michigan proving grounds. For good measure, the folks at LMC brought a Ferrari Enzo along as well.

Needless to say, in a straight line drag, the Super 'Cuda owns the Enzo, but the Enzo prevails in top speed.
