Installed a GT350 steering wheel today. Feels much better in the heat then the leather one did.

Shelby Splash Screen

I finally got the retrofitted OEM Nav to show the Shelby Startup screen. Sweet.

Put a coat of wax on my black GT. Looks fantastic! Supposed to rain now. Stays in the garage.

I had the windshield replaced in my '13 GT Wednesday due to a nice chip/crack from a rock on the interstate. I'm glad the glass shop used a genuine Ford windshield.

I hear that. Don't want some aftermarket hope it fits part.

Let me write that down...

Yesterday was my first check engine light, 20 months after buying it. Cobb AP was hooked up, so I just had to push a couple of buttons to get the code for "air leak between throttle body and intake valve." Popped the hood and the hose clamp on the throttle body was loose. I had taken that off Monday to replace the PCV baffle plate, so it was totally my fault. Easy fix though.

Wow, did you know that they were cracked?
Probably by the sounds, right?

SYNC

I updated SYNC, in my 13 GT. It still had the version it came with from the dealer, last updated 2012! I haven't had a chance to play with it, hopefully there have been some improvements, in the past six years...

Was that difficult and what did you have to do?

I heard some "clunks" then confirmed when I changed the oil a few weeks ago.

Went to a cruise night last night.

Overheard from an '18 GT owner:
'My car has 11" and 12" (wide) wheels'
His car had the stock PP wheels.
'The line lock doesn't work until the car has 4,000 miles on it'
I stopped listening.

It wasn't very hard, maybe a little tedious... you have to login to Owner.Ford.Com, download the update to a usb drive and then install via the USB port in the center console. Here is a link to the instructions, provided by Ford:

Back in '88 when I was shopping around for a new car. I was at my local Ford dealership and I asked the salesman if the new Mustang came with V8's. He replied no only V6's they're too small for V8's....

Yup. That'll do it.
Glad you got it fixed.

I actually had house stuff to do yesterday anyways. Looks like rain almost the rest of the week, so I had to get the front lawn done. One hour and a half later,............ .

What’s up guys... been a while. I actually dusted Marilyn today in the hopes of driving her and taking some photos. Been too busy at work and kids, plus spending wayyyy too much time with Wruby. I knew this would happen.

Current mileage on Marilyn this year = ~ 200.

call me Tony. Hehe
