Modding plans put to a screeching halt.

Well, I had good intentions for my car lol. Only problem is, I decided to get engaged !! Wedding is in August, so aside from my SHR quarter window louvres, I don't think I will be able to afford much with it. Oh well, having a wife and house will be worth it

Congratulations!!!! You'll always have time for mods later on. The truth is the GT/CS is a great car just the way Ford made it.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Congrats! Will the GT/CS be the "post-reception escape vehicle"?

I think that we have been married for 47 years. After I got my HCS finished she said that since you spent so much money restoring it, I want some new kitchen cabinets. So guess what I had to do. Well any way I hope that you have many happy years of marriage. May God bless.
