    My main baby and the love of my life :p... 2004 Ford Mustang 3.9L V6 Coupe

    I have been her one and only owner; been through alot with this thing when many people would have just gotten rid of the thing. Its been in tech. 3 accidents, one being a t-bone worth about 15K worth of damage to her, #2 being stolen, rear blown out, stripped and left for dead at a wrecking yard in West VA which in turn took me about 7,000 (5500 outta my own pocket) to get it back to good "stock" condition and #3 about 1500$ worth of damage from a few deer broad siding it.

    Throughout the years this car has gone through so many looks it isnt even funny, now im on the track of completely finishing her so i can move onto another major project which would be my tacoma ;) and do minor things to her from there on out.

    She is not everyone's cup of tea and I realize that (so please no immature comments, ive heard them all for the last seven years or so), I dont expect everyone to like her but I built her to do one thing, to place at shows big or small and that is what she has done year in and year out.

I should know my first car was an 83' 5.0 Mustang V8 4 barrel carburator, headers,5 speed, post-traction. Ohhhh the memories in that car ;). Needles to say I have a special place in my little oh heart for mustangs :D.
