I never was into sports in high school and I never was interested in anything because i grew up on an army base and if you didnt play sports...what else was there to do. I didnt get my license till I was 18 and came to the states to finish high school. I bought a nissan. Ya bad idea. I got Hooked on going fast. A little nissan isn't really that fast. I put a CAI,Exhuast, lights, and body kit. I made the ultimate ricer. I hated it after while. lol
When i went to the desert to do convoys in support of OIF and OEF I had a sgt that was into performance of cars. He told me all about his V6 mustang he supercharged and he raced it at a drag strip. I got magazines and read and read all bout muscle cars and drag racing.
When I came home. I actually was going to look for F-150 Because I drive trucks in the military so why not have one to drie everyday. While at a Ford Dealership,I looked and looked at teh trucks, but something wasnt right. I looked at my ricer and thought maby it will be fast one day with some more work. As I was going in to do numbers for a truck, at the door next to my car was a Candy red GT. I asked to sit in it. I swear it spoke to me. Took me the one second to touch the shifter and i told him i wanted it.
Its been magical ever since. Ive done just bout everything u can do to that car except for a supercharger and cams. Its my red Baby.
At the track I run a 13.2 I have 305 Rear Wheel HP and 315 lbs of torque. I love going to the track as much as possible. Im not like most people That say they run such and such time but have no proof. I do race and i have a time slip in my car at all times.
The mustang has Underdrive Pulleys, CAI, FR Throttle body, BBK Headers,High Flow Cats, Pypes Mufflers, 3:73 gears, NItto 555 streets tires, Short shifter, g-trac bar, upper control arm, panhard bar, light weight radiator support, and aluminum drive shaft.
Most mustangs in fayetteville NC are stuck up and think they are the #*%#. So with that attitude i got picked up by a nicer group of people. Ya this might be a bad thing to say on a Ford site. I got picked up by camaros. They have been my friends for a while now and even though im the mustang that hangs with camaros Ive learned a lot about racing from them and ive taken those lessons to the track to beat other drivers.
After a while i did get a group of friends that drive msutangs and some of us have been suping up our stangs and battleing it out. Some of us do the car show thing and win trophies. Ive made peace between the camaros and Mustangs. The camaros got their jokes but us mustangs dish it right back...behind their back of course lol. We are mustangs not camaros. We dont wear bowties and act professional. We tear things up and start stuff. We are loud and proud to show off the muscle under our hoods.
IF your a car person, the car chooses the driver. My mustang spoke to me when i bought it. My car is like me in every way. Im always the center of attention (cops), its loud, the scratches and little ding it has on the door are like me because im not perfrect and neither is the pony. Im the fastest runner at work...ok like on base almost, and at work i have the fastest car.
Driving the mustang is everything to me. WHen im down it makes me feel better to cruise downtown, it makes me happy when i see ricers trying to pull out everything they got to even try and come close to what my 281 has. When i look at the mustang its everything that is american.
