Click the image to open in full size.

so this is a picture of a friend of mine and his 2007 V6 Mustang. he's helped me with a number of things regarding my own Mustang, but a couple weeks ago he became a victim of a moron.

he was parked in a parking lot where he works and some person decided to attempt a U-Turn near his car, misjudged it, and plowed into the side of his vehicle. rather than be a good person, this individual decided to flee without leaving any info.. a nice little hit and run.

here's where it gets awesome. because who needs security cameras when you have mustang enthusiasts (joking, but in this case it makes sense)?

the hit-and-run perpetrator flees, not noticing that a person driving his brand new 2012 Mustang 5.0L V8 witnessed the entire event, and was pulling out of the parking lot across the street. the Mustang driver proceeded to chase the hit-and-run perpetrator, record a license plate, make and model, AND pull up along side them and get a detailed description of the driver and passenger.

1) This Mustang owner is awesome.
2) the perpetrator is a moron for trying to outrun a 5.0L Mustang in what I think (i can't remember what I was told) was a Honda Civic or something.
3) This Mustang owner is awesome.

the Mustang owner returned to my friend's car, and somehow got ahold of him and told him the entire story and info. Justice is now being served to the hit-and-run perpetrator.

i see a lot of stories about people on this forum getting their babies damaged, or worse, and they don't catch the jerks who commit the crimes. so i wanted to post a story similar that came out to a happy ending. and we have awesome people out there in the world, some of whom are in our Mustang community, watching our backs. so thanks to the Mustang community! may we remain united! that's all from me, hope you guys enjoyed the true story!

Very nice! Glad to hear he'll be taken care of. That would have really sucked if no one would have witnessed it!

Nuke, that's a bit extreme for punishment and not quite proportionate to the crime... Perhaps leave out the hot out of the description, but keep the rest.

Hot barb3d (apparently the correct spelling of b-a-r-b-e-d is blocked? wtf) poker. Like fish hook barbs, you can't back them out.

I'd do the same if I saw some POS fleeing a hit and run after being a crappy driver.

I don't think a Honda did that. Looks like a truck or suv. My wife had an old man back into her in the walmart parking lot. Old people do not turn their heads around when backing up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
