Default You learn something new every day.....

After owning my 2002 Mustang GT for a little over 3 years now, I just noticed something about it the other day. Namely, that one of my wheels is a different color than the other 3. They are bullet style wheels, and one of them is a darker silvery silver, while the other 3 are a lighter color, more of a whitish silver. D'oh!!!! Well, at least they're still round!!

Yeah it took me almost 6 months to figure out I had a magnaflow catback. I had been under the car many times and never saw any branding on anything, then one day detailing the car I noticed the little Magnaflow logo painted on the end of the exhaust tips. Its all in the details

speaking of exhaust tips, I recently made a discovery in that category also. I was washing my car and thought I would wipe off my black exhaust tips, and what do you know - they're not really black at all. They are actually chrome and the black just wiped right off, now they look pretty shiny.

I went poking around the engine today and looked under the intake manifold hoping to find a great big pi intake.....nope, just a craptastic stock npi intake. So there's $1000 I still have to spend.
