Default someone copying your mustang...

How would u guys feel if you lived in a small town. Your kinda proud of your mustang. Try and make it look different. And someone literally copies you. At first it was hey another white Mustang. Then about 2 months everything copied from black rims, the spoiler, trunk, bumper, mach 1 lip, painted hood. Mind its a v6 that copied.

It should at least tell you that your mods are tastefully done

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

The dick side of me would say that you copied someone else somewhere since what you have done is not innovative. But the nicer side of me would say that I would feel good about my car since someone had an appreciation in what I did to mine. Almost like a big brother to a little brother idea. Nice ride btw

The bottom line is both cars have parts u can buy of the shelf, so u cantget upset when someone else has the same stuff cause off the shelf parts cant make a unique car

I'd be annoyed. My sister has complained about how almost every white mustang around here has copied the rear of mine.

Believe it or not I saw an almost identical fastback to mine over in Daytona a while back. You know what I did? I thought, "Damn. That's a good looking car."

I've got too much going on to get my panties in a knot about what somebody else does to their cars.

Let it go, man. Just let it go.

If you want your car to be unique you have to do something that is unique and hard to copy.
Something that only you have.
Like the hood on my gt I promise nobody has a hood like that one because when I painted it I taped out the design my self . And while not every one will like it , it doesn't matter to me because I did it my self and there is none else where exactly like it.

If someone bites your style, just take it as a compliment. Besides, I often see so many hideous looking Mustangs with ricer crap and PepBoys fake stick-on vents sometimes make me wish somebody would copy me.

While I like having a unique car, I don't care if people copy it. Take my old thunderbird SC. It was one of a kind thanks to the paint choice that I used. Hell, even after I sold it, I had people telling me that they spotted it. Had someone copied it, awesome, he has good taste.

Now the T-bird is a rare enough car on it's own that few people mod it, with a mustang, I am reasonably sure that you have copied someone else because everything has been done in the past. I outfitted my 97 with crystal white paint, chrome 03/04 cobra wheels, smoked headlights, and black bumper inserts. It's been done several times before.

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

You should totally move your rear spoiler back a little. Just another mod to make it different.

Exactly! I would feel honored that somebody is taking time out of their lives and money out of their pockets to make their car look like mine.

Someone in town pretty much copied my car except he has a convertible.. My friends always tell me they saw me drivin and I have to tell them it wasn't me lol. Only real difference is the kid has the front hood on the raised part painted black.

Oh and nearly everyone copied my idea of all black bullitts. I was one of the very first on here to paint mine, if not the very 1st...
