i must be an old man here
 
I have an excellent 2007 GT. And yes I have the typical mods CAI, and a tuner. Im not really interested in going all out with my car....it looks good, sounds great as i get compliments on it all the time. So i have no desire the put a SC on it and run mad crazy horsepower. I dont know maybe im weird.

What do you mean by old?, it's your car you get to do what you want to, isn't living in a free country great, you get to do what you want, say what you want and nobody gives a S#$t, well, almost nobody. Me, I couldn't wait to load on the blower etc. etc. and there's no end in sight.

I feel same way. I have an 07, manual with CAI, GT-500 Throttlebody, Steeda CMRC, and underdrives it put down 300RWHP, since then added ARH long tubes and what difference up top. The car spins tires now, why would I spend thousands more for an SC to blow them off the rims. I have a high 12 second and it pretty consistent and fast enough to take out a lot of other cars if need arises.

My '07 GT's only performance mods are CAI & tune and wider, stickier tires. I have a lot of other "joys" in my life that also get my attention (and wallet). My GT isn't my DD so everytime I get behind the wheel it's like the first time. Yeah, going FI would be nice but not near the top of my priority list. A.K.A. you're not alone. 58 here...

I love these 'too old' threads! Just because we get older doesn't mean we cant have fun with our toys! Make it what you want, keep it stock, slightly modded, whatever you desire. If you've thought about drag racing at a track but have not done so yet...do it! Show them young fellers what fer.
One thing I love about these cars is they're easy to modify to be what you want, and plenty of advice and parts online. My first Mustang was "my wife's" car, a tame V6...for awhile. Then mods started, and kept on. Now that car is a v8 beast, and we drive another V6, "slightly modded" (with a turbo). I thoroughly enjoy both cars, and love driving both of them.
Don't be ashamed to be older and drive a Mustang!

You guys are so right. It just seems like everybody is throwing a superchargef at their mustang these days. Used to be guys would build a car part by part, and put their blood sweat,and tears into a car. Im not so sure the passion is the same. No offense is implied

If lack of mods is a sign of being an old coot, then I'm most certainly guilty as charged.

Bought my '06 GT, five speed Labor Day of 2006. It now has 56,000 miles and is still stone stock.

I do understand DC's comment about building a car piece by piece. In my younger years I built three cars from a frame on saw horses UP. I modified numerous other cars sort of one piece at a time.

It is indeed a different world today when it comes to twisting those real wheels harder.

BTW, I'll turn 65 in May.

I know where you're coming from, and no offense taken, but I don't think things have changed. It takes a lot of time, and lots and lots and lots of money to build one of these cars. I basically gave up all of my "vices", including having a beer at home once in a while, to buy my supercharger. If that's not passion, I don't know what is.

I think the big difference is, that with today's technology, some mods just don't work without others. Sure, I've modded lots of cars, but always dreamed of that one "BIG" mod that was worth 100+ hp. Now I've done it.

Well, Looks like I might be second. BD 12/02/1945, I'm 68. My DD is a Screaming Yellow 2006 Mustang GT 'vert, 5 speed. Only car I ever factory ordered. Also, best car I've ever owned. 120K fun miles. Been coast to coast in her as well as to Canada. I also stil own a 1985 Mustang GT HB I bought new off the lot. Restored last year. Also a 5 speed. I might be old, but I still love me some Mustangs.

YEs you are old.

You just don't feel the need.

The NEED for SPEED.


go drive or even passenger in someone's 500whp+ car and you'll either realize yeah I don't need this, or THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN MISSING!
