Default New member from Southern IL (and new to Fords)

Just wanted to stop in and say hello. I'm 28 and in southern IL and had everything from Camaro's to Chevelle's to the last couple of vehicles I had were Dodge Dakota's. I had a lowered on 20's Dakota with a ton of money spent on it and last fall had to have back surgery, and am still having problems from it so I finally decided I needed to get a car instead. So it will be two weeks ago Friday that I traded in the Dakota for a new 2008 Mustang GT 5 speed. This is my first Ford ever, but I've always loved Mustangs and had quite a few friends with them and have a ton of good times in Mustangs. When they brought out the new body style I really fell in love, so here it is now and I have one! So far I'm really pleased with it but the mod bug has already hit me and I've got a throttle body and SCT Tuner ordered from Brenspeed for it. I hope to have a supercharger on it by this fall, but until then it will be little mods at a time. The tuner and throttle body looked like a good way to start and I hope to upgrade the exhaust soon. But enough rambling, hello everyone and I hope you all can teach me a few things about this great car!
