Personally I'm going to hang onto my current Mustang for a while. I think it looks better and really I think I might be done with the modern American muscle thing. I might hold out and see what Dodge does with the Cuda, if it ever happens. They claim it's going to be small compared to the Challenger. But I really feel I'm ready to "step up" to something else like a used Porsche or something along those lines. But never a BMW, I'd rather burn in hell then become a part of the "douche crowd".

and Rodas were apparently out for a quick spin around 3 PM in Rodas' bright red 2005 Porsche Carerra GT when the single-car accident occurred.
My feelings go out to his family and friends. He will be missed and remembered by many.

recognition with their car designs, much like BMW, Porsche, etc. The Focus, Fusion, and now the Mustang all have that same look. Personally I don’t understand this design strategy because if a customer doesn't like the look then they are basically lost for the entire line of vehicles from that manufacture. Also apparently the look that Ford has chosen is one that everyone associates with Aston Martin who have had their design since 2004, so it’s not even unique or original.

This is not awesome....
I REALLY hope the bottom one isn't the new 2015 Mustang design. My 07' GT is literally a few grand from being paid off and I'll be making the choice whether to keep it or trade it in on a new one or something else. The lower design is the most recent "concept leak" and if it's true then my current Stang will stay safe in my possession.
The lines are so boring and it looks like a slightly changed Fusion. The top one is extremely aggressive and has that wide rear. Time will tell but I'm bracing for disappointment.

So needless to say I'm extremely excited to pick it up tomorrow. The dealer replaced the windshield because of a small chip that seemed to be starting to spider. I think I might continue his tradition of adding stuff to it perhaps starting with rock rails. But first things first winter can kiss my ass.

The first time I was driving down the street and some guy stepped in front of my car from a bus stop. I saw it was a cop and he held out his hand as if telling me to stop or slow down. Well instead I drove around him. First of all I thought what a dumb ass stepping out in front of a speeding vehicle and secondly I saw no patrol car and thought I would be long gone before he called me in and they started looking for me. Turns out I was wrong and he had a car stashed away. That fact pisses me off a bit because if I would have noticed he was running to his car I would have been VERY gone by the time he got going. But I didn't notice and he hopped in it and caught up with me. He asked me what the hell I was doing and I claimed I didn't notice he was a cop and was confused why someone was stepping in front of a moving vehicle. I don't know if he bought it or not but my ticket was just $45 which was cheaper than any ticket I have ever gotten in my life. So I happily took it.
As I drove away I tried to understand what just happened. The only thing I can think of is they don't keep a record of out of the country violations. If they did he would have seen that just a few months ago I had been pulled over for speeding in nearly the same area. Perhaps processing out of the country tickets might be a bigger pain to process. Also I think my tickets in Canada never reach my insurance company in the States because my rates have never changed.
It's the perfect situation!!

I have done pad changes in the past but only on old muscle car drum brakes. Never tried discs. But it turns out to be stupid simple. You do need to rent a tool to compress the brake but as long as you buy the pads from the same part store they don't charge you at all for the rental.
As you can see below the pad was worn clear down to the clip. The change was super easy. Taking it to the dealer would have been a huge waste of money so glad I did it myself.

I'm having trouble with the tail lights on my 2007 Mustang GT. As the video shows one bulb doesn't work sometimes.
At first I thought the sequential light kit was the problem but I replaced the sequential wiring harness with the stick one and had the same issue with the same bulb.
I then checked the fuses (all the 30s) and found them to be fine.
Got any ideas?

I listened to an interview with the head of Dodge's SRT group who said the idea of a Barracuda has been tossed around but was well of in the future. Today I was in a doctors office reading the April edition of Car and Driver and I see the SRT Barracuda listed as a possible addition to their 2015 line up. Below is the concept drawing in classic Plum Crazy purple.
