I know Iíve been very quite on the forums lately, Iíve been in deep thought contemplating the next part of my life. With that being said Iíve decided to sell my ride. This was a decision that did not come easy for me. Iíve put my heart and soul into the car and hope that it ends up in a good home with someone that will trully care for it.   This isn't something that's easy for all.  It's had me in some pretty foul moods, I've almost been in devorce court twice since April over it.  Unfortunately, nothing has changedÖso I have to say farewell.  

Below is a list of modifications added to the car, some are factory installed items and others are aftermarket parts. Iíve kept all of the original parts that have been taken off the car, throttle body, H-pipe with cats, coolant tanks, etc etc.  So the car can be restored to original.

You can click on the link below which will take you to my website on GotStang. Most of the parts that have been installed have been photo documented on there. I know there are over 500 photos of the car posted on this site. The car has been a major part of my life over the last four years. Itís been my ride, my pride and my joy.

Pics are in!!! Hello all!
I know a majority of you are wondering how are cruise went this last Saturday. went GREAT!!!  For you mid and east coast peeps it's important for me to mention the weather wasn't perfect.  Halfway through the day the clouds rolled in and the temp dropped down to a freezing 65.  There was even a rain sighting...but not near us.  Over all it was a great event with 20 cars participating.  Not bad for a weekend that was threatened by rain.  Keyways winery in Temecula provided some great box lunches, wine and wonderful outdoor patio for us to kick it on.
I've put up some pics below to share with those that are tired of seeing nothing but white and those that love to see some cool cars.
I hope you all enjoy them and thanks for stoppin by.
Thank you to everyone that participated and a special thank you to Keyways Winery for letting us invade their place.  The food was great and the wine... was faaantastic. 
See you all at the next round up!
