0vm66t - Introduction
Just joined and introducing myself. I am a future owner of a Mustang once I am confident I know enough to make a good decision. This will be THE CAR I have been wanting all my life so I am going to take my time. In my early teens in the 70’s, my high-school aged neighbor owned a dark blue 302 Boss and I was his sidekick pulling parts from the junkyard and helping him work on it. It was the best feeling riding in the passenger seat, even though I couldn’t see over the dash at that time. The pride of that car has never left me and now is time have my own Mustang – a special one.
I plan to spend a lot of time here reading threads and getting up to ‘speed’ (pun intended) to know what mods I will plan on doing. 0vm66t is my handle on an Accord forum where I have just completed a 3 year project modding a garage queen V6 coupe, bought from an 86 year old retired pilot. I worked on all aspects; suspension, intake, exhaust, ECU, tuning etc. It was a great experience, I learned a lot and the experience has given me confidence to take the next step to a supercharged V8 Mustang.
It will be interesting to see where I land in the end, but at this time, with my limited knowledge, I plan to do many of the mods myself rather than buy a fully modded car, 600-700hp (more than Shelby stock), somewhat of a sleeper look – not super flashy, on the lower end of mileage, lowered/coilovers and very important – an awesome exhaust sound.
From what I have seen so far, this is a very positive and supportive community and I look forward hanging out here.
