    Come on. Haven’t you heard of cars with silver on silver on silver. Hmmm. Maybe that was black on black on black.

I never drove it when it dipped close to the 30's, but 50° - 65°F was a prime area for engine performance LOL. The new or newer Mustang I end up with, I plan to drive it all year-round, save for snow.
    Save for a few mountainous areas of the country, we don't really have that problem in Australia.

    In fact, ALL Mustangs delivered in Australia come standard with the Performance Pack. Sadly, we don't have the choice you guys have with models, packages and equipment groups. As I said earlier, it's a take it or leave it approach. I actually think Ford should offer a more basic spec V8 Mustang in Australia for those who can't afford or don't want the Performance Pack. The reality is, Ford sell every single Mustang they can get in Australia. Almost all of them are customer ordered cars with little to no floor stock whatsoever, so Ford have no incentive to offer such a thing.

    Re: DFB's Garage

    After having to navigate the mess that is our public hospital to have a simple blood test and ECG for an upcoming procedure, I needed a lift. The Mustang was just the thing.........



    Loving the new black lug nuts!

    I even got to overtake some bozo in a Kia doing 40 km/h in a 100 zone at full noise. People complain about these NA Coyote's having no torque, well these things rip above the 4,000 rpm VCT change over point, right up to the rev limiter, the upshift landing the engine right back in the meat of the power curve. It's very addictive!

    With a garage full of clean cars, the only one that "needed" attention was the Ranger, and with 3 days of rain and flooding predicted, I wasn't going to bother getting the pressure washer out. So, I decided to keep honing my rinse-less skills, using Absolute again.



    Like my first use of Absolute, I used Bead Maker as a drying aid with a Gauntlet towel, such a great combination. Interior vacuumed and wiped over with InnerQD, it will be clean for at least a few hours.

    You got private health insurance? Public hospitals are a mess here, we actually had a really good system, but our local government invested millions in two AFL teams to play a few games a year and said stuff the Tasmanian citizen's i hope you procedure goes well
