While I really like the look of my 2007 Mustang I’ve always been a fan of the “classic” late ‘60s models.
In an ideal world this would mean one thing – a 1967 Convertible in the garage alongside the contemporary model.
Sadly at my pay-grade (and the need to have something more practical to ferry the family and dogs around in) I have to be a little more realistic… so thanks to the folks at AutoFX in Tacoma I’ve now got a “Pony Package” grill with fog lights and the corralled Pony emblem that harks back to the original GTs.
As we were adding more light to the front of the car I took the opportunity to get them to fit a daytime running kit as well, so the car lights up now whenever the ignition is on (given the dark mornings we’re having here at the moment I think that’s a good idea!).
While they were behind the dash, and because they know their way around the wiring loom a lot better than I do, I also got them to properly hardware the ZuneCORE so it’s now only powered when the radio is (saves me having to remember to unplug it!).
Now I have to negotiate with Rhiannon for some other small changes I want to make (I know, she’s 9 but already decided that when she passes Drivers Ed that the Mustang will be hers – I’ve agreed, for now, on the condition her grades are good…. if she uses this post in evidence against me in 7 years time I guess I asked for it!)
AutoFX did an excellent job and I’ll be going back there! Strongly recommended, and well worth the drive from Redmond even in rush hour :)
