Taking the Mustang to the shop tomorrow, unfortunately not to get performance parts.  

 

I barely put miles on the car but I've been super slack with maintenance.  I'm getting this weird shaking in the steering wheel.  It doesn't feel like a vibrating tire, it feels like worn out tie rods.  

Gotta keep on top of it cos that **** will creep up on you.

 

Also, I will find out in the next day or so about that thing I mentioned via pm.

Okay cool, just let me know!

 

Luckily our other car will be paid off in November, once it is we're going to dump money in to maintenance on both cars.

Nice! It's a good feeling getting a car paid off, I don't think I'll ever go through finance for one again.

I'm just hoping they both hold out.  

 

The plan is to buy something cheap so I don't have to keep driving the Stang daily.  I haven't decided if I want to just buy a $4000 car or maybe put $4000 down on a $10000 car.  I'm sure I could get something that screams daily driver and gets good gas mileage for that

Ever considered a bike as a daily? I ride a little cbr250 and it's so damn cheap on fuel that it's pretty much paid for itself. I guess a bike wouldn't be practical year round for you would it?

Had $ put away for car funds to buy something more fun. Bought an 03 Taurus a couple years back with 89k miles on it for 5,200 and got it paid off last August. Transmission goes out right after it hits 100k miles. Went back and forth with the idea for 2-3 days and decided I'd rather put $1,200 into it for a used tranny than buy a new car. Not having a car payment is just the areolas but my butthole still puckered having to drop that much $. I would suggest just buying a cheap daily driver for now until you can save up for something more fun.

I'm going to make a strong push into looking into getting adopted by this family. Guys last name was Speed. Had 7 kids. None of them road the horse he bought them so he traded it in for a 65 Mustang. Now all 7 of them own Mustangs.

Yeah it gets cold enough in the winter that would be miserable.  

 

I'm also kinda scared of bikes.

You looking for something that's original or something that's been upgraded?

It'd be awesome to get one with a modern Coyote motor in it like this guy:

 

 

My old boss has a '69 Camaro that has the drivetrain from a C6 Corvette.  Suspension, brakes, everything is modernized.  It's amazin'

Yeah they are a handful to drive according to many owners

As light as they are all you need is 300-400 horse and it would probably be fast enough to make people **** their pants

Both of the inner tie rods are shot.  Some **** broke off in my rear brakes too.  Looking at $875 right now.
