There's a new TIHSHO in town: http://www.nfscars.net/forum/showpost.php?p=600581&postcount=57
----------
Wow, can't believe I missed this subforum.
I have always watned this model car since middleschool and when I got the chance to buy it, I jumped at the opportunity. I had to drive 3 hours just to get to the dealer that had this car. Well worth the drive. My only conditions were that it had to be a GT and it HAD to be a Dark Blue.

Anyways, the Car is stock except for:
-Flowmaster American Thunder Series Exhaust
-Eibach Sportline Lowering Kit
-The Torque Thrust look alike rims
-If I remember correctly its 245's in the rear and 225's up front.
-Rear Louvers
-K/N Air Filter

Here is a video of what the car sounds like. It was recorded from a digicam so the quality isn't all that great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P22mhiPt34A

I got it back in 2003 and it only had around 30k on it. It is now over 70k lol
Anyways, here are the pics.

*EDIT* ok so the pictures where on an old server so here are some brand new ones.

I love the wheels...I want some normal Torq-Thrusts for my car :P

And the license plate too...I'm surprised nobody's commented yet :evil:

That's the stock shifter for that model, I believe.

Man I like your Mustang & I would like to buy one if I could afford it. It's a bit rare & too expensive for me to get it in Australia.:( It would possibly cost around $35,000 Aus dollars. How much is your Stang GT worth?

I've always thought of adding the chin spoiler but from what I've seen, it doesn't fit quite right. and I would add the CDC shaker system but thats too much money lol

Everytime I look at your car, the Mustang's menu sound from Midtown Madness 1 comes to my mind. The new pictures make the car look pretty sweet... and I love the color!

The "Rear Louvers", are those the black things in the rear window? If so, that's the only part I don't like on the car, but the rest is superb;)

Nice car! Love the stance. Very clean car. However, the headlights need replacing, or at least you gotta clean them out (as a fox guy, I've been there and done that) and those 4.6s are sloooooow when stock. Maybe a PI head swap or something? :D

I want to see it, you should arrange a little race with GTR's Camaro :D
It would be so cool to watch.

Well, after 6-7 years of the Mustang it was time to let her go. So let's meet TIHSHO v2.0 :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-EZ0tis21wio/TrG2utjvkuI/AAAAAAAAAPI/Y83jJyQbHNU/s640/11%2B-%2B1

I plan on a set of 50-60 series Flowmaster Mufflers, black grille up front and maybe tint the windows. Possibly new rims but we'll see haha.

So I am guessing you got the 3.0? That is a great motor, same one that was in my Sable and in my LS that I have now. They got some great pep to them and they are reliable. Great choice!
