#featurecar - today it’s Bill with his grabber blue whipple supercharged beast! He says:
Mustangs have been my ultimate dream car since I was 9 years old and no other car would do. I bought my S550 in 2017 and haven't been disappointed with it. My first mods were Roush axle backs followed by a H pipe cat back exhaust, then 25mm Eibach spacers all round. Then came the Whipple 2.9L Stage II Gen 3 supercharger, which produces 652 bhp and 510 ft lbs torque, which makes the car a different beast altogether. I also added a Shelby super snake gauge pod. I then lowered the car on Peddars extreme fully adjustable suspension. All the work has been done at @gt101.co.uk (the clubhouse). My latest mod has been a Chip Foose spoiler. At the time of getting the car I wasn't a member of any clubs, but then I met Scully in Tescos car park of all places!!! This has led to meeting Luke and other mustang owners and eventually this became the Essex mustang owners. They're a fun bunch of like minded people. I'm undecided about the next mod so watch this space. 💙💙💙💙💙
#featurecar - This time it’s Andy, He says; Hey all, so ive been asked to do a member spotlight!
Ive been a car enthusiast since i was little, which eventually led me to working for Ripspeed (the real Ripspeed not the Halfords rubbish it turned into) when i was young, fitting audio systems and selling many other mods, my car history has been very Ford based over the years, couple of Fiestas including an XR2, Escort Mk3 Cabriolet, MK1 RS Orion then some other stuff BMW M3 etc etc.
But i always wanted a V8. The lease was up on my VW Truck and i started looking around. Loved the
Mustang and the Camaro but the Mustang won in the end!
Glad it did as ive loved it since day one! Picked it up on my birthday May 3rd 2018, with the misses leaving
a Lego Mustang on the passenger seat as well!
Been a member of Essex Mustang Owners since then and started attending a lot of the meets when time (and
the misses) allows 😀
She (the car, not the misses) is called the black sheep as the end of the plate is BAA!!
Shes a Black GT S550 just before the facelift with the ceramic white interior, because Ford were doing silly deals on them you couldn't say no too. Usual add ons, Shakes Pro, Rear Camera, Heated and Cooled seats.
Ive done a few mods to her but im a big fan of the subtle mods, only someone who knows their cars would notice so thats what ive been doing.
I wont list them all (and no posting on here peeps who already know!) ill let you try and find them
all when i see you at a meet! But probably my favorite is the rear LED marker lights in smoke. They get rid of the horrible orange reflectors and on a black car that makes a real difference.
Next up is probably windows tints as ive found in the summer it gets roasting inside and adds a bit of privacy as well.
Ill be at Ford Fest at the end of the month so even if you arnt on the stand come along and say hi! ——————————————————————————
