My X-Wing

How I came by the car: My previous car was a Toyota Yaris and I was bored. It was a good car, but I wanted something sportier. I test drove a grabber blue Mustang GT (premium package with the glass roof and 5 speed.) I liked it and had a good deal on the price since I have a friend who works for Ford and gave me a friends/family code, however, the dealer (Bill McCoy Ford, Muncie, IN) was trying to make their money back by offering me an insulting amount for my trade. I told them to forget it and waited a few weeks. Then at the end of December I stopped by Sam Pierce Chevy in Daleville, IN and found the X-Wing. I test drove it and then drove it home that night after signing the papers.

Delivery day:



The first few cold weeks:



The winter wheel/tire package: (Wheels from tirerack.com, Pirelli Scorpions from Discount Tire locally)

Vinyl bowtie for the front (it doesn't look like it matches in the pic, but isn't as bad in person.)

That's a hell of a pic. Have you run into any black with blue stripes Mustangs that refer to themselves as TIE fighters?

Not yet, but I'll get some. They forgot to send me one of the parts for it (that controls the dual circuits) but they told me that they were shipping it today. When it arrives I'll get some good night pics.

Not yet, but it would be a good dog fight.

I was inside talking to someone when the guy in the 4th gen. pulled up and I had to run out and take a picture. He did the same thing and we talked for a few.
