New from IL

Post by 2003mustanggt » Tue Dec 07, 2010 7:04 pm

Hi all,
I just recently bought a 2003 Mustang GT five speed off of ebay and it will be shipped here this thursday :D . I'm somewhat new to manuals as I've only driven stick a few times in the corolla my mom use to have. I hope to learn a lot here. Here are some pics.

Hey IL buddy!

I'll be over in 30. Call you when I get there.

Just kidding. Not sure what that was all about though. Are you planning to drive the stang in the winter or will you be putting it away?

I've been to Peoria on a few occasions. Not a bad town. I spent a chunk of time by the river taking pics of the bridge and stuff. It's a good spring cruze for the goat to stretch out. Been there this summer.
