    Happy to meet everyone and become a member of this forum!!

    I needed to get another vehicle as after 13yrs i have another kid on the way. I've owned Mustangs the past 15yrs and no way i am playing the car seat game in that kind of car again. The wife as an Escape that i can't stand to drive due to my height. My options were to trade the Mustang in and get something else or keep the Mustang and find a used daily driver. I opted to keep the car and start the hunt for something i would actually have fun in daily driving.

    I found a black 2011 SHO that ticked all of the boxes i needed. Fun daily, plenty of room, and a car that can put a smile on my face when i get in it.

    2 owner vehicle with 100,000 miles with all of the service records in the glove box. I'm still going to pull a plug and check over all the standard maintenance items before i start to have some fun with it. This forum has already shown me what i need to take a look at and i really appreciate it.

    I'd like to get it within a second or so of my Mustang. Best time in that has been 11.4 @123 with a 1.8 60ft

    Thanks SM105K!!!

    I ordered a new set of OEM floor mats yesterday and taking it to my buddy's shop this weekend to go through the whole car.

    It has brand new no name tires on it. Happy it has new tires. Sad it has some no name brand on it.

    I have my stock 18in wheels and tires from my 18GT that i might see if they line up. Unsure of the bolt pattern at the moment and if i'd have too much of a fender gap going from 20's down to 18's. But i do have some nice tires currently on the 18's.
