I bought this car in June of 2002 after having owned a couple of SN95s prior. At the time I also owned a 1987 Buick Regal Turbo T which was an odd pairing in my garage being that these cars were enemies in the 80’s and early 90’s. Anyway, I didn’t change a whole lot about the car and just performed a few upgrades that are mostly needed on any SN95 Mustang. I am not big on changing appearances but rather function. The car still gets a lot of compliments on the street since it looks so good and is maintained so well. I only put about 3-4 thousand miles a year on it and it is always stored inside so the paint still glistens like new after over 20 years.
