Installed some rear-window louvers for my Mustang

W00t! Old-school coolness for my late-model Fox-body! None of you probably care but I wanna show it off anyway...

You know when I was in the US the other week I didn't see one decent looking car that wasn't European. American cars on the whole are fugly as hell.

Dump the louvres and get some venetians.

Much more old school.

Very nice. I used to have those same wheels on my '85 Thunderbird Turbocoupe, btw. You should look into some '87-'88 16" Turbocoupe wheels

Yeah, these 15" 10-hole wheels are the same time of wheels that have been used on the standard GTs of earlier Fox-body wheels, but I wanna get a set of the 16" Pony wheels, found on the 1991-1993 5.0s...



Those would be the best...



Or the Turbine wheels from the 1993 SVT Cobra...

My old favortie car used to be the Lexus IS, but then they changed it (made it look more like an average tuner car) and I laid my eyes on the Chrysler 300, which became my new favorite.

Don't forget i'm talking about cars I would actually buy, not my dream car or anything.

Their my favorite cars I like to see riding around.
(btw, I know alot of people say the 300 is a bulky car, but it's a really nice car - honestly!)

if your PC cost more than your car you either have a completely shite car or you got ripped off buying your PC.

They still serve a purpose...

Given how hot it gets here in Kentucky during the summer, and that I've got a hatchback, I don't want the shit in the hatch area to get hot with the sun beating down on it...I could throw towels over my stuff, but that's way beyond dorky...

My dad got a 1968 Plymouth Belvedere with it's original straight-6 engine for around $1800...Even for a car to restore, it was in pretty good condition to start off with, with little roughness in the interior and exterior, and for something that's almost 4 decades old, still had 20-grand clocked on the odo...

$1500 can get you a damn-good car, depending on the location and supply & demand. I've personally never payed more than $1200 for any car I've owned, and that $1200 was for a 1992 Crown Victoria in awesome condition.

The louvers only add to that.

Not until some alternative fuel is developed that does not pollute the environment so much. Which isn't going to happen, so they're banned. All transport will be via public transport or bicycle. It will be hard to adapt to begin with, but future generations will not know what having a car was like, hence they won't miss them.
