My 200,000 mile Mustang


Just signed up but have been familiar with and a lurker on MM for several years now. I just thought I would share a huge milestone in my Mustangs life with you guys on here because I am pretty damn proud of it! I rolled over 200,000 miles on my Mustang this week

A little about the car and my experiences with it...

1999 GT, built in 98'
Automatic transmission
Purchased on Halloween in 2003
Mileage when purchased: 54,265
Purchase price: $14,888.00
Paid it off: 03/09/2007

First bought the car with no intentions of every toying with it since I had a show truck that was my baby at the time. The Mustang was just a means of transportation for me. I soon lost interest in the truck, sold it, turned my attention to the car! It has been through a couple of appearance changes and only a few minor mods. I have never (knock on wood) had any engine problems other than a cracked intake manifold which was a recall some years back. Engine has never been rebuilt, tranny never rebuilt, no rear end issues, etc. I nearly lost it last year due to a fuel leak. One of the fuel lines on the back of the fuel rails touched the manifold and melted a hole in it, spraying fuel onto the manifold. Other than that, all stock internals and sporting a helicoil on one of the cylinders from a plug blow out from 2003.

Had a few minor accidents with it. I have been rear ended 5 times..one of those with a lawn mower while it was parked! Only damage was having to get the rear bumper repainted and then eventually replaced. Beginning of this year I closed the garage door on the rear bumper scraping a row of silver paint off all the way down thanks to a bolt sticking out of the garage door support. Switched to the Roush front fascia after hitting a pile of carpet in the middle of the road doing 45mph on a foggy night that resulted in caving the whole stock bumper in. Driver side quarter panel was punched several years ago when I fight broke out in a Whataburger parking lot resulting in a fist sized dent with cracked paint. 3 new pair of headlights over the years, nearing time for my 4th pair!! Anyway..everything is fixed now other than a few minor chips on the front fascia from driving it everyday!

Just basic mods: BBK CAI, BBK fuel rails, XCAL tuned by Tim @ Mr. Norms Garage, Eibach sportline springs, Toxico shocks, Steeda bumpsteer kit with X2 balljoints, Bassani o/r xpipe, flowmaster 40's.

Pretty mods: Roush Stage 3 fascia, Kaenen Cobra R hood, smoothed out rear bumper, filled in 3rd brake light and deck lid key hole, 05 GT emblems, Steeda hoodpins, 17x9, 17x10.5 silver FR500's wrapped in typical Sumo's. 5% tint all around, 20% entire front windshield.

A few pics from newest to oldest. Built Ford tough right? Hope all your Mustangs make it as long as mine

The big day!


A few shots from the 200K mile day







A few from last year before the extra little bit of drop in the front and addition to black accent inside Roush bumper



This is how it looked from basically 2006-2010




2004-2006




Day 1 when I first got the car.

Pensacola, Florida

When Modular Powerhouse became MPH Performance, I designed their new MPH logo so Tim gave me a XCAL tuner. Gave him the car info and loaded the tuner with it and sent it to me. Tim then went to Mr. Norms Garage so when I needed the tune tweeked when I got the o/r xpipe I emailed him and he emailed me back a new tune to load.

That is awesome, and hits home to me. I drive my car 500 miles a week, every week, in the summer, just to get to work and back... more of course with personal use on weekends.

So I understand what it means to see a car that shiny with that many miles on it. You've done a tremendous job at keeping that car spotless and badass looking. That takes a lot of time and effort, so kudos on loving your car that much. Very inspiring for someone like me, who drives the shit out of his car every week.

Thanks! It is a PITA keeping it clean in Florida too with all the damn rain! That is one reason I ditched the polished aluminum bullet wheels! I would shine em up and as soon as it rained the were dull as hell!

Thanks guys! In most cases I would be ashamed to tell anyone that my car had 200,000 miles on it but I love my car and appreciate every mile I have put on it, so I am very proud when I tell people how many miles it rocks!
