On September 20, 2014 we will be celebrating the life of MM moderator and friend Travis Billings (aka Travis_afx). If you are new to the forum, you can catch up here: travis_afxThis will be the 3rd year for the memorial car show and we hope it will be as successful as the previous two. Like before, all profits from the show will be donated to the Youth Department at Bible Baptist Church in Enid, OK. A grand prize of a $500 Mac Tools gift card will be given away to a lucky entrant. Come out to Oakwood Mall 4125 W. Owen K. Garriott in Enid, OK and support a noble cause.
For some Mustang fans, becoming an owner is more than a dream, it’s a reality. There are some that don’t mind that the car has a few miles on it, but there are those, like our own Daniel S. (aka SunnyD) that come across opportunity with a new ride and grab hold. You see, the car you are looking at is not Daniel’s first Coyote powered ‘stang – that would have been a sterling grey 2011 model. When good incentives and a better credit score meant he could upgrade to the newly refreshed 2013 model, he jumped in. After a few tasteful changes, he also nabbed the July 2014 Ride of the Month.
Many months ago, Ford revealed to the world on live TV the new 2015 Mustang. Hints had been dropped that there would be an Independent Rear Suspension, more technology, and more power than the outgoing S197 chassis. There were rumors that the new car would even outrun the beloved 2013 Boss 302 around a road course, thanks to both the IRS and new found power, but they have been very tight lipped about how much exactly. Then the other rumors started flying that the V6 and V8 models would also get an EcoBoost sibling, but only the powertrain engineers and God Himself knew the actual horsepower numbers – and neither one was talking…until now.
There’s something to be said when a grandfather passes his legacy to a grandson. This generational handing of the torch, signifying the continuation of a passion doesn’t come often. In Andy’s ( AKA Aceswild02) case, his inherited passion is in cars. But when he wanted a project to memorialize the man responsible, there could only be one such ride. Enter his 1966 notch-back; Moddedmustang’s May 2014 Ride of The Month.
Out of Moddedmustangs.com’s humble beginnings rose a member hailing from a strange and barren land to the north. It’s a mysterious territory that sits just atop the USA in which milk is packaged in bags, ham is called “bacon”, the official bird is a maple leaf, and health care is on the house. No one really knows how Canada came into existence but it has produced one of MM’s most cherished members: TheUnzippee!. A father is there to give you guidance, a father is there to let you know when you screw up, a father is there to keep the peace amongst the “family”. A father is there to educate, a father is there to entertain, a father is there to admonish the insertion of rocks into and exhaust pipe, a father is there to teach you about cats, politics, and philosophy, and a father is committed to the cause. Zip, for all of your years of dedicated service to MM and for the hours of entertainment you provide, the Tech Exchange Staff would like to salute you for your efforts this Father’s Day.
