Losing all the tech knowledge is my concern.

I'm not active in the tech sections anymore because I don't have a Mustang anymore, but when I did Sharkbait, Jazzer, and the guy with a red S281 (don't remember his name) were constantly helping me out with shit.

I know nothing will bring the old hats back, but I'd hate to see AG just pull the plug on the site and be like 'lol fuck you guys you're not clicking our ads enough' and can all the knowledge here because it's not filling their coffers.

Then sell your car and get a V6.

The V6 and even 5.0 sections are completely dead though, it's weird to see. There used to be a huge group of diehard foxbody guys, and the up and comers in the V6 section. Now you have a handful of new edge, S197, and S550 people, that's about it.

And don't even get me started on the 2.3 section. Tumbleweeds. Which is sad, because where the hell else am I supposed to get 2.3 info?


Facebook and places like that are just awful for tech info, and they seem to attract a much different crowd. Forums usually have a number of very tech oriented people, often very specialized on certain subjects, with how-to posts and all kinds of useful information. You go on other media and it's either the "ZOMG my Coyote with boltons is the fastest thing ever made, and here's some stupid Coyote vs. LS memes" crowd, or the "The Miata is the greatest car ever made, if you don't drive manual, kill yourself." crowd of teenagers that haven't ever actually driven, but have read every Jalopnik post ever. Sometimes you get someone with some semblance of tech knowledge, but usually they're cocky and only about half right.

I'm just waiting for the season premiere of "Ow, my balls!" Although I'm pretty sure that's already here in the form of the show "Ridiculousness." "Haha, oh man, that guy is totally paralyzed now! That's so funny!"

I agree that forums are dead.
Unfortunately, Facebook car groups are full of more idiots than forums. So many posts asking for help with terrible advice given.

I have also determined that new edges have gotten cheap enough that people who have no business working on a car have gotten ahold of them.

Yes. And now there is no such thing as a reasonably price, non-garbage new edge Mustang. Fucking sucks. I'd like to pick another one up some day in the future but they're all so damn ragged out and the ones that aren't are on a dealer lot for like $15k. GTFO

Same. I want a 03-04 Mach 1 to cruise around in as a summer DD when its a sunny day since the Boss is a sunny weekend cruiser for the most part. You know, something with nice comfortable seats, decent gas mileage, AC, tunes, etc. And still sounds and looks bad ass with some get up and go.

I really only want a Mach 1 because they are always been my favorite new edge. But a nice one with under 100k miles is 15k+ and I would not pay that for one.

I wouldn't mind an 02 Bullet either. But those are even harder to find in decent condition.

I would be, but when I say I am "interested" in buying one, I guess I mean I am interested in the future lol. Because right now I need to save up to buy a house after I graduate so I can stop wasting my money renting a house. After that I will be looking

I fucking hated that car and felt a huge weight off my shoulders when I sold it. But damn did it look pretty.

---------- Post added at 11:19 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:45 AM ----------

I guess I should say that I didn't fucking hate that car. I fucking hated the previous owner that cut corners and half-assed every little thing he touched on it and forced me to redo everything with quality and care for the next owner. I just couldn't even look at it anymore without getting stressed out and pissed. The dude that bought it from me got a hell of a deal after all the work I put into it so hopefully he enjoys it since his experience wasn't yet tainted like mine.
