My first Mustang

Hey HPJ gang.

Long time GM / Honda owner, but I just bought my first Mustang. I really picked it up for my daughter as a weekend toy who is turning 16 in December.

I'll be enjoying it over the summer while learning more about it and cleaning it up a bit.

2001 Laser red convertible with the 3.8 V6 and black leather interior / top.

69k original miles.
BBK intake
BBK 65mm throttle body
BBK headers in to x pipe with Magna flow mufflers with duals running out the back
New electric radiator fan
New Fuel and water pumps
Sequential tail lights
Hood struts replaced the prop rod

I think the wheels are off another year model. Not sure but they look ok with a couple rashes


@Mustang folks - tell me what you recommend to look for from a maintenance and longevity perspective. Hoping this will get her through high school and possibly beyond.

No idea on issues with them, but you could LS swap it!

Wheels are off of a 96-98 GT

Picked up a color matched spoiler on Craigslist for $25 and mounted it up today.

Cleaned up the washable air filter and put in new spark plugs.

Picked up a little mpg

278 miles / 13.6 gallons = 20.4

Can't go wrong with a mustang for your kid!
Great parenting right there!

Cause no kid is gonna say, "Remember when my dad got me that Prius".
