Half a pony
Permalink Closed


So, I'm at work...you know...Autozone.

I had a repeat customer come in today, I've helped him once before. Of course like every guy that comes in he's amazed that a girl works in a auto parts store, drives a faster than your every day car... He's just as wide-eyed as the last guy.disbelief so he needed a coolant temp sensor for his v6 mustang... yea yawn. Before I tell him prices & all that garbage he asks, "That is your Monte carlo outside, right?" Lets stop here. The last time he came in for parts on his half-a-pony car he questioned what I drive. I joked around a little, kinda made fun of his puny bone stock stang. He thought it was cool I owned a supercharged monte.. This guy knew absolutely nothing about it. So. back to today. After I told him yes, 'thats my monte' his eyes like...lit up. He goes off, "Those cars are awesome! 240HP that can scream down the street! That supercharger must give it one hell of a kick! How many miles you got on that thing?" ..."uh....60k.."  "Wow! thats amazing! Were did you find such a thing!" ...."a dealership?" "Damn, it must be quick! verses my 190HP stang.." "Yea...even N/A my monte can blow you out of the water.."  "Nahhhh, i doubt that! the stang runs strong!"   Hahaha, I call bulls#it on that. With the way the coolant temperature sensor looks like I seriously doubt your half a$$ excuse of a stang can even come close. Go back home, momma wants her car back.  I find it funny he took the time to go home and research my car..see what she puts out. Why do people with v6 mustangs think they got it all? no I see your flaw, your not going to impress me.

nice story..lol
heck i never understood why buy a basic sports car.. bare v6 mustang no spoiler no guts whats the point they dime a dozen.. at least a non ss monte still looks smooth but a basic mustang looks so whimpy... if u cant afford the higher engine model then save up or look at another car .. it was ike all those 80's camaro's it was like they where dime a dozen and rarely u saw a iroc or a z28 in those days..

I know!!!!
With the 5th & 6th gen monte's its ok to brag about what you got BECAUSE it never was bigger than a v6. Buying a base model of such a iconic car is a disgrace. Its like buying a Ferrari without a engine. You can say you have a Ferrari, but all you have is its shell.

yea i love watching cars shows of guys who restore them and they find a guy with a sports car and then whamo hey wheres the engine.. u aint got one? well then here is 100 bucks for the body..lol
thing is even with a basic monte the tail end of her looks nice doesnt hurt by not haveing a spoiler.. u buy a basic mustang without the spoiler and it looks so extremly lacking .. its just their design.. corvette looks perfect with or without.. camaro, never really seen a actual spoiler cause for while it was more like a handle built into the lid.. so its fine with or without since that model changed to much over the yrs.. but a stang without a spoiler is saying hi i got a v6.. oh and when they have the word mustang across door for those who didint know what it was..its a v6 as well..with a stang they change the appearance enough in front on sides in back to tell what shes got underneath.. a monte looks same either way cause its a very nice design that works..heck a LT trim gets u dual exhaust .. basically monte looks fast cause it was designed for nascar...mustang wasnt therefor u gotta spend the huge money for a actual stang .. did u see how many freakin models on fords website there are of the stang geez.. wonder why noone has any idea what is or isnt under a stang these days...i do want to put emblems on my car saying 5.3 same spot the stang has their new 5.0 .. except i looked their new 5.0 up wow how can they call that a 5.0 lolmakes my 5.3 look like a 3.8
