Airbrushed Pony just in!

Bill Coogle over at Unique Automotive Designs did an awesome job on the airbrushed pony! I ordered it through Harman's. They are authorized dealers for Unique Automotive Designs as are a few others... If you find an airbrushed pony, engine cover, or other part its a good bet that it's Bill Coogle's work. Check out his site at .

New pictures...

Well, we didn't wash Trinity but we did wipe her down with detailer and polish her up. Then we took new pictures for you today. I can't wait for the airbrushed pony to get her next week!!!


Tonight Jeff Holland of Autograph Sign Shoppe added the side stripe and windshield banner. The side stripes were designed after the '05 OEM Mustang stripes however instead of MUSTANG they have STAMPEDE. Jeff custom cut these based on my suggestions. Four were created so that if anything went wrong during install we'd have a spare. Well, the install went great so we used a third stripe as a windshield banner. Looks sharp. All three are silver, same as the rally stripes already on the car and the letters are cut out allowing the color underneath to show through. Here are some preleminary pictures taken tonight. I'll take more later when we have better light and an opportunity to clean the car again: I also received notice today that my airbrushed pony for the grill shipped today! Bill Coogle of has created a beautiful pony that will replace the chrome pony in my grille. This one will be Vista Blue Metallic, like the car, with silver metallic flames kind of like this.... although no two are exactly alike....

I also received in the mail yesterday a full set of V6 Pony Showlenses from Harmon's Showlenses. I was very excited about getting a blue set on Trinity ASAP. Well its late... Off to bed I go. More pictures soon! Thanks again to Jeff of Autograph, his wife Amy and their kids! We love you! Reba (& Susan)

Ford Mustang Stampede Edition

"Offered by only Texas and Oklahoma dealers, Ford has let loose a package sure to please cowboys and enthusiasts alike. A total of 500 Stampede edition Mustangs have been shipped to the roughly 300 Ford dealers in these two states. Building upon the existing V6 Pony Package, the 2006 Ford Mustang Stampede Edition exterior options includes 17-inch aluminum wheels and a pony grille with integrated foglamps. The Stampede Edition adds twin 9-inch silver racing stripes, rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tips, chrome pony spinners, a Stampede gas cap and special badging. Interior upgrades include six-way power seats, carpeted floor mats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and a MyColor instrument panel display, which features 125 color backgrounds at the touch of a button. An engraved and numbered plaque comes with each model to signify as special edition. Mustang has a long tradition of offering special packages like the Twister and California Special,” says Mark Grueber, Ford marketing strategy manager for the Southwest region. “We have a special Texas Edition F-150 and Super Duty, and Mustang is such a part of the Texas landscape, we thought it would be a natural fit.” “A lot of customers are looking for something unique,” Grueber said. “They want to ‘Texasize’ their vehicles. The Stampede gives them the opportunity to own something unique.”

Why R.E.S.P.E.C.T.? I feel that Trinity is beginning to blossom into her own full "unique-ness" that is causing heads to turn and a few eyes to stare. This makes folks close to me a bit nervous. DFW has its share of car-jacking, theives, and fools, but I can't sit around and sweat the "What If"'s and in turn lose out on what is or what could be. I won't live my life in fear. If there's a chance that they will take your stuff you have two choices - give it up and live or hold on to it and maybe not go home that night. I'd rather hand the keys over to someone who wanted my ride bad enough to threaten my life to get it. Besides, hidden in the car is a device that can tell me where it is anyway and I can shut it down myself within minutes making it inoperable to any thief. By then they would be far away from me but yet easier to find by police. False security? Nah. I still know to keep the doors locked, keep the music low in areas where you don't want to call too much attention to youreslf, and make sure someone always knows where I'm at. So.. with that in mind, I've got MORE planned for this car!!

Like in 1967-1968 Ford decided to do some regional specials again with this Stampede Edition and a California Edition (in California) prior to the release of the 2007 Shelby GT 500 and the 2007 California Edition package available on all 2007's regardless of where they are purchased (orginal California Special was only in California).
