Yellow Rose was a smashing success. Our little trio took Most Unique Display and all three of us earned Class Awards. Not bad at all. We had a blast! We did a Red, White and Blue theme as the "Patriotic Ponies" honoring our those who have served/are serving our country. Susan's "USA PNY" was the centerpiece of our display. Each of us had an individualized show poster describing our car and then at each corner and at the center posts were pictures of all three cars together with a description of our display and what we were doing (Honoring our troops). We also had a slideshow (with patriotic songs) of soldiers playing - some of which were family members of our club members including my Dad and my niece. We had giveaways and candy and red, white, and blue mardi gras beads. It was really fun.
Its been a busy busy show season. I participated in 18 Shows this season and earned 6 Class Awards, 3 Class Winners/First Place, 1 Director's Choice and the Most Unique Display honor. I started showing half-way through the 2007 season and completed 12 shows earning 5 Class Awards, 2 Class Winner/First Place and one Participant Choice Award.
Christmas is around the corner and I can't think of anything I want for the Stampede... Well, maybe some new leather covers for the seats but that's out of the $$$ range. Future thoughts may include a GT bumper and duals. My friend Donnie has a muffle delete that sounds sick on his Mustang! I keep imagining that times two! Other than that, I may have someone look at the suspension parts and tell me if they are V6 or V8. I don't think they are V6. The car is lower than Susan's V6 (I've measured it thank you!). The ride and handling are totally different. I realize I have traction control and she doesn't but I can turn that off and it doesn't change the fact that it just sticks to the road. We have the same wheels, same tires, same swaybars (?), same suspension (?)... I have ABS and traction control... but this thing corners like my old 2002 GT only better. Seriously. If you are a NTMC member and know me personally I'll let you drive it and see for yourself. Something is different in this Stampede package...

2008 Show Season changes have been started (they are never "done"!). The plenum is en route from the talented hands of Mickey and his wife Michelle over at Unique Automotive Designs (aka Madmics). I know it hasn't been that long but the USPS seems to be taking FOREVER to get it here. :D Pictures will be posted! That is the crown jewel in the recent changes... Other pieces recently added:
- Retention Rod, Chrome Plated 22"
- MRT Hood Struts
- Satin Billet Door Sill Accent Pieces
- Radiator Extensions - Vista Blue Metallic
- Radiator Cover - Vista Blue Metallic
- Fuse Box Cover - Vista Blue Metallic (with added Chrome Pony)

- Mirror Chrome (acrylic) accents on door reflector bezel

Even as I was working on these items I found a few more that I wanted to do and then there were others from my list that did not get done. Of course, my list is rather fluid and it changes as things are added. All changes are "bolt on" or items that can be easily removed at a later date when it is restored to original.
Oh... and I just turned over to 11K miles last weekend... She will be officially two on 3/30/08 (build date) but I will have had her two years in June. :D

Remember, when I originally posted about these I mentioned that I passed on the ones with the pony due to the fact that the pony on the auto transmission set was facing right? Well... Brian at SRP Racing read my blog and decided to surprise me.
As a special treat he included an extra brake pedal for the auto transmission with the pony facing left!! Yeah!
Needless to say, the plain one was not installed!
I managed to get through the rest of the work day and even to 6 PM before heading over to my friend Donnie's house. I'd like to say we installed them but Donnie did all the work. Something about "You don't want to watch..."... as he drilled into the metal of the brake pedal.
Here are some pictures of Donnie installing the pedals:
And the finished product:
This weekend I'll get an updated shot of the interior with all the billet and these beautiful new satin billet pedals.
Thank you Brian for a quality product that performs as well as it looks and for your excellent customer service! I'll be recommending you to all my fellow Mustang owners!
