It is not literal ceramics. Too brittle. None of them are, but they share hardness similar to a ceramic piece. Mine has siloxanes in it in addition to silicones, synthetic waxes, and more. UV light (from the sun) cures it. It’s wild.
Truly epic! A DB7 coupe with a manual is my favorite Aston Martin. Those looks with that silky supercharged I6 and a row-your-own transmission is just perfection.
That’s a rare machine. Only 529 were made.
Nice! Was that one with a I6 engine or with a V12?
So out of place. At least they're durable.
I don’t get incredibly jealous very often, but sweet jesus I am jealous right now. Hnnnggg.
It’s owner has Jake Luck/5, but has made success out of it.
I normally don’t like light color interiors or wood grain at all but that looks phenomenal
Knowing your luck, if you ever ended up with one, it would be your most reliable car.
I normally don’t like the super glossy wood look but oh man... That interior is wonderful
Base level Mustangs are never phenomenal out of the gate, however, they’re blank canvases with enormous performance potential. That has always been the case. Look at the handling numbers on a base 3v S197 vs a Boss 302. Big gains can be had using OEM components. Going aftermarket takes it even further.
I dreamed of owning one of these when I was young (I was 13 when these came out!). My neighbor had a v6 with the pony package, and would beg for rides all the time.
My coworker has an 09 GT, manual. I drove it around a bit, it’s sort of like a fast truck with a car seating position. I enjoyed it, the grunt of the V8 was addicting. I absolutely could never own one, even if only because of the certainty of speeding tickets. The gearbox is surprisingly lovely to use.
I loved pop’s ‘08 GT in Titanium Alloy metallic. The only body accessory it had was the GT wing (but we were trying to find a V6 trunk to swap for the ducktail spoiler). I loved it but the fact the interior was starting to rattle on long highway trips make me fall out of love with it. That said, before the interior…
I bought one new in ‘05. It was a red GT with Shaker 500 and the aluminum trim with cloth seats. It was impossible to find a GT on dealer lots so I had to order it. Great road trip car.
I thought about getting one last time I was shopping, but they were all way too expensive for 10-15 year old Ford. For the same money I bought my e90.
“This year, armed with nothing but an angle grinder and a HF welder, I will be fitting an array of six Homelite string trimmer engines in this dilapidated Jeep Scrambler and driving from Troy, MI to Moab.”
The big difference is that there’s actual enforced laws for autos. Yeah, they do their fair share of bad, too! No one’s a saint. But should you try parking your car on an access ramp for the sidewalk for any length of time, it probably won’t end well.
I have that same radio in my car, it’s good for a cheapy, but you’re gonna want to put some tape or paint over a few of those buttons because the blue light is super hella fuckin bright at night. It’s enough to really bother me when it’s below and off to the side of my line of sight, I can’t imagine how bad it would…
You lucky person, you.
