I received a call from a customer the other day with an 06 Ford Mustang… He had previously purchased the painted slotted Mustang window louvers as well as the painted Mustang hood scoop and the painted Mustang rear spoiler. His problem was this…

He was on the fence as to whether or not he should get the rally stripe down the center of his Mustang… He liked the way it broke up the mono-tone look of the rear end, defined the lines of the rear end and added a custom look, but he was worried it would be too over the top. Personally, I really like the rally stripe… I think it looks aggressive, and I told him as much. He however remained unconvinced… He was worried the wife wouldn’t like it.

Since his main concern was achieving a custom look, without being obnoxious I suggested our Mustang Honeycomb Taillight Panel. It seemed the perfect fit… He thought so too.

Mustang Honeycomb Taillight Panel

The Custom Honeycomb Rear Deck Trim Panel for a 2005-2008 Ford Mustang will fit any GT, V6, Shelby or Roush Mustang between 2005 and 2008. So it is perfect if you are looking for a simple but stylish way to customize your 2005-2008 Ford Mustang.

Plus installation is a breeze! The Custom Honeycomb Taillight Trim Panel attaches easily with 3M adhesive tape just like the factory mouldings. Once installed you’re assured of long lasting beauty since the panel is composed entirely of UV resistant automotive grade exterior plastic to avoid cracking and fading, and (as an added protection) drains are provided in the bottom to avoid moisture being trapped behind the panel.

It really is a great way to give your 2005 – 2008 Mustang a custom look stylishly, and inexpensively.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Bullitt wheels for your Mustang. I admitted then, and I’ll say it again… For my money there is simply nothing cooler than Steve McQueen or the Ford Mustang! Nothing!

It would appear that I am not the only person who feels this way… Apparently the folks over at Ford feel the same as evidenced by the release of the new 2008 Mustang Bullitt

2008 Mustang Bullitt

Ford has created the perfect sleeper by eliminating the badging, the spoiler, and doing away with the awkward looking fog lights by adding a unique black mesh grille with metallic surround. Add to this a Dark Highland Green paint job and black leather interior with engine turn aluminum trim and a rumbling exhaust tone that matches the movie car, topped off with a 4.6-liter V-8, with cold-air induction technology, and a modified chassis and suspension and what you get is the 2008 Mustang Bullitt! A Mustang which remains true to its heritage.

If… Like me, you are obsessed with the new Bullitt Mustang but already own a GT you can always add a little Bullitt style to your current Mustang GT! Check out these deals…

The V6 Mustang is actually more popular than anyone had anticipated. I think this is mostly due to the availability of the Pony Package. This package which became available in 2006 includes a special grille with a chrome corral around the running horse, and Mustang GT like fog lights, 17″ wheels and tires, and tri-bar pony front fender badges.

The Pony Package offered Mustang V-6 customers GT-inspired options without the GT price tag. Although the Pony Package option can still run you a pretty penny, it’s certainly no where near the price tag for a GT. The thing is… Why not save even more money? Did you know if you were to buy the standard V6 Mustang and purchase the major components of the Pony Package after the fact and install them yourself you could realistically save thousands of dollars…

I’m not kidding… If you purchase the standard V6 Mustang and then add a…

2005 - 2008 Factory Complete Ford™ Mustang V6 Pony Package Grille Kit

and the…

2005 – 2008 OEM Ford™ Mustang Pony Package Emblem Kit

and then some…

You would have just about all of the components that make up the V-6 Pony Package from Ford… Except you will have spent a whole lot less than you would have at the dealer. Plus! You get the satisfaction of having installed it yourself!

Steve McQueen in BullittSteve McQueen and the Mustang… They will forever be married in the minds of the American public. Both represent the epitome of cool. If you own, or have ever owned a Mustang for that matter, chances are you have pulled up to many a stoplight imagining yourself as San Francisco police Lt. Frank Bullitt as played by Steve Mcqueen, noticing the black 1968 Dodge Charger R/T 440 of your nemesis pull up beside you.

As you wait at the light the Charger’s driver fastens his seat belt with sober deliberateness. The light changes to green, the driver stands on the Dodge’s accelerator, you stand on yours and two celebrated American muscle cars show what they’re made of. Seven glorious minutes of the greatest chase ever captured on film is on.

That chase scene did wonders for the Mustang, catapulting it into the stuff of legend in the minds and more importantly the hearts of Americans. Ford offered a limited edition anniversary “Bullitt” Mustang for model-year 2001, and is promising a new edition for 2008. The new Bullitt is supposed to be the best interpretation so far of the iconic 1968 390 GT driven by Steve McQueen in “Bullitt”, the movie that still boasts the best real-world chase sequence ever.

If you own a Mustang you have to have Bullitt style wheels. The problem is they aren’t exactly cheap. However you can purchase OEM Ford™ 17″ Bullitt Style Wheels and Tires for your Mustang at about half the price of purchasing them from a Ford dealership by buying dealer takeoffs. As we talked about before, most dealerships have a surplus of stock factory parts which technically can’t be sold as new because they are take offs, even though the majority of dealer take off parts have fewer than five miles of operation.

Check out these deals…
