How much money have you put down on your stang?

  • Sponsors (?)

The same week I bought me car i had to rebuild my transmission, my 3rd gear was shot. that was 2100. Before I had my car the exhaust and intake was on sooo thats at least close to another grand. Then this last december, new hood, new passenger door (got into an accident) painted them, and new tires, that was another grand. So im up there around 4-5 grand, but im pretty sure most of the guys here have me covered lol.
im assuming ur talking about down payment, i put my ws6 as down payment
differentially NOT a cheap car to have. because sooner or later the mod's will start
as far as repairs. i have been lucky so far just spark plugs and tires
Sorry, I wasn't clear before, I'm talking about how how put money have you put down on your car on mods or repairs.

like i said before.i have been lucky so far as repairs go, i don't even want to think about how much i have spent on MOD's. and all the new box's of parts in my room. lets just say im lucky my lady don't leave me, and i just doing bolt on's
I dont want to think about it. :(I bought the car new, and I've never stopped spending money on it. I'm keeping it forever tho. I'll be the one and only owner until I croak.:nice:

I should clarify tho.... this car has been very reliable. I have put most of my cash into mods. I replaced a few aging parts (it looks like it just rolled off the lot) but nothing major has gone wrong yet. Fingers crossed.
1st one- stalker kit and to get painted - 4000, wheels and tires - 2100, wrecked it, got it fixed (10,500), 2nd one, didnt spend much on it, a system (400), 3rd one, spent about 200, current one, spent about 1000. So all together I have about 18,000 in Mustangs without the price of the car itself. wow
