To my knowledge I am the third owner of my car and here’s the story.
Back in 2005 this Mustang was purchased by one of the salesman at Metro Motors in Port Coquitlam B.C. Not long after it was then sold to a man named Ken located in Maple Ridge. Where the car spend most of its life being driven to and from work or taken out for the occasional cruise.
Ken had bought the car and went to insure it and get new plates. Little did he know the good old ICBC gave him ex gang members license plates so a few weeks after he insured it with these new plates there was a drive by shooting that occurred at his house in the middle of the night putting bullets in his house, truck, and the trunk of his beloved Mustang GT. After finding out why his house got shot up and the blame being put on the insurance company for not destroying those plates in the first place. There was never any claim made and it was all to be as if it never happened.
Other than that there are no other crazy incidents to my knowledge. Ken had taken very good care of this car I have a folder full of receipts for all regular maintenance.
September 10th, 2017, was the day I purchased the Mustang GT with 160,000km. After saving as much as I could for 3 years I was finally able to buy my dream car at 16 years old. The following week I went down to Osoyoos B.C and drag raced my car at their 1/8th mile track. In doing so I started to hear a tick. Which at the time we all thought it was a cam phaser because as many know with these modular sohc ford v8s it’s a common issue. So we figure it was fine and raced it all day and then drove it home. which then I pulled off the valve cover and noticed that one of the rocker arms had jammed up and that’s what caused the ticking sound. So being in high school I couldn’t afford to put a couple grand into my car to fix it so took the insurance off and saved up over the winter a bought new Comp Cams, all new rocker arms, phaser limiters (because I got big ol’ cams) and a SCT tuner with BAMA racing tunes from AmericanMuscle.com. It was a very exciting year for me and I couldn’t be happier with the car.
Now as it sits September 5th, 2019 it’s looking better than ever with new wheels and some pretty bald tires. That’s all I got for now about my 2005 Mustang GT. thanks for reading my car’s story.
