Caleb Younts - 2003 Ford Mustang
Since my passion for automobiles first came to light, one vehicle has commanded my attention above all others, to the point of obsession. When it was nearing time for me to get my license and secure my first car, I had my heart set on piloting a Ford Mustang. With a lot of luck and parents who were willing to make car payments, I became the ecstatic owner of a 2003 Mustang Coupe in true blue factory paint. It was priced to sell by a private owner, had little miles on the odometer, and came equipped with a budget-minded 3.8L V6 and rookie-friendly 4R70W automatic transmission. In every way, this 'Stang was the perfect car for me, and only fueled my ever-growing craze for everything Mustang.
For several years now my car has been a super-reliable daily driver, handling the abuse with style and providing me with an exciting drive when I need it. I enjoy every minute spent bonding with my machine, and I continue to personalize the 'Stang whenever possible. I am a student primarily, so my focus is on my education and funds for modding the car are usually limited. Despite the obstacles, I have managed to transform a bone-stock Mustang into a unique ride that always invokes my deep pride in it and the entire Mustang culture.
As of now, the 'Stang is loaded with a respectable amount of mods. The car's improved looks come from a Mach 1 chin spoiler and grille delete combination, side scoop inserts, decals, and a set of 17" SC Style Wheels in chrome. Upping performance is a BBK cold air intake and throttle body combination along with an intake spacer and a Flowmaster Force II cat-back system. I have left no area untouched, as the interior is fitted with several billet pieces and a pair of Sunpro gauges in an A-pillar pod, and an improved suspension set-up includes a Steeda 2-point strut tower brace, rear sway bar, and weld-on subframe connectors.
