    then it should be well broken in now so that you should register for the MCA 2020 National in Buffalo, NY
    Hey everybody took a year off showing this year. To drive around with my wife and just loving cruising with the top down. I did however go to the grand national in NH. We drove up Friday afternoon registered and guess what started cleaning the car. We stayed at a local hotel so we had a place to crash after sitting at the show. We met a lot of really nice people and cars. Sunday was the award ceremony. I was not expecting to recievec any award. We went to see the cars and meet other mustang owners. My wife however was very optimistic I actually sat way in the back and she was right up front. There are a lot of classes at these shows. So by the time my class was called (modified with out under carriage) I was thinking about the ride home. Well to my surprise I see my wife jumping up and down and waving to me. Then I hear 2006 mustang convertible wind veil blue owned by Stephen Cafaro silver award. I was so shocked it took me a coup!e of seconds to move. What a way to end my show season........
    Hey everybody just made my hotel reservation for the national show in NH. I am staying at a laquinta about 8 miles from show site.I do have a question about registration. I see there are 2 days to register Friday and Saturday. Do you have to go both days or only 1 day. I plan to register online in the occasionally driven class. If anybody is going I would like to meet you guys. I have a 2006 winveil blue convertible with barwxs as my liscense plate thanks for your help and Carmel by

    HI Everybody I have to questions I would like feedback on 1 how many mods do you think you can do to your car before it's considered a modified car and what type of mods. 2 Do you think that california/Cts stands should be considered a stock car as you buy it complete from Ford? Please .etc me know your thoughts Aidenshep

    Yes and Yes and No on the plenum cover, let us know what you go with on the upgrades ! ? If all the 06 v6 cars at a show were bone stock and ex-cond. how would they judge, by the color ? I see you already have GT wheels and Dual exhaust and the wood grain dash. Looks good. I'll try to find the Plenum Cover

    I have been seriously considering go to back to stock except for wood dash and wheels. Stock cars are getting rarer and rarer. I already have a martial report that says my 06 v6 in wind veil blue with black convertible top and dove gray interior is one off I think 178 ......

    The plenum covers are super rare, they show up on eBay from time to time, but not very often. The manufacturer went out of business a few years ago, and no one has picked up where they left off.
    After my recent post on exhaust systems received such nice comments and likes which I thank you for. I see a growing number of questions referring to front and rear suspensions ie rear wheel hop and tire options. I will soon post on thisthis as soon as I get my thoughts together:-)
    Hi every body. After helping one member directly I would like post here where everybody could use. It relates to exhaust systems and mods. Your exhaust basically does one thing. That is control back pressure. To much or to little back pressure can cause performance to drop. While the engines in our cars are basically air pumps. If you open up your exhaust and do not make intake upgrades ie larger intake manifold , hi flow heads, larger displacement engines. The exhaust upgrades would be of no real benefit. After cat exhaust upgrades are cancelled out by the stock cats. They determine the flow of exhaust through the system. Then factor the oxygen sensors which will try very hard to keep things in line with fords performance specs. Headers there would not raise performance without being in balance with your exhaust system and engine performance. Believe it or not the stock exhaust system does a very good job. I know a lot of you will disagree. But if everything is not upgraded evenly they can work against what you are try to achieveachieve. Exhaust systems get very technical. Then there are shorty cats and long tube cats. That would have to be addressed at another time. My background is as a certified NYSE master mechanic aand working in the field for a long time. I hope this helps everybody with basics exhaust issues.... Aidenshep Carmel ny
    Hey everybody after a nice mild winter I cannot wait for tthespring shows to start. Had aa lower valance iinstalled on rear bumper. Would not advise to do this. After a bunch of money spent still does not look rright. I am going to give the shop one more try. If this does not work Iwill have to shell out another 500.00. Will be forced into buying a new rear bumper cover....hope to see everybody at the upcoming show season. SM CAFARO 2006 mutant v6 convertible....

    I thought about putting a new rear on mine, but it is way more complicated than putting a front chin spoiler on. And there's no way I'm messing with my rear parking sensors.

    yeah i saw that you need to literally detach the whole back bumper. well i recently did my own rear view cam and sensor setup even added a navi via my android phone.
    Did not go to the 50th event in goshen today. Woke up at 8am and it was pouring rain. I don't know why the did not postpone to the rain date. I realise it takes a lot of work to have a show. So why not wait for better weather. From the photo's the turn out was low. There where a lot of empty spaces. Codo's to those who did attend ..... Aidenshep

    if you find two of or i find two of lets tell each other the details
    once again i have verified that my 2006 mustang v6 in windveil bluue ,auto trans and black rag top is 1 out of 170.... i have been told this would make this car rare. i hope this will be the little extra to boost my class win. we'eel see. aidenshep
    hey everybody just received .. my second confirmation on my 2006 mustang v6 conv in windveil blue. it definitely looks like they only made 170 of them... now do i put the car back to original or do i leave all my mods...any opinions will help aidenshep

    Honestly I would mod it, my V6 Appearance Package was one of at least 69 and when you figure in the options I had it was probably much lower then that. You can't even tell that it was the same car and I will be putting in a new engine soon.

    Being that it is a 2006 and V6 there isn't really a huge market out there right now for it so go ahead and mod away until your heart is content.

    thanks guys i think i will plan my mod list for next years shows
    Mustang Heaven.com -S197 Mustang Production numbers (2005-07) is one site but I don't see the 06 listing like the 05 listing. I'm not the best computer person by far, hence no pictures yet. In my year it lists my 05 V6 black convert with parchment interior and black roof, automatic at 125 produced . Of the many thousands thats all in that color combo with that motor and vinal top ? I would say you or I could say not alot in that color combo but rare tends to be in unit numbers produced. But it is interesting to know in your color, motor, top material and color, stick or automatic how many copies were made. Now if your really good -how many are there left-surviors ? :>)

    hi aidenshep here. my steed is a o6 v6 auto trans black vinyl top, dove gray cloth interior. send a note to ford and ask them what your production numbers are.. they helped me and they will even send you a note with stats. it would be great to find out how ,any survivors there are. with the show season to begin soon are you in the danbury ct location?
