Sad but true Geoff.
Although if you have deeper pockets you might be able to grab a HSV converted Chevy Camaro. It costs $20k more than a similar specked Mustang but still comes in under the $100k mark.
I reckon the Stangs look good and the latest models with the adjustable exhaust notes sound good too. Fit and finish seems ok, ignoring the badge that fell into my lap....LOL.
Perhaps you and I know the same bloke? Nah...doubt it.
Same thing happened to my mate. Only had 700kms on the odo when he got a nail in the rear tyre.
Ford...being the generous soles that they are don't supply a spare wheel/tyre.
You get an inflation kit instead which consists of a tyre sealing foam and compressor unit. Didn't work so ol mate waited for a tow. The tyre/wheel was full of foam which didn't seal as intended meaning a new tyre had to be fitted.
$600 for the tyre,
$200 for the tow
$150 for a replacement genuine Ford inflation kit. You know, so it can fail again next time he gets a flat.
Like I said earlier, I'm bewildered as to why anyone buys these shit boxes.
I've had a couple of rear punctures on my Harley. The first time it still had the original wire wheels so I was stuck waiting for the RACV 2 hours for the truck to arrive and as the shop had shut by then it was towed to a mates house. Next day it was picked up and taken to the shop for a new tube to be fitted. That stuffed my long weekend ride so soon after I pissed off the wire wheels and got alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.
The next rear flat was with the new wheels. Used a plug repair kit on the side of the road and was mobile again in 15 minutes. These are great but only work on tubeless tyres.
Hi KK. Seems little point in making bicycle wheels tubeless as you can put sealant, such as Slime, into the tubes and that works good.
The reason you shouldn't use Slime in the tubes of ya Harley is that at higher speeds it might distribute unevenly within the tube resulting in an unbalanced wheel,
Well the update is the car is back on the road. Problem was some kinda spring in the steering column which was shorting out the airbag circuit which resulted in the illumination of the air bag warning light....or something like that.
Let's hope there are no other issues.
Thanks perthhog & loopie. That's exactly it. I couldn't remember the name of it. Seems a relatively minor, but annoying issue so perhaps I was a bit harsh in the title of this thread.....LOL.
So ol mate is a happy man again with his new Stang. Hopefully I'll get a steer of it sooner or later. It's a good looking car and sounds pretty good too when he gives it a kick in the guts.
