Eric T's 99 GT Update
(Stang was parked)

Here's an update to my mustang that was featured at url:

Current mods: Flowmaster 2-chamber mufflers
Cobra front end
Steeda shifter handle
MustangWorld bumper inserts

I had the cobra bumper put on because a careless landscaper scratched and
dented the front bumper of my car with his lawnmower while I was eating
lunch a few months ago. The bumpers were the same price, so I bought the
fog lights and had the 99-cobra bumper put on.

Well, if it wasn't Murphy's Law. Except this time it was 10 times the damage and it kills me to look at my car. I was parked in my parking space at work and was hit real hard on the rear end of the driver's side and scraped all the way to the front destroying every panel on that side including my cobra bumper. My mustang was knocked out of it's spot by 5 feet and up on the curb.

Ouch, that's a bummer man - MW
