5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
Project Vapor Trail Update - Just Can’t Stop
With all the great gear available for the S197, it’s tough to leave PVT alone
Horse Sense: Despite my best efforts not to lust after more gear, there are just a few carbon-fiber lower cladding pieces that would round out PVT’s look.
Longtime readers will know my adage about project cars, but if you are just joining the 5.0&SF party, it’s important that you know the deal. You can never truly “finish” a project car. It just doesn’t happen. The only time you finish a project car is the day you sell it. That’s because it’s just too much fun to leave them alone, even if they are really finished by most measures.
As I recently wrote in my column, I was really having a hard time with this internal struggle because PVT has to share my affections with Fox 500 these days. As such, I’ve been trying to sneak in those last few mods before I totally shift gears into revamping the Fox 500’s interior. I actually managed to get most of them taken care of before the Fox arrived, but a few were added guiltily as I looked over the Fox.
Of course, I didn’t feel that guilty, because the aftermarket for the S197 has become so robust that there are simply parts that are too cool to ignore. Nowhere is that more true than in the instance of the Shelby GT500. So, here’s the latest update on PVT. Some of this gear is available for any S197, while some is GT500-specific, but all of it is pretty cool, so check it out.
