    New Member from Birmingham

    Afternoon All

    Just to introduce myself I'm a athlete and coach from Birmingham who also has a obsession with everything to do with cars . I'm now delighted to finally be a member of the Mustang Owners Club and own a 2008 Gt California Special Convertible which is amazing . I have been a huge fan of mustangs ever since I started to walk and I now a proud owner of this amazing automotive icon .

    I plan to bring this care to showroom condition starting with a complete repaint then re chroming of the wheels ready for ford fair next year . Once I'm happy with the standard of this mustang I will then be looking to purchase a Shelby in the future or at least dream about it .


    I'm sure I will see many of you next year and look forward to hearing your tips and stories along the way .

    Thanks All

      Wow Cali Special, great voice of car, love the retro styling abs seats in these!! Congratulations on the purchase.
      On a side note, I have heard that re-chrominance wheels isn’t easy. It would be great for you to keep us updated on how that goes tho. I have previously recommended JP
      Alloys in Cannock who are a very professional outfit but they cannot re-chrome.

            Welcome to the club. I do like a CS, I used to have a V6 Cali clone. I could be tempted into buying a white one at sometime in the future.
            Have fun.

              yeah, I love all colour CS’s but white would be mu choice. I did look at one a few years back, chap in kings win ford was selling on behalf of his brother, was an ex-Dubai car. It wasn’t in the best condition though. Apparently it went to Sweden in the end.

                    Are the wheels actually chrome, or polished aluminium? They came with polished wheels as standard, so a simple refurb and polish might sort them out. If chrome they could be aftermarket wheels, and it maybe cheaper to buy new ones

                      they came with polished alloy or chrome option, these are genuine, Nick NMH wheels are chrome also.

                        You, my friend, are a very lucky guy then.
