I've been a member for a few years now and it's time we start a build thread. We bought this s197 off of eBay back in 2009. It had 28k miles and was very much bone stock. We had it delivered from Arizona and picked it up in Gretna, LA. I took these pictures [taken with an old Blackberry, sorry for the grainy pictures] when we first laid eyes on her: On the ride home, my wife complained that it was "beeping at her" and seemed kinda sluggish. She had my '95 GT to compare it to and said it was slower than that. We decided to stop by our friend Benjy's shop on the way home to have him check it out. He determined there was an issue with the Charge Motion system and suggested we bring it back during business hours. While we were there, she expressed her interest in the black Steeda wheels mounted on a black S197 in the shop. As luck would have it, they were for sale. She bought them on the spot! Not bad for only being a 'stangbanger for 4 hours at this point!! It kinda looked funny with the 305/45/18 Nitto drag radials outback: We finally got it home: We took the next few days to clean it up and become better acquainted. She decided early on that it wasn't quite loud enough for her liking and began to pour over videos on YouTube in search of "the perfect exhaust note"
