yeah like you said a liter of 95 octane gazoline cost 1,35 euros so a gallon about 6 euros or 7$ if you prefert ,you know why there is only small cylinder here , the most common is 1,1 or 1,5 liter engine with about 70 HP but with a fuel economy of almost 60 mpg. And car with bigger cylinder are not free taxe for a mustang it's about 3000$ juste for having the title .I hate our governement so stupid :evil:

He's Right about that here in Europe the gasoline prices are skyhigh.. here in Holland you do's see many V8's and in other words not many Kitt's... only kitt-Scanners in other vehicles.. :oops: like mine :oops:

gas-prices:
France $ 6.89 / gallon
Netherlands $ 7.91 / gallon

Looks great! krkitt1!!

Dylan, yes it is possible to remove the airbag. You have to do that in order to remove the steering wheel. There should be 2 small holes on the side of the airbag. These are access holes that a special tool is inserted in in order to depress locking tabs that hold the airbag in. First start off by disconnecting the battery and waiting about 15-20 mins to be safe... Insert a small pick and 'feel' around with it until you feel the tabs. Depress one at a time and hold that side of the airbag up while you do the other side.

A lot of peoole just put the bulb out and drive without any airbag

you can use the stock suspension but it doesn't look good with 20 rims so it's better to lower the car

Well the hood is back at the shop being repainted. He was buffing the hood and burnt the clearcoat. I should get it back on Friday and the stripes go on Tuesday. I'm having 8" stripes put on.

Everything has to be changed except the fender. The bumpers, grilles, lights and all the brackets that go with the Shelby GT500 nose.

Ok I have to come back to the gas question again.Will putting in Premium gas ruin the engine for a standard V8 GT?Or are you just wasting money on gas thats more expensive when the car doesnt need to take it and it really only needs regular? :?

Doing my homework
