Ever wonder what areas of concern you should be addressing on your Mustang before the nice weather hits and “spirited” driving becomes the norm? We’ve put together a quick checklist of areas you will want to give some love before racking up the miles on your Mustang.
What’s the point of having the Cobra look without the performance to back it up? Stage 3 is less about looks and all about sheer power.
