New Illinois Owner Here

Hello Everyone,
I'm happy to let you know earlier this month I purchased 8R01C153469 from Mosesatm. This is my first Mustang so I'll probably have questions occasionally.

Do we have any members that live in the Chicago area?

-Brian

Brian,
When do you get the car?

Thank you for the warm welcome! Jon, thank you for sharing the photo. Arlie, it should arrive around Christmas (how appropriate).

Once I have the car I'll be sure to take some photos, especially once Spring hits.

Thank you! She definitely does, Wednesday it's supposed to get up to about 37 degrees, I hope to give her a quick wash in the driveway

Any thoughts on the risk of me cracking the glass if I wash it?

Should not be a problem. Just let the car sit outside for a little while if you have had it in a heated garage. Then wash it with cold water not hot.

Congrats Brian! I'm down in Decatur. Maybe we'll run into each other at a show in the summer. There's a real nice show in Bourbonnais usually the 1st week of Aug I try to make. Welcome aboard!
