Today, I finished 2nd Place in the 2010-14 Modified Class at the 36th Annual GVMA Mustang Roundup at the George Preston Arena in Langley. Some really good cars in my class today. Since I own a 2019 Mustang Bullitt, I took some pictures of the Bullitt Class too. You can watch 4 videos of the event on this link here.

I finished 2nd Place in the 2005 to 2014 Class at the 34th Annual Shelby Mustang Show & Shine today at Hallmark Ford. It was an extremely packed event with cars squeezed in tightly. I also introduced at this show a set of Ford Mustang OEM 19" Foundry Wheels with 255/40/19 Pirelli tires so I took some updated photos. I wanted to see how the Black Wheels with bright finish highlights would look on the car and I like them so they are going to stay.
Updates as of May 26, 2019
I finished 1st Place in the 2010-14 Mustang Modified class at the 38th Annual GVMA Spring Show today at Harbourside Place in North Vancouver.

Updates as of Feb 12, 2019
A couple of quick pictures of my car before going to work today and after arriving at work to show it is my daily driver. You might notice my winter set of wheels with Snow tires on the car. During winter I swap my interior for the cloth heated seat set and install the WeatherTech floor liners. I'm sure glad my whole car is covered in Xpel Paint Protection film from Protex Vancouver.

A Christmas update to show my new OEM Ford Strut bar painted Black with Powered by Ford Logo on it.

I added Whiteline Upper Control Arm KTA141A to finish my Suspension overhaul. Drives fantastic.

It was the 32nd Annual Shelby & Mustang Show and Shine at Hallmark Ford today. Lots of cars in my category and as unlike the GVMA shows, they lump all 2005 - 2014 in the small class, instead of the 2010 - 2014 being separate and no sub class of Modified and Stock. Lots of cars that spent way more money than I did to compete with. Pictures below of cars in my class.

Updates as of July 28, 2017
I don't like Leather seats so I've changed them to brand new factory cloth ones with MCA Logo added. I've also changed the door panels to the ones with the chrome horse emblem. Under the hood of my car, I've added battery and brake fluid covers from California Pony Cars .
Updates as of June 24, 2017
I changed my rear axle back exhaust from the Ford Racing V6 Touring to the Borla Touring V6 Model 11793. I just found the Ford Racing to be a little loud for me. Some quick pictures below of the Exhaust and some more updated pictures.

First Day of Ownership March 9, 2017
I purchased this car from a car dealer in Burnaby, BC with only 30,776 kms on it. It was originally purchased from Richport Ford in Richmond, BC on November 4, 2013. It is the Mustang Club of America Edition in Grabber Blue with 6 Speed Automatic Transmission, Glass Panoramic Roof, Navigation. There were no modifications to the car and the Mustang Club of America floor mats are still covered in original factory plastic. I add the Engine Cover which I kept from my 2015 Mustang V6. All the pictures on this page, except the engine bay, are from the Dealer who advertised it for sale. The weather has not been good so I have not been unable to take any pictures myself. I will only drive this car for 3 months of the year to cover the car show season for the Greater Vancouver Mustang Association which I belong to. I plan on doing only a few mods to the car.
