My God, what have I done?

2009 P71. Known back in the day as the other answer. 140K. Headlight needs readjusted. 

Same as it ever was.

OOOOOooo.  Spiffy!

I'm guessing that's not the original paint?

It is in most places, shockingly.

It was an old joke on the older version of the forums. I think there was a third car in the trifecta... E36 M3? It's been a long time.

The old Trifecta was:

Miata: 2 seat racer

E30: 4 seat racer

P71: 5 seat racer

 

The old Pentaverate also added:

Chevy Astro for 7 seater and light tow vehicle

Jeep XJ for offroad fun.

Whoa, I like that color on that car.

Now it just needs some 5-spoke wheels.

What have you done? Clearly, you have embraced your inner Canadian. All those P71s, like all the W-body 9C1s and police Chargers, were built up here. Now go find some real maple syrup, eh?

Near where I grew up in Ohio makes some of the best maple syrup around. We're close enough to Lake Erie, so that counts. Oh ya.

Those work too. I like them in silver, but I also like them with the centers painted black.

I have a set on my car:

Bullitt wheels are still an option though.

I mean, it's no B-body Caprice or PPV but it'll do in a pinch.

Bullitt Wheels FTW.

I lost way too much knuckle skin on the BBS-type wheels back in the olden days. Can't even look at them without bleeding.

For wheels, I've added "Mustang wheels" to my daily FB/Craigslist search.

That's a nice color, it's a refreshing change from the usual black or white (or black and white.)

the anti P71 arguement into the trifecta goes back years.. I will not give up.

also.. Jordan.. your new car is a nice color. it needs 100% more nitrous.

 

The Xj, E30 and Miata were the trifecta apparently.

It's so weird reading an old thread like that and seeing familiar avatars with slightly different names. laugh
