This Month's 2KOOL FEATURE RIDE comes from one of our local Mustang Enthusiasts, Darren McFarlane. We've been keep'n an eye on this beautifully detailed 2000 GT for a few years now, and can honestly say, it's our personal fav silver 99+ GT!

Darren and his father have put a ton of time and effort in on this project, and it's paying off with numerous awards to now show for their efforts. What you won't see on this GT is any gaudy wings, tacky paint, or over-exagerated 'rice' inspired body kits. Darren's sweet ride, is clean, exceptionally well detailed, and most of all FAST! It sounds pretty horny to boot!

We wish Darren continued success with this project, and we'll certainly be turning the eye's of 5.0 Mustang and Muscle Mustang & Fast Fords on to this sweet ride. It's certainly deserving of some National Feature article attention.

Kudos on a great Job Darren!

The car is a father and son project that has turned out to be my dream car, and it is still developing. We started at the suspension/aesthetics, and then went to power, then entertainment, and now back to aesthetics and power. I would like to thank all of the firms that have provided me with excellent service as we have pursued attention to detail. I would also like to thank my father Dale McFarlane, for all of his hard work on the car as well.
