    Ran the 'stang in its first autocross today and also became a SCCA member. Everyone at the autox has been to quite a few auto-x's before, and I think me and maybe one other car was the first time racing. Therefore my times were terrible, but I had a great time and hope to go to another auto-x this month.

    I'd post all the pictures, but I'm too lazy so here's the directory of them all. http://crew.hondagallery.com/prowler/9103autox/
    Here's a few of my favorites:

    Two other Mustangs were there. An older guy driving a 35th edition GT and someone else driving a 89 or so GT 5.0L vortech supercharged, 3.55 gears, new intake manifold, headers, x pipe, flowmasters, lowered, and a shortshifter. Basically, the future of my car when i get enough money.

    And three vettes. The red one in a video i'll post is very very quick. The stingray and yellow vette weren't all that great. similiar times to what i was running.

    Finally, the TT cars. 300zx and Stealth. Both were doing quite well.

    Yeah, it's a Merkur. Fairly quick, too. The best times were around 41 seconds with the average street cars doing 45-50. My best was a 48 something. I didn't stay to see all the results printed. The one Porsche in my class I beat.
