What's with missing grills?

I just bought a 97 GT (please read my "shudder" post too) and the front
grill was missing. No biggie, but every time I see a similar Mustang I
walk up to it to see what the grill looks like and EVERY TIME their
grill has been missing too! What's going on? Is there some roving gang
that swipes Mustang grills? Is there some problem with the grills that
make them fall out at highway speeds or with heavy (heheheh)
acceleration? This is a mystery to me.....
thanx

Re: What's with missing grills?

You cannot possibly be this uninformed, can you?
Pay attention.- They did not come with a grille!
They come with a big hole and a running Pony in the middle of it.

If you see one WITH a grille, it's an add on.

Re: What's with missing grills?

It would seem that I am indeed that uninformed, this is my first
venture into the world of ponies, and man is it fun =)

Sorry hun but never paid much attention to them before I bought one, I
guess I have to make up for lost time.

Actually..........................
Some 96's did come with a honeycomb grill which sat right behind the
horse emblem.
No idea as to why this was never carried over into the 97/98's though.
The part # is F6ZB-8150-AB
A billet grill looks great in the 94-98 Mustangs and is easy to install
for those that don't like the empty look.

Cause it was ugly and hard to clean?
I have the billet, put a Cobra on it instead of the Pony - love it. Hated
the big black hole.
Actually, I think it was the first mod I did to my car. One of the first
anyway.

I stand corrected =)
Yup, in the Mustang world I am a big stinkin virgin, but in the
automotive world I am not. Just did a head gasket on my other car (87
escort wagon, ok.... no jokes) and can handle most repairs myself.
That's why that weird rumble strip shudder has me stumped. I did some
pokin around here in this forum and the torque converter lockup deal
sounds like the prob. I'll try changing the tranny fluid and see what
happens.....
Glad to be on board!

I hope that you get 'er fixed, so you can go out and play without worries.
When you do get it, post it so we know!
Whereabouts in the world are you?

Greenwich, Ct is where I hang my hat, just had my car a week and I've
already found a wealth of info in this forum, thanx to all those
knowledgeable pony lovers out there.
Thanx!
