Question How can I tell a REAL lightning from a.....

Poser?? I saw a black ford the other day, it had the lightning badges on the side and the SVT emblem on the left rear bottom of the tailgate, but something was missing. I just don't know what.It was filthy dirty, had a cheap looking tonneau cover with a million snaps all around it, and the 2 tailpipes out the right side were all rusty. The mufflers were extremely quiet, as was the engine, ( no supercharger whine). Is there anything special I should look for if I see it again?....Just curious, thanks.

Lets see if I can get it all. A Lightning will have a bumper than goes from grill down with two fog lights. Tail pipes will come out the passenger side infront of the rear wheels. Will have a body kit, and 18 inch rims (unless they upgrade). Lets see, must be standard cab, and the tires will always be smoking

Maybe you saw a flareside?

Oh and altezza rear lights for 01-02 and the special 3rd brake light.
