Valance: i.e the trim piece under the bumper that, on some models (my '67), houses the backup lights and license plate.

Is it called:

a. a valance (pronounced like balance)

OR

b. a valance (pronounced like val ANTS.

What do you think? :)

While we are at it ,

Ive been told by a guy in New York that they are called ARR-nges .

Down here we call them Oranges .

I figure we should win that fight in Florida since we grow the things here .
What's your take ?

Im thinking this should be OT but I guess it does relate to Mustangs :)

Not even up for debate.
Its a dead-on rhyme for balance.
