Title To Come — This car was what most would consider a piece of junk when my brother gave it to me, now after doing alot of rebuilding it is slowly coming together. Just have to drop in a bigger engine and tweek the drivetrain and it will ready to rock, just have to give it a new color.

Pros: The look on that guys face driving the Camry, trying to figure out what just blew his doors off.

Cons: Nope, none

Awesome — It is an awesome car even with the inline six. But at that moment its torn apart and is getting ready to have HO EFI 302 V8 put into it. Also any fox body part will fit on it. It has a 1993 convertible mustang GT steering rack and pinon and sway bar with quick ratio steering. It has the 1986 ten hole aluminum rims. The 302 I am putting in has had alot of mods done to it. I have the AC and smog elminated with elminator pulleys from Ford Racing. I am running MAC equal length shorty headers to 2.5 inch off road X-pipe running dual Dynomax Bullet racing mufflers. The wiring harness is from RJM Injection Technologies with the EGR elminator for the computer pre-installed. I highly recomend their products. Also, I am running GT40 intake with half inch spacer and reduced heat with the EGR ports blocked off. I am still trying to finish it and I cant wait to drive it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Low maintence, very light weight, very interchangeable with any fox body ford, great handling

Cons: NONE
