I've said it before...I'll say it again. That Stang is SICK! I'd love to put some miles on it for you. I'm just sayin...I wouldn't do it for just anybody, but I'd help you out.

He drove the car maybe 50 miles when he finished it then parked it again in 07. I bought it with no battery and covered with dust. Put in battery, filled with fuel and it fired right up! When I asked why he was getting rid of it he says "he just got bored with the car"!
Did I mention the motor has 550 horsepower and 535 foot lbs of torque!Tell me, would you get bored with that :?:


I'M WORKING ON THIS FOR US, MAYBE WE CAN SAVE A LIL DIGNITY WHILE DRIVIN OUR FORDS...

Steeda makes a direct replacement emblem for the Foxbody. Thats what I've got planned. You can get em from Jegs.

What I am prolly going to do with my Ford emblem on the front is fill it in and then have someone airbrush one on or airbrush something else in that spot.
