Oh no somebody stole your 2 front center caps and relpaced your white letters with blue stuff!!!!!

Lol so how long does a set of tires last on that, 800miles? 400 of it with the front tires not moving.

Well Jeff, that's a sexy Fox. I am curious though, what was up with your old coil springs?

Want to know a sure fire way to make those front bushings and ball joints last a really long time? Buy some new control arms like me =). I bought brand new FMS control arms (both for 120 dollars) about 10 years ago..... and they are still waiting for their moment.

Wow, that's a big change.

Shamefully, mine still has the OEM springs and shocks on the rear (quads too).

What ring and pinion do you have in it again?

Is it factory still? Im guessing so if you aren't sure what it is. It's either a 2.73 or a 3.08 ratio. I've always just read the tag.

Wait...... yours has a T5 right? If it has an AOD it would be a 2.73 or 3.27 ratio.

and ill have to try to get a video of my friends 1991 gt at a burn out contest at a car show we put on. I took 2 old 12s off of my festiva and we drilled the rims out for the mustang, talk about a nice smoke cloud

headgasket=1. me=0


Raped the headgasket a couple nights ago. got at it today and had her tore down and the gasket out in a little over half hour. working on a new clean engine is so nice.
Gotta wait till tomorrow morning to get the gasket, then it will be put in and will be running again tomorrow. then shes getting a for sale sign in the window.
