what's wrong with me? as if i didnt have enough to spend money on. oh well, what can ya do? :icon_twisted:

btw, it's in 'okay' shape. its a little rough but it could definitely be made daily driver-able i think. doesnt run, i didnt even try to turn it over. he says it needs a fuel pump. we'll see this weekend...

this one's an 88. tan cloth interior. i still have the burgundy 87 as well.

yeah, its a fun car to drive, doesnt look too bad either. it belongs to a friend of mine, he helped me get the tbird loaded up ad moved after work today. he likes the fox stangs, id rather have something a little less common... the t-bird is still a fox body, that counts for something right? :D

Lucky. I like the looks of those things, not many for sale around me sadly.

id rather have something a little less common
A nice fox 5.0 isn't that common around here. It seems most of the surviving ones (rare enough this far North) are 4-cyl drop tops. I'd rather have a 5.0 stick hatchback.

mustangs in general are too common for my liking. every body wants one, everybody likes them, everybody can tell what it is from a mile away. i've got nothing against them, they just dont really do much for me. i have somewhat considered buying a notch on more than one occasion, but there's other non-mustang fox bodies i'd rather have.

I'd be happy to take one off your hands...and I'd fly down but my wings are a bit wonky right now due to some feather treatment...

Nice find anyway...if you ever want to bring one to Canada...I still don't have a passport come to think of it...

Actually before "cheap little car syndrome" started knocking off the Tempos I would get burned on guessing one from the other from time to time. Especially when the are tightly packed in a JY :icon_twisted:

I have hemmed and hawed back and forth between a 85/86 fox, 94-95 SN-95, 05-10 S197, and even a '11 Challenger for a "fun" car. Right now I am stuck on a 90-91 turbo DSM like what I had in college. They are something that are fun, neat and you rarely see anymore. :D
