Now that looks good I like how you had the plate done to match

Tag and ins it's a street car, how it gets there does it really matter?

Nobody's perfect but if u drive a ford your darn close.

Looks good. I'm curious,what headers are you using, did you have to use k member spacers to get the motor so low and are you running a mid plate? I'm starting to mock up my motor tomorrow and looking for any input I can get.

80 Fairmont wagon, 528, Blue Thunder heads on E-85. Just a brutal street car

Yes I lowered the K-member 1 1/2", Im using the Hooker super comp headers, they fit very good with the UPR tubular K-memeber, My mid plate is a home made design, it ties into the frame rail like a normal mid plate (weld and bolt) would but it bolts to the ears of the C-6 instead of between the motor and trans, We did this with my brothers 66 fastback mustang and it works very well, runs mid 9's on motor with no issues
