WITHDRAWLS!!!

Ok, so the story goes I had a big block 86 Coupe I along with my best friend Casey (8liter here) put a lot of work into. I was frustrated with the car after some things didnt go my way and against Casey's advice traded it for a 90 GT. I ended up getting a car that was cobbled together, needed quite a bit of work and still is not finished. The good news is the car should be out of the shop and back in my position in early July. NOW.. I haev been without a running driving car for about a year now. I am going through withdrawls. Hindsight being what it is I should have never traded the big block car. I REALLY want to get back into a big block car again. I dont plan on trading the GT because it will be a good solid driver once I get it back but GAWD I NEED A BIG BLOCK CAR AGAIN!!!

I think I am going to try and find a light crash 05+ V6 car. As long as the frame isnt bent I can replace all the front sheetmetal. Do a Mini tubbed, Big block carbed 05+, I think it would be pretty sweet.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

What I've learned is anything is possible.. It only takes Money..

That interior is full of electronics..

This is my wife's 5.0 when I brought it from the auction. It had less then 50K miles.. I paid $2000.00 for it.



When it was finished.. It cost another $1500 so a total of $3500 for a car with a 5.0....





I did some of the work myself.. The deal here is the car didn't look that bad when I got it.. You will be susprized at the cost of some stuff.. I was.. Don't get me wrong it's a nice car.. I've added the pony's on the side fender so it looks like a 6cly and added lower "Mustang" side stripes since that picture.

Laters!

I am currently working on getting myself out from under credit card debt. Hopefully that will be taken care of this year. THIS TIME NEXT YEAR AT THE LATEST!!! Then I'll buy a truck of some type for hauling / towing the car and start on my car project then. I just hate spending all of my extra cash on these damn credit card bills now when I need to be spending it on toys.
