Wish it was that easy of an answer, but the owner ran off the Mustang group, Camero guys, Imports, low riders... ALL of us what a shame that because of some non disciplined trash throwers is why we got run off.

Might be getting a 91 GT, letting the owner think it over. Also might try to get my LX back instead. I regret trading my LX for a Grand Prix (its fast though lol). So tomorrow I'm going to take a more detailed look at it. Got a couple of pics and a video of the motor running. I think it needs mounts, not sure or just a tune up.

That doesn't have a cam in it. It has a miss somewhere from the looks of it. Get rid of those junk plug wires and get a set of FRPP's. You will need new fuel lines and rails eventually. Some dumb *** apparently decided to cut them apart instead of using the right tools.

new alt
MSD cap
accel wires
msd coil
chrome waterneck.......not too bad so long as the issues are easily fixed

Did not get it, has to many headaches for me to deal with right now and the owner said he will work towards getting it squared away before he trades me. So the hunt is still on for a stang.

Thought I would stop by and say Hi. I am still on the hunt for a FOX. Seems like they are harder to find and or to pricey these days. I am close to being out of the Army (medical retirement). Once I'm back home I am intent on a Mustang again, I even called the owner with my old LX to maybe get it back and they said no dice. Hope yall have a good year.

Goldilocks as named by Justin, is doing good. These pictures might catch on fire from posting in a Mustang forum LOL. Here she is though.
