Thanks so far. Remember though that I would like to know if there have been any suspension mods or if ot's sitting stock. A picture without this info doesn't really do me any good for what I'm trying to find out.

John-

There are several pictures of my 1969 in my gallery... let me know if you need any specific shots, and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks guys.

70/05 Stang, Are your rear springs stock??

NorCalTroy, Is that Acapulco Blue?Is your car at stock ride height? Finally, what are your tire sizes?

Kevin B, What size tires do you have? What is the setback of your wheels?

Thanks again guys

Here is mine, sitting high in the front. 16x8 Vintage Wheel Works all around with 235 in front and 245 in rear. Suspension is all stock, but with wedge kit and and Shelby drop. I'd like the front to come down a bit. Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

My car was originally Gulfstream Aqua. About ten years ago it was repainted with a 1990 Subaru color. In pictures it looks MUCH more blue than it actually is. I'm told that if the original color and mine were side-by-side, the only difference would be the metallic flake in my paint.

My suspension is all stock. I'll post some measurements and tire sizes when I get home from work... should be around 5:30 pm or so.
