I posted this on the Introduction board but was told I should probably put it here, too.
My ride is a 1978 Mustang II running a 1991 5.0L H.O. with dual quads on a Weiand 289 hi-rise tunnel-ram.
When I first got this car it had no engine, no transmission, and it was white. I installed the engine and tranny, ported the heads, fly-cut the pistons, built the throttle linkage and tuned the carbs, and did all the bodywork and paint including building the custom rear spoiler and hanging the side pipes.
Channeled 1988 Mustang LX Spoiler
Vintage Hilborn-style scoop
1977 King Cobra hatch louvers
John Deere Blitz Black (satin finish) paint with OEM gloss white stripes
Custom Jolly Roger grill ornament and door locks
PERFORMANCE & HANDLING:
8” rear end with 3.50 limited-slip
245/50R15's on Turbine wheels
Rear seat delete, aluminum intake, custom bumpers
Total build cost to date: $2,437
Est. HP: 389 @6300 rpm
All work done by owner except:

Here's the plumbing for the side pipes. These are Corvette 2.5" glass packs (I believe; they were advertised as such at the swap meet where I found them.) The II is so short that I had to cut the pipes, then run flex tubing back from the collectors, then run it forward again to a hard 90 welded onto each pipe. Kinda weird but I REALLY wanted side pipes with glass packs and it sounds KILLER. Besides, the pipes were only $50 at a swap meet.
And here's me chillin' on the hood last spring, before the side pipes went on.
