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.
