Talking My new 1993 Calypso Green LX 5.0

Some of you guys might remember my 92 GT (pictured in my sig).......well I traded it and I got a more solid Mustang to build off of. I know how much we all love pictures around here, so here are some of "Lucy the Leprechaun" lol Dont know if that name will stick or not. The cars are really NOT that clean (mainly the 08) just took these when I got off work and had to go to class.















The guy before me also included all the speaker system gear he had. I am not much for premium sound, but if I can get something for free why not? Its a whole Sony Xplod kit w/ 2-12"subs and a 1200 W amp.




Really clean interior as well, with Mustang seats from a 1997 I believe.






Motor from a 1992 GT







Brand new BBK equal headers



Brand new radiator and fan




Little video of me starting it up w/ walk around. Decent quality

Great looking fox neighbor!

So which one would win in the 1/4 - the fox or S197?

haha thanks fellow Michigander!

Dude I have no clue. I really have not done any motor work to the S197. The only thing that would help was my true duals w/ x pipe (like a few hp). I have never drag raced yet or dyno'd yet. lol The seat of the pants feel is the Fox for sure, but the sixxer feels quick sometimes too

thanks! I have always loved your SSP Fox too! It takes me back in time imagining getting pulled over by that beast in the 80's lol

Looks good, I've got those exact same seats! Someone had put them in my donor car so I used them.
