    Welcome to my profile! I'm new to the mustang world. I recently bought a 1989 5.0L GT Hatchback. It's in decent shape. Needs a little lovin', but I'm slowly going to work on that. I want to do many, many things to it...

    Firstly I would like to rebuild a motor. 302 block, bore it out a little for bigger performance pistons, cam, crank, valve train, heads.. the whole sha-bang! I'm not really sure where to start lookin for parts so im probably gonna be asking alot of questions on here, you might think they are dumb questions, but hey I'm not big on rebuilding motors.
    Besides the motor.. I would like to paint it (black or charcoal grey), re-upholster the interior(black), maybe a role cage, change the lugs from 4 to 5 and get some cobra style wheels, lower it(a little) with some decent performance suspension, & much more I'm sure that I'll think of doing later.
    It's not gonna happen over night, that I know. I don't have a ton of money so its going to probably take a few years.
