Thought I'd stop in and introduce myself!

I've own a '93 2.3L LX hatchback, that I bought back in 2004 or so, to restore. It turned into my daily driver after I found that I liked it better than my '84 Camaro. Now, after 4 years and almost no work done to it outside of maintenance and minor repairs, it's time for a little love.

I picked up a 302 from a '79 'stang, that is in working order and good condition to rebuild with premium parts (keeping only the block) and I'm gonna rebuild the T-5 with a Ford Racing kit (mostly because the spacer pins are shredded). I'm converting it from EFI to carbed (4-barrel), to simplify the machine under the hood. Hopefully, I plan to do a bit of custom exhaust work, as well (already posted a question on it.. ).

As it stands, today, the car is run down but no where near worthless. It's time to bring it back to it's original intended glory!

Yeah, as far as I know, there actually is one. Just don't know the name! There is a random meet every once in a while, but you never really know where it's gonna be, until the traffic hits.
