My Other Toy
I've owned her since '97 and she's gone from Mild to Wild but she's still a work in progress. I nicknamed her "10"; you can draw your own conclusions .

Sweet car... like a very clean fox body stang (dont see too many nice ones anymore), sounds nice too. What kind of set up you got.... 347?... N/A, FI or nitrous?
I had a 92 LX 5.0 hatch, just a few bolt ons (this was back in 95), it went 13.90's@99-100 on regular radials. Went to a 94 Cobra after that then I got hooked on Vettes.... 1992 Coupe, 1994 Coupe, 1996 Grand Sport Coupe (this car went 10.90's @127+ with heads/cam and a 150 shot on a drag radial), currently have a 2002 Z06 with a couple of bolt ons (headers, intake and tune) best ET is firstname.lastname@example.org

Geezus man, 93....I feel like an old timer...these are the cars I grew up with and got most all of my skills with. Had a 79' capri rs 302 stick, was a 351w with "dooe" heads (70' 4v). Got a 9" rear and in 86 they come out w/ the 8.8 go figure. Anyway got a new 86 gt in august, by christmas I was working on cooling issues w/ my 460 bb and c-6 set-up (serpentine belt w/ a/c and all) I laugh because it snowed in new orleans that year and the car was hot All this was under the stock hood using a 83 stang scoop only. Parked at the lake w/ a cheater jetted for 175 u would never know what u were getting into, hell, the chevy guys NEVER EVEN knew what they were looking at. Anyway, it got so bad w/ people showing up w/ 79' stangs and stolen parts to make them look like 93s. I don't care but all the crap and trouble that follow some of those guys dictated and change for me. I went by "Prof5.0" and next thing u know I drive a 93 formula w/ lt1 and never looked back. Ist vette I ever owned was a 96 and right away I put my bird motor (402LT1) and got 6 9sec passes in a row on a motor that went a best of 10.29 in the bird. U know I never looked back. Got a chance to drive a '92 GT recently, they have faults but damn I do miss those cars...had bet I had 15 of 'em Had to get rid of all 3 stangs to swing the bird in 93, looking back I kick myself for not keeping my 79 Capri that I miss more than all of them, from the 73 mach 1 to the 86GT. Take good care of that car...and boy if we had the stuff in the 80s that they make for these cars now

I'm a huge fan of the foxbody's. I'm looking into a '88-91 ssp lx coupe. My dad had a '91 lx a couple years back and he regrets selling it.
