So..... I bought a new car. Sorry for cellphone pics, too excited to take out the good camera.



Guess....left or right?

Right.









Getting her home...


Getting inspected...


On the road under my name! And at a classic car show from yesterday!







:D

It's a 1993 Mustang GT if you haven't fully realized it yet. Just bought her 2 days ago!

So there's obviously some mods done, but I couldn't pass up on the price and mileage.

It's been repainted from original burgundy (no signs of accidents or frame damage). Hood is a 3" fiberglass cowl, has flowmaster catback exhaust, 2 brand new cats/o2 sensors/h-pipe, 3.55 gears, lowered (not sure on what yet, but rides very nice), msd ignition, clutch cable firewall adjustment, ford racing plug wires, a/c delete, and an alpine alarm system. Power windows, locks work. And a sunroof! Oh and LEATHER seats!

For the price I paid, there's obviously a bunch of stupid little odds and ends I'm going to have to fix. I didn't expect a perfect car lol

The escort is now strictly a winter beater. This baby will be stored in the winter for obvious reasons.

Very nice. I think I like the LX trunk models the best, but still a nice car. Ford Racing makes some very nice products for that car.

Who's 5.0 is in the garage??

probably sat off the road too long and had to be inspected before it was road legal. The condition of the car doesn't exactly scream "daily driven"

thanks guys! yeah i'm really happy with it... after some maintenance lol.

turbo - i bought it off a guy who buys/sells/breathes mustangs. the black vert he's also selling. there's a 4 eyed fox beside that one with 850hp (with 200 shot of nos, 650hp N/A) that runs mid-high 8's. and the mach 1 is his as well lol. yea i've always loved the gt's because of the kit, the trunk models (notch's) i only liked because you can see the exhaust better.

finn - sure, if you have $30 grand i believe he wanted for it

mintegt - you have a 5.0 too?? how come i didnt see it! lol

1loud92 - yeah me too, so i finally got one haha

red97lx/silverton - yeah it was towed home because of insurance reasons. since the car is older than 15 years, my insurance company wouldn't give me insurance unless i gave them the safety/inspection certificate #. and i couldn't get a temporary permit from the DMV because i couldn't get insurance. so my only option was to tow it, quite gay.

and yes, she will be my DD for the summer only. i'm glad she doesn't scream "DD" even though she will be haha

haha thanks again guys.

yea dan i'm sure u didnt show me. pretty sure. lol. nice man, my grandma had a beige/pink 86 hatch with like 80k original too, but then she sold it without telling me.

josh - boost is definitely in the future, for now its all maintenance. s/c kits are really cheap for this beast, have seen a few already for about $1000

well i ended up selling the mustang, some problems occurred that i didn't anticipate when i bought the car. i actually sold the car for more than i paid too, so no loss, just lots of fun. it was like renting a car and beating on it then returning it and not paying a dime (except for the gas).


ahhhh things are back to normal, a properly running rust-free escort. good to be back lol
