Wow, looks nice. My first car was an 88 Mustang. I bought it for $500 bucks and it lasted me about a year. :-)

wth that set-up as pictured, car was 3100 lbs and went 11.90's @114mph on motor. thats wth a built 4.6 SOHC, 4 speed Tremec manual trans and a 4.56 rear gear.

cars been in Va Beach for over a year now getting the work done, I told Jason "no rush" as Im having to-much fun wth my boat :mrgreen:

I dont miss racing so much anymore, wth racing gas at $12.00 a gallon and races all over the east coast(I run a circuit) travel expenses can run-up to $500.00 on a 3 day weekend for me and that was when regular gas was under $2.00 a gallon :shock:

new combo should run 10.50's @130 on motor and hoping for 9.30's @150mph wth a 250 shot of Nytrous. new set-up will have @150 more HP on motor wth a C-4 automatic wth trans brake and a 5500 stahl convertor and @200lbs less weight :D

soooo. untill then...you guys are stuck wth me :lol:

I run several different sancutions in either heads-up or bracket style racing, I've won 2 events, runner-up'd at 3 and have had a bunch of #1 qualifiers aswell. the car has gotten me alot of notoriety over the years as I was one of the first to start racing and modding the 4.6 engines (due to some insider info from a friend who worked for Ford) :wink:
