Survey says:

I bought a blue '81 2.3 auto Ttop many years back. The 4 banger died ... '79 pace car 302 goes in. A friend had a similar red 'stang that bit the dust. I swapped the entire interior to red ... and had it painted metallic red. I then found an 89 donor car. It donated true dual exhaust - and I bought shorty headers. Also, the 8.8 posi w/quad shocks was transplanted - as well as ground effects and taillights. Last, a T5 was swapped in for the C4.

Sadly, it has sat for several years after needing a synchro and a flex plate.
You can guess from my username where my attention lies ... '70 Stingray.

:hit:

I dont have one yet, but one day i will !

I voted for the first batch, ever since i saw a 1964 1/2 mustang i fell in love with the shape of that car and thats what i would love to own one day, not really that partial to the fastbacks tho, just doesnt quite seem right to me

"Overdraft" named herself during the 5 year restoration!
She was a basketcase!3 coates of rattlecan paint over the original colour,dinged & bogged panels & a bloody Chrysler radiator in the back seat,behind the Comaro buckets in the front! :AAHHH:
But..... she was a California car & there was very little rust.
Anyway that's history now......a little blood sweat & tears(a lot of money)
& the 5 years dissappeared in the snap of a finger when the Windsor fired up & we hit the bitchy!

73 Mach1 fitted with a 302c & based in the UK (yeah ok don't ask!)

not sure about lumping the 72's & 73's in with the Mk2/Mk3 though.

Sorry about the double post here guys, but mhrrs525 can I ask where you put the CD player? the AM radio in the dash of mine is tiny and the glovebox isn't deep enough to fit a CD... just interesterd for future spending.

I don't know if it is my favorite or not, but it did come out well. I finally completed the V/8 changeover in my daughter's 89LX. I hope you like it. (It only took a week, but I've been waiting for the photo's to be developed.)

And yes fella's that is a (gulp)G.M. alternator.

I can't call it my favorite, but it's a nice car. I finally completed the V/8 converstion of my daughter's 89LX. It turned out real nice and has plenty of power. (It only took a week to do, but I've been waiting on photo developing) I hope you enjoy it. She surely does.
