JonR2006 Build - Officially Over

I have waited to post this for a few reasons....either way, I'm another statistic, which I hate...

I had to drive my mustang for a few days due to my daily driver needing a new brake line. The last day I drove my mustang it was nasty out, pouring rain, cold (near freezing), salt on the road, etc...needless to say, I hydroplaned on the highway in rush hour traffic going maybe 60 mph and could not save it.

God was with me and those around me as I was not injured nor did I hit anyone else or injure anyone else. It was a miracle I didn't anyone else being rush hour traffic on major highway here in suburban STL. I do have another project in the works but I may wait to post anything on that until it's closer to being finished.. @SoCal2V knows what I'm doing.

I probably will not be on here as much but I won't completely leave. I like this forum a lot. I wish it was more active but we can thank the stupid facebook groups and instagram for that.

Holy crap dude! Thatís insane. All that time and effort comes to an end just like that. Iím really sorry to hear this and Iím happy that youíre alright. Is the new project going to be using parts from this car or are we going to see you parting this one out soon?

Yeah, it took a little to sink in. I was pretty bummed out the few days after. Seeing what I'll get from insurance and my what I plan to do has softened the blow. It won't be a complete waste of money (time yes, but not money).

I will attempt to be using most of the parts (drive train, wiring harness, ECM etc). Not sure on fuel setup yet...Roll bar is a complete waste but I'll try to sell that.

May as well post your new build(s) in here once they get off the ground. It's slow enough that I don't think mods or whoever will mind. Too bad you couldn't wait a little while to buy my car haha.
