Its just one of those times when you start a search with something simple like "5.0 Mustang" then go off of the videos on the right that lead to other videos. Sadly i landed on this-

‪1987 Ford Mustang GT cash for clunker engine lock up‬‏ - YouTube
:no::weeps

That video might have been posted on here at one time but wow... that's just sad. What a waste of a perfect 5.0. Shame on the person who probably bought a lame Camry with the money they got from trading it in on that BS cash for clunkers :nono::nono::nono:

Yeah...they scrap'd that motor for no good reason.

Did they drain the oil? Or just hold it at red line?

they added chemicals to the engine to make it weld, stuff like this seriously pisses me off:nono: and everyone can tip their hat to obama for this kind of destruction. y do you think that noone can find parts in a junk yard? because anything that went to the clunker program was melted millions of good parts that would help everyday americans like me and you were destroyed, so we would me "stimulated" to buy a new car. what did u think the stimulas package was:?: no matter if you were or were not for it we all took it in the a$$. i love my car and my country but one of them is headed to hell and my car runs fine. :winks

I bet they could'nt do that to my Hyundai,i already tried. Never understood that program. Liquid glass made junk yards millions. I hope they sacrificed that fox for a new stang.

what a shame...

several years ago at doug herbert's they found a dodge omni they couldn't pop.at their get togethers they tend to have a junk car that gets blown up... this omni was a champ... about 15 minutes into it, car was running strong, so they started putting small nuts and washers in the carburetor, then put a nitrous line from the fill bottle into it, and it just froze over.

It just sucks. That car had plenty of life left in it and many people would love to have that 5.0. The motor looked pretty close to stock! That car could have been donated to a racer or maybe to some kid who cant afford a fun car. But no the goverment has to blow the motor and scrap it just because its old and it dosnt get 30 mpg. And what ever you do dont search cash for clunkers on youtube lol. I saw supras, vettes, and 4.6L mustangs. :violin
