I posted in the 5.0 Lounge too.

Here is some info about my cars. BTW, most of this was done when I made real money (now I am a teacher), so mods come more slowly now...:rolleyes:

Below is my butt-kick'n 1987 LX 5.0 Ford Mustang. This car has been a labor of love for many years and is mainly a car show participant/street cruiser; it is always evolving into something more radical. Right now I guess you could say that it is a "street" Street Renegade car with road race flavor (strange mix huh?). This car has many modifications and I am only listing some here. I'll just say that I have over $50,000 invested in my baby and I keep pouring more labor and money into it! Just one thing though, my father and I did ALL the work on this car ourselves, and we have enough of a machine shop in our garage that there is a lot of one-off custom fabricated parts on this car. If you would like to know more, just e-mail me at: [email protected]

**Look for the car in 5.0 Mustangs and Super Fords magazine (August 2005 issue) and Mustang Enthusiast magazine (June 2005 issue). It won Editors Choice at the NMRA Ford All-Star Nationals (Columbus 2003), and at the NMRA World Finals at Bowling Green (2004) two feature shoots were done on it!!!!**

Below is my silver 2000 Ford Lightining. This baby is really bad, and made a great toy. I estimate that it now has at least 425-450 rwhp (around 525-550 hp flywheel [23% driveline loss]) with bolt-on parts. It now has a custom exhaust, bigger MAF, a custom PSP chip, and more boost to name a few of the mods.
