FIRST OF ALL, I KNOW THE BLUE UNDER THE HOOD DOESNT MATCH YET, BUT THE CAR IS SCHEDUALED FOR PAINT SOON. I THINK A NICE COAT OF VISTA BLUE WILL MAKE EVERYTHING FLOW BETTER. What do you think of that color combo, let me know.
Not to mention that my wife and I are in the process of buying a house, so the car might be on the back burner for a few years.
My 1996 "Odd Ball" GT. My friends and I say it is an "Odd Ball" becasue of its lack of options. The VIN shows it as a GT, yet it is missing many stock options. While she came with the standard 8.8 rear, 3.27 gears, T-45 transmission, 4.6L SOHC 2 valve engine, and so on, it is missing a lot of standard options. For example, She is missing fog lights, and rear defrost. also, she has seats from a V6, (not much side bolster), rubber non leather steering wheel, non leather shift knob. Maybe its just me, but I dont believe you could find them like that on the lot in 1996. Who knows, if you know any info about this please let me know.
I bought my Mustang back in 2001 just after I graduated high school. She was bone stock, with 64,000 miles. I had always wanted a V8 Mustang, and I finally had my dream come true.
Being completly stock I knew I had a long way to go, and it has been a blast.

As you can see in that last picture, I am in the process of an engine rebuild.
Some pictures of the car after its first drive with the new motor, and a much needed clean.
Obviously still missing some stuff like the hood and a lot of polish, but she is close.
I hope you enjoy the site, I have pictures of the rebuild on the following pages.
First start of the new motor!!!
One of the first dyno runs. still needs a lot of work.
Please feel free to rank my Mustang, and I will gladly return the favor. Keep in mind I built, (am building) this car for speed on an N/A motor, on a road corse and auto cross, not for show. I just like the sleeper look. Maybe some day I will finally get a new paint job or something, we'll see... please leave a vote on the poll too.
