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. \"smile\"
 
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.
 
Sponsored by Anvil Power Stryke Coatings, awesome work on everything for your Mustang. Cadmium plate brake rotors and bolts, spray on internal engine lubrication, aluminum ceramic exhaust coatings, thermal barrier coatings, and ofcourse powdercoat.
