(No longer own)

Welcome to my current project.

This car was my moms but my grandparents wanted me to fix it up. So I started to work on it here and there then it happen. I was bit by the bug. I pulled it into my garage and started to tear it apart. I put a new dash cover on it and put the tach on it too. I bought the stereo stuff too. My origanal plan was to put a 351w in her and drag race her. I then changed my mind to building up the stock motor which is a 2.3L inline 4. But I kept on the first plan. Bought a 351w from someone for 450 bucks. Then I bought a rebuild kit.
 
I ended up quiting my job and the build was put on hold. I decide to build the stock motor. Well then I started to look for parts for that motor and found a lot of them to be surprised. I started to add up the prices for the parts and well it was cheaper to build it then the 351.

Well I'm starting college in Janaury so my car should be going by next fall hopefully. I am staying with the 351w swap. So check back once in awhile to see what I'm up too.
 Oh by the way Im going to school for automotive tech, autobody tech, Diesel tech and Diesel emphiys.  So yeah I'm gonna be busy lol.

Well I have been in school for awhile now and my car runs but it dies. I bought a magnaflow converter and a import muffler from advance auto parts. Yes I know why the import muffler? Well It's cheap and I have a 4 popper so it would blend in.

Well I have been out of school for awhile but its soon to start again. I can't wait for school to start because I'm gonna be staring what I'm gonna be doing for the rest of my life. Diesel tech.
 
(8/22/08)
I start school next week. Tuesday to be exact. I have a feeling I'm gonna love it. Plus maybe after Im done with school I can build up my 351w and you won't have to hear about me bitch and whine lol.

Hey folks, I was wondering if someone out there with an 88-93 Fox convertible could do me a favor.  I am looking for a picture of the of the ‘A’ pillar post window weather strip showing the weather strip and inside trim molding (the molding on the inside of the pillar post) and another detail picture of where the pillar post molding meets the door seal molding.  I am redoing this and need an example – my car was repaired long before I purchased it and they kind of did a ‘custom’ job on this area.  I want it to be right this time.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks,
