yeah or nah??

I never thought I would be in this situation. I am driving in my '96 Mustang GT with the intention of buying another Mustang, not to replace it but as a, well, stable mate if you will. The 95 is a black GT like my car, (black exterior with black cloth interior and a 5-speed manual). but that is where the similarities end. The 94-95 Mustang GT's had a different motor than my 4.6L 281ci V8. they had the tried-and true 5.0L 302ci V8. and what a difference they are. My car, with a few mods, such as cold air intake, cat back and a few suspension tweaks just doesn't have the 'grunt' that the five-oh does. I am still trying to decide whether or not to buy the 95 GT as it will need a lot of cosmetic work. The body has a lot of dents and panels that will need to be replaced. The drivetrain on the other hand is stock and running just perfectly smooth. The car as a weird aftermarket sunroof which doesn't seem to work that well. The interior needs to be redone as the radio is some shitty aftermarket cd player with a missing head unit, the power seats don't work, and overall just worn. But is is a great start. The asking price was 2,800, but i was able to bring it down to 2,000. Should i go ahead and do it, get the car and start a new project? wish i could just make up my mind

has it been that long?

I guess it has been too long since i have typed something up, but here it goes. Ok so 40+ hour weeks mean i haven't had a whole lot of time for the stang but...have been putting new parts on and have a few big ones coming up in the future.

Since I last wrote I have installed:
LRS Mass-backed main carpet section in Black
MAC Pro-Dump cat back exhaust (turndowns right before rear axle)
Maximum Motorsports clutch quadrant/firewall adjuster/cable
LRS Cobra headlamps with Euro Yellow lens decal

But wait...there's more...
So tune in next time, cuz the big mods are coming soon!
