1989 Mustang LX 5.0 Coupe

This is the vehicle that I have the most mixed emotions about. I've always loved these little cars, but mine has seemed to give me more headaches than I bargained for. I'll post some more pics of it soon. Here is the basic story on the car.

I was in the market for a fox body coupe and ran across this car on Corral.net. The owner was geographically close to me so I went to look at the car. It needed a little work, but I saw definite potential. As you have seen by my '52 pickup, I can see potential in most things. I think I was somewhat blinded by the fact that this was the first good lead on a coupe that I had come across. The car is an 89 model which was a plus due to the fact that it was a mass-air car, without airbags, tilt wheel, power locks and windows etc. All things aside the car wasn't in terrible shape. The previous owner had attempted to port the stock heads and had a valve job done on the heads. In a few short weeks the motor started using oil and since then here is the list.

Recently I took the Mustang to Run Through the Hills 2. To see more click the following link - RTH2
