Yeah give me your address and I make sure I drop it off, lol. I was going to tint the windows and I have already got the spolier front and back in my mind and wheels are a diff, but want to wait to get the car back to primer first. STANG OUT

Well it would be closer to park it at my house since Im in KY and you will be driving by to get to KS and then coming back to KY.  But wheels would be my first change.  I got my 500s here in Lexington Ky from Docs Mustangs they were cheaper then any were else I had found and they came with center caps and lugs, everywere else make you buy all that seperate.


I would take the ball and hitch off the back and maybe a sporter hood.

okay I knew it wouldn't be to long before someone said something about that #$@ Ball hitch. I am the second onwer and the guy that had it before me was starting to slow down in life and the car was only use to pull his golf cart to teh course which was only about 3 miles down the road. Yes I want to get new rims and keep these factory rims put up incase I ever want to sell her. What do you mean by sporty hood, it is the ram air hood once again factory if I might add, lol. I was looking to make it a working hood but the car only came with 177 ponies from the floor so no a big need but I am trying to get ahold of the 2 valve intake and get a carb to try get something out of her, but it is hard being here talking about it and not at home where I can go out and do even little things to it so. The one thing that I ask is neither one of you guys said anything about that ugly vnyil ( I KNOW I CANNOT SPELL) top off of it . I know that you cannot trace it back to the car so I can take it off and it would make it look alot better and not have that extra maintance. What do you think.. oh good luck getting it in your driveway i have only got to drive it once and I have owned it for over a year and half now.STANG OUT

I would have never said anything about the hood but I couldnt tell it was ram air in the photo.   And for the top I didnt notice it either, I see a sun spot and didnt know it was vinyl top or I would have said something.

You know why cars came out with vinyl tops don't you?   I had a body man tell me that when the car was put together that sometimes they would have a inperfection on the roofs and the vinyl top was a cheaper and faster fix then sending it back to the body shop.


now thats what I was told so don't hold me too it.  LOL

Hey that sounds like a good reason and easy to believe I will have to take it off becasue it is old anyways and if something is wrong then I might put it back on but thanks for the heads up. It has the ram air but it doesn't work I will have to get all the stuff for it but I have to get some more ponies under there before I try to get that going. Hey are most spoilers just the black color or same as the car which do you think would be better?STANG OUT

Yeah I jsut got my seat in and I think it should be pretty easy I am leaving to go back to wichita in like 5 days and then I am going to start kicking it out as much as possible I want to take my motor out and sandblast the whole car and get it back to primer but I don't think I am going to have time to fix the fenders but we will see. Will 18 fit under that car? I know you said something about it but it looks like it might be to big don't know. I am also going to rip that top off and shave the tips off and paint it a solid color. One thing at a time I know but hard to do I just want to do everything at once which won't work. STANG OUT thanks bro

I would try to get all the cancer first. do you have the funds to get them done at a body shop? personally I would start getting all the nessacery parts first. quarters panals ,inner fender wells, that alone would be about 600 bucks.
