Sad but I've put more miles on it this year than any other year I've owned it.

I had some medical issues and put over 10,000 miles on it since Oct mostly going back and forth from here to Salt Lake, about a 500 mile round trip.



The drivers seat has a tear in it and is wearing pretty thin. My son-in-law has been talking about a nice Katzkin leather interior, that's what the OEs are using. He said he can perfectly match the OE leather interior.

I took that picture while I was there Saturday upgrading the amp for my sub, the new JL Audio kicks a$$.

The 6-volt systems, not so much.

Rubiranch, Just looking at the tire pic in this post tells me you have a nice Foxbody stang! Them phone dial rims are pretty clean!
Im a member of a few mustang forums and never tire of somebody saying how much they like their mustang because I love them all as well!
I might be a little bit bias tho as my last name is Ford and I have a Built Ford tough Tattoo on my back!,and only drive Fords!lol

I think my daughters Nissan Mirano had a started button.

And I agree about the 6-volt.

24v is next.

thanks Wingman

Its the perfect car for me.

It's really economical and I can get around someone on a two lane HWY when I need to.

My last names not Ford and no tattoos but I have been acused of my blood being blue.

Then I bought a 89 5.0 GT convertible for 500 bux planning on robbing the drive train out of it for the first.
But when I got home with the vert I fell in love with it and decided to sell the 90 4 cylinder car. I got 650 from the first kid to answer my craigslist ad.
Last winter times got tuff and decided to sell the Vert and posted it for sale for 1500 or best and had about 30 people burning up my puter and phone and sold it for exactly what I was asking.
Had I known that there was such a demand for the Fox body mustang I could have probably asked 2500 or best for the car.
Ive probably owned more than 20 Foxbody mustangs in my lifetime and I must be gettin old and let life in the Mustang world slip me by a bit because I didint realize that clean Fox body mustangs are getting harder to find and the prices they are demanding are crazy!
Rubiranch, Ive seen pics of your stang in other post and its in pretty decent shape, So keep that in mind if and when you ever sell it.
Oh, and I hear ya on the difference in ATV and car/truck tires as I spent 390 bux mounted balanced and installed for my 98 E150 work van and spent a bit more than that on my Bighorns.lol
Here is mine 92 GT with just about every bolt on imaginable..... Forgot to mention it has just under 21k on it I put just under 1 mile on it last year .......took it outta the yard to do a burnout infront of the house haha.


Heres a video of me playin in it a few years ago.

Here a vid of me racing a turbo RX-7. I loved this guys comentary...... "comes off the line leaving the rice burner behind..... half track leggin it out, runnin away by a mile" HAHA

Thank you sir! These things are a dime a dozen around here but its really hard to find a straight and clean one like mine. I probably paid too much for it when I bought it 5-6 years ago but it was worth it to me knowing it only had 16k miles on it. Garage kept from a 65yr old original owner....... I guess it was his mid life crisis presant
