What's Up.

Hello everyone,

I just purchased my first "Hot Rod" mustang about a month or so ago. What I mean is, I've had several Mustangs in the past (1997 GT, 1993 Convertible 5.0) but this is the first highly modified mustang I've owned. Which means I will be working on it......alot In fact, I've already pulled the motor to refresh the ceramic coating on the headers and put all new gaskets on the motor, change the camshaft, and check out the bottom end.

Here is the story on the car....It was originally a 1988 Mustang but the owner tore it down to the frame and rebuilt it to look like a 1993 Mustang Cobra....with a few twists It has a Saleen wing, a Tremic 5-speed, a 408 Stroker motor (351W) Barry Grant 750CFM Race Demon, Victor JR single plane intake, Aluminum drive shaft, Aluminum heads, Aluminum radiator, electric fan, custom JE pistons, H-Beam Rods, Long tube headers, roller rockers, MSD ignition.....and plenty more (you get the picture) He owns his own paint and body shop and specializes in bad ass hot rods. He built this one for himself in 1995-1996 and it pretty much sat in his garage until I bought it. It had only 2200 miles put on the frame up resto when I bought it a month ago. It is totally and completely bad ass! That is the only way I can describe it.....and very clean.

However, as you may have guessed, being that it sat for so long, there is quite a bit of work to do to make it 100% reliable(or at least as reliable as a true Street Rod can be) I've already lost the fuel pump, got stranded on the freeway because of 1 loose 12V wire, lost a header bolt and therefore the header gasket, and found out that I have a Comp cam that is apparently so hard that no distributer gear in the world will survive more than 500 miles in it. It eaten a steel gear, a composite gear and started eating the brass one in it now with less than 300 miles on it. (We pulled the camshaft and sent it back to Comp, we will see what they have to say)

Fortunately, he is going to help me get all of this squared away. Hence, we have the car at his shop will the engine pulled. All of this being said, I know I will need some help figuring this thing out so I look forward to picking some of your brains. Of course, I will be happy to share my ups and downs with you guys, if it will help. In the mean time, I plan on making a sweet Stang even sweeter and having alot of fun doing it.

I thought when I bought it that it would not attract alot of attention, being a fox body and all. (I figured everybody would have seen it all before) But either it truly is a bad A%% ride or clean fox body hot rods are becoming pretty rare because this car draws a crowd wherever I go. The more I drive it the more I feel like I shouldn't be driving it.

Anyways, just thought I would introduce myself and say what's up to everybody.

Regards

Welcome to the Insanity. Pics please. Brian has straight jackets. Einy keeps the drunk thread going when Bobby is not mumbling about crazy stuff. Look out for JIB because you never know what he is up to. And if you know what is good for you don't go see Doug's TV room or you will end up in the hole. Just ask Clint and Bobby.LOL Welcome again.
