Hey ya'll! This is my new daily driver Mustang. It's still a syrprise to everybody I know cause I haven't told anybody about it ... Show moreyet. I bought it July 20th, 2005 for $1700. It needed some bodywork and a new fender, which is already done by the way thanks to alot of elbow grease and sandpaper, but we drove the car 75 miles home. I think it was a good buy. It had some light damage from an accident a few years ago, but it's all been straightened out and it should be ready to drive in a couple weeks when I start my first college classes, which means it'll be time for my '69 to take a break and get some work done on it.
Engine: 232ci 3.8L V6
Transmission: T5 5 speed manual
Interior: black with black leather '98 Cobra seats
Milage:a bunch, almost 200,000 miles =(
Options: none, not even power windows or door locks :)
Plans: a whole lot, stay tuned!! :)
The car was originally Deep Forest Green, but when it got wrecked they painted it back chrome yellow and then turned around and painted it Canary yellow. After I finish the body work and put a body kit on it and everything I"m painting it Screamin' Yellow with Black hood stripes, and a customized '94 Boss Shinoda stripe. It may be awhile 'fore I get all that stuff so be patient. I've also got a killer idea for a stereo system coming. I think it'll be a one off deal, I've never seen it done before. I'll have some pics up soon of the actual car once I get my digi camera to Walgreens.
Okiday, here's what the car looks like now. It's not great, but since this picture I've replaced the side trim peice and fixed the broken side marker light. It's coming slowly but surely.
And the car will hopefully look something pretty close to this when it gets done. There'll be a few difference cause I have to make it my car, but you'll see. Can't give everything away. When it gets done it'll be a registered Boss Shinoda car which will be pimp. It prolly won't have side exaust, and I want the silver Bullitt rims for it.
Well, time for an update: Not much has happened 'cept for a bunch of money going into gas and insurance. :) I went to the Moultrie GA swap meet and found some leather GT seats for $50. Not a bad deal. I've believe they're called Graphite color. I'm supposed to be gettin' a back seat too once the people send it. I got some racing pedals with yellow inserts to dress up the interior a bit. Got a heater core in the car since it's startin' to get kinda cold here. :) And I've got a killer idea now for the stereo, just gotta get the green to get it. That's about it for now. I've got some new pics too, I'll post them next time I'm on.

Now that it's been almost an entire year since I updated this thing I think I'll let you in on a little progress. I decided to change the interior again, this time purchasing a full set of black leather seats out of a '98 Cobra for $200. I then bought a new carpet, black door panels, and did a lot of paint work on the console and ended up with an entirely black interior. There's some pics below. I also bought a BBK cold air intake which I'll have pics of soon. And I came up with a new idea for the engine, it'll still be a '94 "Ford" 3.8L V6 Mustang, but it's gonna be a little different from the one in it now. I can't give details because someone may read this and figure out my idea, meaning I"m gonna beat his 2001 V6 Mustang, but yeah. Here's the pics:
Just a reminder: Find a Designated Driver!!!
