1995 Mercury Mystique GS with the 2.0 Zetec and MTX-75 transmission. currently i have put in a pioneer head unit, pioneer speakers, spark plugs, new transmission and clutch, new front and rear brakes, HID's painted calipers, new lower control arms, lowering springs, switched oil to Mobile 1 full synthetic 5W-30 motor oil, and switched to AMS oil synthetic tranny fluid.
So, since i've gotten my 1988 Ford Tempo GLS 2 door project car, this car has become my parts getter as well as my Daily Driver, drag car, and so on. Cant beat this car too much anymore though. I've decided that it is too reliable to tinker with anymore. Once i start having problems, i'll probably pull the engine and trans and rebuild the, but until then, i'm not modding it anymore. I took it to Pittsburgh and back to get parts for the Tempo project and i got a whopping 38.7 MPG's with an engine block and about 4 boxes full of random parts.
My current best 1/4 mile time is a 16.989 @ 82mph with a slightly worse 60ft time of 2.536. The 1/8th mile came around in 10.943 @ 64.26mph. and i only burned thru 1/4 tank of gas at the drag strip, getting a combined mileage (racing/highway) of 29mpg
Here are some pics of the car with the lowering springs...
Here are some pics of the car all cleaned up with the 15" Contour SE wheels and HID headlights (4500K)

Hey! How have you been?? When did you get this ride? I like it a lot. Keep me posted!
Whats up bro, I actually moved to Myrtle Beach, Do not have the tempo now BUT I just got a ZX2, I am excited to get started. I want to get back into the car audio shop like I had in Ohio, BUT I am in graphics. I am doing vehicle wraps, and you know me and my lights I found a way to light the wrap up, HOLY CRAP. Well anyways if you know anyone who wants to wrap their car Let me know man OK. I am doing them really inexpensive and I am all over the country all summer long doing the installs. this winter when it dies down, And if I do enough wraps I will be sporting the ZX2 . LOL
hello Mark check out my page I added some new pics of the car. Talk to you soon,
I ended up going to Carlisle this past week but don't worry, that probably won't happen again lol. I think the next time I might have a chance to come down would be Easter weekend. I'll definitely let you know.
