    I'm sure I going to take my fare share of criticism for posting this but I'm super happy to be purchasing my Mustang back from my Dad. I sold it to him about 8 years ago and he has finally agreed to let me buy it back. Here is a picture of it just before I sold it but it now has a nice new white top and 17x9 white cobra rims.

    The backstory on the car is I bought it from a friend that wanted to see it go to a good home. It had 114K on it (still under 120k) which isn't bad for a car that old. It's an 88 fairly stock with a few upgrades. I re-painted it the factory oxford white that's pictured but did shave the door handles. I put a new white vinyl seat covers in it (factory color) and cleaned up the rest of the interior that was in really good shape. We installed a paxton supercharger, MS3, bigger injectors and Flowmaster exhaust. It was a factory auto but swapped it over to a 5 speed with all factory parts I had off another Mustang parts car. It's not quite as fun as my Camaro but it's still a blast and I'm happy to get it back. These Fox Body's are getting harder to find in decent condition and I've always had a soft spot for the convertibles. I just need to hammer out the details with Dad and I can enjoy it again.

    I deserve that. :) If it makes you feel better though my Camaro is far superior in every way. :)

    Nice..I do miss my 86 5.0 LX sometimes.
    We still have the GT 5.0 Hatch though.

    the blown 5.0 is slower than your Camaro?

    Might be the modern day 55 Chevy. Still popular cars 30 years later.

    Ya, the Camaro is twin turbo and probably has 150-200hp advantage the way they both currently sit.


    Possibly the best chase scene ever? Unfortunately those are way out of my price range.

    Nice, looks to be in really good shape. I kick myself, I practically gave away an 86 GT convertible because I didn't dig the front end on it at the time.They were relatively cheap and easy to find then but the body has grown on me since and they area lot harder to find and the value has increased quite a bit.
