    Not trying to start an argument, just pointing out the intent of this thread. I realize you have a few stumbling blocks in the way, but dude, it's a T-Top car!

    Stumbling blocks? LOL! Rusted out floors,trunk area,and hatch lid. And the guy i got it from has no clue about the title.I contacted NC DMV and they were no help. No one loves the four eyed cars more than me(i have owned 4 four eyed Mustangs,2 Capris and a Fairmont)but i would rather use the body parts on something else than to see it all go to the crusher. I orginally bought the car for parts only for $350. I didn't even know the car ran.I got it for the 5 spd,pedals and the grey interior. But i agree< i hate to see any four eye car go to waste.

    I have an 84 LX Convertible that is in desperate need of a paintjob but I always loved the 4 eyes more than the aero cars. Once I start putting some work into it. I'm gonna start a project thread to show how nice a 4 eye can look, but I do plan to keep it a v6 however but may turbo charge it.

    When I was looking for a fox I had the chance to get a 86 gt with a 5 lug swap, it was mint! I passed it up and got a 92 lx instead. After I seen these cars I'm wonder what I was thinking when I did that!

    I agree, in Canada they were called GT Cobra, and I'm paying $200 more a year in insurance because of a stupid sticker Ford put on my car. I hope to do the cosmetic stuff this summer...

    Long live the 4 eyes :D
