    I would trade my 91 Coupe for a clean 4 eyed coupe any day of the week... I would have to keep my mods though:D

    & I absolutely love 86 T-top GT's. In fact I was gonna trade my 95 GT for a nice one at one time but I ended up backing out because my 95 was the DD at the time....

    SAVE THE 4 EYED's............

    Capri's are badass too....


    Here are a few nice ones I found online....

    once again you contradict yourself. why is his car any different? it's still a conversion. who cares if he saved it from the crusher:shrug:

    not saying that it isnt a nice car b/c it is, but there are many people that flame the very mention of a conversion and then when a converted car is finished everyone is quick to say how bad ass it is. I dont get it.

    oh good, another stangnet member who doesn't read the original post before they throw in their 2 cents, how many times do i have to type that this thread IS NOT AGAINST CONVERSIONS... no one is flaming anyrthing... the purpose of it is to show people who may not know the potential of a four eyed mustang the potential these cars have

    i said what i said to matt because i'd always rather see a car converted than crushed, and i'm sure people will agree with me on that, but once again, this thread isn't against conversions, people do what they want with their cars... and hack job is absolutely gorgeous

    four eyed cars at car shows around where i live and on several local forums are dismissed as ugly by aero nose owners... so i guess i'll type it again for the guys who won't go back one page to read the original post... this thread's only intention is to show some pics of really nice, tastefully done four-eyed mustangs, so people can see how well they can be done, and make their own informed choices

    I have seen that car at the track several times, it definitely hauls ass. It looks even more badass in person.

    This is an invalid perception the 4I peeps often run up against.

    Unfortunately, removing a 4I car from circulation helps to doom the rest of the group to obscurity. As a group in the shadow of the 87-93 Foxes we get ignored quite a lot. We don't get nearly as many aftermarket or reproduction parts. Manufacturers refuse to make parts for us due to our small numbers and dwindling base. 87-93 Mustangs for the most part were unchanged, the group together represents a very sizeable base to target for parts. Unfortunatley for the 4I cars, they pretty much went through significant revisions every other year. You can roughly break it down 79-82, 83-84, 85-86 but the list is endless as to the parts that changed each and every year. To a manufacturer its an absolute nightmare.

    Take the Capri. It is exceedingly rare compared to the Mustang. More Mustangs were made (roughly 10:1 more per year) but yet Capri values lag Mustangs (rarity does NOT necessarily mean higher values). Every Capri that gets eliminated due to a nose swap in essence would be like eliminating 10 Mustangs at once. Its devastating.

    I'm not trying to bash anyone here, but I want to maybe clarify a misconception or two and to help a few out there understand why we fight so hard to be recognized and why it's so important.

    BTW, to stay somewhat relevant...here's my fav :)

    I like SVT32VDOHC. He's good people but, his car? It rubs me the wrong way. Sure, it's nice looking and was done right but, me no likey. :(Hell, I don't even like my own Capri right now. I mean, I DO like it because, it's my car. I'd love it if it had the correct body parts.
    So glad you showed up. :nice:
