    ^^^ darkwriter it doesn't matter what it looks like, so ya it's worthy of a look. the point of the thread was to showcase or share the other rides we have.

    speaking of which we have some nice ones so far :nice:. Hey FrankenStang do the four conversion, that would be an awsome project!!

    96 GT. 120k, 5spd(TKO 500), 2.73's..... Livernois intake kit, CAI, Flows (40's) cat-back and JMS tune. 26 mpg...... Think I got a front hub going bad, but it has been a good ride thus far.

    Thanks, I had the 4.6 aswell. Looking at the sticker and the same gas mileage listing i figured it was worth the extra cost, plus it had the 6 speed and it did well towing. Driving 48 miles one way to work adds up right now though.

    Hey Mike, looking for one of these bad boys. Hands down one of my favorites even though motor trend & car & driver pick the 3 series in test with the g35, the g's numbers are always damn close or better.to me for $$ the G is my pick. I'm suprised no one has scoped up the stang, she is a very clean example!!

    1990 Honda Accord EX-R. 150,000 KM . I like it, but its not very good on gas. My Mustang is just barely worse.

    '02 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 40th anniversary edition
    '07 Ford Edge AWD (company vehicle).

    I'd so love to dump the GTP for an Infinity G35 or G37 coupe. :drool:

    Thanks. :nice:

    Still trying to decide if I wanna simply give Stinky a fresh coat of (Rustoleum) white paint, or if I want to go through the hassle of switching it over to black. It'd look WAY better in black, but I'd have to paint the interior panels and such to match, and unless I strip it all down or prime the whole thing, every nick/scratch is going to show white underneath. :shrug:

    Only drove the 'vert to work today for the first time in I dunno how long, and right away I was not only missing the luxury of A/C and a radio (even though Stinky's only rocking a tape deck with 10-year-old speakers), but I went through almost a quarter-tank of gas in the 'vert going ONE WAY to work! :eek:

    Stinky's 26 MPG and 20-gallon fuel tank FTW. :nice:

    I just snapped pics of my beast, bought it for 900 bucks, put a clutch in it and just put a new exhaust on it. Its a great car and relatively quick too. I ran 15.4 @ 92 with her. I think I can squeeze high 14's out of her but the clutch is weak as hell and I dont want to break the differential like they like to do in these cars. I'm probably going to paint the roof and top of the trunk lid semi gloss black to go with the hood to cover up the hideous delamed paint and make it look a little better
