    Daily driving a foxbody is not for people without:
    mechanical skills
    tools
    a garage or safe place to wrench
    patience
    $$$$$$$$$$$

    Having just overhauled mine to the point that I can reliably drive it again. I have to say that from a $$$ standpoint, unless you go overboard our fubar the job they don't cost more than any other car to keep on the road. Just my .02 here, but is the people with a craftsman tool kit and bad advice on the interwebz that keep these cars in the **** pile category. I used to fall into that category but havelearned over the years that a factory shop manual is worth its weight in gold, not beef jerky, fruit roll up, bed bugs, syzuryp, or whatever else the kids are into these days. Follow it and all the tq values listed in it.

    Like I said earlier, the scariest part of this whole story is young Skywalker is enrollled in mechanic school. Imagine that nutswinger working at some Jiffy Lube some day, an not tightening up the lug nuts on some old lady's Buick. That kid has no clue wtf he's doing.

    Funny, I actually thought about sending him a floor jack. Then I realized it would cost more in shipping than it would to go buy one at Walmart
