It's kinda rough right now but was my daily driver from 87 to 91 the first time I owned it and 93 to 99 after I bought it back. The owner in-between changed the engine and trans.

    I got the fever again. Mine has been under a cover for a while. I got it out the other day and washed it and put it in the garage where it belongs.

    BTR,, that is a hot ride. Thanks for posting guys. Hopefully we'll get some more. I posted in all the forms that would have pace cars in them. I want to see some more of all years. We need someone with a 64 1/2 to make it complete.:hail2: :hail2: :hail2: :hail2: :hail2: :hail2: :hail2: :hail2:

    1979 Pace Cars......

    To Date.... I have owned 5 of the 1979 Mustang Pace cars. 2 were the 4 Cyl. Turbos, 2 were V8's and 1 was a 4 Cly. Turbo that had a V8 swaped into it. Those are my favorite FOX Body Mustangs. :spot:

    I'd sure like to see a pace car section, I think our pace cars are limited enough to have a separate section because how many do you see every day? I know mine is the only I've seen in like a year. Here is a pic of it.

    Thats a sweet ride. Has it been repainted or is that org? What all does it have? Tell us more. Mine is by far the only one I've seen in years so there is no doubt in my mind that I am keeping it.

    I'm going to post a pic again, cause I think the pic got dumped when Stangnet went to the new forum format.

    I just got my car back from bein repainted about 3 months ago, It has the complete drivetrain out of an 88 LX mustang including fuel injection. I bought the car about 2 years ago for $500, The only thing realy done to it performance wise is a dynomax cat back system K&N filter and a B&M hammer shifter to help me bang through the gears. Heres a pic of the engine, its not pretty but it works. Im gonna clean it up alittle this weekend. Here is a link to my web page if you want to check out more pics.http://members.cardomain.com/79indypacecar
