    My name is Jonathan. (good friend of 5.0Droptops)

    I have had several project mustangs over the last few years but I always seemed to get offers for them that I cant refuse so needless to say I sold them.

    I have been looking for a solid 25th annv. sunroof 5.0 5sp gt for a long time. I ran across this one and the price was right so I bought it.

    So here is my 25th annv. 89 gt factory 5.0 5 spd sunroof car. It was a decent driver about 2 mos ago. Then I decided to do a small project, that turned into a huge project.

    I recently bought an 88 roller that had nice mods: tubular front suspension built rear, coil overs.5lug swap....etc etc...... I decided to swap all that over to my 89 and put all my stock parts on the 88 and sell the 88.

    Then I decided to paint the 89 so I pulled the engine and trans and have been degreaseing and cleaning the car prepping it for paint.

    Heres a few pics to start the thread.
