    1) 84 SVO
    2) 85 Merkur (sold first one and stinger got the last one)
    1) 88 Mustang coupe turbo (built for my girlfriend)
    1) 87 Turbocoupe gutted and tubbed, no engine currently but I have it:p
    2) 88 TCs blue with blue leather currently doing 5spd swap from red on red parts car
    1) 84 TC black 5spd with gray leather most likely a parts car but I'm going to try to fix it.
    1) 86 TC black auto gray cloth complete

    and pending.....
    79 turbo pace car should pickup by christmas
    74 pinto to be a race car by spring.(its here but I'm not ready to set the motor in it yet.

    thats 11 total. 9 still here, stingers getting the merk soon. 4 in progress and 1 pending.
    I also have an 89 N/A 2.3 5spd coupe and a 90 2.3 hatch auto both for sale.

    Holy crap how did this happen?? At this time last year the only thing I had was my SVO and I didn't start buying turbo stuff until May of this year. Before anybody gets the wrong idea I started with a $25 investment to pay for everything listed after the SVO. My first Merkur I bought for $25 and sold $1200. :p each one has been less than less $350 except for the SVO.

    if you keep your eye open, and keep a little money in the bank, its really easy to aquire lots of good cars. I mean the merkur I'm getting, I found out about it, because the guy that owns it saw my svo and is like Hey I have a merkur i'd sell ya for $$$ amount. and there ya go 2 cars, i've seen several cars I would have bought that are only a couple hundred bucks, if I'd of had the money at the time I would have them.
