    Lol.

    I've been doing training for work. About to saw off a toe to get out of it.

    Please see thread about flywheel. Can't drive it until that is solved

    Well, there has been a lot going on in life lately. Unfortunately, none of it deals with the mustang. I'm pretty sure it's still in the garage. Might need to check? :scratch:

    Whoa whoa whoa Noobz347

    I'll have another soon, going to build it using parts from other abandoned projects people are trying to offload. It'll be "Project: Buy new parts so I can buy them from you at 40% of what you paid."

    Until then, I have a uber clean DD with A/C and 400+ hp at the wheels.

    Not quite. It's the cleanest, most well put together 99 gt I've ever seen. I flew to Dallas last night and drove it to Austin. Used half a tank at 75 mph the whole way. Makes 428 to the wheels also. I'll post more pictures and stuff tommorrow when I get home.

    Man that sucks Collin! I know I seen a thread about the 99 in squeaky wheel forum. It is built up and now you can just drive it!
