    my grandad has a 95 mustang gt and he's talking about handing it down to me. it's black with a black interior and a black convertible top 5.0 5 speed chrome cobra rims and a couple of minor mods. he's going to give it to me since he'll still have his roush. my question is do do i leave the interior alone. i live in GA and the summers get really hot esp. w/ black leather. also how would you mod it? what would it take to beat the roush?

    Just tint the windows. As long as your A/C works fine, black leather is managable.

    It's a low 12 second car with a good driver. With grandpa maybe a little slower.
    A good H/C/I swap with traction should get you in front of him. :nice:
    Or a SC w/ 8-12lbs of boost should do it also. (Just change the intake)

    if it's a low 12 car then it'll run low 12's when he's racing it.
    H/C/I? i don't think i've seen that term, but i usually hang out in the 2.3 forum
