    New Wisconsin Fox Owner

    Hey everyone - new guy here. I just picked up a 1990 LX 5.0 over the weekend. It's had a few mods over the years, some of which I know and some of which I'm sure I'll find as I dig deeper into it. I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time on this forum throughout the course of this project...
