Mods I see people have their build threads labeled. sorry I don't know how to do it please help, and thanks.

So I put together a diy turbo sn95 last year and had my fun with it.(See "turbo project complete humps and bumps") Had big plains for it but listed it for sale and actually made a great deal. With no car in the garage, and cash burning a hole in my pocket I picked this car up.

Copy and paste from ending last build:

With the instant regret setting in 2 days later I found a white 95 gt with some bolt on's listed at 3500$. I asked if showing up with 2800 would be a waste of time, and he said no. (I don't normally bargain on the phone but the car was two hours away)

So I show up the car barely runs, the paint is covered in 2 years of moss and filth. Body looks great, chassis looks incredible, interior is showroom perfect (80k real miles)and a "few bolt on's" include studed trick flow heads, big cam, trick flow everything from heads to air cleaner, injectors fuel rails regulator, stage 2 clutch, built trans, gears, Ford racing springs, Caster camber plates, full exhaust with long tubes, you get the idea by now..

So I believe being fair and honest made this an even bigger deal! it's difficult to explain the situation in text but I'll try.

Me: "man it hardly runs and I got my work cut out for me but I got to be honest everything looks great so I got 2800 let's load her up". *hand shake*

Seller: " oh by the way I got these 4 perfect black cobra R knock off's wrapped in brand new 275 rubber that come with the car if you're interested"?

I think the seller knew what he was doing and would have sold the wheels separate if I beat him up on the price.

Anyway I'll start a new thread for the car but for now here are some pics of the progress

Ps: coil, power steering tank o ring, and repair a broken pin in the maf harness is all it took to get the car mechanically sound.

Since, I have taken a coil out of the springs, added slotted rotors, cleaned and buff, mounted the wheels that came with the car, o-ring rebuild on the power steering, added the chin spoiler and painted it white, put in composite headlights, and that's pretty much it so far.

The car has a tune on a moats chip and all I had was a 1/4 horse in the old car so it had to go with it. So, I need to order a new quarter horse because the decay and idle could use a little help. Also, who knows what the future holds * cough supercharger* (maybe) otherwise the car Is great.

Anyway this is no build project yet. I will enjoy the car until salt is on the roads. I also have it listed fs. At 6k with 5300 being the bottom $ in my head. In spite of the interest I doubt it will sell so I have a winter ahead of me but, don't know what to do to the car???

Very open to cosmetic suggestions, criticism, and build ideas. Streetable, autocros, and quarter mile are the main uses in no particular order. Considering the car has a great interior and is a full car with AC, "race car" mods are pretty much out the door. By my definition a Streetcar has Windows heat and a radio(nothing more). All Things Considered this will be more like my girlfriend's definition of Streetcar (Aka: 3300+lbs).

All that said I'm thinking conservative supercharger, 3 sets of wheels and tires (street autox drag) and maybe a 5ch sq stereo.

Input please and thank you. I really don't know what to do with it. It goes against every bone in my body but I think all things considered including resale with this car my best bet is to keep it simple, and take a focus on street car amenities to make it comfortable to your modern-day hot rod.

This is typed on my brand new phone so I will add pictures in the next post shortly from the old phone.

Pics in no order... the random picture underneath is the cross member behind the gas tank because that's one of the first places to get rust.

Guess this will have mostly as purchased, and the horrible moment that is the state of Maryland forcing me to blast holes in the front of my ship:
