  2. Ok, here goes..

    My baby is a 76 Cobra II, 302/4 speed car. I am in the process of restoring it back to as factory original as humanly possible. I am on a neverending quest for NOS and good factory correct used parts and I have probably already spent as much as I paid for the car on NOS parts for it. I am not looking to win shows, be judged, or compete with my car (although I may do so from time to time), I just want a proper "correct" car that I can be proud to drive. People love the car wherever I go, and I won a first place trophy at the first car show I attended this year. Here are some pics, hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

  4. Ok here's my 78 Fastback:

    The Blue Fastback is my 363 hp Tunnel Ram car that was in a recent accident. The pics are of it at a weekly car show in town before the accident. And yes, it is factory Dark blue with Red Interior. The rugs and seats have been changed.

    Engine Vitals-
    '67 289 bored .030 with Speed Pro Cast pistons. All stock lower end with HV oil pump and ARP drive rod. Edelbrock Performer RPM cam, lifters and Timing chain. The heads are '66 Hi-Po 289's fully ported and has 1.94/1.60 Chev valves with Edelbrock Torker Springs and Isky Valve locks. Custom length Trickflow Chrome Moly pushrods and Crane Energizer Full roller rockers finish off the valve train. Currently it has a Weiand Dual Quad Tunnel Ram with 2 450cfm Holley manual secondary 4bbls. Ignition- for now, I'm running a Pertronix Mr. Ignitor and Mallory Promaster Coil with Accel 8.8 wires (not in picture) Previous Owner butchered the wiring so I have yet to fiddle with making the DuraSpark work again.

    Exhaust- Dynomax headers feed through 2.5" pipes to Dynomax Super Turbos and 3" exits the muffs out the back.

    Trans- Currently Stock C4 trans with Stg 2 B&M shift kit. Unaffortunately this C4 has the pinto valvebody and i fear it's light duty at that.

    Other mods- I have a 3.50:1 spooled rear and SSM lift bars and also the SSM Subframe Connectors. Up front, shortened stock front coils and a 1 1/8" front sway bar with Monroe shocks. Manual R&P steering, Racing bucket seats, Moroso sealed Batt box, Scummit remote batt cut-off and all "0" (single ott) Battery cable. Keeping it somewhat cool is a 16" perma-cool fan and a 4 row (small tube) radiator.

  5. Here's my '76 Cobra II. It's a V6 4 speed car and all original as you see it. It'll be getting a full resto down the road.

    Mods so far- 14" Outlaw wheels, 3.40 trac lok rear with rear sway bar. Absolutely NO exhaust!.....actually, only about 2 feet of pipe on each side!!!

  6. I guess i'll replace this spot were my '75 Ghia was with my newest accusititon, a '78 Ghia. I paid $100 for it in Nov '03. A guy came by with it on the trailer was referred to me from another car buddy of mine. He said the crusher would give him $75 for the hulk so i offered him $100 and that he can dump'er in my back yard. Originally it was a black exterior red interior car but someone started changing the interior over to black. The V6 is mostly dis-assembled and in the trunk. It has the C4 auto trans and an 8" rear. I'm debating on what to do with it right now. i have a spare, sweet running V6 in the garage and a spare auto trans if need be. The car is not rusty, not one bit at all. The vinyl top is in fair shape and the body is really straight except for a dent in the right front fender. I'll figure out what to do with it soo enough. It's such a soild car, I'd hate to part it out. :shrug:

    I'll have a pic up soon. (too many other pics on SN already- past my quota!)

  9. You can check out my car here http://www.cardomain.com/id/mustangii

    I get tired of writing the same thing over and over. It says pretty much everything on the site. The car is still in the shop, I think it is finally being worked on now engine is getting rebuilt and 2nd gear is out so that is being fixed. I got the car sometime around May 7th, was when I made the page. So I think that is the day I got it. Anyway the car has been smoking really bad since the day we got it, and several people told me the rings were fryed. It still ran, we put like 1,000 miles on it maybe less. The mileage is kinda messed up, doesnt count right. Anyway we would end up having to put oil in it about every 100 miles. So anyway..yeah look I wrote a whole paragraph all though I said I wasnt going too. lol Anyway check out the site for pics.
  10. this is my beast....351W soon to have a set of ported and polished heads. might swap the C4 for a T5 conversion and MAYBE a 393 stroker. i'll get some interior pictures up soon.

  17. You have to have your images hosted on the net somewhere, like your own website or a web hosting service. Some are free but limit how much linking you can do. Use the yellow box icon above the reply window to insert an image. A dialogue box will pop up for you to put in the web address of the image you want to post. It will then show up in your reply instead of a link.
  18. OK, wrong ride, I know, I know!!!!
