    new pony in the stable

    so some of you may be familiar with my dads hording of mustangs

    he had an 89 fox that he built from the ground up (paint, bodywork, engine, etc all done by him)



    in july of 13 he traded for another 89 mustang GT that had all of 6,000 miles on it:


    he wasnt too fond of it and it was a lot slower than the orange one so instead of building it, he sold it last week

    and now, we are in possession of the ONLY mustang i've wanted him to get (well, realistically anyway.. a 67 shelby isn't going to happen any time soon)








    i'm SO excited. i drove it yesterday and it really hauled. it has more than double the HP of my subie and just has that raw power feel to it. this is one of the only cars i've driven that has truly put a smile on my face. it was SO FUN.

    here's the modlist from the PO:

    billet flow irs girdle and idler pulleys
    maximum motorsports sloid diff bushings and subframe bushings
    solid upper and lower control arm bushings
    rear toe links
    front bump steer kit
    front lower control arms
    camber caster plates subframe connectors
    front and rear adjustable coil overs
    sport valved bilstein struts
    upper strut tower brace
    steeda tri ax shifter
    upper pulley is a 2.76
    ported blower


    i wont be able to drive it again for a while though because as of this morning it's already ripped in to pieces and being prepped for brand new sparkly shiny paint.

    desiree

    That Termi has some serious potential.

    Ok, I'll be the one to be a downer, but I liked that black foxbody better

    How fast is the new one? Taken it to the strip yet, 60ft time, mph?

    Unless that thing is modded I don't think it has double the hp as your wrx!

    Ahh the only mustang I considered buying before my wrx. I love that whine.
    A simple pulley swap and youre at 450 rwhp easy, it's crazy.
    Have fun!
    What color is he going with?

    Thanks he's keeping it pretty close to the OEM color. It'll be a red metallic but a few shades different. I'll post pics when it's finished

    Nice! Is that a terminator? I sold my '10 GT500 a few months before I got my WRX. Only reason I did was that I wanted to go back to motorcycles and I knew it would just sit.

    Congrats on the Cobra!!!

    Fast. If you've never driven a Termi: they pull like holy goddamn hell stock.

    Made my 320whp bugeye feel like a Corolla.
