I spent a hundreds of hours working on a friends fox body back in the day. I learned a lot on fabrication welding and making headers. I also learned never build a race car unless you have a healthy six figure income!

I've got an 89 LX hatchback, 2.3L with the auto.

Bought it for my wife as a daily driver, but haven't driven it yet, only been 14 months.
Need to finish the exhaust, and then have some other stuff like swapping the hatch out and installing a driver's window.
So far I have done the 3G alternator swap and installed 98 Mustang power bucket seats.

Only paid $450 for it, have about another $300 in it with the alt, seats, and exhaust and a few little things. New plugs and wires, still not installed. Some other little stuff.
Needs tires, one of the current ones is a snow tire.

Had a bit of a health issue that I am just finishing recovery from, hoping to get back to it soon.

No pictures, I have some somewhere, not sure where and can't find them right now.


RIP Mallory, Abby, and Sadie. We miss you girls.

74 Pinto Wagon.
Missing a sane owner. I have gotten rid of the 2.3L stuff and will be going 351C. Has gone from being planned as a daily driver to a wild weekend fun car.

72 Ranchero GT w/351Cleveland & automatic. Although this wasn't supposed to be a project car it seems that it has become one. Stupid rusted out California floor pans.

89 Mustang LX Hatchback 2.3L with auto. Supposed to be for my wife, on hold.

A pic so old I forgot about even owning those 10 holes. Still have that photobombing tan dog though. And that panda bear license plate.
Currently in the midst of me finally doing something about that paint.
Wife's 1986 LX. Though she claims only the actual body is still hers after I donated a 1985 5.0 drivetrain into it. GT front chassis (was a 2.3 manual). An AOD. Some SN95 seats and stereo system. Edelbrock carb. Dual exhaust. 1993 GT rear wing. Other bits and pieces. "Hon, will you STOP hotrodding my car please!" "Yes dear." (Wonder how I can get these subframe connectors put on without her knowing?) After it gets more pretty we are debating swapping it to a T5. I still have the manual pedal set. Somewhere.

My 86 GT. Finished it a few months ago. I did every bit of the work myself and this is the first car I ever painted. It's not perfect, but it turned out decent. It's a fun street car with P/S and A/C that I take to the track once in a while.
-5.0 with Iron GT-40 heads, TFS1 cam, Edelbrock Performer EFI intake, 65mm TB, and shorty headers. Backed by a T-5 with a pro 5.0 and an 8.8" with 3.73 gears. 87-93 front brakes with Hawk HPS pads. So far it's been 13.7@101.5 on street tires.

Pic of the engine from when the car was still rolling around in primer

Unhappy My old 1993

Boy do i regret getting rid of this one...
Motor was untouched with only a cold air intake installed and a 5 lug conversion .. That was the original paint job besides the cowl hood. i got the car from a lady whose husband worked for ford and did all the work himself...
BOY do i kick myself for selling this one....

This is a good thing I believe.

My first car (which was actually my mom's old car that she let me drive all the time) was a 79 Hatchback. It was kind of neat because it was a Mustang but really, it was just reliable transportation.

She bought it used from another family member in '83 and I started driving it in '87. We finally sold it in the mid 90's and it left under its own power to live out its life in parts unknown.

It was an extremely ugly color (Chamois) and had a 4 cylinder engine that burned a quart of oil every 72 miles - like clockwork. But it would always start no matter what. Even on the coldest Chicago winter days. Probably because the starter didn't have to fight a lot of compression...

In this particular photo - the only one I can quickly find that has a good view of the car even in it - we can also see that it spent some of its time on the road with a broken left tail light. One thing that strikes me is that - we apparently didn't take any real photos of the car. It was just part of life.

This photo was taken in 1983 after the car had made a trip from Chicago to Washington DC - and if you look closely - you can see my 11 year old self in the doorway of my aunt's house.

So are any of you Fox Body folks going to the Pensacola MCA National in March? There are 10 unrestored Foxes there and one concours trailered going to be there. I will probably be judging half of them and another team of mine will do the other half. Wiltens

The 93 of my user name on vmf.. unfortunately, she's not looking like this right now. SHes missing all her wheels, the engine and trans. The 2000 mile dss 331 was taken out for my 66. My fox has an 07 16,000 mile 3V 4.6 sitting in my garage. Once I get all the bugs worked out on the 66, I'll start up on the fox again. This pic is from the MSD employee appreciation show I was in a few years back.

66 coupe | deep impact blue | 17" US Mags Ramblers | DSS 331 | TFS heads/Stage 1 cam | Dynomax Bullet mufflers | 3.80 Trac Lok posi | C4/Shift kit | PA Performance Billet Servo/Finned deep pan | CalTrac bars | 120mm Halo led grill lights | iPad mini Console/hidden pioneer stereo | Enclosed trunk/10" Kicker
Finally completed- working on last bugs....

65K original miles and nearly (perhaps all) factory options, except for the Signal Seeking radio (it has the Auto-Reverse cassette instead).
