Not doable in this software with the privileges granted. Obviously if I had raw access to the Db I could make any change I wanted....but we are not setup to be able to do those things and the software in generally doesn't like it when it happens.

Just an FYI---- When you say FOX body and Mustang it is considered a 79-93 and none had ABS ! Only 90-93 had a driver side only Airbag.

It's just "tongue in cheek" (no, not the way that girl used to like to kiss in junior high....the other one).
I like the quad light foxbodies, especially the T-Top GT.
The SVO with the dual rear spoiler and flat aluminum rims Had a kind of European look just like the Merkur, I like that one.
We used to take them out to the empty back lot along with T-bird Turbo Coupes and anything else for that had a turbo.
We would drag race them during our lunch break which was at midnight (night shift).
Even the nighttime security officer would get in on it.
If Ford Motor Credit only knew what was happening to their leases and repos at the auto auction backlot.

My first new car purchase was an 82 GT, whopping 150 horsepower and we thought that was great after the dismal late 70's.

Glad to see the fox body section.
I think that was 157 HP. Every little bit helps, especially with that so-called 4 speed OD that they had in them. I bought a new LX with the 5.0 in '82, sort of a present to myself when I got divorced. Called it my "Freedom Car".

Dynacorn 67 fastback. Dart 363, Close ratio Magnum 6 speed, 3.70 Eaton Truetrac in a fabricated full floater 9", SorT coil over suspension. Still in pieces.
'14 SHO with most all the bells and whistles. Stock for now.

Heh! When we got rid of the 82 GT the four speed sounded like a blender with bag of bolts in it. Traded it in on an 87 F250 and the dealer never drove it, thank goodness. We had a lot of fun in that car.

Stan, have you seen an actual dedicated Fox forum? They make everyone on VMF look like we have PHD's or something, LOL.

Although, it's nothing in comparison to an import forum...

The goal is to try and stay that way around here too .
We have a large number of members who own mustangs from multiple generations and we were already seeing an uptick in discussion in other areas.....so let's keep on making this place great!

I've been on both sites. The Fox Mustang, and later 4.6/5.4 group, bore me very quickly. It's not just that the majority of them are much younger than me. Their whole deal is what engine they built, or blew up. I like forums that deal more with diagnostic issues, and fitment issues. Being an older tech, that other garb bores me quickly. Just a bunch of fluff.
