Yes, after due consideration....

a much consternation between members, staff, and many many focus groups with the general public....Fox Bodies are now considered Vintage.

What's a fox body you may ask? I'm not sure myself, but you can talk about them here:

This is bullsh**!
They had air bags!!
They had ABS
They had computer controlled engine management systems!
Now you're going to tell me that the Black Eyed Peas are available for download on my classic rock playlist!!

I think it's pretty fair. When I got my first Foxbody mustang, the 65 was 28 years old, and was considered vintage back then. Now my Fox is 29 years old so it should be considered vintage in its own right.

I was just working on my 87 GT last weekend and it popped in my head, "Dang, this thing is 30 years old." You know you're old when a 30 year old car is still a "late model" in your head.

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 was wondering when this was going to happen.
I have an 89 LX hatchback, 2.3 with an auto.
Still not sure if I like them being here or not, but at least I can talk about it here, which is a good thing compared to other forums I am on.

To Makedust, not all of them had airbags or ABS. Most don't.

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.

Yeah I had a '83 GT. I actually posted a thread about it in the new section at 5:30...1 minute before dodgestang's post. Apparently it was deleted because it was too new or because it was the first thread in the new forum and wasn't supposed to be.

Regards,
Patrick

I thought so as well, but then went back and checked. Your post originally showed 5:31...now it shows 5:27. Mine showed 5:30. So whom was :30 behind? We will never know, because my post is now gone. So who is the liar

One thing that can never be done....is change a time stamp from the database.

And since you are online, why did you not answer my PM regarding the deleted post?
