About “tang”

I bought this 1988 mustang from a friend for $400, it was a factory 4 cylinder 5 speed LX mustang and it was a dark maroon color with white racing stripes, so it didn't have looks or power on its side...

i have since then replaced the 4 cylinder and trans with a 5.0 SBF with a mild cam and added a GT Body kit
it has been repainted Black and Blue, I have most of the interior redone in black with a black leather headliner, i have also added some MSD stuff to the motor, new flywheel, altonator, starter, stage 3 XTD racing clutch, full Magnaflow Exhaust, Bigger wrapped headers, and i also have a Set of Nito Drag radials on the back to put the power to the ground, added a drive shaft loop, as well as a lot of smaller detail stuff that was missing from inside the car.
