About “Mustang”

This is my newest purchased car. I am hoping on fixing it up to get some more evil out of it. It's got a 302 and then some in it.
Check out my videos for some videos of the car.

About “"The WHITE H.O!"”

RARE = GA w/ HIGH OUTPUT QUAD 4.

MORE RARE = GA w/ HIGH OUTPUT QUAD 4 AND nearly EVERY available interior option.

MOST RARE = GA w/ HIGH OUTPUT QUAD 4, nearly EVERY available interior option, AND under 75k miles ! ; )

I LUV it this car though - It's not sittin on bags, but FROM-THE-FACTORY this is my favorite car!
I bought this GT to 'replace' my first GA (the red '93 that I never got to complete)

I'm mostly keeping this one original except for REAL 'clean' little mods and some WHITE 19" wheels, MAYBE some Eibachs - shouldn't sacrafice much ride quality from a 1" drop.
