About “dear killer”

this is my beater.that's when i'm not out beating on the Monte..lol .i actually hit a buck with this thing doing 50mph after i hit the dear i ran over it.lets just say a few families ate good that weekend...

About “Murphy”

This is my second Mustang after my 1996 V6. This car was troubled from the start (blowing a tire on the trailor on the way home from PA). Since this car has given me a problem with everythign I have done on it, I have named it Murphy...for Murphy's law of course. This car has ZERO rust on it so I have been willing to put up with the mechanical difficulties I had getting it running while I had it. The car will eventually get a GT 40 tubular intake, AFR 185cc aluminum heads, Steeda # 19 cam, a 347 stroker kit, and a Procharger. I will be seeing LS1s in my mirror
