About “Wild Cherry”

A guy who works for me owns a black IROC-Z. Until he showed me his car, I wasn't really into cars at all. John's car changed all that. Within a couple of weeks, I knew I needed a hot car too. I started looking for a car that suited me, but I kept going back to John's black IROC, so that's what I decided I wanted. One day at work, he told me about an older friend of his who was selling a red IROC that he had bought brand new. He had arthritis in his knees, and it was getting worse. There was no way he could drive a stick shift car anymore. Since he hardly ever drove the car anyhow, he decided it was time to sell it. The car had been kept in a heated garage under a car cover, and never driven in rain or snow. It only had about 15,000 miles on it since new. It looked and drove like a new car. He wanted it to go to a good home, and John put in a good word for me. I don't drive it very often either - it's strictly a good weather pleasure car, just like it was for the old guy who sold it to me.

About “Wish I was a Shelby”

My Dad bought me this Mustang for my first car. It needs some work but we are getting there slowly. We are converting it to right hand drive because I live in Australia. Fitting a 302 and t5 transmission.
I want it to look like a old shelby racer no modern parts.
