About me and my passion for cars
I'm in the US Coast Guard so I am away from my friends and family for more than half of the year. When I am home, I like to play with my 1989 mustang. It's a lot different than my other project cars because it's a 4-banger. I always get the question, "Why didn't you just put a V8 in it like everyone else"?

1986 Chevy Blazer
Car I wish I still had

I definately need an 8.8 rear and some better tires if I want to get a better time than 13.9 @t 103.76. I couldn't hook until 3rd gear!

So finally the engine is 97% where I'd like it to be and it ran but there's still a lot to do. The local high school car show is only a few weeks away but it isn't looking good for my car. I still have to get carpet and brakes. I still have to replace the...
