About stangbird’s Garage


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"? Well, because that's what most people do in their right mind. I'm not most people.

My first car

1986 Chevy Blazer

Car I wish I still had

Procharged 1995 Mustang Cobra.

My dream car

1969 boss 429

Car clubs I’m in

I was a member of Mississippi Gulf Coast Mustang Club and Peninsula Mustang Enthusiasts in VA.

After driving the project car to work every day for the past couple years I decided to try it at the dragway. I ran a 13.94 at 103.76 mph. I was spinning real bad and it got worse as the night got colder. I guess it wasn't bad for the first time. Now I have to work on the traction issues. I feel this car is capable of high 12's with a 8.8 rear and some good tires.

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!

Update on the never-ending project

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...

Almost ready to run

Over the past year I've been debating what I was going to do with my car. It's not my daily driver so I figured I'd mod it and enter it in a local car show. I don't expect to place but at least it would be unique to say the least. I finally got the Holset...
