    As the title says im buying a ford....but not a ford truck, im buying a foxbody notch back mustang for a $100, it has the inline 4 in it right now which is blown up, along with an A/T tranny which is also bad, its going to be a project car, sadly ive always wanted a foxbody i would love it if it was the fastback but the notch back being more rare i think will be a cool build, now heres my question what should i put in it(im gonna stay with a ford motor). sorry if i gave any one a heart attack over the title but i figured it would get your guys attention

    Spending money on a Ford is like lighting a match to your money and turning your back on it while it burns...

    Wanting a car that goes ... so you buy a project car that doesn't. There's some failed logic for you...

    you gotta start some where...and building from the ground up is usually the way to go, being that nothing really works on it is even better, means everything i do will be because i did it not some one else doing it and i bought it that way (i hate that)

    Of course nothing really works on it. It's a Ford. What did you expect?!

    Perhaps. Just remember ... if nothing really works on it ... and you're working on it ... well, you might be putting yourself at risk!

    As long as you put a turbo lq4 6.0 motor in it then it will pretty much be a chevy! :lol:

    But seriously if you wanna go fast you should do that......... There are a few foxbody's running around indy with that setup!

    they way i look at it is im picking up quite a deal on this car...yes it may be a ford, but ive always wanted a fox body, esp after selling my supra ive been wanting another project car, so far i have yet to have to many problems with my truck *knock on wood* but i think almost any brand can support what surreal said lol
