  1. In an attempt to relive my youth I'm thinking about the ultimate high school car for anybody my age. I had a shitty 79 Toyota Corrola in high school and then an S-15 Jimmy that I wrecked. I always coveted other peoples coupes, but mom wouldn't let me buy a mustang on payments. So, I haven't bought a car yet, but I'm close. I have crazy ideas for new projects all the time, but this one has been on my mind for a while now and I'm moving with it. I have some parts that I've had left over for years and Joey (higherpowerracing) tempted me with a few more. So, I have a pile started. I've been looking half heartedly for a while for a nice fox coupe. That's not been as easy as I thought. Most everything is overpriced or has shitty paint. I want a simple project this time, but really I just need solid paint. I can fix anything else as needed. I remembered my friend (engine builder for my GN) has a coupe he was going to put a v6 in. He bought another car to do that with, so the coupe has been sitting. I asked him about the coupe the other day and he says he will sell it. I'm going to go look at it, but most likely this is my new project. Does anyone know what this color is called? It's a 93 and as far as he knows it's an original color. It's not calypso or reef blue. It looks like bimini, but I don't think that's a 93 color. It could be a 91 or 2 I guess. It has grey interior, subframes, a bolt in 4 point cage and a 5 lug conversion. No engine or trans, but the wiring and a9l computer are still there.

  3. Mikes Mid-life Crisis Mustang

    Mustang build 2.0 but scaled down. I've been looking for a new cheap project. I wasn't sure what to do, maybe another car. Maybe some arts and crafts stuff. Nothing lit my fire. Until I was in Hobby lobby last night looking at the Models. I saw this and thought it was too cool. https://www.revell.com/model-kits/cars/85-4195.html#.Wl5_vq6nEdU I haven't built a model in forever. It's got all the typical mods you would do. Optional hood, wheels, wing etc. But it get's better when there's optional headers, exhaust, seats, rear diff cover, stock vs. edelbrock intake, Cold air vs. stock and more. I think I'll build it like I would have wanted the blue coupe. I just have to order this blower. http://www.b-n-lresins.com/shoppingopencart/Aftermarket-resin-cast-1-24-1-25-scale-model-Engine-Parts-blowers-breather-electrical-exhaust-heads-oil-pan-pump-valve-cover/resin-turbo-supercharger-model-aftermarket-scale/resin-cast-bnl-super-pro-charger-num-2-model-1.24-1.25-scale-aftermarket
  4. Snow reports

    My daughter freaked out about the snow a couple years ago. This year she loves it.

    We got maybe 1".

    I already have a 4 door Cadillac. How much more "old man" car can you get.
  7. Random thought thread

    That was a pretty good video. In person you could see the windows shaking, but most videos didn't capture that. Yours did.
  8. Happy Birthday To...

    I'm here. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. 40 trips around the sun.
  9. No, I want something that has 4wd all year long. (/smartass) I need a new project and just want a 4wd to go play offroad in.
  10. Right now I miss all the 4wd trucks I had. 05 ram 2500, 87 gmc 2500 and 95 tahoe. My ram may go on the chopping block soon in trade for a jeep.
  11. You’re just a few years away from having an army of young boys who need stuff to tinker with. It sounds like there is a hotrod for each of them if they put in the work.

    I lost both of my grandmothers this year also. Sorry for your loss.

    Close to home. I might have to do it this year.
  15. Funny of the day.

    A young man from Arkansas goes off to college. Half way through the semester, having foolishly squandered all of his money on his girlfriend, he calls home. "Dad," he says, "You won't believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here at Hendrix that will teach our dog, Ole' Blue how to talk!" "That's amazing," his Dad says. "How do I get Ole' Blue in that program?" "Just send him over here with $1,000" the young Arkie says "and I'll get him in the course." So, his Father sends the dog and $1,000. About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again runs out. The boy calls home. "So how's Ole' Blue doing son?" his Father asks. "Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm," he says, "but you just won't believe this -- they've had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!" "Read!?" says his Father, "No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?" "Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class." The money promptly arrives. The Arkie and his girlfriend are able to buy enough marijuana to last the whole semester. But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year, his Father will find out the dog can neither talk, nor read. Even though he was always pretty much able to lie his way out of trouble, the Arkie asked his girlfriend to help him think of a really good lie to tell his Dad. She very quickly came up with a plan for him. So she has him shoot the dog. When he arrives home at the end of the year, his Father is all excited. "Where's Ole' Blue? I just can't wait to see him read something and talk!" "Dad," the boy says, "I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ole' Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually does". "Then Ole' Blue turned to me and asked, so, is your Daddy still messing around with that little redhead who lives down the street?" The Father went white and exclaimed, "I hope you shot that lying **** dog before he talks to your Mother!" "I sure did, Dad!" "That's my boy!" The kid married his girlfriend, they both went on to law school in Fayetteville , he became Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States , and you already know what a lying ***** his girlfriend turned out to be!
  16. Fox Mustang: Next Purchase

    Just line the gasket up so the bolt holes in the middle are right. If it has the option to plug the egr (steel piece in the gasket), do that. You don't need an adjustable fuel pressure regulator. That was a bandaid for not being able to tune cars with a stock ecu. You don't have that problem.

    I sent you a PM with my number and a text. 2:30 at my work or somewhere between there and Hendersonville after 3
  19. 2010 Camaro SS

    I'm sure they would be fine. Plenty of V owners put 1000's in their cars that only make 500 rwhp.
  20. 2010 Camaro SS

    I have 850's in my V making mid to high 6xx rwhp. I would probably be limited to low 600's on e85, but my car has more fuel pressure under boost than a camaro is setup for. I would also probably reccomend 850's. If you ever plan to boost it, you'll want 1000's.
  21. 2010 Camaro SS

    No, that’s fine.
