  1. For Sale: 1965 Mustang Fastback

    Cashiers check and you can drive it home. Heck, I’ll even deliver it to your house with a big bow on it!
  2. For Sale: 1965 Mustang Fastback

    Well, Leslie and I have decided it is time to get the ‘65 fastback restomod into the hands of someone who will truly enjoy it versus being pretty much the garage ornament it has become over the past few years. Vehicle Overview 1965 Mustang Fastback (original V8 car) Garage Kept since paint/bodywork was completed in 2005. Patriot Blue Pearl Clearcoat w/Diamond White Pearl racing stripes. 393 (351W-based) stroker engine, 9.5:1 CR (balanced and blueprinted shortblock), Edelbrock Victor Jr aluminum heads, Comp cams 270 retrofit had roller, CompCams roller rockers. Edelbrock Performer RPM airgap intake, Holley 650 dp carb. MSD 6AL w/matching distributor. 4-row aluminum radiator w/electric flex-a-lite thermostatic controlled fan. Optima red-top battery. T56 6speed transmission Pro5.0 shifter New McLeod RST twin disc clutch/pressure plate New McLeod aluminum flywheel Cable clutch conversion Built Ford 8-inch rear w/3.80 gear Detroit Locker Moser 28-spline forged axles Boxed steel subframe connectors Centerline billet “Mohave” 17x8 wheels New Michelin tires Global West upper/lower control arms, stabilizer bars and sway bar. Total Control Products adjustable front coilovers/shocks and rear adj shocks Flaming River manual rack and pinion Custom white interior, dark blue carpet Retro sound radio w/usb and bluetooth inputs JLP instrument cluster w/Autometer gauges Flaming River tilt steering column Lecarra steering wheel ~2000 miles put on the car since 2005 Only notable things that I feel a new owner might want to address is replacing the drivers side front floor pan and redo the sheet metal over the transmission area under the dash. (No rust, just my terrible welding skills leaves much to be desired). Drivers side rear floor pan seems to have been patched by the previous owner and I never got around to doing anything about it. $34,000 OBO

    It just needs to be on someone’s garage other than mine!
  8. NewEST DD 1985 LTD WagonTF????

    Needs some foxbody 5.0 emblems on the fenders!
  9. NewEST DD 1985 LTD WagonTF????

    Congrats, Matt. That will be a fun little ride!
  10. Back in the game I guess..

    Some people cannot help living in the past and using outdated data to support a modern arguement. There was a guy online the other day suggesting old foxbody performance improvement modifications would have the same effect on a Coyote-powered S550.

    LOL!
  12. Random thought thread

    Considering the paint issues he openly described, this seems to be a fair price. Yes, you see ‘03-04 Cobras going for more, but they are usually heavily modded or pristine garage queens that seek top dollar. It’s at least worth checking out, IMO.
  13. Makes sense. I also had a good experience with Dynospeed in the past. They tuned my 2001 Lightning and 2010 twin-turbo GT500.
  14. Josh at Dynospeed certainly knows his GM stuff, but why would you go four hours to Memphis for a tune when you have DBR right down the road in Spring Hill who are equally proficient at tuning GM stuff and turning out some incredible LS-based cars?

    Wear a kidney belt if you do.
  16. Back in the game I guess..

    What’s this I hear about the ZL1 being traded in and a ZL1 1LE taking its place?

  18. I echo what Matt is saying. I admire your desire to tune your vehicle yourself and, in the long run, I’m sure that ability will both expand your knowledge and save you money. That being said, there is a lot involved in tuning a modern vehicle correctly, and it seems like the learning curve is quite steep at this point of your self-education. As Matt has already pointed out, you do have the luxury of local subject-matter experts to glean information from which should be immensely helpful. However, it looks like you’re also taking YouTube advice from folks you don’t even know and inter-mixing it with the local resources. I’m sure I’m pointing out the obvious, but no two people tune the same way. In my opinion, it might serve you better to pick one source for tuning advice and stick with it. Or bite the bullet and take it to someone who is already trained and proficient in tuning GM vehicles to work their magic. Otherwise, I see less enjoyment and more frustration in the future. I’d like to think I’m speaking for everyone when I say I WANT you to get your car sorted out asap so you can enjoy all the time/money/effort you’ve put into it. In any case, good luck and godspeed!
  19. 2010 Camaro SS

    So, when you get the Camaro sorted out and running the way you want it to, when are you going to install the trailer hitch? I figure if you do end up getting set of sticky tires on an extra set of wheels, you’ll need something to haul them in, as I doubt they’ll fit in your trunk on that car.
  20. It’s just my opinion, but I think given all the changes you’ve made, you should consider taking the car somewhere that has a dyno on-hand and has extensive experience tuning high-performance GM vehicles. I understand it might not be cheap, but it could be money well spent if it allows you to enjoy the car instead of continually chasing your tail trying to figure out what is going on.

    Thoughts...?
  23. Yeah, I meant when you pulled them recently, not when they went in the motor. Just looks like a big gap. Could just be an optical illusion.
