The gold mine find. Me,my wife and step son were on our way to the movies one evening and there it was.shining in the night.Our soon to be 88 mustang Gt 5.0.I wanted to stop and look at it then but my wife said no because we'd be late for the movies .So we kept on driving to the movies .Well at the movie all i could do is think about leaving to go look at that mustang, finally the movies was done now we can go look at the mustang. On the way home we stop and look at the car. The car looked to be pretty nice and had , had a Lil work done to it already.It had a fiberglass front clip ,after market 5 star rims, a 410 Detroit locer rear end ,an A BBK cold air intake kit plus Plentium,and a after market cam.After reading that an looking at the car i had to call on it an come test drive it. When test driving it it was like meeting my wife over again (I fell in love again) .When he told me the price on it;i told him to pull it from the road because I'll be back in a second with cash in hand.He told me he needed the money to pay a house payment and get somethings for the kids. I told him thank you! With a smile from ear to ear when me and my wife went to pick up my (our) new car.After getting the keys my wife said , I'll fellow you so don't drive fast, My step son was like i was riding with Ford(ya i said Ford). Me and my son got into the car and pulled out to the street real slow and straightened up the car and dumped the clutch . thought I'd let the neighbors see the car do one last burnout!
So far I've had my buddy Vic put in new floorboards and me and him put in new racing seats and carpet. Things in store this winter for the punkin is a GT40 kit top half(heads,and cam kit),some interior work,an new door/hatch rubbers,an door hinges,cage and a surprise paint job and design,that I've got my best friend DJ working on.DJ is one of the best free hand drawers that i know not only a good friend .When this gets all done ,this will be my dream car.It would never get done how i want it if it wasn't for my wife(Jodie) letting me spend extra money on it.I really got to give thanks to my 12yr old stepson,Shane for taking his extra time to help with the car instead of wanting to set and play the WII game or run and play with his buddies on nice days.I got a question for him though. Does you helping have anything to do with you getting the car when and if you finish high school?I also have to thank all of my friends JIM,VIC,JOE and my wife before she got pregnant.Plus that put a stop on the 3RD mustang that were working on for now , but not for ever since we got a new family member coming soon .Which means that3RD call you'll see in the up coming days.
