Anyone here got a foxbody mustang?

I still have my 92 'vert. Hasn't left the garage in almost 5 months thanks to Winter. Hopefully have it back out this coming week.
Sold my notch project last summer.

It seems like a no brainer, despite the fact of me having one or not using oem body parts seems to suggest having one. However, my friend said he had no issues with an aftermarket bumper cover fitment. What's mfbs consensus on using an aftermarket hood and bumper cover?

me and germany never see eye to eye when it comes to repairing cooling systems on my own. i finished the task of fixing the water pump and thermostat housing and then the T connector broke inside of another hose and screwed me over. luckily i was able to limp home and get it parked before damage could occur. I decided to take it to a shop so they can fix it. I don't mind doing the work but i hate doing it in an apartment parking lot. So far they are almost done with it and said I'm $300 deep asked if i was cool i said yes sir. hopefully i have it back soon.
biggest headache with working on this car was the damn side skirts the previous owner put on. I appreciate wanting to do something different on the E36, and I do like the smooth more flat looking sides but I can't lift my car without having to get it on some wood then getting a jack under it. and it can only be held up in specific spots so that was a pain in the ass. anyway. should have this thing back soon. I will be ordering M3 sides if I don't blow too much getting it fixed then it's back to the M3 cams and tune that was supposed to happen this week.

I acknowledge your Barvarian coolant struggles. May proper circulation be with her.

All this focus on the truck, been ignoring the vette.



Ran errands in her all day.  Still as sweet as ever!

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

Ear to ear grin man.  Hard to imagine a more visceral driving experience than when I'm wheeling the vette.



This fucker should be a close second.  Almost done getting metal worked and then it's back home to finish!

I love the thought of running errands in an insanely impractical old 'Vette. I would be so happy to see someone bombing around to the shops in a car like that.

Think I'm going to get this later this week. https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/658129490/overview/

I offered 15500 and the dude emails me this:

"Wholesale value of the car alone is $17,700
Retail value is : $20,450
The selling price is $16,588  plus tax and licensing fees (roughly 12% additional) if you have a pre-approved loan thru your own bank.

Thanks
Sam"

I hate that dealers these days don't accept haggling.

I fixed my wife's crumpled up Kia door today. Switching our power window/power lock/power mirror to a manual bare bones door shell was a bitch. It's done now so I am happy. Having liability insurance has its ups and downs hah.

I have sadly today been reminded of when I was a child begging my mam to let me buy a car from the autotrader magazine. I had spotted an ad for a blue Ford Mondeo with big wheels and cool stickers. They wanted 900 She said no of course only for me years later to learn that the car was infact an early spare ex BTCC rolling shell. The one that got away.
