That’s one sharp car! Congratulations to your son. The new mustangs are awesome! I bought a 91 5.0 new. Took it to the track with just 47 miles on it. Ran 14.20 all day long. I wanted to buy a grand national but I work at Ford Motor Company so my new cars are Fords. Speaking of which, if anybody is going to buy a Ford I’d be happy to get them an X plan!
These are great looking and running cars.
I used to own a few Mustangs in my younger days. I still miss my Black 1990 GT 5-speed. Just plain fun to drive and imo the toghestest engine Ford ever produced!
I had an '88 LX 5.0 5-speed with Edelbrock heads and intake, a Vortec S-Trim and some other goodies.
Never ran on slicks because I had the stock 8.8 rear.
It went 12.008 at 123+ at Englishtown back in 2005ish.
Sold it to a great guy that is re-doing it.
I had the stock axles with a re-packed differential. All new clutches and steels, 2 used clutches crammed in to tighten it up.
Was fun trying to get the S-Spring back in, but it always spun both tires right away.
Had a friend break the stock axles with slicks and considerably less HP than I was making, so stayed off slicks.
The friend that purchased the car from me just upgraded the diff and 31 spline axles.
