Information:
Bought the car for $1000. Tranny was shot, so I swapped in a rebuilt AOD in my driveway. I added a HO upper/tb/egr, K&N, U/D pulleys, HO headers, Mustang H-pipe, Flowmaster Pre-Delta 2-chambers, and 2.5" tailpipes. I sanded and primered the crap-brown paint and dyed the crap-brown interior black. I've made aluminum plates for the clock, oil/water gauges, cig lighter/ashtray area, switch panel and door lock panel.


 

Future Plans:
Finish the HO I've had for about a year, with home-ported E7 heads, some sort of cam, and ported intakes; get the car painted, either completely jet black or a deep blue, later to add some Boss stripes; replace most of the interior, like door panels, carpet, seats, and get a dash cover; get some analog gauges to replace the stock digital ones, also with a custom aluminum panel in which to set them; find someplace to get the hub extension for my steering wheel so I can get the damn thing on; and in my dreams, a blower and nitous kit :D
