I've been a big mustang fan for quite some time even though I currently do not own one. I figured I share my past ones so here it goes.

2004 GT

First mustang, only had exhaust, intake and a short shifter.



2001 Cobra

This was my baby. I recently sold it to a buddy of mine who lives close so I see it quite often but I still miss it.

The basics were, forged internals, nitrous and built sra among other things.



1987 GT Hatch

This was a piece of shit. I owned it for about a month.



2003 Cobra

3.4 whipple, built T56, stock irs, etc etc

I had this one about a month too before it started giving me problems. A couple of cylinders were very low on psi when I checked and it was smoking like a chimney. Even with it's problems it ran like a raped ape.



2003 Mach 1

PISC, full exhaust.

Pretty quick car but got rid of it after a couple of months.



And on to my next project



1990 Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T

Sadly it won't be here until about August of this year but it's paid in full sitting in Japan waiting for it to be legal. (25 year old rule)

It's an auto right now but will have a 5 speed put in once it gets over here. Between this car and guns, I will be broke.

Nice rides.

I'm curious, what's the process to import an R32 legit? I'm well aware of what happened with Motorex.

Thanks

On the buyers side it's simple. Just find a legit company to import it and be in a state that doesn't require any extra work to be done to the car to make it legal.

Once a car is 25 years old or older it's Federally legal to be imported into the U.S. A company has to be a RI (registered importer) to be able to import one and with the company I went through they take care of all of the work including getting through customs. Once it's here you register it like any other car. Here in Tx I have to go through a couple extra steps but it shouldn't be a problem. In CA, they require extra work to be done to the car to become CA compliant. I think it's like an extra 15k+ for the work.

When I get the car it will receive a FL title since that's where it's being imported to. Once I get it I will just have to transfer it to a TX title.

Or you can buy an R32 already here on the cheap but it won't be legal. lol

there is a 68 Fastback in my area for 8600...

Tempting to grab it and put it over in the corner. My buddy helping me on my 95 Cobra would have a shit fit though as that 8k could go towards finishing my 95 where we just need to get cage, accessories, kmember, pro-m setup, and put it in.

Also got the 05 to do.

But how often do running nonRusted to shit 68 Fastbacks pop up? Could be craigslist scam but then again... maybe not. A good shell for a restomod would be awesome.

I'll play....

My first mustang I ever purchased. It was my one last final "project car"

15 years later....




My second Mustang I purchased. It was about 10 years old with 36,000 miles on it. Driven by a little old lady to the bars on the weekend with her girlfriends.
I bought it while halfway through the '66 project.


After a "few" mods. Eibach Pro springs, FR500 wheels and tires, exhaust, Cobra R hood and bumper, Light bar, ect...

I later added the S281 rear wing and repainted it.
The day it died:


It got caught between 3 women drivers. As my Boy's always say, "Female drivers, no survivors!" I drove it almost 10 years.

It's replacement after a loonnnngggg wait. I had to borrow my Son's '95 GT conv. while he was in Afghanistan, then borrow a friends truck for 10 weeks when he got home and them my daughters old beater '98 Honda CR-V.


And speaking of my Son's car (that I actually bought for him)

Of course he partook of a few too many spirits one night and stopped at the neighbors house on the way home to have a few donuts. the pine tree didn't play that shit!

But it's all back together again and it now has my old Cobra R hood on it. We have a Cobra bumper in the shop and we're waiting on this spring to paint the car.

And one that is quite fond in my memory. This was about 1982. It was actually my brothers car, but I found it for him and did all the wrenching on it and got to drive it like I stole it!

I don't know much about the older mustangs as they were never really my thing.

Any pics of the 95? My buddy has a 94 that we are currently working on.

Nice set of cars man. Sucks about all of the accidents, seems to be a fairly normal thing with mustangs. Luckily I've yet to be in a wreck with one of my babies. lol

That '15 looks great. how are you liking it? Any plans?

Just make payments! Actually, I went to Vegas last month and came home with enough winnings saved to get the windows tinted.
I'd like to be able to drop the $850 on a set of axle back Magnaflo's, but that payment thing.....
If you ever get the chance to drive one, just do it! You will understand all the hype and realize Ford just set the goal higher for themselves.

Will see if I can get them up.

Got a couple. Will probably have a bunch in a week or two after my new garage is done.


The 95 has most of the Maximum Motorsports track suspension. Aarms, rear lowers, panhard bar, coilovers. Subframes/cage hopefully this year. Cobra R hood. 3.73 31 spline rear with torsen trutrack. Cam/headers without tune are only mods.

When new to me it went like 15.2 @ 92mph. With current mods it is at 14.2 @ 98.xmph with a 2.1x 60 foot on a 315 wide Sumitomo street tires. It is being built for hopefully a 2016 Silver State Classic run.

Have a Dart SHP blocked 331 in garage that is 90% done, just gotta grab accessories and it is ready to go in with a new K-member. Probably gonna use Pro-m stand alone plug and play ECU.

They are popping up all around here and a few of my buddies have picked them up so I'll at least get to ride in one.

Skip the axle backs and throw a big blower on it. lol

Right on. Get rid of those garbage Sumitomos and get a drag radial or a better street tire and your times will drop considerably.

She'll be fun with the 331 in it for sure.

Probably never going to get drag radials as I dont plan to drag race. At best it will be road course stuff like Nitto NT01s or 05s. The Sumitomos are just a cheap year rounder for me which I dont care if I burn them off.

I only hit the drag strip to get an idea of baseline improvements on test/tune nights where I can get 3 or so runs for 20 bucks.

We have several road courses around and that is my plan for both my 95 and 05. Few HPDE sessions and track days. Maybe toy around with autocross a bit. Cars are mainly geared to back roads middle of nowhere twisties.

Not too long. If you know where to find them then it comes down to $. There aren't thousands of them for sale so you are limited but you can get them pretty cheap or go up into the mid 20's for a really nice one.

@TOO40GAWLF: Good looking mustangs man. I love the green one, what is that color called? The 11 looks good as well, what wheels are those?

@whiskerz: Chances are they are legal over there before the 25 year old rule unlike here in the U.S. I'm starting to see them every now and then now.

These are the only other pictures that I have since it's still in Japan. It's truly nothing fancy but it leaves a lot of room for modding.

Thanks Man. She's awesome to drive. I've been through the suspension completely and made a it a ( very, very mild) track capable car. An offroad X and a custom tune have woke up the power a bit, but the motor is otherwise stock.

NCCobra,

The 96 color is called Pacific Green. I should've kept the OEM, white 'waffle' rims. They looked the best with that body style.

The wheels on the '11 are Drag DR-37s, but are a common design of which there are a couple dozen brands with similar styles.

They are. Those skylines are like civics over here, they're everywhere. It will be getting a 5-speed swap once it arrives here first thing though. It was just a good price that I decided to go ahead and get it.
