So, I have a story...

Okay, so let me start with two years ago.

My brother and I needed a car to get around with, so (being the teenage boys that we were) we went and bought an '84 Camaro Z28, whose engine promptly blew up two weeks later. We decided to keep it and see if we could fix the engine.

Fast forward to last year. I need another car for myself, so being the teenage guy that I was, I went and found a '95 Mustang V6. I loved the car a whole lot, but didn't know too much about mechanics at the point. I ignored some serious warning signs that the car was going to die soon if I kept driving it without repairing it, and I blew a headgasket. Sold it to a mechanic for $500.

Fast forward AGAIN to about a week ago, and I'm futzing around on Craigslist when I see that same '95 Mustang all fixed up and for sale at a low-ish price. At this point, I had already moved on and bought another (more solid) '99 Mustang (because I love my horses). So I see it, and kind of laugh a bit when I see that he fixed up the engine and was selling it. I then notice that at the bottom of the ad, he mentioned that he was looking for an older project car, like a trans-am or a camaro.

Well, one thing led to another, and I got my first mustang back with a fixed engine. However, the engine had the 4.3 conversion, and is pretty beefy now.

And now I have two Mustangs.

Also, I did the math, and after buying the camaro and mustang and the value drop of losing two engines and the deal that I made with the guy, I had paid $100 for this mustang. It's not perfect, seeing as it needs a bit of TLC, body work and a good tune, but that's less than you can get in scrap metal. So how did I do with this little adventure, guys? Good deal?
