New Pony in the Stable

Well, last night I was able to pick up my daily driver finally. A 1993 LX Hatch 4 banger auto. 81k miles on it, one owner car. Bought it from the original owners. This is going to be my daily driver while I get the cobra and 81 under way. This one is going to be a stock restoration...or a resto mod as I will upgrade a few things like brakes and suspension. But, it is going to stay a 4 banger and just get prettied up.

Anyhow, here are some pics of it. I figure it will be on the road late next week once I get paid and get it registered. Looking forward to pushing the 87 button on the pumps instead of 93. Going to be a great feeling.

Also, don't mind the hood and lights. The hood is open as the cable is broke, so I haven't shut the hood...and the lights are out because they were low on fluid so I took them out to dump out the 3 quarts that were in the light housings and replace the bulbs.

Trying to decide if I should go 5.0 in the 81 or the supercoupe...may just come get the shortblock from you anyhow and work it for another project. It will be a few weeks none the less.

I'll have to keep that in mind...or, I could see if the dude on here would be willing to part with the turbo kit he is selling as a complete motor. I wouldn't mind turboing it though and making it a 25+ mpg daily driver with some pep.

I got mine from a stealership and probably came out better than from a private party since it was reef blue, had a mint no options black interior and fairly low miles for an at the time 11 year old car (101k). Only downside is that it was a 4-banger. Rob got me looking for another one with this thread though, lol.

Come ride with me I'll prove it. California special is just an appearance package. By the way my 07 Gt gets 25+ also.

Eleventy billion dollars. Muhahahaha....

He got a decent deal on it really...it has/had a few minor mechanical/maint/paint issues...but nothing majorly problematic or hard or expensive to fix.

Pretty sure I can do that in my Jeep. And I bet I can even row it through gears faster, even with my long *** shifter throw

Cool Re: New Pony in the Stable

Congrats on the 4 pots!

My 2nd Mustang was a 80 Coupe 2.3L, 4 speed, with an aftermarket moonroof. White with Red interior. Toward the end of her days with me, she developed the Fred Flintstone option (rusted through hole in the drivers side floorboard). Loved that car (as I have all my Mustangs).

Ford/ Mustang definitely need to offer a normally asperated 4 cyl powerplant - ASAP if not sooner.

MPG sells cars these days & the current Ford fleet is lacking . . . .
