My Dads '79 DUW??

I just got a few pics from my Dad with his 'stang(acutally my stepmoms, she the original owner)
its a 1979, with a 2.8 v6 I think the motor was only in production for like 6 months. He just put some kinda special intake and 4 barrel carb on it, used to have a 2 barrel.little bit of a project car.... any way on to the pics

'79 V6.....never heard of that before. If it's as rare as it's seems, it's a keeper then.

first year for the fox body stang

i believe the 2.8L came in a couple of the Mustang II's before they dropped out of production, ive also heard of it in some early Rangers i believe (yes a 2.8, not mistaking it for a 2.9)

even 390cfm sounds a bit bigger than stock

either way, its a cool ride, how often do you see a 79 stang, then one thats it great shape, then one with a 2.8, then with a 4bbl carb on it?
