New Guy from Missouri......

hello everybody, My name is Joey, but most of my friends call me Short Bus....hence the screen name...anyways I am the proud owner of 1988 Foxbody Mustang GT Convertible. I am 32 years old, and attend college full-time. I have wanted me a foxbody convertible 5.0 for over 16 years, but either life wouldnt allow it or i just couldnt ever find the right one.....I actually started out with a hatchback that me and my dad picked up four days before he passed away. He knew i always wanted a convertible one, so i ended up trading the shell of mine for a convertible shell. I put my drivetrain, exhaust and few mods into the convertible and now drive it daily. I have decided to completely redo everything on the car from the ground up and it be a rolling memorial to my father(he was a navy veteran) as well as supporting the current troops....Well what better way to do all this than with a convertible mustang. The car already has a few mods. CAI, h-pipe, bbk headers, dual-friction clutch, aluminum driveshaft, aluminum 3 core radiator, 1.6 ratio roller rockers, an A9P Computer, Mass Air Conversion and a short shifter. Oh yeah almost forgot that it has a professional 1.5/2 inch complete front/rear drop/handling kit on it as well......I have a list of other things that i would like to do to it, but i am currently building a 49 dodge rat rod truck, and as soon as i finish the truck i will be ripping into the stang hardcore hopefully. Its not the greatest looking, but it sure sounds good. Whoever owned the car prior to me and the guy i got it from, needs to stay away from cars period....Sorry so long winded, but just wanted to introduce myself and my stang as well as introduce what it means to me..........

Re: New Guy from Missouri......

Thankz everybody for the welcomes, and I am from Springfield, MO......and yeah i am sure my dad would be proud, cause when me and him picked it up, he loved it....When I started the car up, to put it on the tow dolly to bring it home, his eyes were the biggest i had ever seen in my 32 years.......It will mostly be in his Honor, but will also use it to support our troops, all of them, past, present, and future.......Will be a little bit before i get started, cause of the rat rod build, but gives me a little time to work out the build on paper, and work awith a few friends to get a drawing conept of it, to kinda get an idea of how it will look, or at least how i want it to look.....
