Actually vinyl is all in with the hipsters iirc...

I don't think kids do know what a vinyl record is.. It's even funnier when you ask them who Michael Jackson is and they give this blank stare.

Everyone should know Michael Jackson. Whether a fan or not he's still talked about so much and even made fun of still on shows like South Park (love that show lol)

All of them are beyond even 1k. The cast iron block will be the strongest but the teksid is the best one to get. What I will be using whenever I finally start building a motor for this car or whatever I get next...

the king of pop....but why the hell would I want to know anything about that kid touching freak. I might add that I am 21 so I probably dont fit the ”kids” that you are talking about lol In addition, to keep this post some what helpful, I would say foxbody all the way. Parts are cheap, the needed skills to work on them are minimal, and making scary fast ( all opinion on what scary fast to an individual) does not take alot of money; however you must to willing to take the time to fix them. Things will break, leak, and squeak unless you are proactive about it.

When a terminator is an option, the answer is always terminator. Then again I don't care for fox bodys so...

What is your knowledge of these cars?

What do you want to do with it?

Post mods of both cars.

For me its the Fox and its not even close if everything is true.

I would keep my 03 and build one up. You are right though, a good fox is hard to find and since they are gaining age little nit picky things start to malfunction on them.

You can still find lower milage 4 banger stangers with blown motors/transmissions/both that were garage kept old ppl cars for the last 20-25 years. I found 2 recently when I was kicking around picking up a project and they are the perfect Fox build candidates as they will have never been beaten on/raced, they are dirt cheap and its pretty much the same starting with a clean 4 banger because everything is coming out anyway.

However, any proper buildup is going to get you near the price for a good used Coyote anyway.

Scotty, I've been looking around at used coyotes in my area. The V6s around here are high teens and low 20s. Haven't found any decent GTs lower than that lol
