Default Hello

I'm a new member to the Midwest Mustang Association. I was a previous member to All Ford Mustangs Forum. I've became a member for a number of reasons. I've loved Mustangs all my life having owned four. My first car was my mom's 65 coupe. My first new car was a 84 GT. My third was an 86 LX Notch with the 5.0 and the last one was a 05 GT Prem. I let the 05 go in 2010 when the economy was tough and I needed an economical car so I'm now driving a Fiesta. I wouldn't consider myself with an extremely high level of mechanical apptitude but I do know my way around with many levels of mechanical ability.

My 15-yr old son is now looking for a car and really likes the Fox-Bodies; I can't blame him because I consider my 86 LX 5.0 one of the best and strongest Mustangs I've owned. Together we're looking for a car that we can both work on together.

There was a time I was eating, breathing, and living Mustangs; I regret that the past 20 years have been devoid of that with exception to owning my 05 GT. I did some work to my 05 like putting a CAI, shift-kit, Cat-Back exhaust, and several other upgrades.

I live in the Chicago area and we are actively seeking a nice fox body to purchase and work on it.. Again, my son is making this purchase and has limited funds. We're looking at a car in the range of $4K to $6K.

My user ID is my state plate ID I had on my 05 and now have on my Fiesta (I know, I still get comments but I can't relinguish these plates).

Thanks for having me.
