    ...I have 252 miles now on the 347 I built for the LX in 2003. Not bad, 19.4 miles/year. The clutch isn't even broken in per Spec...

    After taking over a year to finish all the "upgrades" I kind of lost interest in it. I drove it maybe once a month after it was complete. This lasted about a year. I have been wanting something newer for awhile so I sold the coupe in July.

    The Capri is slow...make that no going. The wife's '93 has gotten a shove in HP dept. Chris' Car Doc made some magic with the tune and now I'm just trying to finish up some details before finally being done with it. It's a really nice cruiser that should hold its own with a few Shelby's and SS's. But hopefully I can get motivated (and some time off from work) to make some progress on the Capri.
    There's a thin line between hobby and mental illness

    Mine is pretty much complete, (Well, there is never a complete), but I've begun to think of selling it. The boy wants a WRX and the wife wants a Jeep again, so thinking about trading/selling it for one of those. I'm the only one who enjoys the fox.

    Active. Bullitt is still stock but i did break 49k miles!

    Drove out to Savannah in July for Bullitt nationals and to run Roebling Road. Also ran tail of the dragon on the North Carolina/ Tennessee border on the way up there.

    Mustang only show at Kemah this weekend. Hoping to go run MSR Houston in November and go out to Kerrville to run three sisters as well.

    It's a blackhole. Started off changing the fluids a couple weeks after I bought it. Yanked the motor when I found a ton of rust in the cooling system and used that as an excuse to purchase a motor, trans, turbo, 5 lug Cobra brakes, Maximum Motorsports front setup, 04 Cobra IRS and redo the interior. It has been sitting for 2.5 years because of rusty coolant.

    Sounds like you might have to finally fill up the gas tank here soon. I usually do not get more than 255 miles per tank on my Mustangs.

    I've completed my first high-hp build and am about to build my first transmission.

    Then I'm gonna go whoop up on all those Porsches that hurt my Coyote's feelings.
    My name is Collin and I have a problem.

    Make sure your Mustang is smoking pretty badly when you do it. It helps make the Porsche owner feel even lesser a human when a old smoking car beats them. I did that to a brand new 911 Turbo years ago on 290 because my dipstick tube was not fully seated, ah his face, it was priceless.
