Hey guys. Texas boy here.

Hey guys. My name is Jonathan. I have a '94 Ranger Splash 4.0/auto and a '95 Mustang GT/AODE. I was planning on building the Mustand but given that it has only 35k original miles on it I have decided not to. I've sold off a lot of my Mustang stuff but still have a few building blocks for the Ranger. I'm looking to build a Windsor for it but I'm not quite sure how big yet. Probably just a regular old 408. I do have a nice built reverse manual/transbrake 4r70w that I will be using and a PI 3,500 stall converter. Will probably be running on bottle but leaving the transbrake out of the picture.

The Ranger is a sentimental thing, my Grand Dad bought it new back in '94. I've always wanted to do something fun with it so here it goes. It's kind of rough, hail dents dings etc but I love it just like it is.

Cheers!
Jon

Not much to see. It's a semi-beat up old Ranger that has taken me to the lake and back since I was 10 and later on tought me how to drive. It has gotten me where I need to go for the last 8 years. Like I said, I love it and I'm pretty sure it loves me. I have been adding transmission fluid for the last 50,000 miles. I have estimated that with the amount that I have added I could have put a fresh trans trans in it by now. I have been waiting for it to give up the ghost for the last 6 years and damned if it just won't die.

Gah, I really want a 94-95 GT to play around with. I have been looking for one, but people want too much for them.

Welcome to R-F!!
Funny, I was just shopping for one like yours for a daily driver. :)

My '95 is pretty useless. It has to few miles to drive everyday and it is to nice to cut up and have fun with. It hasn't left the garage in almost 6 months. I found it in factory stock zero scratch never abused or left out old man condition with 27k miles in late '07 for... prepare to be pissed... $4,800. I had the cash so I bought it. It's sweet. It has an automatic and 2.73s. Aside from the same car with a ragtop I think it might be the slowest V8 powered Mustang produced since the early '80s.

There is no might be about it. It is the slowest V8 car since the 80s haha. But I want one to build as a street warrior. Just a ton cheaper then building mine.

It's pretty though. It's even equipped with the most whored out common SN95 color ever - Laser Red. I used to hate the color but like I said I just couldn't pass it up for the price. I bought it with plans to drive it every day and rack up miles on it. It didn't work out that way. You know how it goes.

Me too. Thanks.

Here are some crappy pics of my old GT.

EDIT: The reason it is sitting nose high in some of the pics is because it was lacking a motor.
