New Ride

i know im hardly ever on here anymore, im working all the time and i hardly have time to go on my computer, sorry for abandoning my extended family...anywho...as some of you know i sold the 88 ranger, i had it on Craigslist for two hours and one of 5speedin2.3's friends came and bought it, so i wanted a fox platform vehicle, and i got one

1978 Ford Fairmont Futura
200-6 1bbl C4
one owner car, the guy i bought it from purchased it about 6 months ago from the estate sale of the original owner. AM 8 track, very clean interior...
the guy gave me a rear axle with 3.73 gears, a 302 K-member, GT brakes and suspension, orignal sales brochures and original shop manuals and an NOS aluminum rear bumper

plans are mild 302 c4 or aod and gt mustang suspension, sleeper looking still
