They can be cheap, but only when they are in stock..

One is coming up from Houston.. and hopefully tomorrow.


His stang is getting a complete overhaul, new suspension, new brakes, some body work, fresh paint, new radio, new tires; and it will stay stock looking. I think the shop is charging him $14k for the work; so he can take it on trips and enjoy it, it has been in his garage for about 20 years. Not sure when it will be done, but I will get more pics then. I am in line for it, I have an older sister, my mom, my mom's brother, and about 3 older cousins ahead of me age wise.
