Bought A 92 5.0 Mustang Today

& I am really regretting it. needs a a ton of work. Got it pretty cheap. but i would rather save up 2-3k and buy one with a good body and everything else and build from there. The thing is pretty fast though. It needs a few things before i will be comfortable driving it. the brakes suck. I think they need bled

I suggested a ProCharger, headers, catback, gears, converter and shift kit. Then just add some drag radials and its an 11 second car!

The worse it looks, the more races you will get. Hence the term "sleeper".

But if you really do regret buying it, I will gladly buy it from ya. As long as it runs, I can do wonders with that thing!
