    She’s starting to clean up pretty nice! Clear coat is faded in some spots, scratches in some spots, but it’s a 26 year old car, and I’m planning on painting it this summer. I still have the other side of the car to clean, but it’s coming along! I ordered wheel spacers to make the rear wheels...

    Bicycle trailer help?

    Well I’m looking to refine my kayak trailer, my current setup is a ghetto prototype that is a little on the bulky side, and has some rolling resistance. I want to use bicycle wheels on a new setup, and it’s going to be a simple design. I’m thinking of using two bicycle rear wheels on an axle...

    Those are some awesome cars! As far as fords go I’ve had an 88 bronco xlt, 97 ranger, this mustang, and my 18 focus st. Fords seem to be my go to cars the last few years, before that it was Chevy, and before that it was Honda’s. Bicycles are much easier on the wallet, and I put more miles on my...

    Yard mustang

    Maybe if it was a stick shift car, but I’m going for a more grand touring, grandpa car feel. I’m thinking of going the other route and adding more sound deadening mats underneath the carpet, this is probably going to be a pretty loud car if I do all the engine stuff. I really like the interior...

    I’ll probably never go that in depth. I figure I’m going to replace all the suspension first, then get a 3.73 gear, and drive it like that for awhile. This is my weekend warrior car, and it’s much much slower than my daily so I’m sure engine mods are gonna happen at some point. I’m eyeing the...

    Yard mustang

    That fox is so sick! I used to have a 1977 yard corvette, that was really easy and cheap to fix up. It had a 383 stroker with aftermarket heads, and some other stuff when I got it. I drove it every day reliably for about a year and a half before I sold it. It was expensive to drive tho, it only...

    Update! She runs and drives! Not only that but it seems to only need simple things (fuel filter, battery) hopefully this keeps going smoothly. I definitely see some suspension work in the near future, along with some headers and exhaust. I may one day swap the heads and cam, but that’s way...

    I really like those 80s ones. A friend of mine has had a mercury Capri from that era. It really rips. Have you looked at 90s mustangs much? I’ve seen them sell as low as 500 bucks running. They aren’t rare, and not too many people want them that much. It’s only a matter of time before people...

    This is right before I parked it. It will clean up this nice, it always does.

    Yard mustang

    That would be a bummer, I don’t wanna take the heads off until i can afford performance heads. I don’t think it’s that though, it’s got torque for days, it’s just slow because the gear in the rear end seems ridiculous, my previous car was an 02 z28 with an ls1 (handled like a boat) and my...

    Yard mustang

    My wife and I knew it was going to be parked for awhile so we drained the gasoline and removed the battery. It ran pretty good when we parked it, but it overheats sometimes. It isn’t the cleanest car in the world, but it’s definitely in better shape than most of them. I feel pretty confident...
