    Uncle told me he found a 95GT for 2grand. I was thinking of selling my car and buying a blower and stuff for it IF its in good shape. Does that sound like a smart idea?

    come back to the thread when you have an idea of what the car is...we cant tell you what is and isnt a good idea without knowing any info on the car besides the year. if it has 25,000 miles or 250,000 miles and yadda yadda yadda.

    and what ever happened to the purple mustang?

    I highly doubt you would be able to just buy it and supercharge it as it is a 2k car. But, do a rebuild (bore it out, heads, pistons, rings, etc) and other maintenance stuff to support the blower, and it should be pretty sweet.......

    And a hell of a lot cheaper than a Termy.

    It might not be the most reliable thing in the world and while it's being rebuilt, what else are you going to drive?

    My boss just bought a 95 gt for 2995 with 145k on the clock. Car is in really good shape, sounds good and the leather is still nice.

    hell fets even if that sob is high miles just buy it, beat the every loving shit out of it then pull it and drop in a 351w stroker. Fuck superchargering a 302. You will have a very stout motor and it wont be as obvious as a blower sitting ontop of the 302. If i could do it over again or if i found one that cheap thats what i would do. all motor power>power adder

    Why would you sell yours to buy another for the same price? You would gain about the same putting a blower on your car as you would a 95.
