    Ok guys so just sold my 89 fox and picked up a 98 Mustang Gt. It only has 94k miles on it and the previous owner had it for the past ten years and had it since it had 50k miles so it's in really nice condition. It has some upgrades done to the suspension, flowmaster exhaust, PI swap from an 04 GT, Cobra front brakes upgrade, obviously the exterior mods, and the guy was sponsored by steeda so it has a bunch of steeda stuff. But enough with the background here it is, let me know what u guys think....

    I spy a Jack Roush autograph. I don't really like the wheels but the rest looks pretty good!

    Yup it is, the guy got it signed by him on his birthday. He signed it in two places, and im not a fan of them either but if you have seen any of my build threads then you know they will be changed immediately. I'm sort of a wheel freak, can't have enough of them.[​IMG][/URL][/IMG]
