Finally got the 97GT I bought with bad tranny on the road!!! Some of you may have saw pics in Newbie section. Those pics are of when I just added the newer 17" rims. Didn't run then, still had bad tranny. Got me another t-45, and decided new to put in a new flywheel, and clutch kit while the tranny was out. Got it running last Sunday and got it tagged and insured Tues. When I bought the car is didn't have a cat back, and the BBK h-pipe was messed up. Made my own exhaust using some old fox-body exhaust. Traded a buddy two 245/45 Goodyear tires for an old Dr gas x-pipe he had. Modified it to fit the 4.6 long-tubes and tucked it up in crossmember. Modified some flow tubes to position my Borla's ( I also traded for) near stock location. Everything fits nice, just have to figure out some tail-pipes. ANYway............

The motor has 93K miles and is stock besides long tube headers.. Other mods are, Steeda shifter, lift bars, 3.73's and the exhaust. Next on the list is a clay bar and wax(exterior detail), new head lights and tinted windows.

Here are pics of the car when I bought it,, to its current state..

I am debating on headlights right now. Can't decide if I want clear or black lights.. Right now leaning torward clears... Got the tire & rims for a deal and wanted to move up to 17's fromt eh waffles. Plus the waffels were missing 3 center caps, but had damn near new 16" Goodyear F1's. And I needed new tires for my T-bird sport wheels.. So it al worked out good. Got new tires for my T-bird and 17" rims for the stang all in one shot.. I like th white on white, man the brake pads on there are shot out, they dust the rims quikly!!

OH, and the stripes were coming off in the parking lot where I bought it while waiting for my friend to arrive with trailor.. :drunk:

if you plan on buying chrome or polished wheels, then get clears

If you plan on black wheels, then get some black ones

Doubt I wil go with black rims.. If I change rims it they will either be more white ones or chrome/polished.. Honestly I have been thinking of putting the 94-98 Cobra headlights with stock corners. But heck can get all six new for the about the same price as the 2 Cobra headlights.
