    Well last weekend i got my new car. Its a 98 rio red gt with vortech supercharger, bassani x-pipe w/ cats, bassani cat back, some suspension upgrades, fully loaded, manual, and 76000 miles. All that for $8000. Yesterday i picked up my heads and intake for $444 of ebay from a 04 gt and putting them on in the next few weeks. Ill post some picks of the car and what do yall think about the deal i got on the car. Also im glad the site is up and running again.

    sounds like you got a hell of a deal, but i would just build a new motor with a forged bottom end or use a PI shortblock to keep the compression down to get the most out of the blower...just my opinion though.

    Awesome find. It's amazing how much difference in value mustangs are around here than other places. That car would go for $11 around my neck of the woods. :eek:

    Thanks everybody. I got really lucky on the car b/c the guy needed to get a truck and didnt want to deal with anybody so he sold it cheap. Now i have to get rid of my old car, so that i can buy new parts for the new car. Ill post pics tomorrow.
