    [IMNew Orleans and a while back (about 3 years ago I guess) I got a 1996 Mustang GT totally stock. I got a schweet deal on it ($240) but of course with the deal I got I expected problems. Boy does this poor stang have some. Some body issues. The guy I got it from doesn't know much about cars and most of the information he gave me I couldn't trust so I had a "pal" that had nothing to do but seemed to know mustangs and was free during the times I was at work who was supposed to be taking care of things for me. Well that didn't end well and after I saw all he'd done I was furious and sick. To put it shortly, I am missing some things to get it up and running fully and some of which he lost. I'm in process of doing a PI conversion among other things. Well thanks to all and glad to be here.


    This is how it looks now

    Welcome! Sorry to hear the experience, so far, hasn't really been that great. Super awesome community here, though, and I'm sure people will be happy to help if you need it! :)

    Yes sir. Glad to be here. It has been a task but I was so upset after what happened that I let is sit for a while. But now I'm at it and I'm not stopping until it's done!

    I will slowly but surely but so much I want to do and so many things I find are missing while trying to do other things but hey, once I figure out what all is missing and what goes where then I think I'll be fine.

    WELCOME BRO! I'm a mechanic and work at the PEP BOYS on Behrman Hwy/Belle Chasse Hwy on the westbank. I'm also obsessed with these cars. If you need help, swing by and say hi. Name is Kevin. I've got a 94 GT with a boatload of work done I'll be putting on the road in the next week or so..... I live in Belle Chasse.

    BTW, I love the GT rims you have on your car... maybe we can work something out that I can take em off your hands since you're putting cobra style rims on it anyway... :grin:

    For sure. As far as the rims some clown stole two so that's why I even went for the Cobra style rims when those two were offered.
