    reason of saying that is, last week i bought 2 mustangs, but they are not the sn95 body style, i purchased a 1982 Mustang GT and a 1986 Mustang GT...both roller cars, but i am focusing mainly on building the '82, the '86 will mainly be a parts car (for now, til i get a crazy idea to build a race car out of it)
