    Hello,

    Well, I just bought a 94 GT for something to tinker with instead of dumping more money into my FWD DD, 13'[email protected]+ just dont seem fun. New to the platform, but not new to the mustang world. I had a 2011 GT back when they came out in late 2010, but life gets in the way and a $460 payment gets kind of annoying.

    Here is the 94. It's got....210,000 miles on it. Overall goals are probably to find a 302 bare short block and build a 347 + boost from the ground up. Bone stock as it sits right now except for some exhaust tips.

    Welcome to the site. Looks like the body's in good shape, and thats a lot of mileage lol. But it doesn't matter since your planning on a new block anyways. Make sure you make a "Build Thread" when you start wrenching on it so everyone can see the work you do. Enjoy your stay

    Yea, i didn't see any rust anywhere on the body, the paint is faded a little in some spots, plus it was a 1 owner car, which i couldn't believe.

    Welcome! And I dig the car. That's a lot of miles but that old 302 can handle it. Good thing you are going to build another motor though.

    Yea, the body was the big selling point for me at the price.

    I will say that shifting distance is ridiculous, makes me other car feel like it has a STS installed.

    Another midwesterner! Looks like a great car, make sure you create a build thread to keep us up to date! Im from Dubuque Ia if you know where thats at. Its at the corner of ia/il/wi so not too far from you, just a couple hours. If you end up needing any parts let me know. I run a small business called Mustang Morgue where I specialize in Mustang parts. You can check it out at facebook.com/mustangmorgue

    Rock Island is a pretty decent cruise from me, but then again [MENTION=16774]Bub[/MENTION] cruised out to my place and I don't think he's too far from you.
