so thought i would share this one... i have a full write up of the build on another site, but wasnt sure if i could share the site on here so ill give you a quick low down.. this is a car my brother and i built about 2 years ago.. started with a $500 86 coupe and a $1400 2004 gt.. basically gutted and stripped the 86 down to a shell and swapped everything except for the intior over to the 86... car is currently his daily driver and gets 25+ MPG on the highway with 4.10 gears...






running and driving for the first time

Not an sn? No it's not it's better I would trade my 95 for a 4 eye Fox in a heartbeat. Good job on getting to where it's at

That's pretty awesome! I'm guessing the ability to get that mpg with 4.10s comes from the lower weight of the fox.

very nice you must be happy.

If I were to get a fox I think I would have to try and find some T-tops just for fun.

It cruises 70mph @ 2600-2700rpms. So combination of the trans gearing, lighter weight, and the fact that I don't have to give it alot of gas to make it get up and go....I mean seriously, it moves quick with little effort. But honestly I drive like a grandpa half the time...So that's my guess.

I'm Roachedone's brother BTW...The proud owner of this car with big thanks to him.
