    Well kinda. The winter beater shit the bed and was sold so it looks like I'll be driving the stang for the winter :(. So I threw 3 coats of wax on for protection. Oh, she tripped 244,444 miles on the way home today...still factory paint :).

    Thanks guys! I don't get home often and down at school there's no where to wax the car, so I needed to load her up and go. I'm dreading the salty winter roads :(.

    Thanks guys :dancing6:

    The headgaskets went around 235,000. That was my fault, I was at the track and she was pingin real bad. After that I did a set of TFS heads/rockers. EVERYTHING else has the mileage (shortblock, tranny, etc.).

    Just the normal stuff I guess. Oil every 2k, wash often, wax somewhat often...ehh thats all I can think of lol. The main thing is how it's driven, I try not to beat the living shit out of it :).

    Honestly, you sound exactly like me. Its just a little harder to keep it nice since the garage is packed up with crap.
