Nice weekend
#1
Had a nice weekend. I have two 'fun' cars. My mustang and a 82 Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee is built for fun trail runs. I just spend several weekends swapping out the TC case for a new Atlas 4spd and then taking it on a couple of trail runs.

But it was time to get the Mustang. Since I have 2 fun cars and my wife and I each have a DD one of the 'fun' cars gets parked at my moms house. (Yep, I am almost 50 but I don't live in her non-existent basement).

Anyways, swapped out the Jeep for the Mustang on Saturday and have been smiling ever since. So much fun to drive. The motor is really strong and with the top down, the headers and glass packs she just sounds sweet.

I got her just past 5500 RPM with the tires spining and then flipped her into second where the tires just kept spinning. So much fun.

Lots to do. Fuel guage stopped working, need new dash, front suspension and rear leafs are on the list. I think my limited slip is more limited than before. I also have a gear vendors waiting to be installed. Oh, and I think I have a broken motor or tranny mount. Something doesn't feel right.

Time to get busy. I almost hate to start since I am having so much fun driving her.

Yeah, now is 'my time of year'. What I need to plan better is the summers. There are typically a few hours in the mornings where the heat isn't too bad. It's not great convertible mustang weather and really not a great time to go wheel'n. I am going to make plans for this summer to get work done on both.

The weather sucks here in Michigan.Sad We got 6 or 7 inches of snow this weekend and I had to work. My Vert is sitting in the garage with the cover on it and I have not driven it in a month.

Are you trying to p*ss me off here?!? We have 31F and the roads are covered in grime and salt. And you can't even get your mail from the mailbox without dressing like the member of an Antarctica expedition. :/
I'm thinking of trading in Shelby the cat for a penguin.
