    Check out what SVPU is doing with an '87 Turbo Coupe. 5.0 transplant and a bunch of other goodies. Looks real nice.

    dang that's sweet! seems like you can't go wrong with a set of SN-95 wheels on a TBird, feels like they are made for these cars.

    That's Paul, he's gonna make a sweet ride. Check out his other project cars...I owned LSC-R #002 for a few months, it was a blast...basically a cross between a Lincoln and a go-kart.

    The guys over at SVPU do some good work, I'm just still kind of ticked off when I was going to buy one of their cars, they tried to tell me that it would cost a few thousand dollars to make a 150 mph speedo(I think most of us know how to change the values on an electronic speedo, just need to have an overlay made). For their credit, it was a very good looking gauge cluser

    Are you talking about the Mark VII cluster they made? They used Mustang speedo/tach and Turbo Coupe fuel/temp gauges in a custom cluster made to fit the Mark VII, it was all hand made. IIRC, it never really worked right and you're better off with the stock 120mph unit.
