    Looks NICE man!!! The wheels are great. I definitely wouldnt think there are too many tbirds in Estonia. People must look everywhere you go. What's in the background in the shop picture? Is that your shop? Those look like old Buick wheels...I want to guess 1970-1973 Riviera?

    1987 20th Anniversary Cougar, 302 "5.0" GT-40 heads (F3ZE '93 Cobra) and TMoss Ported H.O. intake, H.O. camshaft
    2.5" Duals, no cats, Flowmaster 40s, Richmond 3.73s w/ Trac-Lok, maxed out Baumann shift kit, 3000 RPM Dirty Dog non-lock TC
    Aside from the Mustang crinkle headers, still looks like it's only 150 HP...

    It was for sale in one car sale place. I was looking american hobby car and when I saw it there , my first thougt was: I want it. I was looking it closer and thinking about the price which was in your money 3800 dollars. 2 weeks later I came and bought it. was 12 march 2007 and I had my first american V8 car.
    For now car have dual 2.5" exhaust, heddman headers(which is going to be replaced with some normal headers) , flowmaster 40´s, MSD 8.8mm wires, MSD TFI coil, K&N air filter, BBK aluminium pulleys

    Don't worry about that, it's no doubt better than many of our posters that use English every day...

    You have a nice looking Bird, guessing you get a lot of comments...

    BTW, welcome to the board...
