    Default Show your engine now !!!!!

    READ THIS>>>>

    Since it's not a technical deal, I am posting this thread here. Show off your engines everyone. Pretty, ugly, in the middle, whatever. Only Our cars ( FOX THUNDERBIRDS AND COUGARS ONLY). No other cars allowed. No transmissions,suspension, etc. All engines. No other subject matter allowed. We have plenty of other threads for that. Engines only. I'll start right now with a pic you've seen before.........

    Hey, you did say ugly. It's a work in progress. That's what the rockers looked like when I first got it, 140K miles and sat 8 years before I rescued it.
    The covers were a gift.

    There's an angine in there somewhere:190204-44.jpg

    Glad you mentioned "Foxbirdcats only"... You guys wouldn't have any interest in my 1.9 turbodiesel, 3.5 Chrysler V6 or 4.3 Vortec. Hell, I own them and I have no interest in them...

    Sweet. Hope this is as epic as the wife/gf thread on the corral. I inspired that one too.

    Nice shots so far guys. I've got to get an aftermarket Mass Air meter for 24's soon. I'm hoping for a supercharger next year...late next year.
