I restored a '73 Mustang convertible about 10 years ago, attempting to re-restore it now. 8 feet of flood water in my garage did a number on it.

Sure miss cruising around in that thing... :'(

That New Yorker is NIIIIICE. So is that mustang! I know you're hurt from that flood!

23mpg in that Dually!?!? I need to trade the magnum in! Sheesh! I love that thing! (Opening up Autotrader and eBay now!) LOL, does it get that mileage because of the mods or is it diesel??

The dually is an automatic, high output Cummins turbo diesel, 145k on the clock and the mods with the mileage and the way I drive get me that mileage. I go easy I get 23, I get on it and I get single digits. The power rating is not a joke, that is dynoed and verified.

I bought a farm truck from my police Chief this past December. It was dirty, dusty, and was full of mud and cow shat underneath. Rainwater had washed the chrome off of the headlight surronds and part of the grille. $150 and 4 days later she's shined up, new grille (painted the inserts red myself), new headlights (Euro-clear type), and new surrounds for said headlights. I got a set of 31x10.5R15's mounted on wagon wheels from PrimalSeal's brother really cheap ($200 IIRC), but had to go back to factory rims since due to the rim's bead leaking. It's a work in progress, but sure enough It'll be a looker when I'm done. The toolbox came all the way from PrimalSeal for free, all I had to do was pay for shipping.

Those are some nice 'stangs Jones, I am only referring to the late Fox bodies though, as I can't stand the earlier Fox body nor the '94-'96 or so model...

huh? I was just posting up my old stangs. What were you referring to? BTW the 94-98 is the same body style. The 95 was the last year of the 5.0 in the SN-95 body style. They then in 96 introduced the 4.6 in the stang.

'07 Aveo LS w/ 5-speed... no mods (except it has real rims instead of steelies with caps on it now) until it's paid off and the warranty expires (25,000 miles or about one year of driving to go).

FWIW, I like it,even though I'm tired of it.

Pic is from back in winter of '07 after I had just gotten done doing some handbrake snow-drifting in an empty parking lot.

lakota, how the HECK do you get 23 mpg in the magnum!? I average about 18 - 20. and I put premium gas in it and have the programmer with the K&N drop in filter!

I saw a pic of the inside of one of those Aveos a couple years back. It was like staring at a VW bug and stepping into a Camry, (with the extra room).

I've got a completely stock 5.7 Hemi. Haven't changed anything and use Regular gas. Last month I did a 550 mile, one day road trip that was 90% highway (I-75). Went 388 miles on first tank, and put in 16.5 gallons. Comes out to about 23.5 mpg. Had the cruise set at 78mph most of the time. One other time, just to see what I could do, I kept it at 65-70 mph and got 26mpg. Again, highway miles (not stop and go). Around town, I'm in the 14-18 mpg (depending on how I drive). A lot different from when I had my '64 GTO (bought new). Lucky to get 10 mpg in town. It had a 389 bored out to 401, tri-power, balanced and blue printed, cam, headers, close-ratio 4 speed, 4.33 posi, metalflake paint, no air, ps, or pb. Engine was worked on by Pete Seaton (Seaton Shaker Funny Car).
