Default I joined the 5.0 Fox club!

So my original plan was to pick up my parents '08 GT/CS but after looking at numbers it made more sense to go with something a little older/cheaper. After looking at a few cars I found/picked up a '91 hatch today!

I attached a couple pictures from the ad for the car, I'll snap some better ones tomorrow if it clears up a bit, the car got nasty driving back in the snow/rain!

Watch for me, I'll be around in it! It's the new daily after all..

Nice ass car! Lpve that color on a lx hatch. Be careful with it till it warms up, they like to turn backwards with blowers if your suspension is stock. Lol

With springs, control arms, fresh bushings, sub-frame connectors and DR's I'm hoping it'll hook up nicely. We'll find out when it's dry enough outside. Lol.

Thats a good start... id buy some heim joint adjustable upper control arms, set the proper pinion angle and it will dig in and hook a ton better than now.

Sure is! I got the original booklet with it too! Cool thing is that there's a company out there still making the maintenance parts for them.

Honestly not really...it's gonna go to TrueStreet and get checked out, make sure its a safe daily tune and then after that just rock it back and forth to work, tidy up little things as I go.

Only problem I'm facing is it was in the shop today getting an alternator and battery they managed to strip the alternator mounting hole. No freaking idea how. So yeah... I get to wait until at least Monday now...
