Is that your car? Did you take photos and then manipulate them on the computer? Those pics look really cool!

I have seen other pictures of his Stang so I know he has one but those pictures look to have some touch ups for sure.

You seem to be living in some sort of dystopian future.

Looks like a mid '80s stange with an LX body but GT badging.

If it rains you are ****ed with those slicks you will oversteer into the nearest tree.

My first car was a '66 Mustange GT... I bought when I was 16 with my Dad's help. It was a red coupe with glasspacks. That fugger was loud. I remember starting the thing early in the morning when it was still cold and the throttle getting stuck... um yah, the neighborhood was awake in a short time...

Yes it's my car, yes it is real, yes the photos have been re-touched using an HDR type processing, yes Akron is a ****hole LOL


Not a daily driver but it is driven year round minus rain and snow. Wife takes it grocery shopping - true - and still runs mid 10's@130mph

It's an 86 GT - in 87 my GT body style was turned into what most know as the LX package.

i ran slicks on my R6 on the street for years, only cuz i was too cheap to buy a second set of rims, and i needed them for weekends at the track, youd be surprised how much traction you get with slicks even when its raining, as long as its not standing water its really not bad at all, i suspect a car would be similar

nice car btw

Do you watch Spike TV's Power block?

They had a rerun of an 80's Mustang project they did turning it into a drag car.

I like watching them work on everything from engines to Trans to Axles to paint etc...

I sure love fast cars and fast bikes. Notwithstanding my avy which happens to be a VW Kombi, owned one of those, nice machine, put chains on it and with the good ground clearance it can take you lots of places. I like the fast RWD sedans, the Mercedes S class, the Lexus GS class. I don't like the FWD cars, don't like the understeer.

Might be different but when you run slicks on your bike any kind of moisture and your rear tire is going to be all over the place. I had a set of slicks for my old dirt bike when I was a kid so I could practice on the road and if it got damp you were screwed.
