Well..... I just spent about 30 minutes typing up a big introduction for my car, and get this:

OK, I finally got back to this. Hopefully it works this time.....

This is my 89 GT which I purchased on January 19,1995. Tons and tons of memories and stories with/about her have been created over the last 19 years. There is the old saying "nearly everyone has a story they can tell you about a Mustang". Well, this car would be featured in many stories Very Happy. I've named it, and I call her "The Eight Nine".

This is shortly after I bought it, approximately April of 1995. As you can see, it started life as an Oxford White on Titanium Silver car.


At one point I thought I was "done" and it was how I wanted it to look. This is in 98 or 99, getting it ready for a local car show.


Another point where I thought I was "done" under the hood.


Here's a pic with my old 86 GT (I know - not white - but I still loved it).


Then, my Wife and I got married and started a family and my priorities were rearranged. And so she sat about 3 or 4 years. At the point of this picture, getting it looking good again was a pipe dream. As you can see, it was one of the classic "oxford white = paint flaking" cars.


Things changed.... and my Wife and I made some adjustments to make it's transformation back to a decent looking Stang. The next few photos are it's process. The paint was done at Six Feet Under Auto Body here in Utah - which has sadly gone out of business since.





The old paint was scraped off rather easily with a razor blade.

And here it is. Now all oxford white. This is it's first glimpse of daylight after being painted.


Couple more.











Here's a look under the hood. Mods include, but are not limited to (19 years is a long time to remember everything you've done): GT40P heads, 1.71 93 Cobra Roller Rockers, Explorer lower intake, Downs Ford Upper, 24 lb. injectors, 73mm MAF, BBK Headers (work just fine with P heads), High Flow Catalytic H-Pipe, MAC Flowpath Catback, King Cobra Clutch, Hurst Shifter, 3.55 R&P, A/C Delete, P/S Delete, Flaming River manual rack, Flaming River solid steering shaft, 1993 Ford Taurus E-Fan (using BMW temp sensor and Volvo relay), Fram Air-Hog panel filter.





I don't know how much is appreciated in the "mods" department in this forum. I'd be happy to answer any questions though. Hope you enjoyed my story.
