If you really wan't toget the turbo. Look around on ebay. Theres some good deals on turbos on there. Exspecially for these smaller motors. Or just put a 4.3 in it.

Why buy a car that's over priced with all the after market stuff to just strip it off. Keep the kit just paint the ugly bitch stripes and lose the yellow shit inside and call it a day.

No offense. But thats because thats a gay car and theres not many gay guys out there that are going to buy it.
But mostly, because its a ugly car period and it has probably been raced and beat to hell.

It's a DD to save money, why would he repaint something that he only cares enough about to service it in order that it's reliable transportation?? It appears that he's even selling off the useless poop thats on it now.

lose the stripes

Sell the body kit (keep the rear wing), tail lights, head lights, and yellow interior stuff.

Buy a suspension system. You have way too much gap in the wheel wells. It don't look so good with the after market wheels. Put winter tires on the stockers, a nice performance tire on the after markets, and enjoy.

A complete Ford SVT suspension (1/2" lowered stance and thicker swaybars) system from summit racing is the best deal going at less than $300 for shocks, springs, rear sway bar, and bushings. If you go that route, buy new swaybar links because you're going to cut out the old links.

Four wheels? check.
Runs? check.
okay MPG? check.
Will get Mike to where he wants to go? check.


Who gives a shit? If it is his, and will get him where he wants to go, then great. Looks like a good score. I have been looking at four-door ones so I can haul the kids around.
