Ditch the Avatar, I know where that car sleeps now. And it will be cold. Very COLD.
It's a '86, not '96. First year of the Multiport Fuel Injected 5.0. I expect to finally turn 100,000 miles before the end of the month.
Kind of a 'Christine' thing. Car has been in the family since mile 3.
Car loves me.
I saved it from a flood in 1987 at the expense of letting my 1969 Mach 1 drown right next to it.
I took it to my reception after my wedding.
25 years later me and my bride went back to the same place with the same car and took pictures with the same owner. Lifetime photo on the wall of fame at that restaurant.
I can get the cats off Rockauto.com for $85.00 each plus shipping, etc, but they are not OEM and I don't think I am that interested in paying for 30 yr old OEM parts... Leaning towards that route right now, car is totally intact and I hate putting in aftermarket parts.
