  1. jc - I got the deal of the year for you. I have a running, driving gray '96 SHO I want out of the driveway. Clean title, body has 200k on it, drivetrain closer to 100k. Welded, runs strong. Front valve cover gasket leaking a bit = smokes a bit when I fired it up last weekend. $350.00 just come and get it. Yes, you can drive it home. I live in Lombard. It has all the parts you want and a few other precious items too. Like a full on JBL sound system. Like a gray cloth interior in good shape.
  2. Badass party van for sale

    Bwah ha ha ha haaaaaa!! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Great platform car. I have already thought of this and actually discussed this with the SWiMBO. She is not so enthusiastic. I'm just too busy to play right now and right now is the proper time to start a ball like this rolling. Who is our team if I would donate this car to the soon to be formed TSOC Bull-Team? Do we have to have a bill of sale to satisfy Lemons' minimum purchase price rules? Honestly. I could probably coax a few bucks out of my company for a sponsorship in exchange for a couple stickers on the car or so, but I think Lemons has rules about that stuff.
  4. Bump. Nobody wants a winter beater? Super rare Gray V8 SHO which 'Could' be restored. Drivetrain is rock solid. $500.00 Cash, come and get it.
  5. Hi guys - I have a '96 SHO I just don't use anymore. Daughter used it for years but went away to college and I need the parking spot. Plates expire end of the month and I don't want to renew them. Here's the deal. Car is street legal, passed emissions last year but will need Cats to pass again. Has old snow tires on it right now that would get you through last year winter but not 20" of snow. Never burns oil, engine welded, strong tranny. I want my cloth interior out of it but don't know if I have 2 gray leather front seats. I have plenty of tan seats. Great winter beater. Plenty rusty. Very dependable. In Lombard, Illinois. I want $700.00 for the car as is and no callbacks two weeks later with some bullshit wanting your money back. That is why I am selling it as a engine/trans combo with a full car attached. One can get plates for the car, I don't expect it to pass emissions, and whatever breaks, Breaks. JBL sound system is just a plus.
  6. Hey Brian - Now there's a 54,000 mile 1989 White Mustang GT Convertible for sale nearby. Pix look really good. Car looks near flawless once you get past those floormats - those things hurt my eyes! Only asking $7500.00. I wouldn't let my Barney go for that and the SHO is higher miles. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/1989-ford-mustang-gt/6273520864.html
  7. Following up on 1986 Lincoln Towncar. Putting new Walker Cats, sourced from Rockauto.com Nice items. Would be even more nice if they fit perfect. They fit close, Blow torch and a mallet and the bends will be better. Flanges way off from square.
  8. Josh Ditch the Avatar, I know where that car sleeps now. And it will be cold. Very COLD. ;-) Nick 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.
  9. Patched a hole in an exhaust pipe on my 1986 Lincoln Towncar. Just behind the catalytic converter on the drivers' side. Not gonna hold for long. Really need to replace the cats, but would rather put in a straight pipe on both sides. Anybody sell pre-made "off-road pipes"? These would need to be flanged on both ends.
  10. I've known Andy and Kris for 15 years. SHE dragged him into this SHO thing. It is GOING to be tracked and then gone over with a toothbrush. Someday soon, the sidewalls on those tires are gonna look like rock-salt. Take my word for it. They live WAY to close to Road America.
  11. I think that car could be around for a very long time. Kris and Andy are very long time SHO enthusiasts and popular in the SHO community. They will take outstanding care of that car and be able to find anything it needs as well as anyone I could name. Car probably going into limited use and of course the occasional track day. Salt monster won't get much time with this little treasure.

    Bite your tongue, young man! I consider 3 as a rather good START....
  13. Hey Brian - Heads up Somebody on Chicago Garage is switching to IRS and can't use this brand new MAC 3" Catback for a 5.0 LX. He's in Streamwood - just down the road for easy pickup. Saw a bump of a thread today but it may be sold, just throwing it out there for you, Sir. http://www.thechicagogarage.com/forum/sale-automotive/159473-f-s-mac-3-cat-back-exhaust-79-95-lx-mustangs.html
  14. 1993 Taurus SHO 77k miles $5000

    '93 ATX The '93 Automatic trans was more of a fuse. And that fuse blew regularly as I recall. I would be very wary if that was not a well documented replacement trans in there already.
