As for mods, it has a TE44 turbo, 36 lb injectors, GN110T cam advanced 4 degrees, Turbo Tweak chip, 3 inch Terry Houston downpipe, 3 inch straight shot mandrel bent exhaust with a Dynomax Ultraflow muffer and dump pipe, Walbro 340 pump with hot wire, and of course an Alky control alcohol injection set up.

Then there's other small little mods like an adjustable waste gate, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, Scanmaster, PLX wide band, Kirban's shifter mod, Caspers knock alarm, Caspers alternator hot wire, Steadfast column guard....pushing 23-24 lbs of boost, all eslse is stock down to the factory posi trac and factory bucket seats.

Can't wait to get some slicks on it and get it to the track.

That is one damn sweet TR man. I think you have posted it one time before so I guess I'm telling you again .

I looked at a local Grand National around here and the guy wanted 10k for it. That was late last year and it's still sitting in his yard. It was nice but wasn't worth no 10k. Needed weather stripping and some minor rust repair. The engine seem like it ran well but I think the valve seals might have been leaking. The back fenders also had melted rubber from where he had been doing burnouts and he didn't even clean it off. You could tell he had mistreated it.

My first car was a 1974 Ford Gran Torino with a 351 Windsor, then I got a 1977 Chevy Bonanza 4x4 with a 350. Then I got a 1994 Chevy Cheyenne 4x4 that was featured in Petersens Readers Rides. Right now I have a 2007 GMC Sierra SLT 2500HD with the 6.0L and my wife drives a 2007 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. I have owned a few more vehicles but those are my favorites.

No....unfortunately I believe Kirbans is somewhere on the eastern seaboard....I can't remember if it was MA or PA....and I'm over 1000 miles away to the west....otherwise I would. Heck I wished I was a little closer to Bowling Green for the annual Buick nats.

Sure PM me sometime, was wondering if you're on turbobuick.com

Yeah some of the TR's/GN's were/are ran hard and put up wet. However on turbobuick.com they aren't/haven't been selling as much lately due to the recession....for what I paid for my car before the recession hit I've seen nicer examples sell for the same price....makes me wish I had a big jar of money somewhere....I want to get another 86-87 TR that's in a little nicer shape than mine for a weekend cruiser and use my current one as my DD/track car.

Default 2 Mustangs

Here are two of our cars. An '07 and a '67. The only thing that is different now on the '67 is that I have changed the center hub cap from the GT version to the plain since the '67 is not a GT.

Going to have engine worked on again ($500 in work didnt do it the first time ) and fix some rust on the lower back area, reseal the windows and thats basically it other than paint.

I want to keep it the original color (golden brown), but love this blue color that some of these cars were... have thought about painting it this color...



Oh, granpa had a 65 Continental convertible. It was off white with black leather interior. A beauty it was.

The car on top of my resto list is a 62 Continental convertible. I need to make a topic on it so I can get some help on deciding what colors to have it painted.
