    Thumbs up Finally got my $400 SC home....

    I bought this thing like 3 months ago and haven't had no time for it and it just sat at a friends house...well it's home now so now i'll have a chance to get into it and fix the no start/miss/crazy tach/buzzin IRCM problems....lol...hey what you expect for 400 dollas? no sunroof,no keyless entry,prolly no alarm,no VMM....but does have power antennaand the premium jbl audio system which i was jammin too up until about 2 hours ago when it suddenly died... (no sound-sort of..looks like its workin and speakers make a static type sound when i change stations,but i think i killed it cuz i unhooked the battery a couple times and the last time,yep no more sound...fuses are good tho) and it has the factory cd player that worked when i first tried it but it really like Eminem so it didn't want to give it back...lol....anyway i guess the car has a newer rebuilt supercharger,new rack,new o2 sensors,new radiator,and a k&n filter...has t-bird lx rims and dry rotted tires and it needs headlights...so yea it's a project but you wouldn't be able to tell from lookin at it...lol... there's just somethin about these SC's that I'm addicted too! Prolly cuz it ain't a mustang for 1 and for 2 the cars are just sexy as hell....yea imma have to show off the pics...lol

    lol, 100 bucks less than my 94 auto... of course, i kinda stole it, with the owner thinking that it had a blown headgasket, according to his "mechanic"

    turned out to be a leaky drain cock in the radiator, a couple bad sensors, and a ccrm (and thats a maybe, i just did the #14 mod for s's&g's)

    Wrong Wheels

    It's got the wrong wheels. They look like they're from an LX. Can we see what's under the hood?

    How do you figure? 1992 was the first year for the LED tails. But if it's missing the OEM spoiler (which I didn't see a 3rd brake light so very possible) it doesn't mean it's a 93 trunk lid. It could be anything from a '92 to '97 lid.

    And the wheels appear to be '93 - '95 LX wheels, just like he mentioned in the first post

    Is it just me, or do the belts look a little funny - or perhaps discolored? - on the engine? Otherwise, looks real good for a $400 buy
