Yeah, it's like Christmas break started early in California. Either that or the economy has them all jobless or something.

Technically. He's always smashing it on every gear. Treats it like a race car... I mean... a real car Manual FTW

So I had to email this pic into my Ford dealer as know one knew what the hell they are for ? one idea was if shipped by train part of a securing system to hold her down to get rapped. So he'll check & get back on it !

I would assume that had to be dealing with the shipping, but I dont know for sure...that axle is already rusting!

Sounds like a reasonable explanation. That would explain why most cars don't have it.

The little iron block right under the axle on the lca mounting bracket. You talk about it in your write-up Bill. My 2007 GT/CS did not have them.

That's another reason I'm considering a CS front end again....I like my CDC but I've always loved the CS front.....


on the beater front... hear me out.

Found a '70 T-Bird with a 429 $800 bucks... keep the engine sell the Tbird. Tbirds always had a Hi-Po engine and the 429 in 70 is the high compression version with a closed combustion chamber.... Sell what's left of the T-Bird for parts.

Also found a 68 F250 for 1000.... Take the 429 put into the F250.... Proceed to Hot-rod that Big Block up... one bad-assed truck. No smog, no worries. Hell you could stand in the engine compartment to work on it if you had to.

1800 bucks, lots o' fun. Rain wouldn't be a problem.

IF I had the 1800 bucks I would have bought it all last night.

1800 bucks? That's more than halfway towards forged internals. That's why I'm trying to keep my secondary mode of transportation as cheap as possible.

I don't think going to the CS front bumper will solve your problems. Reason being the CS bumper still sit's lower than the stock GT bumper. Is it the same as the CDC chin? I'm not sure but I willing to bet it's pretty close.

yeah... I know it is. So the decision is hard to make. I want both can afford one and the other one I hope to afford this year before anything happens.

The biggie for me is the rock pits... No so much the rain or normal driving. The difference is a good third of the CS bumper is not painted but flat black... much easier to hide/disguise them

Let's see... I have $550 in day care, $125 for the daughter's dance lessons, $140 for the kid's piano lessons, and $300 per month in ultra-miniskirts for the wife... Hmmm... maybe I can afford a used bicycle? Dang, I'm jealous of you youngin's...!
