1982 Mustang GT hatchback owned by Barbara Foster from Canada. It's painted in a custom blend of Sikkens course metallic silver paint with course metallic charcoal gray stripes. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for February 10th, 2008. Barbara tells us more, "This car was completely stripped down to bare metal; the entire interior, drivetrain, and suspension all removed and rebuilt in 8 months. The only work contracted out was the spraying of the paint. All the bodywork, engine assembly, installation of entire drivetrain and suspension - including new brake lines, as well as the interior - including a custom made aluminum dash with Auto Meter gauges was completed by my husband and me. I have a Cardomain page that chronicles the entire build of the car, including installation of: Eibach Sportline suspension kit; Baer brakes front and back; installed battle boxes; and new engine and T5Z transmission. |

Red 1983 Mustang GT hatchback owned by Kevin James. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting July 28, 2013. Kevin tells us, "The nose has been painted red and the original paint has been buffed and polished. The wheels have been painted as well. The tires are 245 50 16 in the rear and 225 55 16 up front. I installed Tokico hp struts and shocks. The front end has '90 spindles and 11" brakes. The rear has an 8.8 from a '86 with 3.27 gears. It has new tubular upper and lower control arms with energy suspension bushings and without the rear isolators. The car sits 26" in the front and 26-5/8" in the rear. I have front seats from a 1990. New black carpet from late model restoration. The car stops so great now and the launches are firmer and the 3.27 gears get it out of the hole better."

Black 1983 Mustang GT hatchback owned by Tim from Cleveland, Ohio. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting July 24, 2016. Tim tells us, "I bought it in 1985 when I was 19. I drove it for several years, but then parked it in the mid '90's. About 7 years ago, my brother took the car out of my mom's garage to a local shop and got it running again. At that point, it was mostly stock except a few visual mods. For the first few years, that was okay but after awhile my son and I needed to amp up the performance aspect of the car. In May 2013 we took to removing the motor and trans. Over the course of the next year and a half, the top end was completely gone through including GT40 iron heads, a Comp 268H cam, perform roller rockers, and an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. This year, the car got new 10th anniversary cobra rims and lowering springs. It's a riot to drive, and was a great project to work on."
