I removed the 4 cylinder 4 speed and put in a 302 bored with long tube Blackjack headers dumped just in front of rear axle from 18 cherrybombs (it sounds good once throttle is pushed) and paired with a C4 automatic. The interior donated from a 89 GT, front bumper custom made using bumper for a 91. The only parts I ain't got to touch yet are rear quarter panels. The car was a father son project before he grew up and moved. Now its my weekend toy. Still trying to decide the final color scheme. Taking all ideas offered. I am currently looking at the Shadow Gray with flat black striping."

(5 photos of a 1985 Oxford White Mustang Predator Convertible) Oxford White 1985 Mustang Predator convertible owned by Kerry Wiland from Cortland, Ohio. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 15, 2013. Kerry tells us more, "I just recently purchased this Mustang. It came to me from Gardner, Kansas. It is a rare and odd car. It started life as a 1985 Twister II white convertible. It is one of eight Twister IIs that have been confirmed that were sent to Soloman American and converted to Predators. Data I have found shows that one of those cars was a hatch, one was a red vert, and the last six were white verts. If this is the case, then all six white vert twister IIs that were built would have been converted to Predators. Three of them are carb'd cars and three of them were CFI cars. This car is Predator number 5S-0149. It has undergone a cosmetic restoration on the body back to it's original Predator condition with the addition of the twister graphic on the rear 1/4 to pay homage to the way it started it's life. It has no other modifications other than those done by Soloman American. These pictures were taken before I purchased it. The building in the background is the Soloman American warehouse building."

This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting February 23, 2014. Wayne shares, "The car was purchased new from Cal Worthington Ford. We have owned it ever since. As you can tell I am a stock nut and did a lot of research before deciding to restore her in full original configuration. I found out that only 29 hatchbacks where painted color code 4M in 1985 - add to that the limited production of 'T-roof' cars and I am certain this is a one of vehicle. Like Bonnie and Clyde thanked Ford for such an awesome vehicle, I will have to do the same. This vehicle has never left us dead anywhere. At times her gallop was not what it should have been but she always made it home. "

(4 photos of a 1985 Black Mustang Predator Hatchback) Black 1985 Predator Mustang hatchback owned by Daniel Fox from Wichita, Kansas. It has the 5.0L V8 engine and a manual transmission. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting April 8, 2018. The Predator was designed by Tom Soloman and sold at Ford dealers. Daniel had this story to share, "Like most car guys I had never even heard of a Predator Mustang until I discovered one on-line. Of course the curiosity got the best of me, and I had to know more. From there it wasn't long and I had to have one. (This is my 5th Fox-body Mustang by the way and I hopefully not my last) I was fortunate to get to know a couple of great knowledgeable guys on-line in the Predator community, and as luck would have it one of them was the previous owner of our car. He hooked me up with the guy selling the car on eBay; the car was sweet with only 29k original miles. The only catch was it was in Pennsylvania. What! How in the world am I going to purchase a car through eBay all the way up in PA.? No test drive, no putting your hands on the car, no sitting in it. I live in Wichita, KS for cry'in in the night... And the expense of getting the car back to Kansas was really stressing me out. I sure as heck wasn't going to drive it back to Kansas. After days and weeks of talking on the phone, texting and a lot of patience from my wife who was constantly talking me off the ledge. I was able to get the purchase done and get the car shipped from PA. It was one of the most stressful things I've ever done, don't recommend buying a classic that way, but as my wife says I was on a mission. After two days of transport the car arrived on a Saturday late morning and it was like Christmas morning. Yah it was just like that. The car had issues from sitting so much, with only 29k miles on the odometer, you do the math that's a little over 900 miles a year. Run-ability issues, AC didn't work and some of the Predator pkg. accessories had been altered or replaced. So I spent the next year tuning the car and with the help of a gentleman here in Kansas who is an expert in Predators, I was able to get her real close to exactly the way she was when delivered back in 1985. Our car is Serial # S5-0131. The car was produced in Topeka KS. It was sold new at Rusty Eck Ford in Wichita, KS. It is 1 of 135-140 cars with the Predator package in 1985.
And that's how S5-0131 got back to Kansas and this is where she'll stay."
