You could get your Fox Body with a continental kit:

I'm guessing the bit of puke in my mouth is extra?

Would the continental kit work on other fox bodies? Fox wagon, mustang front clip, and a conti rear.

Just think about what you could do for weight transfer in the 1/4 mile with the extra length on a Fox Mustang.

At least it looks easily fixable. But the price is definitely in crack pipe territory.

Oh man that's incredible. Could you imagine throwing the Griggs catalog at that thing, then taking it road racing?

I did not know that. Seriously.

It's got LeChump written all over it. After the "extension" gets nailed half a dozen times, you can jettison it overnight and start with a fresh target the next morning.

Continental is moronic but ... somehow that one looks somewhat ok. Suits the lines of the two door. Oddly well.

How the hell do you get anything out of the trunk?? My back hurts just thinking about it.

That thing positively reeks of class. Anyone that says they don't absolutely love it is just being spiteful because they don't have one.

i could see that stuff on a Lincoln Zephyr, but not the Fairmont..

other than that, he's asking a lot of money for a $1500 car.

Wait, is it a FACTORY Continental kit or some oddball fiberfab concoction???

The car is in really nice shape, FWIW.

If it wasn't 4 hours away and $4k, I'd probably go check it out. Otherwise, I only know whats in the ad.

Having been codependent with the owner of a Fairmont Futura, and stubbornly ignoring your probable sarcasm, I have to say that Continental kit is quite possibly the only way you could have made one worse.
