1997 Ford Mustang Cobra, in preparation for ESP autocross competition.

In 1997 my father passed away from cancer and in the years before he died we would go out and test drive cars on some weekends for fun, this car is identical to the last car that we ever got the chance to test drive. Also of note is that we restored a 1968 mustang together when I was in grade school.

The setup of the car is as follows

Front suspension koni SA/ poly bushings/ CC plates/ 35mm front swaybar with poly swaybar bushings/H&R race springs

Rear suspension Koni SA's/ H&R race springs

Engine K&N filter/ MAC catless H-pipe/ Flowmasters/ cooling fan override switch

Auburn Road racing diff

currently running 275/40/17 V710's on 2003 cobra 17x9 wheels

I would like to thank Sam Strano for his help with modification plans.

me myself and I had a conference and we determined that I told me and myself and the myself told I and me. Me had to reassure myself that it was in fact the truth because myself dosent trust I after I told myself that this was all silly. In short, I am he!

Why is there a cone stabbed into the grass?
