Your Projects: Sally Frankenstein

What began as a moss-covered, engineless 1989 Ford Mustang LX quickly took a turn for the better when forum member Rushcanuck got his hands on it. Over four years of work, he’s created a real retro muscle monster, taking peices from almost every iteration of third generation Mustang.

I like this car is being brought up again. It's so rare to see foxes, Irocs, Firebirds etc of this vintage not hacked up.


Long live the four eyes.

I see an SVO single plane spoiler on the boot lid.  Had a new SVO with the bi-plane spoiler back in the day. Great cars and one I would like to reacquire.
