5 lug swap, rear disc swap, RWD, and v8 swap.

Thats right ladies and gentleman. After much downtime, I finally got my new car. If you missed the other thread, you can view it here:
https://www.civicforums.com/forums/4...how-drive.html

Anyways, heres a couple quick shots of the new car, more to come. I know its not a civic, but im still going to be coming on these boards to lend a hand and drop some knowledge. lol. Without further ado, Sally, meet everyone. Everyone, meet Sally.







Going from the civic to this is something else, and this thing is sooo much fun to drive. lol

Nice stuff man. I've always had a soft spot for big ford muscle cars. Momma is gonna get a Foos special re-built '69 fastback some day soon. Lot's you can do with that car though.

All that being said, here's the best part on the car.

Congrats on the new car and hope you enjoy.. Also hope you stick around the site for a while man.

Re: 5 lug swap, rear disc swap, RWD, and v8 swap.

The jokes and negative comments about Ford's past quality issues may all be in good humor or jealousy. In any case, an acknowledgement should be made of Ford's consistent quality improvements across its lineup. The Mustang, among other Ford vehicles, received the JD Power Initial Quality Award last year.

Coincidentally, I stopped by Buena Park Honda last month to test drive the new Accord Coupe V6. I then stopped by the Ford dealer across the street to test drive a Mustang. Two very different cars, but couldn't decide. Keeping my Civic for now.

Congrats.

Re: 5 lug swap, rear disc swap, RWD, and v8 swap.

i hope it works out good for you man. 3 of my friends have gotten in accidents in 3 different types of ford vehicles and in all of the crashes the safety equipment didnt work. the first a 2001 Taurus, airbags not going off in a 65mph crash into a pole while the seat belt didnt lock, the next a 1992 Tempo hit a guard rail going 45 because the car randomly died and when it died the steering locked again seat belt didnt lock nor air bags go off, the final a 2004 F250 was off roading and hit a rock on the steering that is on front of the axle and the steering went out and hit a tree going 25. didnt expect the last one to have an air bag but we werent sure if the belt should have locked but it didnt. So based off of those i wont ever go for a Ford in my life unless its made before 1970. And for the record thankfully none of my friends were seriously injured.

either way good luck with the car man and i hope it serves you well...
