I have to ask....why are you looking for another fox when you just sold a pretty nice one with lots of time and effort already in it?

Now....how is it that you're the only one that doesn't know the answer to that one Joe?

Thanks for being tactful at least, haha. Someone a while back said i don’t deserve a nice fox.

Anywho - the last car was a bummer to sell. But it needed time. Something I’m really short on lately. I’m swearing off large builds for real. No seriously, i promise. I just want something to drive now that all my friends have nice cruisers. They’re actually at a car show right now without me.
Maybe you buy that, maybe you don’t, but it’s where we are.

I'm still in the "get a classic" camp. It's lonely here.
I’ve been looking, they just aren’t out there. Anything i can afford is a basket case.

Find me a 66 fairlane or a 69 Torino GT for $7500.

Does it have to be a ‘66?

A slightly crusty ‘69 for $5500.

Honestly, I would tell you to concentrate on the house and baby number two for now, resist the urge to get a car just to have one, and save up for what you really want.

I want to but i don’t know how to do that.

I can buy a pack of smokes and burn through em in a day and not pick up another pack for months.

I can drink beer all weekend and go all week without a beer.

I can’t go without a car. I don’t know how to do it. Weirdest thing ever.

I think it was rude to be told that you don't deserve a nice car...( Especially coming from a guy that thinks that I'm the poster child for rude)
I think a classic is completely beyond the norm, unless you're willing to consider a really boring steamship sized version like a 69- 70 Galaxy fastback...and even then......the nice ones are 15k. You can probably find some tuna barge version GM made out there ( Buick/olds/Pontiac) for less, maybe a Chrysler for even more so...but the older you get it,..the more like an " old car" it's gonna be.

The fact of the matter is that a Fox mustang is the closest thing to a classic mustang you'll ever need. And at the same time upgrade-able to a performance level that surpasses what you'll ever be able to hope for in any mustang made before 1979.

By your statements, you'd be willing to consider a whole bunch of stuff out there,...I have an idea..Cause I know for a fact that a nice unmolested version of one of these cars would be under 5-7k

Ready?

Behold the original Fox.

Every freakin thing that you can put on a mustang, fits this car w/o mods. This one has 34k miles, and is for sale for 5990.00

How do you like them apples?


*An to add this edit:.. This is a 4 banger car..the listed curb weight of a 4 banger Futura coupe is.......2684 lbs.

I like apples, but that’s a crab apple Mike! Haha


I drove 2 hours to look at the Rust Coupe. Complete bust. It was either a flood or northern car. Paint was an 8/10, interior was a 9/10. The underside was a 0.5/10. Oh man. Poor guy didn’t even know either.

The hunt continues.

That’s debatable.

And the curb weight of my 6-banger ‘66 was originally rated at 2600 lbs. Now that I think of it, early foxes were freakishly light cars.

Ok,.you're right.

Is that the same guy that bought a low mile, fairly original fox And shoved a blower and irs in it? :D

I committed to buy a fox from a friend this morning, didn’t expect him to be selling it but it’s a beautiful car for a damn good price.
