Yep, Firebird is going. Anyone want to buy a '89 Firebird. 2.8 V6 w/5 speed. AC/Cruise/Tilt Wheel. Bright red w/grey interior. Blaupunkt AM/FM detachable HU w/10 CD changer in rear. 112k miles in good condition? $2k takes it!

Enjoy and get ready for a smile that just won't go away!!

thanks..

I drove an '04 GT yesterday to make sure I fit in the car before I had them get the Mach from another dealership. Even that was a blast to drive. Can't wait for the Mach. Last 'Stang I had was a 65 with a 400 hp 302 under the hood. That was back in '84 and I still miss it.

We are going to be getting a 2nd Mustang for my wife. She wants a 64.5-66 Convertible. Gotta find one of them now :D

Zuk Stays!! BTW, it has a new name (thanks to a certain individual that has a secondary nickname that comes from the sea!!). It's been branded the Zukkini.....ugh!

Thats a good one.. They both are green and don't tell me Lindsy thought of that name.. Atleast you ain't named TP.. I guess I'll be infamous for my actions from now on.

Oh man, you haven't even driven the Mach yet. You're in for a treat :D It handles much better then the GT. Lots of changes to the suspension and the Mach has sub-frame connectors from the factory to help stiffen up the chassis.

I read up on all the suspension/engine changes, and I've been itching to drive the Mach, but the closest dealer that has one is about 2 hours away. I'm gonna take it for a THOROUGH test drive tomorrow before I hand over the check. I was trying to have Donna on the Mach 1 owners board run the VIN to make sure it's never been damaged, but I'm getting a sql socket error over there now....

[edit] board is working now. musta been a momentary glitch.

We are all envious of Rick & now Jeff since Sue gets to get a new Mach 1.. The Mach 1 is definately not worth comparing to a Firebird.. So who will be driving the mach 1, Sue or Jeff? Or will this be a future car for Rachel.

I see quite a bit of dirt in those wheel wells already Jeff. Did you try taking it offroad? That's no way to treat a fine piece of machinery like that. :nono:
