Default My first F-body

Just picked up my first F-body last weekend. It does have a rod knock, but I got it for a song. Initial plans are to replace the blown ls1 with a lq4 I had laying around from a past mustang project.

Thanks for the replies. I'm currently freshening up the motor. For now, this will be a stock rebuild. I want to get the car back on the road and enjoy it. I haven't had a running muscle car since I parted out my lsx mustang almost 10 years ago, so I'm pretty excited about it.

haha I remember that day was so good to get the 3800 out and know how close I was to getting the LS in. I've been pondering a convertible for a few months seems like it would just be a fun car.

I drove her to work today for the first time, 110 miles in all ( top was up. A little chilly out). She has decent power and runs smooth. The front struts make a little noise, but overall I'm really happy with her. Can't wait til it warms up again!

Glad you got her up and running again! The white top cars are pretty rare, aren't they?
