I'm really feeling the strain with trying to bring my child hood hotrod mustang back to it's glory.

I may need to sell it because of all the little expensive things that keep going wrong with it, since I have a son on his was.

The strut towers need the rust cut out an new metal welded in, I need all new bushings for the syspention, I need to re-seal the windshield, rebuild the engine and transmition as well no doubt, get a new alternator because it think that may be what's draining my battery dead everytime.

the pain looks like crap and there is hail damage dents in my mustang everywhere.

I'm just over welmed an stressed with the whole thing.

I dreamed about the day that I would get this 1989 Mustang GT to keep forever an pass on to my kids, and I got it after I came back from Afghanistan, but I was blinded by how badly I wanted it, and I didn't see all of the flaws in it. like all the weather striping is dry rotten and everything.

all I heard was the roumble of the 302 V8 and I was hooked.

now it seems like it will be short lived for me, because I can't afford to buy the parts it need.... sure makes my guts turn.


sorry for all of you that had to read this rambling, it's just my life right now.

if youre patient, you can get your car back to good condition. i try to do a thing to my fox every week, even if its something small. youre going to love having a son. ima show you some son/fox motivation pictures, lol. my son loves doing what he sees me do.

when i was doing my clutch, and i got out from under the car, this is what my son was doing in the first 2 pics






this is my son and new daughter
