    All that hard work and effort and…It’s still a (ugly) 79 Mustang and I’d still be embarrassed to be seen driving it.

      Glad you took the time to share your shallow opinion with the rest of us. Hope you someday find the validation you seek.

    Great looking Mustang, I always thought these early Fox Mustangs were better looking than the later ones, unfortunately they weren’t as fast. This one takes care of that problem.
