“Now is the time” for all good men (and women) to come to the aid of their Mustangs!!!
The Fox body Mustangs have come of age…Don’t sell yours! Over the past several years, the prices of these future classics, namely the 1982 thru 1995 5.0, have been rising and holding their ground. If you have already gotten rid of one of your babies, try to find a replacement. Not so easy, especially in the N.Y. metro area. Now it’s time to take off the kid gloves and start caring for your Mustang – respecting it like the muscle car it deserves to be treated as.
Weekend Warrior — Street/Strip Racer:
You know who you are, and you are becoming the most common type of Fox body enthusiast. It is now time to get your priorities straight. By that I mean…GET A TRAILER &/OR TOW VEHICLE! We are located on Long Island and just in case you haven’t noticed, there is no longer a track in the driveable range. If you have ever been to E-Town or any of the other venues in the Northeast, a trailer is an absolute necessity. Don’t worry about your ‘stang being called a trailer queen, it is the only way to have a truly enjoyable drag racing experience. Breaking your car at a track that is located almost a hundred miles away can incur costs that can really add up. These costs can sometimes add up to about a quarter of the cost of a small car carrying trailer. Tow vehicles can range from minivans (sorry mom),SUV’s, Vans, Work trucks, or large family sedans. Hey, this is a reality of racing life in the 21st century.
The past few years have not been kind to this group, you guys are dwindling. You might be better off becoming a weekend warrior in this day and age. I know, it’s painful to leave your Mustang home, but remember…Today’s Mustang is tomorrow’s future valuable Musclecar! If you must, stay on top of all your maintenance issues and baby her as much as possible, one day she might not be replaceable.
