 Here's a pic of James's car when he first got it compared to present day. WOW, what a change! As you can see James has put a lot of work into his car.

                     

  The main reason I painted the car the way I did is because I hated the fact that my car looked like every other Stang around. I was one of the first to have the emerald green in New Orleans. Then I kept seeing more and more green ones just like mine. So I put on the chrome ponies. Eventually there were green Mustangs with chrome ponies riding around town just like mine. So that's when I started saving up some cash for a paint job.
  I spent approximately 6 months looking at possible colors and combinations before settling on the blue and silver. I saw that there were aftermarket sticker stripes that were available, but I didn't want big ass sticker stripes on my car. So I had them painted on. My buddy Chris, who owns Rocky & Stymie's Body Shop, gave me a great deal on my paint job. He's the only other person who knows the paint codes I used. Sure enough, over the past year I've been seeing a couple of  Mustangs with very similar paint jobs riding around. But their colors are not quite the same. I suppose imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
   I decided on the chrome Cobra R replicas because of the price. I wanted the real ones, but the replicas came with tires. At the time I bought them, I still had the chrome 16's. I really like the replicas, but they're a bit on the heavy side.
  After about 7 months of researching heads, cams, etc., looking at what was working for guys and what wasn't, I finally decided on my current set up. If I could have afforded it, I would have gone with an Ed Curtis cam. But the TFS1 was #2 on my list, and it's a great cam.
  As far as the history of the car, the pics show most of it. When I bought it in Dec. 1995, it was a Demo model that had 6,532 miles on it. As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to buy it. It was really hard to find any 5 liter SN95's. All the dealerships had were 96's w/ the 4.6. After I drove the 4.6, I knew I didn't want one. The only things I wish my car had are black leather seats and a rear window defogger. Who knows, I may end up with the black leather anyway! To date I have 37,600 miles on the car. And only approx. 300 with the new engine parts. This car got me home on the holidays when I was in the Air Force, so most of the miles are highway miles. Now she spends most of her time in the garage under a car cover, and only comes out to play when the weather is nice.

Here's my car one week after I bought it (bought it on Dec. 22, 1995).
 Shown with my first mod, tinted windows, 10hp:)

 


Mod #2, chrome 16" ponies. Knocked off close to $600 in the 1/4 mile:). 17" tires were getting expensive. So the folks at Mustang Parts Specialties gave me a good deal on a swap!

 

And the final pic with the new paint and the Cobra R replicas!


All of the pics look great but I do think this last one says it all. Great car James!
