February Featured Fox Body
DeeAnn Harm's 1989 Mustang GT February 2018
It all started one day at the track. After watching her husband run his 1972 Maverick down the 1/8th mile track a few times, she wanted a car of her own. When he asked her what kind of car she wanted, she knew it had to be a Fox Body. Shortly after the search began, they found a neglected 1989 LX hatchback, got it on the trailer and took it home.

"Originally I just wanted a cheap beater I could play with on the weekends."
It was replaced with a 306 short block with 10:1 compression pistons, Ford Racing X303 Cam,
GT 40 heads machined with 2.02 valves and 1.6 Ford Racing roller rockers. The T5 tranny was kept, but the 3.08 posi rear end was exchanged for a 3.73.
After making a few passes on the track however, other changes were made.
They added a Weiand aluminum intake manifold, 750 Holly Street Avenger carburetor, 100 shot Zex nitrous plate system, tubular K member, adjustable coilovers, subframe connectors, and did a 5 lug conversion.
It wasn't long before DeeAnn changed her mind about the car just being a stripped down beater to play with on the weekend. Deciding to keep the AC, due to the hot South Carolina summers, she also decided it had to look as good as it ran. So the cosmetics overhaul began.
The original LX bumpers were the first thing to go. In their place a Cervinis Stalker front bumper was installed along with GT side skirts and rear bumper. Original old style hood pins were replaced with Quick Latch hood fasteners and shifter was replaced with a Steeda Triax shifter . The 2003 17"Cobra wheels were added along with one piece headlights and LED taillights to give it an updated look.
Pro Image Paint and Body did the body work and the mirror like, flawless paint job taking it from a drab Regatta Blue to eye popping Calypso. This is one head turner ready for its next 30 years.
