Okay, a headache! Here's a link to my cardomain page: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/793178
It'll give you a quick look at my car some some other random nonsense. Here's the deal as the car stands now:
Motor, in good shape, but going to end up being replaced.
Transmission, also in good shape, but it's not a 5-speed so it's gone!
Body, considering it's celebrating 41 years come May (IIRC), It's in good shape, but needs a lot of work. Rear QTRs need to be cut off and replaced which is number one in a list of things I am having done by body shops.
Windows, front is cracked and leaks, rear leaks, front and QTR windows need new regulators and while I'm at it, I'm just gonna make them power windows.
Interior, a bit behind the times. The original interior was in decent shape, but I was not fond of the "break your neck" stock seats. All interior is getting replaced.
With new motor comes new suspension and new brakes all around.
Pretty much the only thing that will stay the same is the unibody.
I'm looking at about 30K+ before a paint job and the paint job is gonna cost quite a bit as well. It's gonna be a custom job and have about 10 coats of clear coat to protect the actual paint job.
All in all about 40-50K into the future (plus my living expenses) I'll have a nice, quick, safe classic Mustang.
I don't know about the server9 thing. I have XP too, and it normally tells me things like that and when I'm at work, we have crazy filters and stuff. I wonder what all that's about.
