Thanks TMS! Only had to drive it in the snow a couple year, summer driver ever since. Love the Boss and 350. Decided if I could find a '13 Laguna that'd be the replacement. Let hope it doesn't come to that! LOL

You going to Blackhawk Wednesday? Saw a post you mention BH so I thought you might be around here.

Welcome. Nice looking Fox.

Surprised your T5 made it this long. I open tracked a ‘83 GT. I babied the T5 and grenaded it after only a few events. Also blew the OEM 7.5” rear. What was Ford thinking…302 “HO” (🤣)…weak 5 speed…and an even more weak 7.5” rear?

Changed to a WC T5 and a 8.8” and had no more problems. Lots more options now, albeit more expensive.

Congrats on hanging onto your first new car , as so many of us regret not having that first rolling piece of iron in our garage. My son kept his 95 Probe GT , but I have a only kept any car for 8 years and it is housed in the garage now ( not counting the race car). Have fun at Blackhawk and wondering if a 18x9.5 or 18x 10 would fit under the Fox wheelwells? Someone will likely answer that question.
