    New to the forum

    The first time I took notice of a triple black Mustang GT Convertible was when I was 12 years old and I saw one in my grandmother's neighborhood in Wildwood Crest.

    I was hooked.

    I finally took a shot at one at 19 years old when I found a 92 and test drove it. I loved it and wanted it, but my father wouldn't co-sign the loan. Next came a kick in the guts when my best friend called and asked if I was home. Upon saying "yes", I heard the distinct rumble of a 5.0 before my alleged "buddy" pulled into my driveway in a drop top Mustang. Dagger through my heart.

    I started to grow older, in age alone, and priorities shifted as they should. Finally, 24 years after the fateful day at my grandmother's, I have one and it is all mine. We found a triple black 93 GT 'vert and my wife let me buy it and get it fixed up. There is no legitimate reason for me to have bought this car outside of me simply wanting one and my wife clearing me hot to grab one.

    I took it to my buddy's shop (who also did Dan93fox's) and had body work done, got it painted, and also the front leather seats redone.

    It came with some bolt-ons and gears and the plan is for heads, cam, intake next year until the guy that fixed it up for me convinces me to put a blower on it in the future.

    We'll see...
