How's it going CC! Been a follower for a while and wanted to get a camera before I made a thread. Let us start with some background. I built a mustang with my dad. He is a mustang kinda guy and has an 88 Saleen and a 03 cobra. August 2010 I got in a wreck cause some lady lost control on the highway and pushing me across the highway with her causing me to be t-boned by an 18-wheeler. There went the poor fobra I built from ground up. Insurance covers some costs and my honda experience began. My brother had a eg hatch with a b16 swap that fired my love for the honda scene. I searched and searched for a good deal and came across a milano red Ej8(mother approved :lol:). Completely stock and had three spare keys and two key fobs with the maintenance oil change log in the owner's manual kept up with. I think I found something good:D

Holy crap. Brings a tear to my eye being a mustang guy myself. My dad will shed a few. He had four mustang a back in the day. The coupe looks nice and you look like you got a nice one.

Fortunately it was in great condition except for the Passenger rear quarter panel which has a ripple in it from whatever the owner before me did/bumped. Im also the second and plan to be the last owner of the coupe.:cool:

I guess if it wasn't your car it would be cool. Passion behind a build is key to it being a successful one no matter the car.

First thing down the way was H&R lowering springs, which I realized was a waste of money after I got coilovers, and a DIY grill. 96-98 can pull this off. Didn't look too bad for the year and a half I kept it.

P.S. First handful of pictures are phone photos. I have a camera now just cant go back in time without a DeLorean these days.

Found this one too. Spilled some coke in my car and I am ocd trying to be careful with my interior so I took out all the carpeting and shampoo cleaned it with a spot vac.
