Why do you think you will win the Charity Challenge?
You can get way more performance for the money building a late-model 5-liter Mustang than any other car!
How did you get your vehicle?
We found the vehicle on eBay. It was about an hour's drive away. We bought it sight unseen. The car was as cherry as the owner described. What we didn't pick-up on was the owner saying how great it sounded when you started it up. He said it sounded like a big block. That was because the car had no exhaust!!
What will your vehicle be able to do that no one else's will?
This car will be a fun ride that will make heads turn and have some collectible value.
What kind of person would you want (or NOT want) to bid for and win
We want a Mustang enthusiast to get this car so they can drive it and enjoy it-not someone who will make it a trailer queen.
What's the plan?
Add an exhaust, upgrade the turbo, add better braking and suspension parts and add an engine management system to improve driveability.
What are the major milestones or phases of your build?
The exhaust would be first, then the brakes, turbo and engine management, then the suspension and last, appearance products as money allows.
