Default Old timer but New member!

Yeh, I'm an Old time Mustanger but new member here so be easy on me! Ive been building Mustangs for decades, and still at it ! I still have my 89 GT Fox body, I bought new, well it has gone through a few changes over the years and logged many fun miles to lots of events all around the country back in the day. You young guns and Johnny come latelys may have never seen it, so here are a few pictures. Back in the day it was pretty Bad ***!
Thats right it's Chopped ! see more at www.autokraftnebraska.com

Hmm, don't quite know what to think about that one.. Bonus points for thinking outside of the box, but it just seems too squatty to me.

Like I said, good job being original.. I'm gonna give it a few days and revisit it before I stick my foot in my mouth!

I'm not sure about the bodykit (haven't decided on the chop yet), but I dig the color.

Welcome to the site!

I think it's pretty sweet. There's a couple minor things I would have done different, but still it's bad ***. post up some more pics when you can.

Dude, that car is seriously sick. Chop looks sick, but low as hell lol. How tall are you lol?

****** love the rear valence with the quad exaust comin out the holes.

9.5/10, lose that hood and shove a 36" cowl on her! [just kidding, but a 3" cowl would flow so well]

Well back in the 90's these Fox Mustangs were running rampid, being a body / restoration / custom guy, I needed something that stood out from the crowd. May 15 1990 I tore into my basicly brand new Mustang and chopped it ! hand made the qrt panels from flat sheetmetal, streached the frt fenders, extended the rear wing 4 inches, fabed in BMW headlamps (before the "projecter lamp" fad) 6 point cage, GT-40 w/paxton supercharger, and many other mods. It also lead to Kenny Brown and I to further advance the Short Wheel Base Thunderbird SC's that Ford was toying with to be the next genaration Mustang (whole nother story there!) Yeh I started using Grabber Blue back in high school on my 68 Fastback S code Mustang. I think Ford forgot about the color until in 1986 I rebuild a wrecked (new at the time) 86 GT mustang and painted it grabber Blue, it looked sharp, might still be around the Denver area? here are a few more pics of the chopped 89 GT.

That's ****** bad *** man. I always loved the fox body, but never could afford them. Now when I can just about all of them are **** or more than I paid for my 02. Nice ride.

Well quite the range of coments but thats to be expected, awsome, bad ***, sick, weird, not sure ! thanks for all, visual impact is what it's all about! Not much into drag racing, driving across country, and road course events, 20 other cars, and crazy drivers, like Road America 4.2 miles of open track and the hammer down, better have GOOD brakes!! Here are a few pictures of the Tiger Racing Mustang we did back in 03 a lot of body mods and cool paint job, It is also on X-box video game ? I'm sure some of you have seen it.

You can only tell you're doing it right if people are as vocal as they have been. Some will always like it some will always think it's the worst idea evar.

You did absolute master-craftsman work regardless of the personal taste of the audience. Stick around and please contribute the obvious wealth of knowledge to the kiddies.

It's been a long time since I visited this site, so here are a few current pics of the chopped fox on it way to Vaegas for the 50th Mustang shin dig at the track, it was a great drive there and back from Nebraska. Good to see a few other Fox bodies out there. These Nevada Highway Patrol dudes made me do a burn out in frt of them! now I need a new clutch! On the way home I Found my dream car in Green River , Colorado a 61 Comet 2 dr wagon! now that's rare!
