I am new to the Ford game. I have been a Chevy man all my life ad just recently bought a 1992 Mustang LX convertible with the 5.0 engine. Found this site and bought several items so far. Everything was shipped promptly and arrived in good condition. I am finding out what everyone loves about LateModelRestoration. Great products at great prices. Only problem is I am spending too much money at this time, my wife is tired of me telling her about the things I am doing with the Mustang. She said she feels like the "other" woman now. I sure have enjoyed working on engines again, I didn't realize how much I missed it. Think I may just stay with Ford power after this experience, definitely be buying more products from LateModelRestoration.
