Hi all, My name is Jim Mcdonald from El Paso,Tx. I own an 88 TC slightly
tweaked and a kinda nasty little 72 Ford Turbo Pinto..
My bird has all the mods necessary to make it a street sleeper, 3"
exhaust,MSD,"Super Chip", 3.73 gears,9" K&N,ported upper & lower,T5 swap
from A4LD and power everything,4000lbs quickest time is 15.50@ 89.It's
alright for my daily driver .
My pinto, that's a whole different story. I built this car to be as fast and
as light as possible.
