SVO List: Introduction
Thought I'd do another introduction since everyone else is. My name is
Justin Condon and I bought an 86 SVO in late October of 96. It is Charcoal
Gray but has a bad Ford paint chip problem. The car has about 115k on it
so after doing a few repairs I thought it best to do a complete overhaul.
I am currently pulling out the motor for a complete rebuild. I plan on
using Crower rods and stock Ford pistons and possibly getting some head
work done. While the motor is out I will do some prep work for a paint job
and have it towed to a body shop. Transmission and rear end is also
scheduled for rebuild. When I bought the car it already had some go fast
goodies on it like (what I think is) a Super 60 T-3 turbo, 3"downpipe with
Borla exhaust, Eibach springs and a strut tower brace (which I am selling
if anyone wants it). I do not want my car to be a trailer queen. I love
driving it too much. I have been to many car shows and have seen evidence
that you can have a clean car that is a daily driver. I just want it to be
an 11 maybe 10 second streetable car. I love it my car and it consumes all
of my extra time. I think buying this car in fair shape and building it to
my satisfaction will be even more rewarding than buying a new one. This
group is the best thing that I could have discovered. I was on the Corral
techboard in April when somebody the SVO List to me and I have been here
since. The info discussed saves everybody time, money and headaches.
Can't wait till another San Diego meet is scheduled!!!!
