1986 Mustang GT - Show Case
Late-Model Mustangs Must Travel In Groups
Ken and Pam Foley of Frederick, Maryland, have almost a complete set of late-model Mustangs. Just add an early SN-95 to the mix and they've got it covered. Son Chris owns the sweet, 90,000-mile '86 GT (they get nicer all the time) that has been treated to a Flowmaster after-cat exhaust, headers, an MSD ignition, and a cold-air kit. Outside, Chris has added a Cervini's ram-air hood and Pony wheels. Ken holds the title to the bone-stock '92 GT, which has just over 50K on it. Even Pam gets in on the act with her Mineral Gray '01 V-6.
Walter Mandel and his son cruise around Brick, New Jersey, in their respective GT Mustangs. Pop drives the '95 GT that has been treated to 3.73 gears, Ford Racing Performance Parts underdrive pulleys, a MAC cold-air induction and exhaust, and Cobra R wheels with BFGoodrich drag radials out back. Junior pilots the '90 GT, which is bone-stock. "I'm going to make him keep it that way while he's in high school," Dad says. Walter bought the '90 GT so his son would stay out of his '95.
OK, Ray and Bev Williams may own only one Mustang, but they've driven it to Phoenix, Arizona-twice-from their Cape Cod, Massachusetts, home. For that, they deserve some props. The Williamses have treated the 2000 GT to American Racing 200S wheels, Riken treads, a MAC cold-air kit, Eibach progressive springs, and an ABC Exclusive tonneau cover. Ray says, "We love the heck out of our Mustang. It's our daily driver with over 21,000 miles on it, and the car still looks brand-new."
The streets of Munster, Indiana, are under siege with this display of Mustang power. Michael Vanes owns the Laser red 2000 GT with a K&N filter, a Hurst shifter, Flowmaster mufflers, Bullitt wheels, an '01 hoodscoop, Eibach springs, and Steeda caster/camber plates. Mike Howarth pedals the Bright Atlantic Blue '98 Cobra that features just 16,000 miles on the ticker. Since Mike reports the Cobra is 1 of 224 in this combination, he chooses to keep it stock. Jimmy Giovingo prowls the streets in the silver '01 GT. All three Mustangs are driven daily.
Now this is just not fair-two SVT vehicles under one roof (even Editor Turner has only one SVT vehicle). That's right, Ronald and Marilyn Scott of Venice, Florida, own both the triple-black Cobra and the Lightning truck. The Cobra used to be Ronald's daily driver, but when Marilyn bought him the Lightning, she took over the keys to the droptop. The Cobra boasts a Vortech S-Trim, a Flowmaster after-cat, Steeda subframe connectors, Auto Meter gauges, an Autopower four-point rollbar, a Centerforce clutch, a B&M Ripper shifter, and Firestone SZ50 treads. As you can see, the Lightning is also black. It has received a Superchip performance chip and a K&N filter, with more mods to come. No track times yet, but Ronald's itchin' at the chance to take both down the quarter-mile.
Kevin Hein of New York City owns this rockin' '94 GT convertible. Since it rarely sees inclement weather, the GT has low miles, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been modified. Kevin has sent the car to Mustang Magic in Deer Park, New York, several times for upgrades such as Edelbrock heads, FRPP roller rockers and E303 cam, a C&L mass air meter, 24-lb/hr injectors, a Cobra intake, an MSD ignition, and a Pro-5.0 shifter. For looks, Kevin added Eibach springs to lower the car over gorgeous Borbet 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport treads. Damping forces have been much improved through the addition of Tokico five-way Illumina struts and shocks.
