History
It was originally my wife's car from before we meet back in 2004...funny story it was over heating and had no breaks I offered to fix it! We hit it off! She drove it for the first 120k not really doing much in the name of taking care of it my 95 valcon died two years ago and I bought her a new car and started driving this one. from day one started rebuilding it not only for reliability but also for fun
