To date I have never done anything to her other than normal maintenance work you would expect. Tires, brakes a couple of light bulbs. For it's weight @ 4200 lbs or 2tons the car has plenty of power and handels better than you would figure on a full size 4 door. The ride and comfort for a full size muscle car is exceptional to say the least. Many changes were made to it so it would stand out above the Grand Marquies. No more conventional stearing has rack and pinion. Forged control arms with a better front and rear suspension and larger sway bars. Heavy duty transmision and coolers for it. Mustang rear end gears and so much more.
Outstanding performance and handling from the 32valve 4 over head cam engine and drive train. A lot of comfort never feel like you need to take a break drving it on trips. Better gas milage than expected. Can get up to 25 on the highway and 18 around town.
The only thing that should have been an option is a Super Charger from the factory other than what was available @ the time. Also needed larger brakes considering the power and weight of the car.
