Default Hello from SIN CITY

I live in Las Vegas . My baby is " EPYON" a 1990 THUNDERBIRD SUPERCOUPE with a big block and a blower (in a few months) and my other car is a 99 Crown Vic P71 Police Intercepter. I was looking for a 5.4L DOHC intake for the engine and came across your site. The cars look cool, so I stayed

Yay!!! Welcome MRSXR-5.
Same here girlfriend...with the other half always on here!
Now we can kick the guys off and have more of a chat!!

I should probably introduce myself to everyone else seeing i'm on here.

As you can see i am MRSXR-8 and i own an 2001 AUII XR8 with the 220kw engine in Venom Red. I very much love my XR8 and he gets very dissappointed when I tell him that he's not allowed to drive as it's MY baby.
BTW my other half is Group C on here.

Test driving a BA Mk II XR8 tomorrow, if I like it will be ordering a BF XR8 on the same day.

Hi I'm telstargal....like most females i have a certain attitude towards cars (clueless) and this is primarily the reason I have joined this site -- to learn. I was pretty much ready to sell my car (1987 TX5 telstar) because I'd had so many problems with it, just when I thought things were perfect a certain member of my family went & crashed it, putting out the wheel alignment BADLY.

My brother is also on the site, but he would kill me if he knew I was posting... hee hee.

hey everyone!!
I just purchased my first car so i thought it would be a good time to start posting on this great site. My car is a Mk2 escort for door with a 2litre (bit of work done) jelly bean mags and a few other things. Will probably post some pics in the showroom when i take some good ones.

cheers,

Howdy everyone!
Just joined and was cruising the site and thought I'd better say hi. I am currently rebuilding a XP Coupe. It will one day (hopefully in the near future) be a street machine/showcar, but there's a bit of work to do. It's currently powered by a 289 windsor....but will soon be upgraded to something a little more powerful. I'll try to get some pics up soon and start a thread in the projects section so you can all keep up with my progress.
Just warning you....if I get stuck I will be asking questions!!!

Hello Everyone,
I just discovered your Forum yesterday as I was browsing for more info on FPV and similar vehicles. I thought this might be a good place to start looking.

As you can see I am from Canada and I am a Mustang enthuist, I notice you guys (and girls) have quite an interesting assortment of Performance Cars available to you, all of which are not seen really anywhere here.

Here's the details on my Car to get things rolling:


And my mod list can be viewed here:
http://www.svtoa.ca/cutecast/cutecas...14&thread=1164

Also I have made a few videos of the club I belong to in action, one of them can be found here:
www.svtoa.ca
Just scroll about halfway down the page and you should see a link

That brings me to my next question, Do you have any videos available of your cars/cruises? See pictures and reading stats from magazines is fine but you really don't get a feel for a car until you see it move.

Anyway, thanks for having me and if you have any questions/comments feel free to post them here or email me.

Darren
