what up errbody. my name is Craig and i live in the sticks of northern wisconsin and am in the StreeT SweepaZ Car Club. my hobbies are workin on cars,playin racing games,build 1:24/5 scale model cars,watch movies,and chat a couple forums on the internets. . in the winter i build model cars since its too cold out to work on my projects, and i dont have time with work

i have a 87 5th ave that i bought at a ford dealership for $750 (had a 85 that was startin to rust out on me). it was owned by a old guy so it was rust free and he had a new carb,computer,distributer,and radiator installed. i have takin the lean burn off,put dual exhaust on,changed the intake for a single plane 2bbl intake,changed the interior to black n white (mostly white), added a stereo system,a dvd player with a ps2 hooked up to it,10" chain steering wheel,14x7" 100 spoke wire wheels (were all chrome but i changed the spokes to black with straws)  i added a dip SE grille cross to my 5th grille to change it up a bit.. ive got a bunch of chrome underhood and plan on addind. ive got a chrome air cleaner,valve covers,breather,oil dipstick,powersteering cap,upper radiator hose,and heater hoses.  also got a optima battery with chrome battery terminals

update-12/12/08 picked up a near mint 74 dart sport FOR $2080 to replace the 73 dart sport i was gonna build up. i got a 2000watt amp,two 1000watt 10" subs,a 200watt Dual deck,a pair of audiobahn 6.5" and 6x9" speakers for it. ive also added a power trunk latch from a 5th ave! changed the original steering wheel with a 3 spoke grant wheel. i got a set of 13x7 reverse supremes for it,and built a custom grille for the old skool lowrider look, which im goin for. im also goin to get a 8 or 10" chain steering wheel,rabbit ear antennas, color bar, and dingle balls.

hell I like em both, but the cragar star wires are hard to come by, and I already have the supremes from the dart for it, and I know the supremes look damn good on my 5th lol

depends how low you wanna go, but your not gonna lay frame with either hydraulics or air bags. but if you just wanna give it a static drop you can crank the torsion bars down some and put like a 1" drop block in the rear (if you've removed the iso setup)

ok im sure no one here will like these ideas, but ive been looking at japan built lowriders (they're holdin it down over there), and these two got me thinking of ideas for the coupe

#1, split bumper with full length grille. I used to hate em, but the more I see em the more I like em, and its something I wanna do to the limo lol


#2, mercury cougar trunk bulge, I think it would look better then the round Lincoln continental bulge as they are pretty square cars



ive got a 3rd idea, but im gonna keep that one a secret :p
