Hello everyone im new to the forums a friend of mine introduced me and i wanted to introduce myself. My Name is Tommy im from Toronto Canada, I have been into cars my entire life i just turned 32 i own the oddball years i have a 1978 coupe it was my first car i bought at 15 years old, and while it was in for paint i was bored and bought one of my bucket list cars a 78 king cobra, when i was 8 years old my dad had one and we used to cruise all the time with the roofs off and as a kid we went to a local show and parked beside a white king with t tops you never see one let along two. fast forward 15 years later and i bought that car it took a year of negotiations but i brought it home. that is the car i will be pro touring i want to keep the body and overall look period correct no major changes but i want to make it handle like a brand new car modern suspension 17 inch wheels fat tires ac and drive anywhere with lots of power. I build a very mild 304 cubic inch small block aluminum heads hydraulic roller and when i convert my coupe to turbos i will be putting my little vortech s trim on the king as well, let me know what you think i will be asking for a lot of advice and opinions since i am new to pro touring, i have always been a straight line pro street kind of guy.

Thank you! thats exciting i love the pro street era, i was made fun of a as a kid when i bought my car i used to get the "fake mustang" all the the time but it never stopped me the potential of these cars is endlessl, and everyone that doubted me shut their mouth after my red coupe came out of paint with the body mods done. im building it as a street car but i want to race small tire been collecting parts for three years now engine is almost there is getting a 374 cube small block windsor with two garrett gt 3582 ball bearing turbos its a kaltrac car now i want to keep it that way to race stock suspension classes its a fun car to drive

Welcome to the site. Your red coupe is the first time I even knew they made a coupe in the Mustang II years. Very interesting seeing it. Good luck with the King Cobra. This will be fun to watch.
