Comparing '92 GT to '11 GT

I loved my '87 LX T-5 5.0 too! But those cars are from a by-gone era, and for me it's time to move on.

Hey Patrick, There are lots of cars from the "by-gone" era that were very fast in their day and now they're no longer the fastest cars on the block, but, damn, they're still fun to drive! I can't justify spending 40K-60K on a new Mustang regardless of how fast they are, so I'll just keep pluggin' away with my 84 Capri RS 5.0.

I have a 93 5.0 8# KB, lots of people want to buy it for $2k to $4k, but I cant afford $30k+ for a new, so I keep the old, it is darn fast, found a bolt missing on bell housing and several others loose, tighten all, made a big difference

No doubt. But I've been driving a Fox car -- a 5-liter LX and Cobra -- since 1987. For me, it's time for something new. Plus, Ford this year has built a MORE than worthy replacement.
You can get plain 412 HP GT for $30K. And if you test drive one you'll likely start figuring out a way to get/afford one. ;-)

I also thought about upgrading/redoing my Cobra, but decided it's just easier to get a new GT.

Yup, when I brought in my 84 Capri to the local Ford dealer for an oil leak, they replaced pan and valve cover gaskets and a few other things. There were several folks in the service department that wanted to purchase the car, but I declined. It has only 67K miles on it and it is stored in the winter. Right now, there's a gas leak and the carb is wet, probably the same thing that happened 20 years ago when I had to tighten the screws on the carb top plate. I'll check it out one of these days, but I was looking in my tool box and I can't find my roundtoit. I still love that car!

I had heard with minor mods the old GT could put out about 430 bhp. True?
