    Default '78 Zephyr with some bolt-ons

    Here is my 1978 Mercury Zephyr. I got the car for Christmas when I was 14 years old as a project. (top pic) After driving the car through high school and college, I decided to redo the entire car. Well. Life happened. It sat unfinished for close to 10 years, until I got my butt in gear. Since completion, I drive the car everywhere. This year it is getting a complete TMI Interior as well as a built AOD.

    Yes, it is the same garage in the background. That is where the car was built.

    Thanks for all the compliments everyone!

    You've had this car for 10 years,.Surely there's a story that goes w/ the pics. I mean things like: Engine/transmission/rear, electrical, Horsepower/torque...

    You know....Stuff!

    That car is really great looking. And coming from one fairmont owner to another, If I would have built a P/S version, I would have done it much the same way.
