    Default Calling all history buffs

    Hey everyone,

    As a high school student, I have to do a research paper on a topic of my choosing. And I decided to do it on our very own, 3rd generation Mustangs. Not limited to the 4i, can be relating to the Aeros too. I'm looking for articles and any little bits of history leading up to the release of these foxes and how they came to be, specifics of the platform and what makes it special, any bits of information anyone can scrounge up. I'm also doing my own research but any little bits of information anyone might have, articles, whatever. It'd be greatly appreciated.

    Are you interested in suppliers of Fox platform parts?
    I worked for a company that made upper and lower steering column shafts
    for Panther then Fox, and later platforms.
