Im putting a run south together to Dallas area (for sure--Houston area maybe stretching it). Timeline after the winter in the north....its been a absolute messy 2014 start.

Andrew I got your body / trim pieces if your ok waiting for me to bring south vs shipping Greyhound.

and this run has been completed.......great seeing Ya'll in the big city of dallas......didnt forecast the amount of drive time was needed in such a monster each meet up was short! but great non-the-less.

thanks to the Houston area guys for coming up to Dallas!!! hope that worked out well for all!

till the next trip to TX...e.n.j.o.y

I still have my XR in Sugar Land. I moved last year and am fixing up the garage so that I can start working with it again. Need to repalce my rear subframe bushings and I'd also like to convert the rear drums to discs.

There is a guy on Craigslist in Houston selling two XR bodies, meaning whole cars w/o engines. They look to be automatics. He wants $500 each.

Rchard, I saw the two cars and I got it, one is a 85, dark blue, automatic with blue interior, car have a 5.0 V8 HO under the hood, and auto trans, need to be finished, electric radiador but the engine look nice, interior is in fair condition, and is blue, not my favorite color, the second one is a 87 blue, very good body, a couple of dents, very small, like new seats, and again, blue interior, no engine or trans, it'll be a part car, I want to use all the interior parts from this one to the 85,
We need to do a regional meeting, I have also a Fiat and two time a year, we spend a weekend at hill country with the fiat club people, beautiful roads there, we can do something like this, I did the trip one time with my XR, was really nice
A lot of people looking my XR and asking me typical questionns " Mercury what? " or "what kind of Saab"you know
