I bought the car about 2 months ago... an '87.
Red...don't know the name of the color. I like to call it "Ticket-Me First" Red
Now after reading all your info. I now know I was right by feeling about
the mushing and notching shifter. I use to own many,many Stangs and feel the difference.
Now until I can find a mechanic nearby..who understands this car,
this is my dilema. I found someone in CT, 2 hours away, not bad..but looking still closer to drop car off.
Before I can enjoy the car fully I would like someone to make sure about all you mention. Don't want to overheat her at all.
I will keep asking around and seek someone as informative as you.

Soon as I have the car I'll introduce myself more properly (and in the appropriate forum ) but I'm Canadian - From Ottawa. Should be visible in my bio now.
