When the Motorcraft I put in the Cobra last August got lucky bought before they got rid of the pro rate so got a little back from Ford decides to go I’ll probably just run Costco Interstate batteries hard to beat the price.

I see Menards has AC Delco. I may try that next time. Looks like the motorcraft batteries went up in price.

They did, I called a few local dealers. One wanted $215, another $180 I couldn’t believe it. I paid $139 for the one previously that only lasted a little over 3-4 years so I got one for $100. I’ll use Costco next time. That’s what I got in my F150 is an Interstate from Costco.

These dang batteries....

Looks like the optima has taken a crap to. The CCA is 800 and after a charge I'm only seeing 510....

This battery is from 2019, but geez. I remember getting 9 years from a Napa gold battery in my old truck and my last motorcraft in the cobra lasted about 10 years.

I'll be going with a less expensive like we mentioned. This AC Delco has a little less CCA at 735. I don't recall the price, think it was around 120-130 dollars.

Grabbed the last one from Menards. Manufacturer date is 11/23.

Much cleaner and better fitting than the optima. Hopefully it performs well.

Nice CCA jump from 510 to 732, Brady. Good move on the Delco replacement. Like you said, very clean looking installed.

Definitely thanks Bob. This is the previous style cable ends I was running. Never liked it.

Hello Everyone,

Well, I went into the garage a rearranged the cars in my plexiglass display cases. I have been collecting more and more GMP Fox Body cars and wanted to have them all on display.

Turns out my collection has gotten quite extensive :p. After placing every Fox Body I have on display it turns out I have 55 Fox Body GMP cars.

As mentioned before, I'm only missing the Red Summer Special (convertible) and I have no idea which SSP cars I'm missing.

Just know the collecting will not stop LMAO!!!! Yes, I'm an addict LOL.......

So, here is my updated display of Fox Body Mustangs.....

Thank you. However, you do have the one I'm missing :D. Ready to sell it? LOL J/K. I'm keeping an eye out on eBay. One will pop up sooner or later.
I've thought about selling the 88 white GT and the Calypso notch that I just bought. Too many other car parts I need to buy.....

The white GT won't be cheap. Ones with minor defects have been going for 300+.

Yep, you are right Brady. I was pissed because I missed the direct order from LP diecast for that white GT. So, I had to buy one off eBay. Cost me a little over what you stated. :mad: LOL....

My advice to you is hold on to it a little longer. Right now a lot of folks are selling them. In about a year, when they are few and far between, you could probably make even more on it.

I'm not sure about the Clypso notch. If I remember correctly it's an ACME exclusive. So, it may go up in value later as well.

You are probably right. I don't really need to sell. I thought about putting a crazy price on eBay and just let the listing go on for who knows how long LoL.

Hell, I've seen that 7-up convertible Fox go for around $600 on eBay.

I don't blame you for liking it so much. I'm not a vert guy. So, in the beginning I was only collecting notch's and hatch's. Then my desire turned to collecting them all LOL.

So, by waiting to collect them all I have found that I have had to pay a pretty penny to get some of those verts. The white GT Vert and the 7-Up vert were the ones I had to pay the most for.

I have notifications set up on eBay. So, if and when this red one gets posted I should be notified. There is one on eBay right now, but the guy is asking $525. I don't want it that bad. Yet LOL......

Swapped plugs in the 93 reef blue hatch. I thought maybe it had the original plugs being the mileage and still rocking the original plug wires.

I may swap out the original plug wires and store them away. They do need a cleaning.

Anyway, looks like I have some old Split Fire plugs! I also ordered a new pcv valve screen and grommet. Already have a new pcv valve.

We are finally getting some rain, and next week I see 60's. Might be starting up some cars next week!
