i am selling my 1993 ford tempo special edition
why a special edition u ask. because it has been modified on many parts
the car has low kms.
nice clean engine that has no leaks and has been tricked out
car went from 90 horsepower stock to 130 - 140 horsepower which is pretty fast for a 4 door automatic car.
i have taken off the rear grill that most tempos have and i have put on a custom spoiler and if that is not kool enough the interior is a custom ROCK intereior and the car has lot of chrome

heres a list of parts on the car and upgrades i have done

ractive racing filter
ractive racing exhaust
carbon fiber hood scoop
carbon fiber rear lights - **CUSTOM MADE**
newer tires with nice hubcaps
engine parts from ford contour SVT - lots of horsepower

170,000 kms

the car price is $400 - yes for hundred dollars for a great 1st car

alpine rear speakers - 280 watts each speaker - competition
sony explod front speakers - 220 watts - competition
12" 600 watt subwoofer in custom jl audio box
wires are all there

so $400 without stereo

Bahahahhaa. We so need to do this. Everyone pitch in $20 and we'll go to the kid's house, buy the car from him and take baseball bats to it right in front of his face while videotaping from like five angles.

Who's down?

I am thinking it woudl be a lot of fun to buy and then play around with for a Straightpipe startoff party... We could run it with no oil and make a pool for how long it will run for $5 buy in, winner gets half. Then we could have a baseball bat deal where you pay a bit of money then get a couple mins with the car.

Maybe we can do something like that next spring to start the season off at Speedway.

I've seen that ad before and I can't tell if it's a joke or not. I'm sure the seller is selling. Just wondering if he's just making fun of the Tempo he's selling.

$500 isn't bad for a still running POS though! But I'm all for the idea of buying it as a group and smashing it.

I'd throw in $40. We need to get up to all sorts of shenanigans. Take it out to Castrol and line it up beside that blue Cobra.

I'd be in for $20. Maybe $40 if a video of the race AND a demolition derby was sent to the previous owner.
