Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    88 Mustang Gt

    Post  Iramillwright on Sun Jul 25, 2010 9:18 pm

    Just got it yesterday. Butt load of work on the engine more than I know right now. But I found otu an odd thing. If a mustang gt is built in Canada it is titled as a cobra. No joke found out from the vin and a carfax. I thought it was a joke but google it. It has none of the performance stuff but, built as a Cobra none the less.

    Hi Don,

    I didn't know that about the Mustang. Did the one you got come from Canada?

    Later Man...

    My son had an '89 GT and it had the ground effects. As matter of fact I think all the GT's had it here.

    GT vs LX

    The mid 80s Mustangs - GTs had the ground effects and the LXs did not. The Cobras had Cobra specific ground effects.

    Mexican Mustangs

    Post  Boilermaker on Fri Jul 22, 2011 3:10 pm

    Mustangs sold in Mexico (1979 to 1986) had the Mustang front bumper/hood with the Capri fenders (front & rear) and the Capri hatch. There is no difference in the doors. It makes for a very interesting car. I would like to see this car with the 1979 Pace Car front bumper and the 1985 bubble back hatch.
