This is for the old schoolers out there. They were located over on Division (180) in Arlington, about a mile west of Bowen. I purchased my first Mustang there in the fall of 1992. It was a midnight blue 1991 LX 5.0 hatch.

Of course it was a theft recovery, but it only had 8,800 miles on it and I got a great price. :D Anyone remember this crowd? To say that their business practices were a little on the shady side would be an understatement. Whatever happened to these guys?

The only people I've seen that could literally take two halves of a car, and put one together. "Shady" is an understatement. There is a long list of stories about that place...They make USA look like Sewell Village Cadillac.

I bought my 1st stang from them back in 95. it was a black coupe w/ a reconditioned title. If I had it to do over I would have never bought it but I was able to sell it someone for what I paid a yr later. Never buy a pieced together car;)

The mustang is still on the roof of that place. Hell ya, shady is an understatement. What a rip off they were. Can't imagine why they went out of business.

Yep, it's a horribly faded red GT convertible. I drive by that piece almost daily.

It's now some kind of aerospace office of some sort.

I'm looking around for the pics of that first Stang. It was a clean car, but when I bought it the airbag light was on. Being 16 years old and not giving a damn, it wasn't until after I crashed it did I realize that there wasn't a damn airbag in there at all!

It was an A0D and had the 2.73 rear end. At the time it was one of the quickest vehicles at Martin HS. :D Gawd we've come a long way.

I think thats the place I bought my old 92 F150 from. It was a theft recovery. I bought it in 95, before I moved to Michigan.
