    Car is stock minus the cam welds and rear wiring harness is insulated to prevent possible future problems. Currently has 41k miles on it and takes gold at any car SHOw I take it to. Some of these photo's are a little old since they have my old red 92 SHO in them also. My highly modded green 92 SHO is listed for sale on the forum also. Here is the link in case anyone hasn't seen it, but is interested: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=1202249

    replace/repair those seats, drop it, tint it and you're straight bro

    SHO's are rare, red ones even rarer...hold onto it bro!

    Yeah, most of them don't last very long after 40K.

    MilTownSHO, did you get the cam fixed?

    did you see the episode where Conan O'Brien took his old green SHO to a Ferrari dealer to ask what it was worth? Nobody believed that it was his car till he showed them the registration for the car.

    He pops the hood and points at the motor saying, "I call this the stable."
    The guy responds, "why do you call it that?"
    He responds, "Because that is where the 240 horses live!"

    FREAKING HILARIOUS

    Yes the cam's have been welded down since 32k. Typical failure is inbetween 60k-80k, but some have made it 200k with no problems, but better safe than sorry seeing the engine costs more than the car! :hs:

    Figuring there are only about 2,500 98's ever made and half of them are crashed or junked by now, it is a pretty rare car.

    Win's Ford show's mainly, but I have taken it to a few other ones! :bigthumb:

    they are slower than the V6 gen 1 and gen 2 SHO's. :mamoru:
