Default Ragged out Foxes

I hear a lot about F-cars being ragged out but I noticed every fox I see is either really clean or ragged to ****. I have seen a bunch that had sun roofs put in and are rusting all around it or rusting like crazy on the hatch, just generally beat to hell. But what I dont get is the ones that are ragged to **** people ask a ton for when they sell them, espically if its a 5.0 notch. Whats up with that? The stangs do seem to hold their value a good bit better, I still wouldnt mind getting a clean 94-95 Cobra. I guess the Foxes are just really old and a lot have been ragged on since the 90s. Are people starting to restore the fox body cars now a days?

50Resto carries a lot of restoration parts for the old Foxes. It's getting harder and harder to find one in good shape, but look at it this way - the newest one you're going to see is 14 years old...How many other 14 year old cars do you see in any kind of good shape?

Its REALLY hard to find clean interiors in the south, for coupes at least. I've been busting my *** trying to find nice black interior panels, but they're highly coveted items. I ended up painting pretty much everything, and doing custom door panels for my car. So far it looks pretty good though.
