The 92 Coupe Blue Mustang started life as a special order item with Don Rositch.  Don knew he want a notch back coupe as they were stronger and lighter then the hatch back models.  So in 91 Don ordered the car as a daily driver and weekend toy.  Well the was build on the first run day with serial number 000093.  While Don owned the coupe, he performed an number of updates to the car like Wilwood Brakes and Vortec supercharger, Grigg Racing suspension, autometer gauges through out.  The car was driven to and from work in the bay area and open tracked on weekends with the Norcal Shelby club.  In about 94-95 time frame Don sold the car to Charlie Bruno who took the coupe to he next level.  Off came the Wilwood brake in place of the biggest brake system Baer made at the time for a 14"/13" rotors and four piston calibers.  The Nissan 300zx wheels would not fit over the new brake system so on went the 95 Cobra R wheels that just clear the massive brakes.  The stock 92 T-5 was replaced with a MDL enhanced T-5z five speed equipped with a 2.95 first gear and .80:1 OD.   I purchase the car in 2001 when Charlie Bruno passed away to become my personal Open track car.  The motor was tired and need to be placed with a A4 block four bolt main 327 stroked short block.  A Kevlar 10.4" Modern Driveline clutch handles the +500hp at the crank.  In recent year the car has seen track duty are Northern CA and OR tracks and is a lot fun to drive at speed.  Several safety items have been add to like a four point roller bar and five point seat belts and racing seats.
