We here at SmokinStangs wanted to take a second to acknowledge a fellow enthusiast site & community.


Four Eyed Pride, also known as FEP, has been a long standing site dedicated the preservation of early model Mustangs, Capris and SVOs...specifically 1979-1986. FEP has become a trusted & respected resource for these period vehicles.

FEP and SmokinStangs.com are very similar in many ways, as we host/share similar members. Many of these members are from the North East / New England area, and are mature & respected equally among their peers within the enthusiast based community. Additionally we both maintain a high standard with regards to personally, as well as from a ownership perspective.

Relationship wise...we here at SmokinStangs feel as though FEP and it's members are like family. In terms of websites and forums, it is safe to say we are sister-like in nature.

Be sure to check them out some time:

FourEyedPride offers a tight-knit, friendly, helpful community that shares your enthusiasm for 1979-1986 Mustangs, Capris and SVOs. We currently have two ways of interacting with your fellow FourEyed Fans: An active message board and a chat room.

FEP promotes the preservation of the identity of each and every 79-86 Mustang and Capri. Many modifications can be done to a vehicle without changing its identity. This means we believe a Capri should look like a Capri, an EFI 2.3 turbocharged car should retain its turbo four, an early Fox Mustang should not be made to look like a later Fox Mustang, and Ford powerplants should reside between the shock towers.

FEP actively discourages and condemns the parting out and willful destruction of complete, running, and/or easily repaired cars. As these cars continue to disappear, our chances for the aftermarket to take on the reproduction of badly needed parts will continue to decline.

FEP welcomes owners and enthusiasts of bone stock base models as well as wildly modified race cars. We are neither a group consisting solely of sticklers for factory correct restorations nor powertrain elitists.

FEP does not condone bumper cover swaps making later (87-93/aero nose) appear to be 86 and earlier models, just as we do not accept earlier cars made to look like 87-later models. These swaps do not keep 79-86 cars on the road, and to accept swaps in one direction and not the other would be hypocritical as well as counter-productive. They often take hard-to-find parts out of the pool of availability for cars in need of them. We are about more than just the bumper covers. We are about the cars from this particular era of Fox.

FEP welcomes owners of all early Fox models, and we intend to include them in our coverage. These cars are: 78-83 Fairmont & Zephyr, 83-86 LTD & Marquis, 80-88 Thunderbird & Cougar, 82-87 Continental, 84-92 Mark VII and 81-82 Granada. Enthusiasts who do not own an early Fox are also welcome.
