    Kelly, I noticed in one of your comments you live in Austin TX, I live just outside Austin in Pflugerville.
    Do you have any advice for someone just starting off with a newly purchased 1966 Mustang? I don't have much room in my tiny garage so I'm looking for some local shops that can do some of the work for me.

    Kelly,
    Saw on one of your posts where you mentioned that you would stop posting as many questions. Just wanted to say please don't stop. I for one look forward to your posts and all your write-ups. Your threads are always well written, informative, as well as entertaining. Anyway best wishes and hope you stick around.

    Hi Kelly.
    I read somewhere in a post about your Unisteer R&P unit. How did you resolve the discrepancy between the large mounting hole in the bracket and the 1/2 bolt that goes into the frame?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Hi again,

    Think you are right in your funding priorities - car first, especially now that you in fact use and enjoy driving the car.... all too often classic cars are exercised way too little.

    Never gotten around to the US vacation myself - that time will come and we have friends we need to visit while we're there. That will for sure be a good vacation too.

    Keep up the mustang-spirit

    Cheers
    Bebob

    Hi Kelly,

    Just saw your "signature car picture" and recognized your car from the 2-month round trip in the US.
    For the time being I am stationed in Kuwait, part of the coalition who fights in Iraq and Syria. In my spare time I read and listen to music, and by coincidence stumbled onto your mustang-travel-blog. It was very good reading and trip I most certainly envy you (in a good way). It gave me time to think of something else than the conflict over here - so thank you.
    I live in Denmark, northern part of Europe, and hope to do my own round trip of Europe in my 1968 Mustang Coupe - maybe it will be accompanied by a blog too.
    So I just wanted to say "good job - excellent reading and beautiful pictures - I wish it was me"
    Kindest regards
    Bebob

    Hi. Love the picture of your car posted May, 2014. The stance looks perfect. What brand and configuration of leaf springs and coil springs are you running? Thanks.

    Hi Shawn,

    I absolutely love the Hurst shifter. I believe that that is the standard shift knob/lever that comes with the shifter. It puts the shifter at exactly the right spot and gives it a nice long throw. Not too high up in the air and not too low to the trans tunnel. I'm a fan of the shifter knob - fits perfectly in your hand. I prefer it to the pistol grip ones.

    Hope that helps!

    Kelly
