Been there done that. Funny thing how kids/family sometimes changes priorities. Mint original one owner 37 Coupe, mint Cal 56 vert, my dealer ordered 64 1/2 sig vert were each easily given up for family. IMO money spent is over the dam.

My '64 1/2 vert. Ordered May '64. D code 4 speed, handling package, caspian blue, accent group, Ford blue manual top.

'68 vert. driver. Owned since Apr '78. C code AT, AC, PS, P disc B, PT lime gold, standard black interior and top. NOS RF fender and left quarter.New top and folding glass.

Well, because of your intervention guys, I'm going to keep her and see it all through. I stood out and stared at her for an hour the other night, and realized I have this attachment to it now. You also reminded me of the feeling of sellers remorse and how much I miss a couple of the other cars I've built and sold.
Thanks for the counseling

I am doing little things here and there and still going back and forth on if I want to paint it or save for someone else to.

I think for what you would have lost on the car and what you would have spent on another car, you could have paid some people to help you finish it sooner and be ahead of the game.

Glad you are keeping it!

Congratulations. Only you can know what's right for your family. Mustangs are replaceable, kids aren't. My 68 vert sat in storage for 10 years do to family priorities. In my case paying for storing was the answer rather than selling.

Hope it works out,
Slim

Well, almost 2 years later and some slow progress due to a really exhausting work schedule/travel I outsourced the bodywork and paint to a buddy that has a shop. It's taking him awhile as he does a bit here and there but being winter, thats fine for me and I can keep both mine and the wifes car in garage

Should be all finished up in the next couple weeks.
