Nice first Mustang. Have fun restoring and driving your new classic. I know you are excited but your wallet is trembling in fear..... just take your time and do things slowly and do them right the first time as you make your car into your dream car. Keep us all updated with pics as it goes along and we are all here for any questions or advice you may need.

I envy those of you who have the time as well as the body, welding and mechanical skills to bring a car like this back from the grave. I was more into the instant gratification (I WANT IT NOW!) mode when I bought mine last summer-freshly and near totally restored.

I realize I'll never have quite the sense of pride you'll have in driving one you built yourself. But I was instantly taking my granddaughters for spins through the countryside with the top down. Trades offs, eh?

That colour is apparently what happens when you leave candy apple red in the elements for 20 years.
I appreciate all the well wishing and I want to let you all know that I plan to abuse your knowledge base as often as possible.

Keep us updated with pic progress, I like to see even the small minor amount of work done,...gives us all motivation,..!!

Seriously on the pics, keep them coming, even if its just you washing / cleaning all the crapoloa out of the interior the car!


Many of us LIVE for this, seeing someone elses progress gets others back on track.
