And of course, with the birth of the artist came the inevitable afterbirth - the critic

Thank's, they look almost stock from the top and they pass tech for a vintage racer. I'll be glad to help if anyone wants to make or get some of the parts I make.

Some links to my lower arm mod. Link 1-5 is a '67 arm, link 6 is a '65.

Yeah, WOW! Very nice workmanship.


One thing great about getting older. A life in prison sentence is less of a deterrence

Thank you, I have another mod that goes along with the upper arm if you us wheels with a lot of backspacing. Sometimes the tire will hit the outer shock tower under full joust.

click on the pic in my signature. i have done many monor mods, such as deleting my antenna and front side marker light, painting my rear turn signal bezel body color, 71 mach 1 gas cap, removing stainless rings around taillights, painting my tin grille molding flat black, adding a 429 hood scoop, and many, many more to come, especially in the interior. just ordered new guages and many other parts from summit yesterday, so i have many more things to complete, and the pics will be on my site as soon as i am finished with the mods.

Pretty simple modification.

It solved my "I want to keep the original GT exhaust tips, but they're too restrictive" problem.

65 GT coupe. 351W. Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, manifold, cam. Hooker Super Comp headers. 2 1/2" exhaust. Toploader. 9" with 3.70 trac-loc. 4 wheel discs. Leather seats. The actual car I learned to drive in over 45 years ago (except for the mods!).

I really ought build a website somewhere I suppose. In the meantime I have some pics at ClubPhoto. So I'll post a few smaller ones.
I've done quite a bit of stuff, nothing really big. I'll leave out the stuff very likely to be changed and stuff I haven't taken pics of.
Early on I bought a TCP "X-brace" and made my own subframe connectors around them and the car itself. I haven't been able to take a good pic of what all this looks like installed so here's the last one before that. My bits are gray primered. The wider sections are where the rollbar hoop braces go through the floor and mount.
My package tray with speakers hung underneath.
I installed a Competition Engineering 8 point rollbar. Standard kit stuff mostly but I quickly realized I wanted swing out door bars. Available stuff seemed pretty cheesy to me so I made my own latches and hinges out of solid steel. Took forever. The hinges are constructed similarly.

My "needle bearing" version of Opentracker's fine roller spring perches. They look good and fit well but unlike Opentracker's they are as yet UNTESTED. Do not try this at home.
My Chevy something swapmeet overhead console. I covered the base with extra headliner material which isn't real obvious in the pic. The color is a darker gray than the flash makes it look. I connected up and modified the electronic compass and thermometer setup from a 99 Explorer to fit in there. Not easy but it all works (finally). My dash area was maybe getting too cluttered so I was happy to have some room for a set of rocker switches in it too. The wires in my roof and sail panel went from one to the domelight to 27. Including a couple for the "radar" intrusion sensor for the car alarm hidden in the rear of the console. (If you just stick your hand in the open window of the car when the alarm is on, it sets it off)

And lastly my '77 Mustang II console with center mounted emergency brake (which needs a black leather handle) and a little of the very "Recaroish", if not actually Recaros, '88 Conquest TSi black leather seats I have in there.

.... it wouldn't be the first time reality took theory and conjecture out behind the woodshed and gave them a good thrashing.
I have some cars. With a long list of parts on them that if anyone was interested in, they'd ask.

Well If anyone wants to click on my truck and trailer they can go to a few pictures of some of things I've done to my 65. Its not a website but just some photo's.

If your interested take a look. After a couple trips to the track :track: to prove to myself and others I'm totally nuts and the car would do everything I had hoped it would do. Car's started on hopefully last time major mods project which will make it more extreme and finshed than its ever been in the 25 years I've owned it and will be off the road for at least a year or more.

Then to spend the rest of its life cruzin to shows and turning heads wherever it goes and leaving the the track to the track only car I'm going to be building.

I can only claim credit for the tear-down work on this and it's only partially Mustang-related, but here is a link to my CatVert custom conversion project.
