I've been lurking. Now I'm an owner!
Greetings all - Yes, it's almost as exciting I suppose as having a new baby, or getting married... but AT LAST I found "just the right" Mustang for me: 1973 Convertible with Mach I Decor (trim) package, 351 4V CJ, C6, and nicely optioned: a/c, deluxe interior, Ram Air hood, Rally gauge cluster, p/s, p/b and... power windows!
Of course it needs work. What 46 year old car doesn't? I'll have to get it home and thoroughly, thoroughly check it over before I know what to start first. There are a few upgrades (tilt steering and cruise control) I'm hoping to add eventually. In the meantime, there's a few dozen "It's been in storage a long time" issues I'll need to address.
First Mustang I owned was a 3-year old 1971 Fastback that I got as a high school graduation present to myself; I nearly never got out of it (lol) until it was on it's last gasp. 3 years later my parents made me give it up if I intended to return to college and I'm not sure I've ever forgiven them for that (juuuuusssst kidding).
Better photos to follow; these are from the eBay listing.
