Cool First time retired

I'm Russ in Pensacola, FL. I have joined the Gulf Coast Regional Mustang Club. I retired from the Navy and my wife let me buy my own retirement gift(s): '67 Coupe, Convertible and Fastback. Yes, I name my cars: My conv is my daily driver (Grim), fastback (Reaper) in a shop and coupe (Midnight) in my garage ready to pull the engine. Since Grim is black with white stripes and a red interior, Reaper will be candy apple red with white stripes and a black interior. Midnight will be night mist blue.

Sort of frustrated with the forum because I cannot find out how to Private Message someone. Any help would be appreciated. Is there somewhere that tells what a premium member can do and what a free member can/cannot do?

Looking forward to growing up in this vintage world!!

Welcome to the VMF, I believe that you have to have around 25 posts before you can PM or do certain other things on the forums. Nice looking triplets you have.

That’s a nice looking collection, sailor! Welcome aboard!
I have fond memories being on ship when I was a young Marine. I also gained a new respect for the sailors!

Thank you for your service!
Now that you are retired, you will have more time to round the stable into form.
