Always learning new things...

Hey Gang! New to both this site and ownership of a vintage Mustang. My father-in-law just gave me his old Mustang which has been sitting in storage in Connecticut and has not been started in 30 years! Car is very solid, not anywhere close to a show car but paint still looks good and plans are at the moment to make it a fun weekend driver. 1966 Hardtop with a 200 CID I6 and a 3 speed man on the floor. Been working on my regular cars forever but first time with a car of this age. Already having a blast and already have a million questions!

Nice looking Mustang, now.you really know your father-in-law accepts/likes you because he gave you his pride and joy. And all along you thought that was his daughter. LOL. Welcome to the VMF.
