I don't get on the VMf often enough (house hunting) but I always check to see whats happening with the local folks. There's probably a few more "lurkers" out there like me, anyway, I'm Jon from Norton.

tell me about it, you think your lonely, try being in westchester count, NY, I get no company at all, even the guys who I know around here od not show up

I think it's because we do not hav a classified section :smirk: :smirk:

I get a little tired of having to say" do you come here often"

I was wondering why there's not much going on in here. I guess we don't have a whole lot to say. I promise I'll post an update here next time I get something done with my 5.0 swap!

It looks like I'll have a custom wedgie for sale soon if anyone is interested. How about it?

Anyone going to the swap at Lake Compounce this Sunday?

Can't go to Compounce. Starting a bathroom remodel. Much rather be doing something mustang related though. Maybe next weekend.

Been on the Board for years and to be honest, this is the 1st time I've checked out the NE section. I'm located near Niagara Falls, NY and there is absolutely nothing going on in this area this time of year (and most other times of year for that matter). I have a 70 Mach 1 that's "in progress." It has been for quite some time. Fixed income (retired) doesn't work well with trying to fix up any Mustang. I'll be looking in more often.

I figure we'll try to go for a record.I'm usually a lurker but what the hey I'll chime in.I think part of the reason we're so quiet in here is that our location has the lowest number of members?It's just a thought but let's face it I don't see a ton of these cars on the road nowadays.Usually when I do it's at a cruise night or something and the person bought it that way or paid to have it done so they are enthusiasts but not quite to the level of most of the people on this website who take a more active role(hands on) in their cars.So I don't think they are looking to seek out other Mustang owners?Hopefully I won't get flogged for this reply.I've made a bunch of observations over the last 18 years while I've been working on and driving these cars.I think the whole demographic has changed dramatically because the values of the cars has gone up.In a sentence it seems to me like alot (not all by any means) of the classic Mustang owners that I meet these days just aren't that into the cars,They like them but they don't want to talk your ear off about them?Which is too bad.Maybe I'm wrong?
Lastly I won't be able to go to the swap meet this weekend but if the weather is decent I'm probably going to Englishtown on Sat.For the F.A.S.T. (Factory appearing stock tires) event.My friend is going to run his Fairlane in it.So I'll take the ride with him.

I'm a lurker for the most part but will join in when appropriate.

My car has been for sale for a while, it's time for a change as I want a new(er) drop-top. Unfortunately, it's not in one piece so that doesn't help.

The wife asked me what it would take to get it back together and running. I told her 4 solid days....that was 2 1/2 years ago and I've got -0- time into it. Kids, career, family, house, etc. all come first and I actually prefer it that way right now.

This was last winter's project at the mother-in-laws - only thing I didn't do was install the countertops:

That was just a warm-up to this winter's project(s) at my house as well as the continuation of renovations the mother-in-laws. This is what is going on right now at my house:
