Last weekend was another first time I've driven a mustang since I started buying cars and parts cars back in October.

Yep, I'm not just cutting them apart anymore.

This is a 1966 coupe, still a 6 cylinder. It has rear 8" diff, and front disc brakes (early 70's).

It has automatic transmission (was originally a manual, as you can still see the clutch pedal)

The interior consists of 1 driver seat.

But, it runs (high idle, idle spring broke), and drives (very rough and stiff springs / shocks).

Very cool, it's amazing what a software developer and a father mechanic can do on a couple weekends.

IT'S ALIVE! Way to go young frankinstein.

It's always nice to drive them to get the cob webs out instead of pushing them. :thumbup:

That's great Geoff!

It's always nice to see them running and driving

BTW, I've got your doors stipped down to bare metal and the dents all hammered out. Just need a bit of skim filler (has been too hot to apply) a coat of primer and they'll be ready to go!

That's great progress. I have more time that money. I know about the heat, my pregnant wife reminds me daily. I had to fight off others at lowes to find and window AC fan on Sunday AM.
