  1. Bodywork is progressing along nicely. Floor is cut out and epoxy primer applied to the bare steel. A big shoutout to Don at Ohio Mustang Supply! Thanks to OMS replacement metal is on the way. The excitement in my wife's voice and the expressions on her face are priceless this week. The journey continues...

  2. I recall posting a craigslist ad from Saginaw Michigan on this site a few months ago. The subject was a somewhat clean looking 351C mach 1 1972? relatively intact but well worn with the engine out. The asking price was $5000. which did not seem to be a bargain to me but not insane either. "Someone" from Carolina responded that the price was outrageous and that he bought running driving cars all the time for $1000-1500. I was confused at the time as I don't see any $1000. running cars like that in MI or down south when I went down "car scrounging" a few years ago. Now after seeing pics of his car for sale I understand completely. If I am selling the car, its worthless, if he is selling it=priceless. I know its a free country but flippers hurt hobbies.

  3. Anybody try or recommend a good bolt-on fiberglass mach 1 hood, fitment issues better than steel dynacrap hood? I have my HEAVY, original mach hood, but needs major welding. Below hood bolts right one, saves much weight, too. Was looking at hood from Unlimited products in CA. 1971-1973 Mustang hood Features full inner structure for strength (except for MU200T). Smooth gray gel coat finish. Bottom has full liner. Scoops are functional.http://www.up22.com/MustangPhotos/MU200-300.jpg[/img] For race weight version, order MU200T http://www.up22.com/MustangPhotos/MU200r-300.jpg[/img] http://www.up22.com/MustangPhotos/MU200f-200.jpg[/img] Have run their tall boss 9 bolt-on scoop for years Underside showing front latch and rear mount.

  8. You might not be able to start the car without the I terminal wire attached to the starter solenoid. Better to keep it attached, then start the car, then remove the wire from the starter solenoid, then turn the key off. If the car continues to run, the ignition switch is probably faulty; it is stops immediately, the starter solenoid is bad.

  10. David, think again about what you've written - all of it. It's all part of a conversation, not just pot shots here and there. Based on all of that, you're basically throwing rocks at people who disagree with your opinion of what people should actually do, and/or those aren't interested in your [overpriced] car (Hey, you so much as admitted to it - tell me I'm wrong). Calling most people 'talkers and not doers.' That kind of pisses me off. I'm sorry, but I didn't exactly 'talk' my car back together. What I didn't already know, I learned here and by actually doing it myself. So many others have similar stories. Proclaiming that you don't have a wife telling you what you can or can't do, or can or can't buy, insinuates that 'most people here' do, with an air of arrogance that I actually find offensive. I, as well as most people, couldn't care less how much people can afford or are willing to spend on their cars, because this site welcomes everybody from all walks of life to share their experiences, information, and opinions regarding all things '71-'73 Mustang. Believe it or not, I actually admire those with the skills and wherewithal it takes to restore these fine automobiles. Bashing people for their choice in restoring a rust-pile rather than buying something they're not interested in simply because it makes more sense [to you] to spend more money up-front is insulting - especially when you basically admit to being one of those overzealous and greedy flippers that so many people despise. So, I must be a lawyer [or congress person] because I can write well, and feel like I need to break things down when you apparently don't understand what is being said?! Well, let's just say that my motivation comes from years of experience in dealing with similar, like-minded folk, and that I won't make any comments about your being from the backwoods in the South suffering from old fartitis, because that might be insulting to old farts from the backwoods of the South everywhere. And I'm not even going to dignify any comments about impeachments (past, present, or otherwise) with further response, other than this is the wrong part of the forum for any discussion of that topic.
