  1. The Karlsplatz in Front of the Heidelberg Castle was empty as never bevor. There are usually hundreds of Tourists here to take Pictures. Such a Phote would never be possible at normal Times. Strange feeling this Emptiness in our City. Corona makes it possible. It´s bad. Stay healthy and many Greeting from Heidelberg in good o´le Germany.... Klaus

  2. Yesterday, I was going through a box of old Mustang Monthly mags I had. I was just going through to find if there were any I wanted to keep before chucking them into the recycle box. Some of these I was given and I had never paid too much attention to them. Amongst them I found a pristine November 1981 edition which included a story about the Bullitt Mustang. Now, we've all heard various "stories" about the famed car(s), how they were built, driven and scrapped... or were they? The story eludes more toward the "stunt car(s)" rather than the camera car that was sold for 3.4 million, but at the end of the article, it just refers to "it". The stunt car(s) had roll cages welded in them, but the car I saw at Dearborn a couple of years ago, had no such roll cage. And the debate continues! If anybody is interested in any old back issues of M/M, I have some from the 90's and from 09. PM me if interested. Free, only pay for envelope and mail. EDIT: Pics did not load in correct order.

  3. Nice article, used to read MM cover to cover back in the 80’s when I was a teenager with my first car 65 C-code Honey Gold Mustang coupe. Then they got rid of Farr and MM went to crap 💩. Need to look and see if I have any mags left.

  4. Another cold and wet weekend passed. No weather to take the 73 for a spin, so went back to the driver side front apron replacement in my cold garage.. I'm afraid it's another boring post! The old reinforcement de-rusted and plated last week went in first. Same as seen on the other apron, the alignment holes were of the exact same distance and after making 7mm holes on the apron, marking them over on the reinforment to remove the zinc where the welds would be. Used the holes to align and welded the old guy in. The heat marks on the other side of the relatively thick reinforcement told me it should not go anywhere for a while! Next came the most time consumming part of the job, measure on car 10 times, make a template and slam the to be drilled fender holes corners. Starting 2mm to 5mm to finish with the progressive bit on 7mm on the most rounded once. Dremmel cut to connect the holes and finish with files to obtain something good enough. Just like on the oher side, the die maker thought pressing in regions totally off the position needed for the holes would be handy :) Rest of the work was to make the zillion holes that need to replace the original welds, test fit, clean up the metal on both car and new panel. test fit, and recheck all distances before clamp that baby to its definitive location. Many arcs later the garage wasn't that cold anymore and the car was robust on the front again! :D This country being reknown for its wonderfully dry air, I've added a quick protection against rust forming that I will remove later on when I'll epoxy the entire bay in one go much later on. I still have some grinding work ahead next week, but for now I'm pretty pleased that both aprons are in place. Pretty boring and tedious job it was! To be continued...

  5. Make sure you get the cam from someone that understands Cleveland heads, otherwise you'll likely get something better suited for a Chevy.
