  1. Check out these pictures I took! Been sitting on the lift waiting for the trans and brake booster pin to get figured out. The kids misplaced the pin that attaches the booster to the brake pedal. Can anyone take a picture of theirs so we can turn one down on the lathe?

     

    Thanks for the welcomes and I hope to eventually put an AOD into mine. Does anyone know of an AOD swap kit for the 390 FE motor?

     

    My dad had a 68 Galaxy 500 the same color as yours when I started driving. I think the color was called Royal Maroon. I got to help dad drive on a family vacation right after finishing driver education. I guess that is what made me always like Fords. I remember thinking that Dad's Ford drove much better than the Plymouth Fury that was the driver ed car.

  2. I have been riding for over 40 years and still love to ride. I currently have a couple of BMWs, an R1100 rt with Hannigan sidecar and a K1100LT solo. I also have an old 400 Honda that i use for local errands. The wife and I are going on a cross country trip to California next week and plan to attend the Griffith Park sidecar rally. In October I am planning on riding with my buddies to Birmingham, AL to the Barber Vintage Festival by way of the Dragon in TN.

  3. I just got back from this event and there were several 71-73 cars there. I saw last month's COTM there and had a nice visit with mustang68's better half. Also I had a nice visit with bkdunha. It is great to meet members in person. I was able to pass out some of the 7173 business cards. Here are some pictures I took.

  4. On July 6, 1972, my wife (then girlfriend) had her 18th birthday and my car was built.

     

    Talk about your all time "meant to be's"!!! That's awesome!

    The real question is do you remember your car's birthday because its the same as your wife's, or your wife's birthday because its the same as your car's??? :P

     

    I actually did not know the exact date the car was built until last year when she bought me an elite marti report. I knew about when it was built because I ordered it new. There was a delay and I was told at the time that they were waiting for the engine.

  5. Anyone plannig to be at the MCA show in Indy next month? I am thinking about making a quick trip up to get some more concourse restoration information. A possible meet and greet could be scheduled. Just thought I would ask.

     

    Sounds great! Count me in.
