    Is that a Mustang?
  1. Saw the post on the VMF and followed it Home! Ditto on the "Thanks!!"
  2. You'd be surprised. It's possible for ~$1100. I had everything but the compressor replaced for ~$900. Definitely makes the car more fun in all weather.
  3. Just got the Mustang back from the shop on Friday. The PO had changed the engine for an 87 5.0 roller, but cobbled in the AC system from it so the air blew on your ankles, not htrough the ducts. I had cobbled together the pieces from an original 72 AC system, rebuilt the case, replaced the heater core, and pressure tested the evaporator, but my mechanic talked me into going wiht a Classic Auto Air inside system instead. The kit cost ~$675, i had a good compressor, and had bought a Silla condensor, so that was all I needed. He installed the kit and charged it with R134. I picked the car up
  4. So,,,, you're saying she facilitated you getting a new electronic toy,,,,,, Right?
  5. Ditto on it looking good! Welcome aboard!
  6. Thanks for the kind words! I'm going to have it repainted in the same color. The paint on it looks great, but is very thin. I accidentally banged a spot on the passenger front fender and had a small dimple of paint ot come off the size of a pencil eraser. It annoys the heck out of me, and when I saw how thin the paint layer was, it worried me even more. I'm lookinginto a complete repaint, plus clearcoat to get it to have some protection. I just had a shop add Classic Air's air conditioning kit, LED bulbs for the dash, a new HEI distributor, Ford Racing valve covers and air cleaner,
  7. They really backed into the topic of 71-73's didn't they? Still the step-kids after all these years!
  8. Nope, it's a 5.0 from an 87 Mustang. Gives me the roller cam and HO firing order so I don't have to deal with the Flat Tappets and Zinc issues. Nice! I just got a 306 Ford Racing Crate for my 72 Coupe...it has the aluminum X heads and E303 roller cam! It should thump a little! I had seen that over on VMF. I've thought about it, but the current engine already has more horsepower than I have brains.... That's why I did the Scarebird Disc Brake upgrade.....

  10. Presently in St Pete Beach, but will be relocating the car to Melbourne, Fl the 16th. Originally bought it in OKC. Good to see a website for the 71-73 crowd.
