  1. I only wash Christine a few 2-3 times a year and that's only when she's been sitting in the garage for over a month and I feel a wipe down with a California Duster isn't going to get her clean.

    But I do agree, that less water on our cars is a good thing.

  2. Looking to also place it on the passenger front windshield as I have a 73 vert. The 7173 inside sticker would go first and then adding my 2020 National Mustang Day above it.

    On the drivers side I have my (repo) 1973 inspection sticker and my South Jersey Mustang Club sticker above it.

  3. Ok, just for fun.  If you could have any car given to you, what would you wish for?

     

    Myself, I've always wanted a 1969 Shelby convertible.  Small block, grabber orange with black interior, black top and a  4 speed of course.

    My dream car s a 1969 Shelby Convertible, big block, red, black interior and top and of course a 4 speed.

    Actually I had my chance once at a '69 Shelby Fastback.  Back in 1973, my wife was expecting and we had my Mach and her Pinto.  Needed something with a little more trunk room, so I figured it was time to get rid of my Mach and get a family car.  This was also the time the first oil embargo hit us and gas was at $1.50 a gallon, another reason to keep her Pinto and sell the Mach.  So I took my Mach to the local Ford Dealer and was trying to trade it in.  They did not want it, they didn't want any V8 for that matter.  After arguing with the salesman for a time, he finally offered me $600.  My car had less than 10,000 milles on it and about 2 years old.  Insulted, I told him that I would let it rot behind my garage before I let it go for that.  To drive home his point, he took me to a chained in back parking lot and pointed to one section.  He explained that all the cars in this section were V8's, family rides to muscle cars, all makes were there.  He walked over to a red '69 Shelby fastback, big block with a 4 speed, smacked its hood and said, "Kid give me $1,500 and I let you have this one!"  So there was my chance, but I blew it.  Told him that I was trying to sell one.....not buy one!  I'm still kicking myself over that one!

     

    I think you need a time machine.
