  1. And it's probably one of the worst movies ever made!!! They shot most of it here in Luxembourg in the area where I used to live. I'd always have to take a detour to drive to work because they had blocked a section of the freeway I had to take. In the morning you could see the cars parked on a trailer on a lot next to an exit. Did you know that the Mustang did not survive the filming, although it is not harmed in the movie? The production firm had contacted our local Mustang club to see if anyone wanted to supply their Mustangs for the filming. Turned out that it it was a smart move that none of us would! :)
  2. HI, With modern wheels you will need spacers. I have Bullit wheels in 18 inch with that 45 offset and I have 40mm spacers behind the wheels. Maybe you wanna check out this thread that I did on my experiences with the rims. There are a lot of measurements too. Here it is: http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-my-experiences-with-bigger-wheels
  3. Nice find, even more so, as they are in good condition. Regarding the ponies: On my reproduction mats they both run to the left. :s They came from Mustangs Unlimited.
  4. Hi Jim, Thanx for linking that again! Fits like a glove as mine is a 72! :-)
  5. Phew! Now I'm relieved! Especially regarding the pantless part. :D
  6. Just don't get a divorce from yourself!!!:D
  7. I love work! I could watch people work all day!:D As for what I did to the car: I drove it to work this morning and I'm waiting for noon so I can drive it back home again! :-)
  8. Hello to Australia and ::welcome:: A picture says more than a thousand words.......:whistling:
  9. Dude...I'm already there! Turned 40 last February! :( Count me in. For me it was January..... When my midlife crisis settles in, I will grow my hair, play guitar in a rock band, marry a blonde and buy a classic convertible......... AAAHHHH! NO! I already have all that! What am I supposed to do!?!? AAARGH!rofl I'm screwed! Guess I'll have to skip that crisis thing and just grow old. Or maybe it's time to finally grow up?::tease::
  10. Thanx for the video. Nice tutorial. I gotta check how mine lines up with those lips on the valance first thing when I get home tonight. :-) I have the feeling that it doesn't......
  11. Hi Sanborn and ::welcome:: I have exactly the same problem. Been looking for those parts for half an eternity but they're hard to find. I think they're made of Unobtanium. Good luck in finding those! Nice choice of color, by the way!!!
  12. Hi Bill, 72 convertible... Nice choice! ::thumb:: Is that "Medium brown metallic" (5H)? If yes, then your car looks just like mine when it was original. 72 vert, color 5H, white top, appearance protection group! :-) Nice to have you here!
  13. Hi Roy. Nice choice on wheels! Now for that size up front: I have 18s all around, but I would change to 17 for the front wheels if I were to buy new ones. Reason is, the front wheel wells are smaller than those at the rear. This makes the front wheels look bigger than the rear ones, although they are the same size. The smaller the sidewall of the tires, the bigger the effect.
  14. Yup, those look cool! I never liked digital gauges, but I only knew the Dakota ones. These, I would put into my car anytime! ::thumb::
  15. Hi Ken, My two cents: Magnum 500. Not that I mind the idea of 17 inch rims, but the GT wheel just doesn't look right on the car. Completely wrong style of wheel. Be careful, if you go for the 17 inch Magnum 500 though. The ones I have seen look somewhat wrong in terms of proportions. They have the center like the 15 inch and only the rim well has a step in it to extend it to 17 inch. Looks weird in my opinion.
  16. Hi and ::welcome:: to the community. Remember: 65-70 Mustangs are secretary cars (Except for the 69 Sportsroof)! :D Plus they're all over the place. Go try and find a good 71-73, though....
  17. Hi Jason and ::welcome:: There's a bunch of nice people here from all over the world plus some very valuable information. Enjoy the site!
  18. Put the repaired radiator back into the car without breaking anything and without hurting anyone. :D Drove the car to work and it seems like it's working.
  19. Hi Taylor, Unfortunately I don't know either, because I had mine replaced when the car was at the body shop for the paint. I'd like to know too, as I was planning to maybe go back to a white top instead of the black. Let's hope somebody will chime in with their experience.
  20. Congrats! It's always a great feeling to take on e big step forward, like getting it back on its wheels. Nice choice there (though I would prefer the black, but that's just me). One question though: Is the rotation of the wheels correct? Looks like the tread runs backwards, or is that how it's supposed to be?
