  1. Hi from Prince George BC and welcome. I’m a new member also. 71 convertible. Stock. 302 v8. Almost everything is original. 102k. Waiting for our 4ft. Snowfall to go away, which could be May ! She hasn’t been on the road for about 12 yrs but warm and comfy in our garage. I have a question for the general membership... where do you get the “codes” I see being used to describe your cars? From the vin? Hope someone can enlighten me. And broaden my knowledge! Lol.

  2. Hey everyone! Introducing myself and my Mach 1

    1971 Mach 1, produced in Aug of 1970. 87,000 original miles.

    First viewed as a teenager in 1980, and after a 20 year chase I was fortunate enough to add to my garage.


    This is and will never be trailer queen as I drive when I can.

    Running gear 351C 2V with 4 barrel upgrade, cam upgrade, FMX transmission cruising gears.

    Power applied to ground though Goodyear Eagle 245/45ZR17's mounted on Ion Alloy rims chosen as they have a similar look to the Magnum 500's, interior cooled by a Classic Auto Air System.



  3. Hello from Calgary, Alberta. While new to the forum, I am old to these cars. My first car was a brand new 71 Mustang hardtop, one of the few with ram air. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to put together a collection of my favorite Fords from my early days. They include bookend red/back 71 b 1 and scj convertible. Both will be long term keepers.


    Great site, and look forward to reading many future posts.


    Hi from PG BC. Lived in Calgary a couple times over the last 35 years. Sunny Alberta! I have the 71 convertible also. Tried to put photos on this site ( I’m a new member myself) but I’m also technologically challenged and can’t figure out how to size the photos on this new iPad. I’ll get some up eventually.

  4. Wow! After reading all the comments from members regarding all the rebuilds and modifications etc I feel positively dull and boring with my original old girl!, 71 convertible 302 . Not happy with the mileage, about 125k miles. Had to use it as a daily driver about 20 years ago and it didn’t help that my son used it more than I so he actually put on lots of miles. Hasn’t been driven for about 12 years but stored in a warm dry garage. Couple months ago got hoses,seals,rad and gas tank changed. Need to get the seam on the back seat repaired because I stupidly knelt on it while putting on the tonneau cover. What an idiot!, lol. When our snow is finally gone (probably May!) I’ll be cruising our city of Prince George B.C. Canada, and I swear this year she’s going in the local Fathers Day Show n Shine. She’s dark brown with a gold fleck and dark brown top with original light brown interior. I might get new carpet but the original is still good. Fat tires on the back, which I like.
