  9. kurt im not trying to sell my mustang never said i wanted to sell it and make money. who makes money in the stock market anymore not the working man! all said was i can;t wait for the value to go up like other classics. im going to bow out of saying anything any more on this site don;t want to hurt any ones feeling that was not my intensions. thanks for everyone who helped me out thru out the years with my mustang some great people on this site. no hard feelings. If you want to make money that way, I suggest the stock market. It's more predictable. That, and if you do make a windfall on your '72 convertible, remember this: You'll never get a chance to buy another cheap to flip again. You'll also never get a chance to own one again purely for fun, even if you can afford it. There'll always be a little voice in the back of your head freaking out about wear, accidents, road crud leading to rust... I have a neighbor with a '69 Shelby GT350 convertible. Was wrecked 10 years ago; he finally put it back together. Drove it a lot a few months ago. Soon as he put the stripes on it and polished it up, it disappeared into the garage. -Kurt

  11. austin i was talking about people that inherit or are given a 7173 mustang they just don't value it like the people that love this style. i seen on mecum auction a good looking 7173 mustang sell for 9,000 and 8,000 for a good looking ones too. on this site i have seen members thru out the years complain about parts being too high and they cant afford to stay in this car hobby because its getting expensive,my point is its a hobby that takes money and even if you plan on never selling your mustang i would think you would want your car to be worth something... i seen camaros and cudas and chevelles that are rusted and need a full restoration go for 14,000 to 18,000 you can find a nice 7173 mustang on ebay or trovit for as little as 8,000 nice one a 10 footer thats drives. so for me i would like to see a comparsion some day were the price of our mustangs are close in value to other classics me i love my mustang its not for sale i love it,my kids love it my wife loves it,i have 3 years of me in building it to look as nice as it does. this is my opinion you don't have to agree, i love all classic cars anyone thats collects pony cars or muscle cars in any shape i don't look down on at all its a great hobby and love.
  12. if you read the post it says some people that collect 7173 mustang don't plan on ever selling there cars, as for it getting no respect your kidding me right, all I here are people crying about they don't want the prices on these cars going up because it will cost to much for them to buy parts for there cars, to my point if you search for classic cars are are on the low end and other classic cars are holding there value and commanding more money.........some people will just never get it.... Austin I hear what your saying and I agree,all im trying to say is we should hold our cars up a little higher like Camaro guys and mopar guys .and value them more even if you never sell it. Hi Ron, I think that in time, we will see the value of our Mustangs rise. Public perceptions and public awareness always play a big part with values, so it's hard to predict where and when values will change. Economic climates play their part too. I notice that these days, people around the world are seeking to collect lesser known and less popular classic American cars in preference to the mainstream popular models, because they want to own a car that's more different and unique and stands out more than well known more popular models.That will help change the landscape of values in time as well i think, in a positive way. I was doing a little reserch the other day on Hagerty's website on values, and found their information interesting. How accurate their info is i personally don't know. http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch Here in Australia, the values tend to be more expensive, because of all the extra costs involved in bringing the cars out here. For example, let's say you are buying a '72 Mustang for $24,000 American right now. To bring that car to Australia and put it on the road and start driving it around, would cost you an extra $10,000 Australian in fees, gharges, taxes etc. I bought my '73 Vert back in 2011 here in Aus, and paid $30,000 Aus for it. Since i have owned it, i've sunk easily $15,000 extra into doing it up. If i tried to sell my car today, i know i could only ask around $35,000 Aus for it. I did not buy my car only to look at it as a rising investment. I bought it to enjoy myself, and bring happiness, pleasure and joy to my life.(which it does). What money can you put on that! That's worth a million dollers and more. Be patient, as values will rise as time goes on. Greg.:) im talking about the value of respect for our cars, I agree about the good looking part if you go on many sites and look at 7173 mustang for sale they are being sold under value that's my problem and just bringing attention to it Times a million::beer::
  13. kit....looking forward to the day 7173 mustangs start to shoot up in value its time to get the respect and value these car deserve,thats why you buy cars in the classic car market before they go for high prices,its called getting in early on the market....for prices on used parts geting pricey thats the collector business,were still so far behind on value on our years 7173.
  14. than people should collect pintos if there scared the value is going to go up......i swear people are so cheep if your cant afford a hobby don't get into one.
  15. i just want to say that i been on so many sites that sell classic cars and every class of cars seem to hold a good value pretty good to you get to 7173 mustangs,so many people hold no value to these cars except some that stand out and show great but for others ones i see them selling for chump change, no way can you buy one and fix it up and only sell it it for 5,000 or 10,000 dollars,before some start screaming i didn't buy my car to sell it ..... ok that,s fine so many people don't buy 7173 mustangs and plan on ever selling it,but in the classic car market you would whan't it to go up in value no matter what i see camaro's chevell's impalla's 65 to 70 mustang and every other make hold there value,im just saying people need to demand decent value for our 7173 mustang instead of being so hard up and giving it away,even on this site i here i dont want prices to go up because i can,t afford the hobby,i say collect pintos,just my 2 cents.just tired of 7173 mustang geting a bad rap.it deserves the same respect as other classics cars out there......

I am not getting all gooey on you guys because my anniversary present was the money to buy all of my new steering components!

I have the best wife ever!
