  1. Last December I did some complaining about getting ripped off by a local Body shop. Or should I say you kind folks listened to my bitchin. :-) I"ll Post there name. Ron Zechman and his father SR. Shop out of Nampa Idaho. They run under several alias names. One of them is Idaho collision and customs. 3415 e. victory rd. I hired an attorney and took 3 of my biggest friends and repoed it back. Chicken shits didn't even come out to meet us. They pushed the car to the main road/street. Took me for 5K. The video is exactly the scam going across the U.S as we speak.
  2. I feel like I lived your story, and it hurt!! Take care sir, you will recover from this in time. God speed to your healing. Rod and Sally
  3. Build those lasting memories with your son. Its always exciting to me seeing a restoration ready to start. You got a pretty good list already, Im sure more will be discovered. Have fun, look forward to your writings. Rod
  4. David.......Did the helper springs actually lift the rear end any? Would it be better to just have the springs re-arched?
  5. And a 5th and a 6th just like everyone else in the world. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ HA,HA now that was funny.
  6. Not to sure there was a lot of planning over the last 50 years. Seems like we just threw all the ideas into a pot stirred it and what happened is what happened. Best wishes to everyone on this flag day! including you funny Brits
  7. Ditto on that Rktmn. That is what they did to my wifes 71 mach.
  8. Would you have a Eaton part # for the shackle set ( 1.1 inch lift)? Im also looking to do the same thing. Many Thanks in advance!
  9. Rocketfoot you missed your calling sir. With a voice like that you should have been a radio or T.V announcer. Really!!! Thanks for all you do to keep us running.
  10. Is the stripe only on a boss 351? or all mach 1s ?? My car is still in the paint shop but I bet they would like that measurement as well :-) THANKS
  11. Thanks Rocketfoot for putting this together!!
  12. See Ya in Boise Spike :-) God speed and safe travels.
  13. My OLD stomping grounds. Graduated from Cedar springs high. Keep plugging at that stang, you'l be burning out soon than later.
  14. Ha......like turtle says, get another insurance company. You will be happy you did. Or you can go through Farmers insurance and they will get it under written by Hagerty or similar You can insure it for what ever amount you want. Heck evil knievel insured his jump across the snake river here in Idaho.
  15. 1971 mach 1 4v fmx with shift kit dyno @ 490hp. Most important add on ? A window sticker that reads " In loving memory of Sally Snyder ( Mustang Sally)
  16. Ditto on that. We invest in our loved ones :-) which includes cars. Turtle did they let you keep your car and also pay you for it? I bought a brand new boat 40k had it for 3 weeks and it caught on fire but wasnt plugged in charging. One of the 3 batteries plates shorted out as a dead short. Burned most of it to the ground except the motor. Honda mechanic run the fuel line in the main harness bundle of wires. Wires melted down and ignited the fuel line. It was 8 feet from my house and it just bubbled the paint on the house. WEW The 200hp 4 stroke honda was 20k. alone. So..... I had put another 8k in add ons to the boat so State Farm gave me the boat, trailer and motor. They paid me full price on the boat. When you invest more than market value They feel obligated to give the claim items to you he explained. Well, I got 15k for the motor so I ended up 15k ahead of the game. But what a hassle with the forensic experts, setting up a new boat again and on and on.
  17. Yep, It was 2 years ago that the big debate started AGAIN on the value of our cars. I remember several name callings such as..... YOU NAY SAYERS, YOU NEGATIVE people and so on. I will still hold to my statement then that our car values will go up a "lot" in the future. I posted a pic as did others the price when the gavel dropped at Mechum just a few months ago. I think someone said it was a drunk bidder who didnt know what he was doing. Really? Dont forget someone was bidding against him, that makes 2 bidders drunk , rich, dumb bidders? :-) Thanks Rocket foot for the post.
  18. We have kinda been on this subject prior for me. The car was built december 1970 for 1971. Its a mach1 with deluxe interior. The color code says vermillion 5e. However all the O.E original interior is in it. ( it sure looks 50 years old) is dark red. This includes the headliner,seats , sail panels. One thing I did notice on the door panels is it says reject on the inside of the panel. Which seemed very Odd. I really dont think someone changed out the interior. Especially the headliner. So......... I pose the question. Is it possible they had dark red as a option for 71 machs? Color Photos upon request.
  19. Second That. Huge explosion of people here in Boise Id (lower part of the State).. .WA, CA and OR plates Also second that on the 70 boss :-) beautiful car indeed.
  20. Thank you for answers guys :-) I got them thar trim pieces off. Man they were stuck. Heres a pic drying with the replacement lens. I also sanded and buffed/polished the aluminum.
  21. Thank you guys! I did purchase a nice set of lens's so I really need to get the old ones out but not damage the alum bezels. So....what is VHT ? very hot tamale :-) seriously I don't know?
  22. So..... I was hoping to save some money and buy a good set of used tail light lens's and replace the older ones. Anybody removed the aluminum trim on the lens? It appears very stuck :-) Appreciate the help!
