  1. Interesting read, but, is it just me or are pics 15-30 all 'broken'?
  2. So sad to hear. Back in the 80's, when I lived in Michigan, they played Pine Knob which is an outdoor venue. Show was sold out but my friends and I drove up there and scaled the fence at the back of the hill and got to see them.
  3. I did the same a few years ago and referenced this picture (attached). Also found some good pictures at this link: Windshield Washer Setup (mach1club.com) Hope this helps.
  4. That is awesome...congratulations!
  5. Welcome from Edmonds WA.....Sharp looking car!
  6. Wow, that Camaro looks outstanding. If that is what you had to start with, the Mach 1 should be easy in comparison Found it interesting that your car originally came with a white vinyl top...can't recall ever seeing one in that color before. Best of luck on the resto, and welcome to the forum!
  7. I replaced my factory steel wheels in the late 80's with Magnum 500s that I bought through the local Ford dealer so they are factory parts, not aftermarket. Probably been on the car for about 25k worth of miles? Long story short, I've never had any problems with leaking and there has been at least 3 sets of new tires installed on them over that time. I can say that I have had issues with getting them balanced. Had the last set mounted and balanced at Goodyear and they were WAY off. Took them to Les Schwab and the tire tech said they were so off he couldn't fathom how Goodyear could have thought they were correct. Just my two cents.
  8. Agreed. As a SE Michigan native (Ferndale, Woodward and Nine mile) I remember hearing the stories about this car and the Silver Bullet GTX.
  9. Very interesting! Learn something new every day. Thanks for the info!
  10. Vintageman: Hood molding is original to my knowledge...it was on the car when I bought it in '86. Seeing the differences between Trevynd's and mine, I wonder if the design changed for '73?
  11. I don't mean to hijack this thread, but this is first I've heard of the black paint being applied to rear underside of the hood. Would either of you know if this carried through to '73? thanks!
  12. My car is a '73 and the front hood trim on mine actually caps over the hood on the outboard ends. In regards to your question about the hood curvature, it seems to be a pretty common thing. Mine certainly has the same issue. I've heard various reasons put forward mostly centered on the overall length and pressure of the hinges acting on the hood when closed. Have no idea if that is valid though.
  13. Late to the conversation here, but, was looking for a picture of my car in WW that shows what I refer to as the 'ivory' tone. Wast most noticeable in this picture as the car is in the shade.
  14. Diablo Lake on the North Cascades highway in Washington state....well done
  15. Great thread idea! Here is my contribution. The hint is in my screen name.
