  1. Agreed on all points, Ray. If I were into convertibles, I'd be all over this car.
  2. This isn't my car. I "met" this man of Facebook, while shopping for a nice OEM running pony gas cap. He hooked me up with a very nice one, indeed. After exchanging a few messages regarding the gas cap, he mentioned he was selling this 1972 Convertible. Though I'm not a convertible guy, I thought I'd have a look. Seems like a really decent project car, and he seems like a really nice fella, so I thought I'd post it up here for the consideration of members who may be looking for one. http://richmond.craigslist.org/cto/4782644338.html
  3. Guys, I seem to recall from the thread I originally saw, that it was stated that the part was factory installed. Thanks for chiming in! I'm sure a fellow member will happen along to inform us, anytime now...
  4. Hey, fellas, I know I saw a thread some while back, wherein this little bracket (on the shock tower brace) was identified. I can't remember what it is, and I can't seem to find the thread. Can someone identify this for me, and/or point me to the thread?
  5. Austin Vert, that's perfect! You made it extra sinister, while keeping its look period-plausible, KISS, and tasteful.
  6. I really do get it. I'm just saying I wouldn't do it. I'm happy to have a pretty good 1972 Mach 1 to work on, but I really think the 71-73 Coupe body is more aesthetically pleasing than the Sportsroof body. I think we 7173 Mustangers are a minority of weirdos here, as most dismiss ours as the "big Mustangs" or the "ugly Mustangs." That being the case, a little persistence will always turn up a suitable Sportsroof or Mach 1 for less money than it would take to convert a Coupe into one.
  7. Funny thing. I personally wouldn't consider parting out a nice coupe for the sake of another car, and I wouldn't convert one into a Sportsroof, either. The coupes are great looking cars in their own right, with plenty of performance heritage (heck, Shelby Terlingua car is a coupe), and the 71-73 Coupe/Grande is especially beautiful.
  8. Hey, there's a whole bunch I haven't yet seen! Thanks!
  9. Great post. Very helpful and informative. I agree, mostly. I think the place where some people really blow it is in the use of unorthodox stripes and other designs. When this is done well, it's very impressive. When it's done poorly, it looks like homemade ass. Unfortunately, most of the people who do it poorly are convinced they've created a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, and people around them are too polite to tell them otherwise. For stripes, etc., when in doubt, go stock. Ford paid talented people good salaries to design attractive paint schemes for these cars.
  10. Yeah, that's a cool shirt. Nice buy.

  12. There is no Thin Lizzy without the Bard, Phil Lynott.
  13. I'm so envious of you, or anyone else who was privileged to see Thin Lizzy in live performance. On Oct. 4, 1980, I was nine years old. I only heard Lizzy on the radio.
