  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.
  14. It's really to tough to answer a question like this. Thin Lizzy is my all time favorite band. This morning, I'll say my favorite solo is from Thin Lizzy's Dancing in the Moonlight.
  15. That's a remarkably clean coupe. What a nice starting point!
  16. And I don't think it'll be too complicated. Ironically on a racing game I play, they recently added a '71 Mach 1 Mustang so I took it and painted it like how I want my '73 to be. So I took off the '71-'72 stripes and put the '73 stripes on it. Did the paint the way I wanted. And now I love it, it's one of my most driven cars on the game now too haha. But the paint won't be too complicated. Here's what I'm aiming for now. Either flat black or Semi-gloss black for the body. And metallic red stripes. So it's a little complicated but I know I'll like it no matter what because it's my car hah Good choice! I plan to do similarly, myself.
  17. Any links, pics, prices, or other info? Hard to beat a Fox for sheer bang for the buck.
  18. That car looks really great! I've always thought the Coupe/Grande was the best looking body style for 71-73 Mustangs. I'd be really happy to have your car.
  19. I purchased my 1972 Mach 1 in a shady cash transaction, in the bullpen behind a towing business, well past midnight, from some guy who was "passing through town." ;)
  20. Wow! That paint shrieks "1986!" Body looks good, though, and the price seems right for a running car in that area.
  21. Kurt, I think we could make them out of Kydex or ABS easily enough. Wouldn't be a mass production affair, but it might give much of the resilience you suggest. I'm personally set on carbon fiber, for the ultra light weight, and I don't care about making a profitable enterprise out of it. We're all friends here, as far as I know, and if a friend breaks a carbon fiber bumper, then we'll just have to make him another one. If a friend wants a Kydex bumper, we'll work on that, too.
