Welcome from Columbia, Missouri

Hey Guys!


Glad to have found you. Nice to see some others who value the big bodies as much as I do. As you can see from my avatar, I have been a big body guy since the 80's (purchased in 1980 and sold in 83) and now recently (6 weeks ago) I was able to complete my search for another '72 Fastback. This one has Mach badging so I am converting it to a full Mach. It has a 351C 2Vwith long tube headers, and decent exhaust. The big selling point for me was body was nearly rust free, normally hard to find here in Missouri. Since I knew this would be a "project", I also have a 2006 GT Coupe in Screaming Yellow with blackout hood, deluxe Interior, classic rear spoiler, and DD chrome bullits. This has been my "car show car" for the last 4 years and I am past VP of our local Mustang club, currently webmaster.


As one gentleman stated, I also am afflicted with CMD and have YMF (Yellow Mustang Fever) as well. I am posting some pics of both my babies for your viewing.




The '72 is going to be a long process as it was originally a brown fastback with brown interior. When it was painted yellow/black, they dyed the interior to Ginger. I have chosen to convert it to black and am in process of strip down and do a quick dye job, and will change out with true black interior as I go along (and funds become available). Here is a shot of the lady at our Club annual car show last month. I consider this a "as found" picture:




Here are some pics of both "ladies". Hope you all like, and pardon for posting a "new" pony on the site.

Welcome to the group, John. Thanks for posting pics with your intro, as well as some bio info.


I doubt anyone here will take offense at '06 sitting next to your new Mach project - the '72 makes up for it, IMHO. :)


Keep us posted about your progress.

WELCOME aboard, John!


...and I, too, love your choice of "color" for your "projects." They are both very nice, indeed.


I think you will love it here and look forward to interacting with you on the different forums.





Do the RIGHT thing.
