Got the car back from my engine builder today. He adjusted the timing a bit and fattened up the main jets and did some other tinkering on the carb it for me. Man its runs even better now!! Smooth, powerful, and great to drive. I think its ready for the drive to Carlisle. Having a new set of tires put on tomorrow. Gotta pack up some tools and spare parts for the road and do a final wax and she will be highway ready! We will get there Friday afternoon.

 

Just a heads up for anyone from out of state, if your planning on having a couple beers don't forget to bring your own or be prepared to find a 6 pack at a bar or get a case of beer at the distributor. PA doesn't sell any alcohol at convenience stores. I will be bringing my budlight with me :D

I was planning on going but I do not think I'll be able to now (two sick kids at home). Is there any chance that the fellas that are going can keep an eye out for a 1971 Mach 1 429 Ram Air Cleaner Snorkel combo there? If you find one you can call me at 315-868-7452 and maybe we can set up something with the seller or you can purchase for me and I'll PayPal you the money… They are just super hard to come by and I can't make it down there this year.

Got back from the show later last night. All went well. It was bigger than I remember over the last few years. I talked to a few organizers there and they were up over 3,200 cars. A good many 7173 mustangs. I didn't get a chance to meet up with any members but did spread the word about our site. I had a 7173mustangs.com flyer in the window. I have a few pics to post but took too many to post all !!! I got some pics of a couple boss 351's and my parents friend had a nice Mach1 there. Took a bunch of pics but totally forgot to get a pic of my own!! My nephew and mom and dads cars all ran great! I had some carb issues. Thought we had all the bugs worked out but I Had a small miss when cruising and seemed to be running a little rich. I got a whopping 7.3 MPG on the way out and back!!! Cost me around $300 bucks just in fuel to get there and back!! DAMN!!! We will get it sorted out, but here's some pics enjoy.

 

This was my dads buddy's car.

Found this guy's 71 429 for sale in the car corral. Asking price was $35,000 FIRM. He said it was all original. Saw all kinds of stuff to the contrary. But the funniest thing was the spoiler. I asked about it and he said "that's how it came from the factory" OK. Thanks LOL!

My car was right beside the blue convertible. For some reason they put me in that class instead of with the 7173 mach 1's. ?? You must of took the pic before we got there or after we left. I was there Saturday only from 9am till about 4 pm

Nice! Yep that's my car. That's the only pic of it at the show. My wife and I took all kinds of pics that day but totally forgot about my own! LOL! How did it sound?? I opened up the headers with the electric cutouts. It was fun watching the crowd part like the Red Sea! :D My dad was having trouble getting through the crowd with his quiet 6 cylinder.

I was just hearing from a friend last night whose buddy bought a 71 Mach 1 for 15K last weekend at Carlisle. That red one must be the one. He said it was 100%, but needed paint.

 

How were the range of prices on the other cars (especially verts)?

I went for the first time and we had a great time I bought some stuff and enjoyed the wonderful weather and a great gathering of Ford power. I left there completely invigorated wanting to return in 2015.

Going fast is fun but life is short so slow down and enjoy the ride :D Frank

We had our 73 convertible there, Did you see it? It was under yellow/white tent at the main entrance. That was the fifty years of mustangs on display. I have been going to Ford Carlisle since the first one, and last year the weather was one of the best years. but we always have a good time. Your car looks beautiful are you bring to Carlisle this year? here is a picture of our car under the tent maybe you will remember if you saw it.image(119).jpeg.dcb288c318bac978a9f0485087357fbf.jpegimage(120).jpeg.ce8de9c82497040a51218f37df4fc740.jpeg

I do remember your Red convertible as of course I paid particular attention to all 71-73 Mustangs. I really enjoyed the line-up of Mustang history under the tent. I don't know if I'm going to bring my car this year or not, I'd like to but it's a long drive and I have some issues that prohibit long trips behind the wheel. With that said if I can work out the logistics I'll make every effort. Either way I'll look you up now that I know your car.
