Greetings from South Germany


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

i am so happy to find a forum like that.


I am Daniel, a physiotherapist from south germany. I kinda repair some old peoples bodies and i enjoy it, but the best thing of having a mustang is : " They don't talk..."

I enjoy getting into the technique of that car and lerne every day a little more.


I'am so sorry for my bad englisch but i try my best.


My Mustang is a 1972 Grande Coupe with an 351 C, and i enjoy the sound everytime i get it started.

Interior is blue with vinyl, it has an white viniy rooftop and a bad bright color paint that i try to renew into the original color (bright blue metallic)


I will show you the results after painting it.


thanks for your support already !


greetings Daniel

Hello from Mississippi. Very nice looking Grande. Your English is fine, as I'm sure it's better than my German. I understand your enjoying the Mustang sound. Air conditioning was a wasted option on my Mach 1. Unless it was really hot or I was on a date I never used it. I wanted the windows down so I could hear the exhaust. Welcome and be sure to let us know more about your Mustang.



No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

That's great looking car I wouldn't change a thing if it has the original paint that's incredible. Remember it can only be original once. Today true original paint cars are bringing BIG bucks. Love your car. Welcome from Massachusetts.

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

Hello and welcome, I'm surprised Timachone from Germany didn't show up, but he will :)

Difference between human beings and our car is that Mustangs can be always repaired, isn't it?

Nice Grandé you get.

Mustang, beer and rock'nroll

Thank you all for the replies. It was so nice to rad all of them from all over the world.


My car needed to be rust free for the german car registration, so on many points there is a lot of ugly anti rust paint after repairing those pieces.

I decided to go for the original paint code. I hope it looks cool... its bright blue.

The vinylroof needs to be fixed the next years, i am scared of it, but at first i want to drive my car a lot. The last season was more an fix it season.


I am so exited to see my car in its original color. 3-4 weeks it will take for the painting.

Greetings from Weirton, West Virginia. Just joined this site myself and I am impressed beyond belief. The folks here are great. Quick and knowledgeable responses too if you have any questions. Can't wait to see how your paint turns out!

Hi guys, sitting in south africa with delay and then there was a very important question in my mind. Would this tire wheel combination fit ?


Cragar SS 15x7 front with 225

Cragar SS 15x8 rear with 255


Without backspacing and possible issues ? I am sometimes not into the inch measurement as a european :-) besides uk.


Thx a lot and greetings from the south again ;-)

Hey guys, the little pony is still with the painter and i have to screw all the parts together like headlights, grill, rear lights... hope i remember the screws :-).

Do you know if the tire will fit in the rear with 15 60 255 without any issues?


I am so exited to see the car in its original color bright blue.


Enjoy the weekend guys !
