I've Had my 71 Mustang for years and only now found this forum. My Mustang was my first car and has sat since its auto trans took a dump. I have since taken to building the most absurd thing to hit the streets I can handle. I have a full plan on making it into a sort of full on drift/autocross monster. Not trying to offend the "Mustang purists" just trying to have a good time! If anyone has incite on which bits work well on these cars and which don't, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!

1998.5 Dodge Cummins, Daily.

::welcome:: from Luxembourg, Europe.

Don't worry we all kinds of people, purists, restomodders and even customizes that reshape whole bodies to their taste.

And the coolest thing about this place is that no one group looks down on the other.

Hello & Welcome from across the pond in the U.K.

I am sure you won't offend purists like myself. Our cars give us fun and satisfaction no matter what we see as fun and satisfaction someone else will always get satisfaction for a differant reason. We are all individual characters.

I'm offended! How dare you! I mean how dare you start a thread like this without pictures.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

DisgruntledFun, you'll find everything here from bone stock 250 6 cylinder cars to ground pounding big blocks, Gold level Concours, everyday drivers, drag racers, "Drop Tops", coupes, and Fastback/Sports roofs. Forum members here have other make vehicles and openly talk about them without the fear of being "Stoned" by torch carrying townspeople! Probably the only thing that would cause you grief is if you were to talk about dropping a Chevy engine in your Mustang!!

Glad you stopped by, liked what you saw, and decided to stay. As others have said, when you get a chance please post some pictures of you Stang. Welcome aboard!!

Steve

 

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

Y'all asked for photos so here's the "Ugly Pony". Sorry for the wait, I couldn't figure out how to get photos from my iPhone onto my laptop.

 

Hope y'all enjoy. I'll be soon to post them up on the build forum too. See you there!
