Hey guys,

 

My car finally had its first ride of the year. Last ride was october last year and it ran crap. I did put in that tiny ground wire but didn't have a chance to test it. Now I did and the engine runs a LOT smoother!

 

Anyway,

 

I stopped halfway to shoot this little walk-around video for y'all to drool over ;-)

 

Please enjoy my '73 Grande:

Cheers,

 

Vincent.

 

PS: It was windy ;-)

Looks, sounds awesome!

Wish I could drive mine too, but my leaky Holley (again) said otherwise :(

Hi Vinnie,

 

Thanks ever so much for presenting your '73 Grande walk around and sharing with us.

 

Your car looks very sharp with the white/ black combination. I think the black roof sets the car off nicely, compliments it, and gives it a great sporty look as well. ::thumb::

Beautiful countryside too where you are. I am sure you would get plenty of looks and good feedback whenever you are out and about driving around.

 

Your Man Cave walk around  had a certain appeal as well, :P  given the fact that you don't have a lot of room to spare. I was a little worried that if you stayed any longer in there filming, you might have ended up accidentally gassing yourself. :D

 

Thanks for sharing again Vinnie, and showing off your great '73 Grande. :thankyouyellow:

 

Greg. :)

Thanks for all your nice replies guys!

 

Fabrice: I haven't been able to visit a lot of meetings. The TMCN meetings sound a bit too boring for me because it's aaaaaaaall Mustangs. I very much prefer meetings with a very wide range of classic cars. I mean, I know what a Mustang looks like eh? :-)

 

I took my Mustang to IJmuiden twice now and I've visited (by foot) the King cruise and others.

Free entrance and a lot of classic cars  (driving from Amsterdam to Genk: 2:18 uur/189,9 km)
