Hello from Southern Utah

Just wanted to say hello.  My 20 year old son just bought his first Mustang.  It is a '71 sport roof with a 351C 4V backed up with a T5(we also got the 4 speed).

 

  It isn't perfect by any means but it is a good car for him to learn how to really work on his own car.  His previous car was a VW Passat and a nightmare to work on.

Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. A word of caution. Never take anything off and toss it thinking you will go buy another. Some pieces for these cars are tough to find.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Thanks everybody for all the replies. I had a '68 coupe and 5 different fox bodies when I was younger, but I'll always love my '77 F150 with the 351M I bought when I was in 7th grade and wanted my son to have that love and pride of ownership that comes with restoring and maintaining a classic car.

 

Plus I told him it was a good investment long term.
