Hello from Miami Fl.

Recommended Posts

Greetings!! I have been lurking here for awhile and I decided my introducing myself has been long over due.

My first Mustang was a 1971 Mach 1 which I bought in 1975 after saving all my money while working part time

as a stock room jockey at J.C. Pennys and going to High school. I paid a 1000.00 for it and I drove it to the ground.

Things were different back then and these cars were everywhere so they were not appreciated like they are now. Since

then I have owned a 66 fastback, an 85 GT, a 94 Cobra and I currently own a torch red 2004 Mach 1 that I ordered

new from the factory. It has 22,000 miles on it, so I don't drive it as much as I want to. I picked up a 1971 Mach 1 in rough

shape and it resides at my brothers house who lives 3 hours from me since I don't have the room in my townhouse.

I try and work on it a bit at a time. Right now I'm aquiring bits and pieces and trying to tackle the smaller projects as I slowly

work on it whenever I get the time. I retire this year in October so I'll be able to really get into it since I'll have a lot of free time LOL!!

Hello from Mississippi. I like when people lurk first. That's when they get to stay in the shadows and see what a great site this really is. Looks as though you've had some nice Horses in your fleet!

Welcome to your new Mustang home.



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