It’s really crazy to look back at all the videos and see how far I’ve come. It’s easy to forget. But like I’ve mentioned any progress is progress! No matter how small

All those videos as well as the pics you've no doubt taken will, IMO, add $$$$$ to the value of your car.

I wish I had been more diligent and taken many more pictures while going through the process of bring my car to where it is today. "Pictures are worth a thousand words" as the old saying goes.

Haha yes! This spring. If I would of had an engine this fall it would be done by now. 
 

but yes springtime is my goal, that will be just shy of 2 years restoring it. 
 

maybe I’ll take my other sportsroof and turn it into an ice racer so I can drive a 71mustang in the winter haha!

IF you've never driven a Mach 1 (or fastback) on icy roads, my advice would be, "don't". Back in 1980, I owned 2 Mustangs. One was the red 72 Q code Mach 1 4 speed and the pewter one was a 72 H code auto that I originally bought for 500 bucks as a parts car, but turned it into my "winter beater". Note the snow tires!! I also had about 150 lbs of sand bags in the back and it still slid around like a greased pig.

The car or the skills?

Skills are forever. The cars, not so much.

I had a seriously clapped out 71 302 fastback as a second car at 19 and worked delivering pizza evenings. I was the only one that would work during a snowstorm, as I had SnowKing snowtires like Stanglover's pewter car. People would look out at what I was driving and hand me crazy tip money. Funny part is I only got stuck one time, there was ice under the snow and I was parked facing up a hill.
