Congratulations welcome to the world of classic Mustangs!

 

Congrats on the purchase. The lights should be an easy fix - replace the bulbs. They are just a pain to get to - it helps to have long skinny arms. :s

Cool, welcome to the club! I'm going to go the LED route for my dash lights. $40 something for the kit from Mustangs Unlimited.

Congratulations! There are some good posts on here about the dash lights. Might be easier to remove the dash pad to get to the light bulbs. Since your not far away it would be cool to meet you and check out your coupe! Keep us posted.

Everyone,

 

Thanks for the kind words. I don't take possession until Saturday or Sunday, so the wife hasn't seen it yet up close. She'll be standoffish about it at first...if she warms up in a week or two, then I'm golden...otherwise, not somuch.

 

I'll prepare you all now...I ask questions, and lots of them, the first of which will start in a new thread in about a minute.

 

I've attached a picture (probably the wrong way) of me driving it for the first time...it's the best non-craigslist picture I have.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

 

 

 

Congratulations on taking the plunge. So how does the wife like it?

Congratulations, Joe. Sounds like you have the same issue with your wife as the Carb you mentioned on your test drive. I'd recommend the same fix - just get her out on the road, and she'll warm up just fine.

Gotta love the Keystone Klassic wheels - very 70's.

 

 

 

I always liked the Keystone Klassic's back in the 70's; still do!
