Doug The Dog

Hi everyone! I'm glad to be part of this forum! I have been a fan of the 71-73 body style since they were new (Yes, I was alive back then!). I have owned several of them and right now I am doing a nut and bolt restoration/restomod on a 73 convertible. don't laugh, but I've been working on it since 1991. Unfortunately, it has taken a back seat to many other of lifes obstacles, ie, family, work, bla bla bla.... About a month ago I mentioned to my wife that I would really like to finish it so we could enjoy it before we're too old. She said "Why don't you?" Nuff said. I'm spending all my spare time in the garage now (That and at the Mustang Depot). I used to know every nut and bolt, every option, every color etc for the 71-73, but over time I've forgotten alot. Please forgive me if I ask questions about something I should already know. Hopefully this will be like riding a bicycle, (you never forget). P.S. My name is Travis. Doug the Dog is my Golden Retriever, LOL!!!

Nice golden receiver, or is it the quarter back?

My old computer is down or I would post a pic of my shop buddy, a 35 pound pug
