It took three fire extinguishers one was from inside the car. It looks like a gas Leak from the back bowl on the holly carb. The hood was shut and I heard the backfire then smoke. The scariest part was it was in the garage. The insurance is with haggerty and we are working to see how close to...
Sunday I had and engine fire that took out the passenger side fender, door and hood. This was due to a backfire and fuel leak.
I will be looking for a Great Paint shop in the next two to three months. Any help with recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and be safe!

Keep up the great work!

Midlife is AWESOME and any wiring for our cars that...

Anybody else have this issue? My only other idea is to build...
I am also looking to do sub frame work and wanted to the same thing. On the other hand I really like what Obsidian71 did on his car but I don't think I have the skill he does with a welder.
Just found this on Dallas Mustangs site "Subframe...
WOW! I think you need a camera crew and you could have a great Overhaulin episode! I also believe Chip Foose would be impressed. I have seen this type of a job done on a 72 Camaro with 98 interior and drive train but a 71-73 Stang is WAY COOLER!
