    Gauge replacement question.

    Available as of June of 2017. It's pricy but it's the only one available. I ordered a set from one of their Canadian distributors. https://www.americanautowire.com/view-product/1971-73-ford-mustang-classic-update-kit-2/ Can you confirm the tach/speedo diameter as well as the fuel, volt, temp...

    Gauge replacement question.

    Good day to all. It's been many years since I last posted here but circumstances have necessitated my return. Recently my wife, Mach1 Mama, past away from Cancer leaving me her beloved '73 Q code Mach 1. Since she bought and re-built her baby (see Travails of the Trailer Queen) I've only driven...

    Other Muscle Cars

    At the risk of being banned and going waayyy off brand and it's more of an exotic car than muscle car take a look at the '68 - '78 Lamborghini Espada. The resemblance is uncanny.

    Actually, to tell you the truth wearing a "skirt" has it's advantages, particularly if you're going "Regimental". I beleive it's the American equivalent of going "Commando". ;)
