    Local show all makes and models great car beside me.

    There was a show today local and I drove the 1973 vert there. It sprinkled a little rain going but not much so just a wipe down when there. The car beside me was also a 1973 AMC Gremlin X 401 and was done pretty close to stock. I do not know how the engine should be but was not over done. He...

    With Covid my 1973 vert just sat in the shop. I had couple guys come to look at parts last week so I got them to help me push it over to the lift. When we moved it big puddle of automatic transmission fluid on the floor. The last time I drove it looked like I had a coolant leak at one of the...

    Scored a Power Window set for sportsroof out of a 1972 Mach 1

    When I stated sanding on the 1972 Q code vert I bought as a failed restoration I found the drivers door NOT SO GOOD. He had done some patching on the rusty bottom and there was way too much body filler for my taste. So taking that door off is what finished my neck off. I have been looking...

    Another minor win for the 71 - 73 group today. A first and second at the Mustang Owner's Museum

    The MOM held a show just for Mach 1 and Boss Mustangs. Of course most there were new Boss mustangs so did not think there was much hope. It was a popular vote show so no judging. There was lots of visitors today and had lots of interest in my car. There was also a pretty nice 1972 Mach 1 Gold...

    I have the craziest luck for meeting people. Since Covid is dying down I wanted to get social again. So I joined a dating site. One reason I joined it was looking through their free stuff and you could look at pics and some info about members. One gal jumped out it seemed, so I joined. Well I...

    Getting the 73 Mach 1 out of the trailer after couple months.

    I had never taken the 73 Mach 1 out of the enclosed car trailer since going to the P.I.T.S. show in Tenn. My neck and shoulder do not like changing four tires. I have original Goodyear RWL tires for the shows but have to drive about 200 yards on driveway so need to change to rollers. So me...

    How many of you ended up at your birth place

My dad was drafted and sent home said he had a heart mummer but never had any issues from that. Anyway they bought a one bedroom home and little over 1 1/2...

    I picked up a model 8000 Ammco brake shoe arch grinder on Tuesday.

    I have been looking for one of these for years but they are generally in the $600 to $800 range. I think the number one reason people think their drum brakes are no good is because they never have the shoes ground to the arch of the drum. Most have never heard of it when they jumped on the get...

    1971 Grande on Facebook Marketplace, 4 miles from me, Special Paint and Trim six digit DSO code.

    So I went to look at a 1971 Grande that was on Facebook Marketplace just 4 miles from me. It was a 302 car but the big reason I went to view it was to see the color. It was a 6 digit DSO code 470020. So it was a Cincinnati DSO and would have been the 20th. Special Paint or Trim car they ordered...
