    interior smells

    I've had issues.. twice.. with mice making nests and... marking.... in the base of the rear seat back in my '73 convertible. I've had a long talk with my cats that like to sleep on the car about their not carrying their weight, but they didn't seem to be that interested! I cleaned it with a pet...

    Windshield header buzz....

    If you do have the package left and can tell me that size that seemed to work, that would be great. It would save me an extra trip back to Home Depot when I get the wrong size!  ;) Bill

    Windshield header buzz....

    Thanks for the tips! That also answered my question of how I get the darn things off! ;>) For years Iv'e had a water leak every time it rains (I used to drive it in the rain...), despite replacing the top weatherstrip. Now I'm suspecting that its coming under the chrome and past whatever is...

    Windshield header buzz....

    My 73 convertible has an annoying buzz that seems to be coming from the area around the stainless header above the windshield. It starts at about 50 mph or so and gets really annoying at about 70. I've looked for loose trim and tried feeling around for a vibration when it happens but everything...

    Mustangs and politics....

    No, I'm not opening that can of worms! However, I had a dilemma this morning as my wife's Mini was in getting snow tires so she ran off with my Fusion. What to take to the voting place? :chin: Hmmmm... Roads are clear, weather good, gas in tank.... ::thumb:: Might have been the best part of...

    Steering box

    I've owned my '73 convertible since 1985, and it's gone from daily driver to weekend cruiser. Over the years the steering box has gone from slightly vague to a little loose to "GET OUT OF MY WAY!". Well, after discussions with my mechanic and some searching I decided on a Lares Corp rebuilt box...

    Last drive of the year?

    Took mine out this last weekend for a little foliage cruise and some train chasing (one of my my other hobbies). Probably the last top-down cruise, but I do try to drive it on a regular basis until the salt hits the road, then it's away for the winter.... And no, that's not me standing by the car!
