    Lower Cowl Repair Question

    I would love to own a Gremlin, 4-spd, 304ci... I had the pleasure of driving one as a company car in my early twenties, that thing could fly... I keep my eye's peeled in my area for one.

    They say it is the best '72 Mach1 on the planet

    Beautiful restomod. The only thing I would change is the steering wheel insignia, Cowboy's of course, lol

    Amazing Collection of 71 Mustangs

    Been following him for a while now. Great 71 Mustang car guy. The Pastel Blue coupe in the video was the car I saw at the Indy Mecum auction a few years back. It sold for only $30k at that time, a real bargain. Other 71’s out of that sellers collection were going for $100k+. Hope to get down to...

    2022…

    Thx Bill. It was on my radar to attend after the cancellation a couple years back. But, life happens sometimes not positive. I might try to come over for the day as a spectator but that will be a last minute decision. Ken

    Original vs Modified

    Interesting… Yes, my car had been well used and abused by the time I got it. I figured the original engine had been rebuilt at least twice before I went through it. I’m still amazed that the car was #’s matching after the use this car must have seen in its AZ days. When it was moved from Tucson...

    $20k-$30k for a paint job?

    Thanks, but not quite there yet. However, the paint would score a perfect mark, that I'm sure of, it better at that price. lol

    $20k-$30k for a paint job?

    I guess I’m the elephant in the room, lol. $50k+ a few years back. I won’t get into too many specifics here but his shop rate was $85/hr and I was billed 500-600 hours. This was a top notch award winning paint and restoration shop in my area and here in Canada, everything is just more expensive...

    71-73 Mustang Exhuast

    Wow… I’ve ordered two complete systems from them and the fit was well, almost perfect. Certainly, I did not have to add any metal to have it fit. I would have contacted them and I’m sure they would have made it right?

    Shipping sucks

    I easily paid out $5k in shipping costs to restore my J Code Mustang. Yes, being in Canada adds at least 30% to the shipping costs from the USA and yes, FedEx is a complete ripoff for cross border shopping. PreCovid, I got a US Mailing address and then went across once in a while to pick up a...

    AUSTIN VERTS ENGINE REBUILD FROM HELL

    That’s a tough pill to swallow, for sure. We hope to find that one good shop who will build the engine we hope for. Harder to find good knowledge rebuilders today, throw away society and easier to just put something different and new in…. When I needed my original 429cj engine rebuilt, I was...

    Painting new fuel tank?

    I reused my original tank, dents and all, when I restored my car. I was going to buy a new one, but the original was so clean inside that I decided to paint it… I used the Eastwood Fuel Tank Paint and it came out very nice IMO
