    Nashville

    Sorry I wasn't there to meet everyone. I just couldn't get it in my schedule Friday night. Saturday I was already committed to 4 Wheeling at Pickett State Park so I knew I wouldn't be at the show.

    Nashville

    Great to hear someone heading into Music City. I live in the Murfreesboro area btw. If I don't have to work, I'll be happy to meet up with you. I'm not sure if I will be putting my car in the show that weekend. I hit a bird Friday night and it broke one of the bolts to the trim molding next...

    Original License Plates

    I just switched my antique tag to an original 1973 plate and the DMV made me surrender my Antique tag in order to do it. For Tennessee using the old plate has the same rules and restrictions that our Antique tags do. But it sure looks cooler!

    which are the rarest options

    My vert has the spare tire lock and it was holding down the spare that still had the polyglas spare tire. I have another rim im going to use for a useable spare for road trips. I still don't know why I'm keeping the original polyglas spare intact as it probably doesn't add anything other than...

    Tire Aesthetics

    i tried the Bleche-White and it did make the white areas look clean but didn't remove the brownish haze at the top of the letters. Maybe I didn't let it sit long enough. I'm kinda wondering if I might have gotten a couple of factory second tires by mistake but its too late to run back to the...

    Convertible Cylinder Parts missing

    None of it is reproduced and your going to have a heck of a time trying to find someone selling just parts of the top frame. I've only found sellers wanting to sell the complete top frame. There is one complete top frame currently on ebay for $400 plus $150 shipping which i find to be a little...

    Tire Aesthetics

    I'm just curious to here what everyone is using to clean your tires up. I personally don't care for the wet look on the tires of my Mustang as I feel it takes away the vintage feel. I don't think anyone was using anything like that in the 70's either. I've been using SOS pads to scrub my...

    Engine Oil Questions

    I read both articles from mustang7173 and mdan75. Both articles have some interesting and great info. Here is my reason for using the oil I use. When I rebuilt my engine, one of my concerns about shifting away from a flat tappet style motor was cost vs how long would I go before the engine...

    All you vert owners are a special breed

    I've been driving mine lately to the chiropractor which in turn causes his entire office to run behind because everyone leaves his office to come out and look at the car. Its a completely different kind of attention the convertibles get from a hard top. Maybe our heads are glowing with a Halo...

    Need Help With Value on 72 Convertible...UPDATE with pics and story

    I also agree on 3k. if the little bit we can see is that rough I find it hard to believe it only has 58,000 miles. If the mileage is true those owners didn't really treat the car well at all. The steering wheel looks like the 2 spoke with power steering from what i can see. I wish mine was...

    TMI has 71-73 deluxe door panels

    I'm not sure which one's I got through CJ's but the first set had an incorrect shape at the top and I had to send them back. 2nd set was much better but most of the clip holes did not line up so I put screws into the bottom of the carpeted area. The window felt is doable but is not a 15 minute...

    Austin Vert's New Wheels.

    That looks full of muscle! Your paint color and stripes really set your car off too. Nice! I don't care much for the stiffer ride and if I were to have done that I probably would have gone the route of a 1" lift in the 4 leaf springs for clearance issues but then you would lose that nice...

    My Life married to a Nurse: A Man's Perspective

    Being a former EMT/Fire Fighter I can attest that this is all true! After we would transport a patient, we sometimes would hang out with the nurses on break. Loads of story telling was always happening. I think it's what helped us all break away from it all. I got a good laugh and revived...
