    What did you do to your car today?

    I hear ya... I've grown to accept the bit of squat... though with just over 20,000 miles the springs haven't seen a lot of road miles for sure.

    What did you do to your car today?

    I gained a bit when replacing the totally dead 50 yr old Ford shocks but riding on 235/60-15 still only sit at 26.5" with the convertible... the new tires were moot as they're the same up front...

    Misc. hose wrapped around shock

    Thanks guys... Yes it broke off at valve itself... The opposite end is through the shock crossmember buried in that hole that is shown... 50 yr old originals have a lot of reference material that can be documented. Verified that everything around the new addition driver's dual pipe clears all...

    Post your funny stories, jokes, cartoons, etc.

    My funny story is car related...being a car guy from birth, I was always riding my bike to dealerships and checking out cars...I hopped into a 73 Cougar and all of the sudden, the showroom floor erupted in shouts...I thought I was being responsible but little did I know I grabbed the rimblow...

    Misc. hose wrapped around shock

    It doesn't have any fluid in it and could be a vent tub of some sort ... once I get my head under the car I might have a better vantage point of where it was torn from.

    Misc. hose wrapped around shock

    Does anyone know what this hose goes to? Here's a pic from "original factory build" but since I've changed the shocks and the dual exhaust is now sharing the space. Now it looks ripped from the termination end and I'll investigate further over the weekend but any pointers before I find the...

    New to the group, Lifelong Mustang guy

    I was glad the supplier had a match close to the interior... In 72 there was only black or white... Graphics express now has multiple shades

    8 track player speed adjustment

    Ha... that was made at the manufacturing plant I went to work for I 1984 for Ford... radio line shutdown completely in 85 as the engine controls division took over a lot of the plant.

    Moose is having a brother

    Congrats... Nothing that a good power washing can't fix. Certainly a chameleon as nothing in the appearance arena matches the MARTI report... Someone took the time to change its identity. Must be witness protection ;)

    Cowl intake to heater box radius

    Thanks. It's always good to know what the options are going into the future. It's a shame we couldn't turn back the clock 50 yrs to say " hey keep it clean and may put some undercoating down there"

    Cowl intake to heater box radius

    Any one here happen to know the radius of the cowl intake lip to lip? The one thing that seems ALL mustangs were prone to even when garage kept was the rusting of the cowl in this location. It's no where near opening it up for that $$$ replacement but I have a few ideas for "macguyvering" it...

    Heater core hose?

    Pete, maybe I missed it but what engine is under the hood? As your tearing into this, I have an all original 72 that I can get clean pics when you need it for other purposes if the engine is not the 302.
