Hey everyone, just wanted to say hi. I am a 35 year old IT guy, father of two boys, and husband to a BEYOND awesome wife who is excited to seem me start this mustang project. I have always wanted a muscle car, came across a 73 Mach 1 project on a deal I couldn't pass up and they guy who had it suggested this site. It is in a lot of pieces currently so I have a lot of work a head of me, but it looks like a solid start. I will post a project thread soon.

I apologize in advance for the stupid questions!

you must heard at one time or another 'only stupid question is the one not asked'. I found out the hard way that experience of trial ane error is the mother of invention as myself, you will be finding out 1st hand that no matter how much research via asking questions through this site and other clubs to specialists w/building your stang you will still need someone thoroughly knowledgeable and beyond trustworthy in your corner now and then in person to give assistance in helping in the overall project whether to fully restore to stock or a resto-mod on it. Those who publish their work in magazines i find the most truthful since they have the most to lose in their integrity if the embellish anything in describing how they reworked this or that and leave out any truth of what they experienced as in their method of installation of any compment and what set backs they incurred. I for one put my mustang through a full time process through many a garages and when you get a chance look on my photo album and remarks that only cover some of the problems I had and if it can go wrong during the resto process in the past11 years of my quest to rebuild mine the way I wanted it~it will go wrong. I still have a lot to post to complete my biography of my resto project on my 72 q modded to ~ r code. Over 300 photos and COTM for marches calenda next year. Ciao - mustang dynasty - Mikke

Welcome from western (soon to be eastern) Tennessee. ::welcome:: You do have quite a project there, but that is what makes it so much more rewarding when it's done. As others have said, there is a wealth of info here, and lots of very knowledgeable mustang and car guys who are a great resource. Don't forget the search function, either. Some of the threads have great pictures documenting how they fixed things. :)
