1973 Mustang Grande 351C 2V, built on the very last production day (July 6, 1973) for Grande's.
Haha, that was too funny. Usually the pub is quiet around that time so I thought we could have some normal convo but the 6 nations was on. Fun but with too loud a crowd to chat. Was great meeting you though and I'm very pleased with the dash part!

Hey guys,

met Manu Mach1 from France at our well-known road trip to the infamous Mexico Sprint near Cologne. Details about that can be read there:

http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-73-mach1-made-in-mexico?page=6

The best on this trip was to meet such a nice guy as Manu and his brother in real - it was a pleasure and honor to get to know the two! Sad there where no better circumstances and we had not more time to spend together... It felt like that we would have many too many things to tell each other ;)

Thanks again for the French wine, my friend! I will enjoy it sometime with my father... ::thumb::

Several.
I met Thin Lizzy today (aka Mark) for a quick lunch in London. What a great guy! We chatted about all kinds of stuff but mostly about big old American cars and the frequency that they are seen/not seen in everyday circumstances.

About that time some Arab Shiek rolled by...

We both laughed.

Mark has the obligory pic of us on his phone and will have to post. I very much look forward to meeting up with him again.

Last week Mike (will e) was over again and this time I offered to go look at my car. It's tooooo cold to take it for a spin but that might happen next time he's over again.

Anyhow, was great meeting again and this time we did not forget the mugshot!

The whole idea behind the Hello Name Badge icon is to promote two things.

1. to encourage members who haven't met anyone on here to make themselves available so since many others have done it.

2. to show that many of us actually know each other now in real life which enhances our site and makes our site VERY different from all the other sites.  

Since we actually know each other it makes it hard for someone to get on here and start flaming.  This site has taken my interest in the 71-73 mustang and turned it into several good friendships.

So if you don't have a Hello badge and you have met other members let me or another staff member know and tell how many other members you have met so you'll receive the correct badge. Also if you switch from one category to the next let me know that as well and it'll be swapped out.

Here are the categories:

Hello1+.png
Met 1 - 4 other forum members in person.

Hello5+.png
Met 5 - 9 other forum members in person.

Hello10+.png
Met 10 - 14 other forum members in person.

Hello15+.png
Met 15 - 19 other forum members in person.

Hello20+.png
Met 20 - 29 other forum members in person.

Hello30+.png
Met 30 - 39 other forum members in person.

I'm heading down to Carlisle next Thursday and will be there Friday and Sat and Sun. If any of you are planning to attend post where you can be found and we can meet. I'm going sans my Mustang unfortunately because my back has been bothering me and my physical Therapist didn't think it would be a good idea to spend so much time in the seat of a classic Mustang and I have to agree. Hope to see you at the show.

Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs and I met a few weeks ago. Live about 10 minutes apart here in NC.
Dang, I completely forgot to look up our NC members when I was in the US last September. I was in Asheville!!! 

Problem was, I hadn't planned to go there, it was a spontaneous "extension" as we had two days left.

Wish you had got in touch. I live 20 min. from Asheville which is becoming the beer center of the U.S. because of the quality of water we have in the mountains. Also lots of wineries. Did you go to the Biltmore House? Largest private home in the U.S. and built turn of century. If ever back be sure to get in touch.

I'm just about an hour from Asheville, on the other side from Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs.  I'm disappointed I didn't get a chance to meet you in person. Consider yourself scolded.  ;-)  

If you ever get back this way, give a shout and we'll see who crawls out of the bushes.

We actually spent the night on Biltmore estate as it was the only place that had rooms left in a 50 mile radius due to the evacuation from the hurricane. 

Let's say it was not on the cheap side. :/

73 Ford Mustang Sprint from Mexico.
This summer I was  in Holland for holidays and could meet Fabrice who's living in Holland, and while driving back to home, we stop to north east of France, Fort de Douamont near Verdun and could meet Luxstang who drove from Luxembourg. Was short moment but rich :)

I was not far to meet EddyW while driving through Belgium.

Good for you guys! I have made contact with several people/owners in my neighborhood and they all don't seem that interested. The other day driving home from work, in the corner of my eye I spotted a parked 7123 Mustang Convertible, turned around and upon closer inspection it turned out to be a 73, left a sticky note on the windshield with my name and phone number, even mentioned 7173Mustangs.com and never heard from the guy! Believe it or not a couple days later I saw the very same Vert cruising down the highway. There's a guy living around the corner from me, maybe 1/2 a mile with a 73 Hardtop, it's purple LOL, talked to the owner and he says he'll restore it one day. It's been sitting outside (uncovered) ever since I moved into this part of town. Every time I see the car I wanna help it! So disappointing!

That’s really cool that we try to meet some of us.

At the Woodward Dream Cruise this year I saw TNFastback Cruisin up the boulevard and I ran, wait hobbled up to say hay!

So, ya Tn, I’m the one you saw and said I knew you from the 71-73 site. I wish I could have taken a pic of your nice ride, but I didn’t have my phone with me then.

Here’s a couple pics from there
