Read Mechanic FOUND

My search has uncovered a great Mustang mechanic located in Santa Clara, CA. (64s - 71 models only). Mustang Fever is a small owner operated shop that works only on older model Mustangs. After asking around, I have received numerous recommendations concerning this shop. Thus, my hunt is over.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on this issue. :thumbup:

If youre willing to drive to Oakland, try Mostly Mustangs. Right near 980, after it splits from 880. Also, I can give you the name of my mechanic in Albany. As a favor to me, he can help you out!

Is it English? Does it moo?

Beautiful car!! The only thing I think that could make it better is if you could get the double red strip tires that came with some GT's!

Thumbs up Tires: per Bobnoxious' suggestion

Thanks for the suggestion Bobnoxious.
I went to the site you posted in your message and could not see the tires you were referring to; I saw the Cougar but could not make out the tires w/ the double red stripes.
Who made/makes the tires; do you know? You mentioned they were used on some GTs; were these older model Mustang GTs?
If you have any info on these tires I would like to check it out. Thanks once again.
