I have a restoration that I've hauled around the country for the last ten years.

Short story- I'm goiing to work, but want to toss my hat in:

'67, convertible, GT gas cap, 390 Thunderbird decal on the air cleaner
but rebuilt durring the brief year that I drove it and the machine
shop said it was a 352. I had it rebuilt that way. VIN as I recall
was some shade of green. Painted candy apple red before I got it.
Took a front end hit at some point.

I plan to take it back to pretty much original driver. I live in
Bayonne, New Jersey and can afford it now. Car is in Florida in the
garage where it was left before going back to school. I've been
through a career as an aircraft mechanic since then it came off the
road, so I'm pretty competent.

Thinking about suppliers, and how to get it north. '78 Chevy C-20 in
the garage with the Mustang. It was working when parked seven years
ago. Tires still have air as of Christmas.

Any mecahnics in Tampa interested in driving a C-20 around for the
daily grind, for a month, and just pay for gas? Or should I stick the
pickup in the back of a U-haul and the Mustang on a trailer and then
worry about getting the pickup running up here.

I've been in your situation also. The tires are probably dried out and
ready for a blowout. The fuel filters may need to be changed a couple
of times before it's trustworthy. Car haulers are good for hauling an
old beater, not sure if I'd trust them with your Mustang. In this case,
U-haul and a trailer. YMMW.

If they are something you want to keep, I sure would NOT leave them
sitting any longer in Florida than necessary unless the garage is
climate controlled, due to the heat and humidity and it's impact on
metal (old Mustangs were prone to rust) as well as carpeting and
upholstery (mildew), and rubber parts. Load 'em up and get 'em out of
there.
