That's an amazing job for just 17 months (or less). Good work! Thanks
for bringing this one back among the living.

Re: My Ride New Pic

I thank you for the good comments, but the credit really goes to the
person I contracted with, though the implementation of all upgrades,
improvements and choices of which OEM parts to retain and which to
replace was with me. And the upgrades, mods, etc, I have made since
it was delivered are my doing.

It still has things which must be done, though it is very close to
complete, and it is roadworthy, but at 40 yrs plus, I have to wonder
which is doing better, the car or me at 57. LOL I was very fortunate
to begin with a very solid, very well preserved "car"cass. The dry
central California air kept it from dissolving into a rust bucket.

Now, if and when the engine gets repaired; it just lost the oil pump,
pump shaft, and first rod due to a piece of rod seal about 1/16th of
an inch square which was sucked up into and froze the oil pump; I'll
be cruising even as I finish it up. But that problem is being worked.

As for expense.... It could have been a lot worse.... On the other
hand, I could have purchased a new 2005 Mustang for less. But, I
didn't do it to make a profit. I did it because it's what I wanted.

Thanks... That was in July.... I have added a few improvements since
then. Hard to believe it's the same car as when I bought it.

Re: My Ride New Pic

I can't believe that's the same car. Astounding.

Maybe, in another 30 years, you could see what you could do with TFrog...?

Congratulations.

Thanks, but in 30 years, I will remember where the keys are but won't
remember what they are for... 'cause I'll be 87. LOL : 0 )

Thanks.... It's a labor of love and a work of art that I doubt will
ever really be finished.
