Possible bad ground?

On my 70 mustang fastback I noticed that when I turn my blinkers on
I've got the rear side marker light blinking with the rear tail light.
The wires don't look spliced in the rear. The wires still look
original. All the lights on the car work, including front blinkers,
headlights, do I have a bad ground somewhere? The hazard lights blink
very fast, not normal speed. All replies appreciated....Thanks

Yes, you have a bad ground. very common. clean all the sockets and bulbs
of corrosion.
