Okay, a headache! Here's a link to my cardomain page: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/793178

It'll give you a quick look at my car some some other random nonsense. Here's the deal as the car stands now:

Motor, in good shape, but going to end up being replaced.

Transmission, also in good shape, but it's not a 5-speed so it's gone!

Body, considering it's celebrating 41 years come May (IIRC), It's in good shape, but needs a lot of work. Rear QTRs need to be cut off and replaced which is number one in a list of things I am having done by body shops.

Windows, front is cracked and leaks, rear leaks, front and QTR windows need new regulators and while I'm at it, I'm just gonna make them power windows.

Interior, a bit behind the times. The original interior was in decent shape, but I was not fond of the "break your neck" stock seats. All interior is getting replaced.

With new motor comes new suspension and new brakes all around.

Pretty much the only thing that will stay the same is the unibody.

I'm looking at about 30K+ before a paint job and the paint job is gonna cost quite a bit as well. It's gonna be a custom job and have about 10 coats of clear coat to protect the actual paint job.

All in all about 40-50K into the future (plus my living expenses) I'll have a nice, quick, safe classic Mustang.


P.S.

I don't know about the server9 thing. I have XP too, and it normally tells me things like that and when I'm at work, we have crazy filters and stuff. I wonder what all that's about.

I've been following this highly entertaining thread. As far as the photo goes, here's a couple links of photos I've posted (I hope they work).

I was hoping you'd post a photo of your mustang, Clutch. I love old mustangs. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. My first car was a 65 Ford Falcon. I loved that car and drove much too fast in it. Unfortunately, about a week after I got it, a dude slid on the ice and hit the driver's side door. He had no insurance. My dad still has it and intends on working on the it when he gets some time. It has a great engine but needs a few things replaced. I miss that car.

Hey, thanks! Falcons are great, I just saw a mint cond. white one the other day, I'm gonna assume it was early 60's. All old cars are worth taking care of. If hollywood had their way, they'd all be crased while making fast and furious (AKA Rice and ridiculous) movies.

Your babies are sooo cute!

Nice rides. I almost bought one of these:



for 2500, except the sea foam green had faded rather badly. Than I found a '70 boss 302 and went after that, After that got sold to "some guy from NY who was driving thru" I found a '71 'Cuda modded to accept Vette tail lights. that was 1500, but it got sold a day before I had the money and than my friend, Tom, blew the 347 he had in his 68 coupe for the third time and realized it was time to get a new motor and he wouldn't have time or money for the 66, so he sold it to me for a grand! WOO-HOO!!!!

Clutch is the man walking into the store behind Maidrite.
I know I'm really late responding to the posts about this, but it is the first time I have had the chance! We had actually just bought a car on ebay (it was in a little town in Pennyslvania right outside of Trenton, NJ) and were on our way home. We decided to do some sightseeing in Philadelphia, but we were so tired and hopelessly lost that we stopped at this gas station to buy a map so we could just get home. Kia just happened to be getting gas there and let us take our picture with her. She was so incredibly nice! As far as the prices on the window, both the $4.91 and $3.99 were cigarettes and not gas, or we would not have been traveling that summer!! That was before gas started skyrocketing.

Cool. I love to hear about the celebs who are down to earth and still know their roots. I went to a signing for Staind's album, Break the Cycle. Long story short, they were coming to Fords NJ from NY city and were supposed to be there from 8-10PM, they didn't arrive till about 8:45 and we didn't set foot in the building till about 10:20. It was about 10:45-ish when we got to the table and the first thing I hear out of the guitarists mouth was (to the lady who worked at Vintage Vinyl) "How are we getting paid for this? Is this going thru the label or thru you guys?" reffering to the "over time" they were pulling. Ever since than, I lost respect for that man. I still enjoy the bands music, but will never go out of my way like that again. At least keep it hush and out of your fans earshot! DANG!
