    hello from IL

    Great to be here. I have two 73's. I bought my fastback 18 yr's ago and my mach 1 2 yr's ago both are H codes. Just did an engine swap and trans rebuild on the mach. Still have a few lose ends.

        Welcome aboard! I can see a trend here...nobody can own just one 71-73! I haven't even finished my coupe build and I'm already looking for a Mach1 or sportback! (Sugar and Spice)

            Looks like you and I "joined up" on the same day.

            What kind of engine swap did you do on the MACH I? Did you keep the 351 or go with something else? Any other modifications? Any major problems with your swap or great lessons learned? Do you have pictures that you are willing to share?

            Welcome aboard!

                      MB,

                      Very nice slide show you added to your original post.

                      For All: MB has added a slide show to his first post above that shows his two cars - - worthy of a "Look."

                      Thanks MB for sharing!
