Car of the Month Trophy A+ Writing Meet and Greet 10 - 14 Music Note

    Hello from Luxembourg

    Hi everyone.
    My name is Mike, I am 39 years of age.
    I live in the small country of Luxembourg in the heart of Europe.
    In addition to my love for all things automotive, I am a guitar player and collector.
    My Mustang is a 1972 Convertible, built in December 1971.
    It came from the Dearborn assembly line in Medium Bown Metallic (5H) with white interior and a white Top, power windows, console, Convenience Group, Appearance Protection Group, Magnum 500 Chrome Wheels,
    Competition Suspension, Metric Speedometer, a 302cui, FMX and a 3.00 Traction-Lok Axle Ratio.
    When I got her in 2001, she had already been painted red after a few accidents and years of abuse.
    When I had her restored in 2005, I removed all of the side trim, had the taillight panel and the grille blacked out, installed a 1969 Mach 1 hood scoop and had the body refinished in Corvette Yellow and fitted 15 inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
    Recently I swapped the 302 for a Ford Racing 351W crate engine and fitted OE Bullet Wheels in 18 inch. (9x18 with 255/45 front and 10x18 with 285/40 in the back).
    Right now, I'm thinking of getting a NASA hood and giving her the full Mach 1 hockey stripe kit..... we'll see.
    I'm happy I found this place and I hope to spent some quality time on this forum.
    At last a place for "grown men's Mustangs":cool:
    Best regards,
    Mike

          RE: Hello from Luxembourg

          Hey Tnfastbk!
          I don't believe it.. an ex-neighbour! I was in Spangdahlem for this years car show. Unfortunately it rained so hard we hardly wanted to leave the car and had to hide in the bowling alley.....
          I know the Patton Memorial, it's about a 5 minute drive from there to where I live!
          Oh, and the Mexican Restaurant in Bitburg is still the only halfway decent one around here! :-) chili

          Ok, as worthless, I'm gonna post some.
          There is one pic with the old AR Torq Trust in 15 inch, before they were replaced with the 18 inch ones, though.

                    Welcome to the club, Mike! As BT (cobra3073) lamented, the convertibles are becoming a contending force on this forum. Tongue

                    I look forward to hearing more about your car (and your country). Good to have you here.
