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:
We used to be neighbors. I was stationed at Spangdalem AFB in Germany. Its about ten miles from Bitburg, Ge. Traveled all over your country. You guys have a awesome Patton memorial there. Enjoy the site.
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! :-)
Ok, as , 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.
