  T-Shirt Design and Pre-Order Info!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 4 hours ago - Forum: Site News - No Replies

Ok guys!  I am proud to present the final artwork design for the T-Shirt!  We are now in the presale phase which means we need to sell 100 shirts to be able to place the order.  I am hoping to get most of them presold so we know what sizes to order an don't end up with a lot of extra shirts!  Presale will run until June 30th, 2020 and the shirts will ship early in July!  So, here is the link with more info and purchase buttons...please don't wait...get your orders in soon so we can order the correct sizes!  We do have about 20 shirts already presold so just 80 more to go!!

Get yours now:

Here is the design artwork...

  New Forum Software!
Posted by: rocketfoot - Yesterday, 03:21 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (1)

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that we may migrate to some new, state of the art forum software!  We are currently on MyBB open source software but it is lacking new upgrades and safety updates lately.  I am testing the newest IPB software and MyBB converter to see if I can move all of our data over to the new software.  If it works with out any loss of data, maybe we'll give it a try! 

The new software features just about all the features that I currently have to add to MyBB with 3rd party plugins!  Plus it is fully responsive for mobile use!  There will probably be some bugs from the conversion but if minimal, 7173Mustangs would advance to a new level of world class websites and be set for many more years of safe and secure service!

The current site will be unaffected by the conversion so no worries if the conversion goes wacky!

So don't be alarmed if you see a slightly new and improved forum in the next day or so!!   thumb Big Grin

  7173 T-Shirt Pre-Order Info
Posted by: rocketfoot - 05-13-2020, 08:30 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (28)

Ok guys...I talked to my T-Shirt guy from work and I think we can do this!!  How would you like a professionally designed and printed shirt featuring 71, 72 and 73 Mustangs in all 3 styles...Mach 1, Coupe and Convertible??  These shirts will be 100% cotton Gildan shirts printed in Pittsburgh, USA!!  Not the crappy print to order kind! 

To make this happen, I have to put a $500 deposit down before I get the artwork proof so we will have to have a pre-sale sight unseen to generate the down payment.  I just don't have the extra cash laying around to cover it.  

The shirts will start at $32 each (small upcharge for BIG guy sizes) including shipping to your door.  Sizes are available from Small to 5XL with TALL available.  The shirt will be black with our 7173Mustangs logo on the front breast and a full color design on the back.  Like I said, I don't have a proof to show yet but you won't be disappointed!  This company does a hell of a job at designing!  The forum won't make much after the cost of the shirt plus shipping, packaging, etc but they are going to be worth it!

The order will be 100 pieces so we will need to fill it with pre-orders in 2 to 3 weeks to cover the rest of the balance.  I think we can do this and I know it is going to be your favorite shirt!! 

Here is the pre-order page...let's get this done!

  Get your Decals Here!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 04-22-2020, 02:38 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (37)

Ok guys, I have some outside and inside decals on order!  They will start shipping May 11th, 2020 so please go ahead and get your orders placed so I have a good idea of how many to order! 

Decals will be full color and 4 inch diameter.  The inside decal is designed to stick on your windshield above your inspection sticker...but it would also look great in the 1/4 windows or back glass, etc.  Use the outside decal for sticking to tinted glass!  The inside version will not show through tint too well!

See the order page for more information and to place your order!  The Paypal cart is set up for multiple items as well...mix and match!

I finally came up with a nice, simple logo for!  I'm thinking that this logo would look good on some T-Shirts, hats and decals!  What do you guys think?  Would you be down for some official 7173 merch with this logo?

Hey guys!  I am happy to announce that we have a volunteer author writing for the Blog on the 7173 Wiki now!  He is going to compose articles of all types including humor, historical info and even member interviews and spotlights!  Be sure to check it out on the Wiki pages!  The link can be found in the nav bar above under Mustang Data.

On a side note, we are still looking for some folks to help edit and add content to the main Wiki which would include facts, numbers and general knowledge of the 71-73 platform!  We especially need someone to help add content to the special model categories.  There is also room for more blog authors if color commentary writing is your thing??  If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM!

  Donations for the 7173 Wikipedia!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 03-27-2020, 03:18 PM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

I just wanted to post a standing THANK YOU to everyone that has made a donation from the new 7173 Wikipedia page!  It runs on a different system than the forums and all donations are pretty much anonymous so I just wanted to extend a big thanks to everyone that uses the Wiki and enjoys it enough to send a few bucks our way.  All donations absolutely go towards the cost of hosting, bandwidth, disc space, server fees, etc!  Every little bit helps!

I also greatly appreciate all the VIP donations and upgrades!  Again, every dollar donated is greatly appreciated!  It is truly humbling to have a community that appreciates the websites enough to donate and help lower the operating costs!  You guys are awesome!!

Thanks again!!


PS...we are still looking for anyone that would like to help add content and edit the Wiki!  It is a simple Wordpress site so no coding skills are needed!  Just like blogging!
