Hello

Hello everybody.
Just joined the site and it is great to have a place to go for just our year mustangs. My brother and I purchase our 72 Mach 1 in 1986 and it was on the road for only 2 years until I finished college. My brother had left for college in Florida and I bought out his half. I could not afford to keep it on the road so it went up on blocks in my parents back yard and wrapped it up as best I could. There it sat until 2004 when I decided to try and restore it. I brought to my house and it sat under the deck for three years. I could not afford to really do anything to it ( two kids). Then my brother and his wife (no kids) offered to pay for restoration if they could keep the car at there house and use it. I went for it since I had like 15 years until my younger son would be done with college. Sorry for the long story but the car is finally almost done and should be on the road for this summer. I am very excited.

Welcome to the site! Great story and sounds like a good deal for you that your brother is paying for the resto.

Thanks! I tried to post a picture but I could not get it to work using that tiny pic plugin.

It is a good deal, it would have sat a long time otherwise. I can use it at least this way, we only live a half hour apart. I will buy the car back down the road when I can afford it. He will probably use the money to but another mustang. And any help on figuring out the picture thing would be appreciated.

welcome from Luxembourg, Europe.
It´s nice to read that your brother still cares for the car. That way it will be restored and it will stay in the family.
