Took a bunch of pictures
#1
I finally took the cover of my Mach last week before all of the snow.Cranked it up and drove around the neighbor hood.I have not driven it since Christmas eve.I have been kind of leary after my adventure.
I was taking the grand son's through the neighbor hood Christmas eve having a good time until Pa decided to show off,you see where this is going? Anyway out on a straight way I nailed the throttel going real slow and before I new it we were spinning tires,shifted to second and it got worse.By the time I got out of it we were sideways,over corrected and did a 180 almost down into a ditch by the time we got stopped.
Lucky for me we were buckeled in and the car stopped before we hit anything.No damage,just dirt,the boy's were good also.They thought it was cool.
We went right back to the shop,wiped it down and covered her up.I had to do alot of explaining to the boy's telling them how dumb Pa was and that we should not have been doing that.Oh and don't tell Nanna,your mom or dad. Yea right! When we went back inside my oldest looked like the cat that ate the bird! Nanna new right then something was up! My Tristin spilled the beans.
Any way just finnally got it back out and took a bunch off pictures to show you guys.I am still trying to learn all of the features here.I posted them in my garage,if you have the time and are interested.

Sad

i have not driven mine since i think the end of November. at the rate we are getting snow this year i think its staying inside with its cousin until late march.

All this car withdrawal has forced me into my other addiction, i mean hobby, draining my bank account.

Ok. I've got a 65 coupe in restoration now...a 66 coupe in waiting, then my beloved 72 Mach Q-Code. The first two are "practice cars" so I don't make any mistakes on the great one.
