Hi All!
I hail from Houston, Tx. Born and bred there. Live in inner city (inside the 610 loop near downtown) Wife, 2 kids (1 finishing 1st yr of college). partner in an I.T. support business.

I have 3 - 1973 Mustangs. 1st one is a "Q" code 351-4V Mach 1. It's pretty loaded options wise. awaiting restoration, I have all new NOS panels for it I purchased some time ago.

2nd is a 1973 Mach 1 that we rescued from a field. Has a 351-2V, a/c, p/s, p/disc with a C-6. 71,000 original miles. Stored at a friends' house temporarily until I can catch my breath.

Latest acquisition is a 1973 Convertible 351-2V. It has sat in a barn for over 21 years. We are the 3rd owners of this car and the underside is immaculate, but someone left a wet beach towel in the trunk on left side and it swiss cheesed the trunk floor. typical tail light panel bondo, but rest of car looks great. Currently getting it road worthy to bring it to a car show early June just for kicks.

Also have a 64.5 coupe and got a Kirkham Cobra that I'm putting back together. Definitely a Ford family, but my daily driver is an '09 Dodge quad cab Hemi. Great tow vehicle and I love the 400HP of the Hemi.
