HELLO FROM TAMPA, FLORIDA
#1
Hello my name is Ron. I have a 73 Mach 1 that my dad gave me 5 years ago after he had it since 1980 his daily driver my whole life. I started restoring 5 years ago before I started college. I finish college last week so I am getting hot on it again. My dad saw it last week at my gradution and started crying because it was his. The car is just the body. I have put all new metal on it. So my father gave me $1000.00 gift card to NPD and said get it done before I die, he is only 56. will add pics later...Ron

Welcome to the site. Great story! Does you dad live close-by so he can lend a hand restoring it. That would be a great project for the two of you.

Welcome, Ron. Like others, would love to see pics. Or, if you ever cross the bridge to St. Pete, I'd enjoy meeting you and seeing your car in person.
