New Guy Here
Okay let me take a moment to talk a little about myself and my car. My name is Russ and I have been in the United States Army for 9 years now. My wife bought me a 1973 H code Mach one while I was on my second deployment in 2005.

I am the second owner of this car and it only has 77 K miles on her. It did have some fender rust and right behind both door, which I assume is from the quarter windows leaking, not sure but I bet someone on here will let me know.

I do belong to another mustang site but if I knew about this one earlier I would have been don with my car already. When I got my car it was all factory all the way down to the OK stamp on the drive side valve cover.

I am currently changing the fuel tank, ripping out the carpet to fix floor pan,and preping the motor to purrrrrr. I will need help with the ram air, since I went and got a hei my cleaner will not work.

I am looking to stay factory or for the most part. I spent some money on the motor but I could not stand 177 hp in that car. Thanks again and I hope to help in anyway I can,


I got stationed at Fort Riely, KS in 2010 and just returned from Afgan and this last weekend I went and picked my car up from my parents house where it was sitting since 05. I have put maybe 50 miles on it since I have owned the car.

The motor ran horrible, exhaust was rotted out, and the pewter 5A was nasty. I have started a few project on it to make it ready for the road and I will be posting alot of pics and question, because I know that I love mustangs but I can shoot ,move , and communcate, but I am not a know it all when it comes to cars, but hope to find someone who is that can teach me.

My dad taught me and my little brother alot about cars when we were growning up. He has had alot of hot rods, so I have the basics down, but welding, mods, andthe bones of the car will take me a little bit.
