1973 Mach 1 back from MOM, Mustang Owner's Museum
#1
I went down to Concord, N.C. and picked up my 1973 Mach 1 from the MOM, Mustang Owner's Museum. The Roval race is this weekend but there was just nobody there as usual even with free parking. NASCAR is going to die soon.
They had Ford day today at MOM so had to wait until noon to get the car. Three guys that were visiting the museum were thrilled to help me take the car out of the line up and switch out the rear tires and load it on the dolly. 
It did start right up after sitting for 6 months without charging the battery. It did not smoke and I backed out of museum and pulled on the dolly. 
They helped me put two quarts of transmission grease in the transmission I did not have time before taking down. I ran up to 70 mph pulling back and had rain last 5 miles so it got wet first time in 37 years.
BTW I guess it put miles on due to transmission turning tail shaft. 
I will post some pics tomorrow. 
The three guys were so excited said like going to art museum and getting to handle the Mona Lisa, lol. They could not believe it was original they got close look at it. 
So it will be at the Maggie Valley Mustang show the oldest in the U.S.A.. Then it will be the 1973 model at the PITS, Ponies In The Smokies in March 2020 on the inside display. Might got to museum in Pigeon Forge after that. Lots of interest, Mecum wants to sell it.
Here are some pics just before it left the museum and in the front headed home. It was probably the most original 1st. generation in the museum most were restored not original.
So at least one time our years was not put in back. My car was the third car inside the museum right behind Carroll Shelby's Black hornet. I do not know how to spell his name never a fan of a failure like him. If I need to explain I can in detail. There is an empty spot until next week then a new car is in place. Do not know what car.[Image: DSC-1105.jpg]

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
