1973 Mach 1 Q Code
This mustang was restored in 2005. This is a Q code Mach 1, mostly stock with the original paint scheme, engine was bored 30 over with a mild cam. Mostly driven in the spring and summer months. Fun car to drive.

Wow. I really love what you did to the car. Looks great. I really like the unique hood stripe. Next to my bumblebee color scheme, I think the blue/agent is my favorite.

I'm 30 years into a 7 month restoration LOL. Since, I'm OOW (out of work), I'm using my current affliction of ATDS (Attention to Detail Syndrome) to keep me going.

I know what you mean. I have another 73 mustang which is a coupe, been restoring it since i brought it back in 2005, i know that not as long as 30 years, i do admire you sticking with your project. It looks like you have done quite a bit so far and i have no doubt it will look great when you finally finish. It's a labor of love and that whats makes it so much the better when its finally done. Best of luck, be sure too post the finish project. I do like the bumble bee yellow paint. I might just paint the coupe that color, it is eye catching.

The color combo is a blessing and a curse. The first year I had it, I ended up loosing my license from the local boys trying to remove the lead from my foot through my wallet. At 13 points they don't let you just pay the ticket anymore. You are off the road. So I decided to get out of dodge and let uncle sam take me on a three year vacation from driving. When it was all said and done, the car still ran and my license was clear.

They say that red is the "arrest me red" but my yellow sure looks like a great target.

Nice paint job.

Did you get it painted or did you do it yourself?

I'm in NJ and looking for recomendations for a decent Paint shop that isn't too $$$$.

If you know of one let me know.

Thank you. I got the car painted in egg harbor township, in south jersey. However the person that painted it has pass away. He was a great guy and belong to the same mustang club i belong to. And he did a great job at a very good price. Here is a suggestion, the Garden state mustang club located in north jersey has a web site, you can google it. Post your request there members are all ways ready to help other mustang owners.
