Hello from Mississippi. Looks as though you have already starting making some very Wise and Mature choices. When you get a chance please tell us some more about that very sharp looking "First Mustang" and yourself.
Welcome to your new Mustang home!   Smile

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

It is a '73 Coupe with a 302 that is mostly stock, but has a few mods.  I am the 3rd owner. I found out the car was delivered just a few miles from me in '73. The 2nd owner restored it with his son over the past 6 or so years.  The day I got it I had the valves adjusted because of a slight metalic ticking (One was slightly loose and is quiet now), Napa battery (710 amps), and oil change (just went with the Castrol 10w-30).  

1. 4 Barrel Holley carb & intake
2. Comp cam
3. dual exhaust
4. Hood (no HP gain!)  Smile

I really enjoy the car as it is.  I love the exhaust note, the torque, and the upper end hp I believe is helped by the cam.  

I can't believe how much respect the car gets around town.  I am not used to the attention.  Oh..and my 5 kids love it!

I am not in a hurry for any upgrades as I only had the car for a week.  But, my wish list so far is:
1. Electronic ignition (still has points, but starts right up)
2. A little larger/wider period wheels (similar to the Mach 1 wheels)
3. suspension (feels squishy.  I would like to stiffen it up a bit). 
4. aftermarket headers 
5. considering rear and front spoiler (haven't made a decision yet).  I would hate to drill holes in the nice trunk lid.
