72 Coupe as a First Car
#1
red logo 
Hey I just bought a 1972 Mustang Coupe as my first car. I was looking for a 71-73 Mustang forum and within minutes I stumbled upon on this forum. I don't have that much knowledge of cars but am looking to learn everything I can possibly learn about my car and cars in general. I'm 19 and leaving for boot camp for the Marines in a week but am looking forward to being on the forum more. Cheers.

WELCOME aboard!

I take it you have made plans for the '72 while you are at Parris Island?

We like to think that this Site is a GREAT place for one to "hang out" and discuss our hobby. Even if you don't have your car, you can still log on and interact when you "find time" - - if the DIs will allow itSmile.

Again Welcome aboard and THANKS for making the decision to serve our Country in a very selfless and tangible way.

Welcome to the club, 72 Azure. Thank you for your service to our country. There are a lot of veterans here, so many of us know what it felt like a week before heading to bootcamp. I recall drilling with our Navy bootcamp company right next to MCRD in San Diego. We thought we had it rough until we saw the USMC recruits. Confused

Anyway, we're glad you're here, and hope to see your posts when you get a chance.

You've come to the spot. This is it. Also, you'll find a few of us have also served in the past. Just remember what the DI is trying to do, take a civilian mind and make it a military mind. It takes a few weeks to get "conditioned", and you'll spend a lifetime remembering all of the time you're in.

I too, bought my first car and then left for the military. Still have it and the great memories of a far off distant spot on this blue marble...
