73 convertible
Bought the car around 1984 to replace my first car, a '72 Mach 1 that sadly met with some black ice one night... Used the car for years as a daily driver. Now used mainly on weekend or for short local runs. Did the top and interior a couple of years ago. The paint is about 12 years old. Still a lot of fun!

Thanks Jeff. I have fun with it! Like all of them, it's an ongoing project. Just did the rear main so that it doesn't mark it's territory so much (!) and put the chin spoiler back on this last weekend. I took it off oh so many years ago when I had to replace the lower valance and just never got around to replacing it!

Great looking 73! Looks great for a 12 year old paint job.
