Hey guys!! So I bought my 72 mustang back in June of 2012 when I was 17 years old. I was looking at two cars, a 1970 Mercury Cyclone and this car. This was actually the back up car, from the posting it was just "eh" to me. I saw the cyclone first and it was just a basket case, I was a little disappointed and then went to see the mustang. Well when I pulled into the guy's driveway I knew it was going to be my car! So long story short I put a deposit down, picked the car up 2 days later (was 200 miles away from me) and the car has now been with her final owner for a year and a half!! I have learned a lot from working on my car. Turns out it only had 36,000 original miles and so it was completely stock! It didn't last too long like that, as I needed to make it my own!! I ended up doing a lot more then i ever thought I would.

To start, I changed out the radiator and put in an aluminum radiator with electric fan upgrade. Then I changed out leaky power steering lines. After that I then upgraded my intake manifold to an edelbrock performer, and to match that I used an edelbrock 600 cfm carburetor and tuned it myself. I then designed my own exhaust system. I have always wanted to have a side exit exhaust, so I designed an exhaust flowing out right before the rear wheels. I then changed out my entire front suspension, by putting brand new everything in the front end. Thicker sway bar, new upper and lower control arms, and everything else that goes along with that, it now handles like a brand new car! (this also proved to much of my friends that yes, a muscle car can take a corner well) I also replaced every single weather seal on the car. And the thing I am most proud about, is that I painted it myself!! I did some body work, fixed a couple rust spots, and then painted it outside of my house! And I am very very proud of how it turned out!

I have literally poured my heart and soul (also all my money Big Grin) into this car and am very proud of the result!! My plan for this year among my busy college schedule is to do a T-5 swap into the car! Please consider my car for the February COTM, I would greatly appreciate your votes!! Thank you!! Smile

This was in front of a deserted psych center, thought it was a cool shot!

Good lookin' coupe! thumb

I don't know how anybody could drive down Times Square with the overwhelming sign pollution - but it's cool nonetheless.

Over the past month, learned a lot about judging cars via AACA and MCA nationals. Your's is an easy shoe in for stock. The most you have to consider is if your improvements are basically not so apparent to view and that it is spotless.
