I'm quite content with the low prices. Donor cars remain cheap and accessible, and the snobs stay out of the community.
Even though I prefer working with clean panels, I'd rather be forced into doing some honest patchwork with original panels than trade it for repop panels at the expense of higher prices and interest.
How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

I agree with Don...Price does need to move up a little..Cause sooner or later we are going to run out of parts cars " like the people who are tring to restore pinto's today" If your car is too low ball and non popular...It will vanish too history and never be worth the price to fix up.
Reminds me of a old harley davision 175 dirt bike i had...Was a cool bike....Fast and cool...But when the piston ring ate on me...the price just to replace the piston was worth more than the whole bike...Was never popular enough nor worth enough for anyone to make aftermarket parts for it for long....I do not want our stangs to get to that point....Same thing with a 1964 mercury marauder we had...cool car had the hi po 390...I loved that car, But getting body parts for it or interior "shakes head" you would have to be jay leno to afford them...They made 34,000 marauders in 1964...You are hard pressed to find one for sale now days...Parts? Ha!! lol

There's a reason I stopped watching the show. After having my heart broken when the cut up a bronco for huge fender flares I just couldn't stand it anymore. It's nice to see the era of cars getting attention, but I almost feel like "Count's Customs" is a better show to watch
