its just a rusty plane fastback Mustang.


Personally I'm glad they paid a decnt price on national TV
It is about time these cars went up in price
If they all sell for dirt - no one will make any parts for them

Good deals are getting harder to find. $10k asking price was high. I think they guys paid more than I would have. But I would have left and then called them back a few weeks later to see if they still had it and were ready to talk. That doesn't make for insteresting TV.

I love it when I see them at auctions going for big dollar$, it just raises the value of our cars that much more.

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

if the prices go up a bit maybe we can get a full quarter made.

I would much rather be able to buy a good quality panel than do patchwork on a junk panel.

I've made myself a promise to not having anything to do with Fast 'n' Loud or Gas Monkey Garage. IMHO, they're the absolute worst example of just about everything they do - well, maybe not everything - they do manage to negotiate some seriously low-ball offers and somehow get the owners to give up their rides (but it's almost insulting how they do it). Their restoration work is crap... their choices of what they do to cars is crap... and what they charge [for what they do] is ridiculous.

The guy I bought my '71 from had the idea that he was a player like those guys - I still paid too much for mine when I bought it (even at just $1600). He came by the shop about a year ago and without any prompting told my pal Gonzo he'd offer to buy it back for $5K. Yeah... go away, you ignorant insect.

As far as the Gas Monkey Mustang: I've got a $20 bill that says a set of 'Mach 1' stickers winds up on that car... and another 'Fiver' that says they put the trunk spoiler on backwards. rofl

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

Totally agree. It might not be as "interesting" (as a result of the antics and whatnot), but at least Danny and his crew seem to be more realistic, do better work, are more 'up-front,' and MUCH less 'douche-baggy' with the people they deal with.

It's kind of like the whole Pawn Stars thing - apparently, those guys have let the 'celebrity' go to their heads a bit, as they are not nearly as 'personable' as their show depicts (I've read some rather disappointing reviews of various peoples' dealings with them - and expectations were shattered). When the cameras are rolling, they're the nicest people on Earth... when they're off, they don't have time for their [apparently] adoring public. I see the Gas Monkey guys being the same way - but, don't know for sure.

The Counting Cars guys are a little more used to the whole 'on-camera/off-camera' bit because Danny Koker was already established as a local celebrity-kinda guy.
