Great Forum...
#1
runninpony 
Hello,

Have recently "re-discovered" the 71-73 Mustangs... and was stoked when I found this forum.

I'm a 54 yr-old Construction PM originally from New Orleans, now in South FL, and plan on buying one down the road. (I presently have a 350Z and a 4x4 Expedition.)

As a kid - I thought the 71-73's were easily the best-looking Mustangs, and thought the Coupe was just as cool as the Fastback for these years. Can't believe how affordable these 71-73's are!

Greatly looking forward to learning everything I can here to best help me decide which year and style to buy. Will probably not post much except for an occasional question - hope that's cool.

Thank you.
Sid M.

Welcome from another South Floridian, Sid, and be careful on the tri-county Craigslist. There's a lot of nice looking (and horrible), overpriced trash hanging about there.

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.
