Greetings from Monterey California
#1
check 
Hello All,

Just taking a moment to introduce myself. I've been a Mustang owner since 1975, first one was a 65 hardtop that I put together. Still have my 65 convertible (since 1981). I had a 73 Mach I back in the late 70's and always hated that I sold that one. Great driving car for a guy 6'4"!

About 10 days ago I was driving to work and spotted a 73 convertible parked by the road. My first thought was "Boy, wished that was for sale". 2 seconds later I saw the For Sale sign and did the fast U-turn. She was a mess, VERY dirty, running rough and terrible brakes. But pretty much all there. Made the deal that day and had her home before the Mrs. arrived.

Now the work and fun are beginning. I'll contribute when I can but I have lots of questions too since I really haven't had to tear into one of the 71-73 before.

Best wishes,
Monterey

Welcome to the site from another 6"4" 73 Mustang Convertible owner. Plenty of headroom in those convertibles!

Looking forward to seeing pictures and hearing more about your convertible.

Greetings from Virginia. Sounds like a nice project. You have found the best place for information and help with your new ride. The guys here seem to know everything about these cars.

Take some time to check out our member map as well. A lot of Cali members here as well.
Cheers.

Thanks guys for the nice comments. I've noticed that there are a couple of places to post tech questions, 71-73 Mustang Talk has over 17K posts and many are technical questions. The Tech Forums seem to have less. Where's the best place to post tech questions (I've got a few!).

Also being 6'4 don't you wish the seat went back just a bit further or you could recline it? I've got to figure out how to do that. I would have sworn my 73 Mach had more leg room.

Monterrey...too bad you don't live somewhere that would take advantage of all a convertible has to offer.

Good luck to you. Not an employee of SYNERGETICS by any chance?

Welcome from west Michigan! We love convertibles around here. I moved my seats back 3 inches (6'3") it made a world of difference.
