Hello From The Show Me State!
#1
Well, I am new to the forum but certainly not new to the wonderful world of Mustangs!

Name is Mac and I am a 52 year old USAF retiree, husband of one, father of four and a pastor to many. We have lived all over the country and a couple of foreign places as well so if you see me write "we used to live there," you'll know why. For the past six years we have called St Peters, MO home and it looks like it will take!

I started my love for Mustangs in 1974 when my dad brought home a 1966 Springtime Yellow coupe with a 289 and a C4 Cruise-O-Matic. Two days after bringing it home Mom drove it and bent the left front quarter panel and mangled the headlight bucket and part of the grille. To say the least, Dad was disappointed in Mom's driving abilities.

We went to work on the car and got it all fixed up with all new parts ordered from the local Ford dealership and new paint from one of my dad's friends. I can still hear KYNO playing on the car's radio while we worked.

Since then I have carried a love for the little cars and have owned quite a few of them. Some were for daily drivers and some were parts cars (or at least intended to be) purchased to cannibalize parts for the restoration projects. Either way, I have owned all of the classic years except for the 1969 and have owned one 1990 LX 5.0 and a 2003 V6 version I bought for the wife (though she would disagree). in all it has been 16 over the years since my latest acquisition, a 1971 Sportsroof.

That's it for now, I am an open book so if you have any questions, feel free!

Mac

Welcome Mac,

Glad to have you join up. Nice car history.

Not retired, nor former military but I am the husband of one, father of six and pastor to a few. Currently serving in Mexico but also served as a missionary in New Zealand and then started a church in Arizona before coming to Mexico.

Glad to have you here.

Welcome to the club, Mach! Glad you found us.

I am constantly amazed at the diversity of our membership. We have several pastors, many current and retired military members, etc. all connected by the common thread of their love for their cars. Pretty cool stuff!

Thanks for your service to our country, and welcome aboard!
