I FEEL BETTER
#1
I RECENTLY JOINED YOUR SITE, AND AM GLAD I DID. I PICKED UP A 71 MACH AWHILE BACK AND AFTER I STARTED ON IT I MUST ADMIT I THOUGHT ABOUT PULLING PARTS AND SCRAPPING THE SHELL. I GUESS PRIDE KEPT ME FROM DOING IT. BUT NOW THAT I SEE THAT MINE IS FAIRLY COMMON, IM MARCHING ON WITH IT. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU. THANK GOD THAT I HAVE SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE IN BODY AND FRAME WORK, BOTH PROFESSIONALY AND AS A HOBBY.

welcome I wish I had the skills that some of you professional body guys have, but honestly, I don't think I would have lasted if this was anything more than a "hobby"! I can sure appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into these restored cars though!

thanks to all of you... AND I LIKE THE THOUGHT OF THE RUSTED ONES, NOT GOING ALL OUT RACE, BUTTTT. CURRENT PLANS ARE FOR A 545 SOMEWHERE AROUND 6-650 HORSE BACKED BY A C-6 AND THE 9" . THE 460 TRANS AND REAR ALL CAME WITH THE CAR, CANT WASTE IT, TOO MUCH POTENTIAL AND BY THE WAY BAD MACH HELL THERE ALL TOYS, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE PRICE OF THE TOYS!!
