Intro of Myself
#1
I was asked to introduce myself...be careful what you ask for.

Cars Owned/Currently Owned

73-91 73 Mustang Fastback 351C 2V Auto...Stolen 200k+ miles on original motor, trans, paint and interior. Looked and ran brand new. Never ever misfired, sucked oil, or missed a shift. Just changed oil every 3k, tuned every 10k and trans fluid every 100k. Found in 2003. Reported to AAA for the $1000 reward...they didn't pay me anything.

78-80 70 Cougar XR7 Convertible 351C 4v 4 Speed Toploader 9" Posi. Stock. Purchased for $200 with 80K on the motor. It was rust bucket that was dead as a doornail. Changed battery, put in freeze plugs so it would hold water and it fired right up. Changed the clutch once, used a couple of 1 x 4's to keep the driver bucket from falling through the nonexistent floor pan, and replaced the front and rear springs because one of the rear springs rusted through and started coming up through the floorpan in the rear seat....The top was tight though. Scary fast for how scary rusty it was. Sold because some "idiot" offered me $1500 for it...what I would give for that motor/trans/rear end today.

85-Now 70 XR7 Vinyl Top 351W 2V Auto. 180k miles. Fully rebuilt drive train, front end and interior. Great daily driver...yes the rear end turn signal lights work(it is just WRONG for the new Mustangs to have sequential turn signals...just wrong). Sounds like a Mercury should.

88-Now 73 Mustang Convertible Auto
Born an Yellow Paint/Black Int I6.
Spent its teen years as Red/Black 302 pig
Died 2 years ago(Thank you lord), and will be resurrected as a 351 4V daily driver...tame but with an attitude.

I can all my own mechanical/maintenance work. Cannot paint worth a darn, so the body shop will get a ton of my money.

I hate posers, and by poser I mean a guy who:

1. Buys a used classic.
2. Runs it over to the mechanic and drops in a crate engine.
3. Runs it over to the body shop to bump and paint.
4. Runs it over to the upholstery shop to custom fabricate interior.
5. Shows of his car like he spilled his blood all over the car, dirtied his wife's bathroom sink with grease, and left motor oil and tranny fluid on the bed sheets.

I am tired of getting crap parts from the auto store or some not yet named Mustang Specialty Parts Suppliers. I prefer to find OEM parts or rebuild those pieces that I can by myself.

But, I don't mind sharing my opinion...imagine that. Just don't give me crap because I spent enough time on a farm to know BS when I smell it, see it or taste it.

Keep hoofing. Hope I can be of help to the community.

Welcome to the club! Glad to have you here. Great introduction, by the way. We enjoy reading the stories of our Mustangs and their owners. I think you'll find this website to be a little different than the others.

PS Any chance we can call you something other than zgwforum? Maybe Z or something? Smile

Wow...that is a nice convertible.
