July 2011 COTM! Rocketfoot's 71 Mach 1
#1
Keys 
Ok folks lets make this Official.
I here by nominate "Rocketfoot" for the COTM for July.
Story to follow

Thanks everyone! Here is the my COTM Story:

This is a 1971 Mach 1 that was originally restored around 1994. It used to be a show car for Cyberdyne Gauges and it has a full dash of digital instruments! It has a slightly modified 302 (bored to 306) small block with 289 heads and a C4 auto tranny. The previous owner added a Lokar auto shifter.

My Dad and I got the car about this time last year and have been adding a few touches of our own. We've installed traction bars and Pertronix distributor soon after we go it. Other improvements were mostly cosmetic including a front seat repair and lots of polishing. The vintage Appliance wheels needed a lot of work but we were able to make them presentable. We also installed all new door hinges so the doors would close right!

It is in pretty awesome shape right now and turns heads everywhere we go! My Dad and I are also restoring a 72 Coupe that was his parents but the slow going restoration spurred us to look for a car that was ready for cruising. That and a touch of "Fastback Envy" led us to this car on Craigslist and a week later, we owned 2 Mustangs!

I am all for it as well in honor of a man well deserving of the July title. I have rated the thread to garner attention of others but where do I vote? I am looking forward to the history and the obligatory (new) pictures.

Right under the first post, there should be a like button...just click it! That is the same as a vote.

I'm working on a congrats smiley...it's actually harder to find than I thought! LOL

Also...more photos and a story have been added! Enjoy!
