Just another noob..
#1
Hello,

Just another new member. I don't currently have a Mustang, but I want one. I am a retired USAF cat still serving as a contractor in Afghanistan. I have a little time at the end of the work day to surf what kind of toy I want when I come back to the real world. I have surfed all kinds of old car sites for months. I have narrowed it down to a 71-73 Mustang coupe. A lot of things are involved in that decision, to include prices and parts availability. Mostly, I think it's a nice looking car with plenty of muscle potential. I have had a few hot rods in my day. I bought a '57 Belair with lawn mowing money when I was 15 yrs old. Had a '73 'Cuda in high school, and a '68 Chevelle after that. I even owned a '76 Mustang II Cobra II back in the "80s. It was a 302 4-speed that I built up. It was fast and ugly. Enter military service, no play toys for the last 28 yrs. So now I am looking at available mustangs online. I will use it as a daily cruiser, maybe some traveling, and would like to be able to auto-cross a little bit just for fun. I would like to find a unit with a good body to start with, nothing collectible. There would be suspension and brake mods, interior upgrades, and a modern drive train. Sounds like a million other wish lists, I'm sure. Since I've been out of the mechanical stuff for a while, I will be spending even more long hours researching vendors, parts, and advice from people with experience. I'm glad I found this site and will explore every page of it in due time. Good luck to everyone with their current projects.

Welcome aboard from Wisconsin and thank you for service. I love the 73 Cuda's they are my favorite year, there's something about those round tail lights.
