My First Car
#1
Keys 
My names Max, ive wanted a mustang since i was old enough to know what a car was. I'm 16 and building my first car (a 71' mustang coupe) with a rebuild 302. I've built it from the ground up; "with the supervision of my dad" but every bit of body work, engine work and interior was done with my own hands. i look forward to talking,learning and associating with all of you on the site. The work is never done on my car but i should be putting pics up extremely soon. personally i think my car is BEAUTIFUL and i cant wait to hear your guises opinions. Smile

my cars red and black (just a heads up)

Welcome from Ohio!

I think it's cool that you are building your first car with your dad.

BTW, it's fun to smoke the tires on your muscle car when a civic with a fart pipe pulls up next to you. Big Grin

Welcome to the site, can't wait to see some pictures. I have a lot of good memories working on cars with my pops 20+ years ago.

Welcome from an old fart. I had a 72 Coupe 25 years ago and I have a 73 Mach 1 Q code now. I thought both were awesome cars. Anything you do with your own hands is a learning experience even if the result is not as planned.

I also owned a 76 Ghia with a 302 when I was 16 and a 95 GTS back in 1995. Your love affair with mustangs can be a long and enjoyable one.

But if you don't post up pictures . . . wll then we'll have to talk about you behind your back. Smile

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
