New guy!

So, I don't actually have my 'stang yet, but I will soon. Quite a few years back my dad bought a '71 that had some serious body and interior issues. He rebuilt the 302 and did a few other things and for reasons I don't remember, he decided to get rid of the '71 and get a '72 Mach 1 that was in much better condition. He pulled the 351C and dropped in a 429 w/ tranny, had a custom exhaust put on, and did some other things to it.

Fast forward a few years and after running out of cash, he decided to get rid of it. I "volunteered" to give it a good home, so in a few months or so I should have a pony in my stable!

I found out about this forum because I was over in the VMF forum and Rocket invited me here. So, here I am!

Thanks Roy, I've been lurking here for awhile and I have to admit, I'm lusting after your car!

LOL, yeah he got a good deal on it, I think it was $500 or $1000 for the whole drivetrain out of the neighbor's '70 T-bird. It's not a Cobrajet, but it'll get the job done!

Thanks it has a long way to go but hopefully this year anyways. But thanks to our government and these gas masters, money is getting tight so who knows.
