Hi everyone,

What started out as a search for a 1965/66 Mustang for my girlfriend ended up being a 1971 Mustang Mach 1 restomod project. I actually bought her initially as a side project but now my gf wants me to use our funds for this car since it's:

1) An automatic.
2) Makes a lot of horsepower and has a rebuilt engine and transmission.
3) We plan on repainting it either black or the darkest midnight blue we can find. She likes intimidating dark cars.

Also, after we restore this Mach 1, we'll resume our search for her own 65/66. I plan on eventually adding some suspension mods and taking her to an occasional open track events (I'm a former autocrosser and open track guy).

I'll post more details in a bit. Nice to meet everyone!

Rich
