New Mach1 Owner from LI NY
#1
runninpony 
    Hi All

I'm a crazy ole car guy that has a serious addiction to speed. A Mach 1 Owner I know from a Lightning Forum (mdan575) recommended 7173 so here I am. Lucky You, LOL .....

What can I say, I'm a friggin nut case that buys performance Cars & Trucks pretty much 24/7 and I change vehicles like most people do oil. And yes I'm a switch hitter and I also love Chevys, FLAME SUIT ON, hehehehe....

I'm a 5 time Ford Lightning Owner, (including a DD that ran 9's), I've had a 717 RWHP Terminator, ProCharged GT, 99 Cobra, 79 Pace Car, Multi Notch's, GT's, a few 64-66's, a 69GT, and multi Pro Street Rangers. So even know I just sold my Pro Street Sierra with a fully built 502 Solid Roller Motor with a 871 and twin Holleys, and I am in the process of selling my Turbo Syclone AWD, I do bleed Blue through it all and I always seem to come back to the Stangs.

This time I think I came back STRONG
(not here yet but paid in full and should be here in a week or so)

Nice car indeed. Had an 87 gt that would do 150 all day on the autobahn, wish I had turboed or supercharged that baby. Very stout for an almost stock 302 without air.

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

Welcome from Oklahoma - sounds like you are a serious 'gearhead'. You'll like it here.

Car looks interesting. Post up more pics and more info on it! We can't get enough PICs!!!!

btw I don't think need that flame suit for this forum. Many fire extinguishers placed strategically keep that to a minimum around here. Smile Plenty of other forums for that stuff if someone is so inclined.

welcome from Luxembourg, Europe.
My first thought when I saw the pic was "Wow!", so I´ll stick with that. Smile
No flaming from me. I like all cars, as long as I find them cool. Don´t care if they´re Chevys, Mopars, AMX, Fords.... whatever.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

I like the stance of that car, looks really mean. BTW, welcome from TriCities WA.
