Hello Everyone. My name is Paul Deahl and I just became a member of this forum today. A little background about myself; My first '73 Mach 1 was bought back in 1985 when I was 16 yrs old. I flipped quite a few hamburgers to buy it. It was a basic Mach1 with a 351C 2V and an FMX tranny, nothing special. I worked on it for 3 years and was just about finished with it. I had rebuilt the motor, tranny, interior and was ready for the paint job when I got T-boned by another driver who ran a red light.

I bought the car back from insurance and used a lot of the parts on my 2nd Mach 1. This car was a little more special. It had a set of 1970 351C 4V heads, ram air hood with all duct work and vacum inlets, fold down rear seat, C6 tranny, pop open gas cap, heavy duty suspension with front and rear sway bars, and the deluxe interior.

Needless to say I've hung onto the car and despite some minor mishaps along the way its almost finished, I think.

I'll post some pics and a description of the modifications I've done once I figure out where and how to do so.
Welcome .

welcome Nice story, it appears we are almost the same age, I didn't get my first until 2002, and it's only been around the block a few times... hope to get cranking on it before too much longer though!
