When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
The car is a 73 Mach 1. Its got a 351 Cleveland 4v and a C6 transmission. The body is kind of rough and it doesn't run. But i did get it for free from one of my dads friends. The mustang used to be my dad's and he sold it to this guy in the 80's and he really let it go. Its too bad. I put up some pictures in my garage.
Welcome Ben good deal you got dads old Mach1 back. Post some pic so we all can get you pumped about your project. Mike.
