Hey Guys and Gals, My names Kevin and Im a proud new owner of my fathers Mustang.. Hes had it since I was 5yrs old and I basically grew up in the back seat of this thing.. Ive owned 8 Mustangs through my Teens and early 20's. Now im 27 and hes handing the keys over.. Problem is shes been sitting for a while, Ive slowly been upgrading things for the last 5 yrs as he would allow! But since its mine now, Im digging deep, fixing things it needs and upgrading things as well.. Hope to get much good info on her though this site!

Heres the Sats on the car as I know them!

Currently the front ends coming off because of some rust I need to take care of, Its on the driverside below the rad support, looks like the front bumper support is badley rotted.. hopefully the frame is ok behind it! So new Rad support is going in as well!

WELCOME aboard, Kevin!

Thanks for sharing the story on your '73 Mustang. It is GREAT to have the car that your Dad treasured. I am glad to see that you apparently share his enthusiasm for the car.

When you get time, you might want to start your "garage" so that we can track the progress on your Mustang.

Again, Welcome and I look forward to interacting with you on the Forums.

BT

Do the RIGHT thing.
