Hi I am Nik. I am a Newbie to this forum, but not to Mustang Forums. Never been on one for my 1971 though. I am originally from Texas, just did a decade in the military and am looking to get my Mustang out of storage and do another restore on her. Her name is Victoria R, the R is for resurrection. I named her after her older sister that was a 2006 Mustang GT that I sold and 3 days later saw smashed to hell on the back of a tow rig. hence the name of the 71. Currently she has her stock motor which is a 2 barrel powered 302 with power steering and power brakes followed by a C4 automatic tranny and an 8.8" rearend. She has a decent paint job that was applied in 2003. She sits on a nice set of old school style Magnum 500 15x8's. A lot is going to change to her over the next few years. I hope to get a lot of advice and support from this site. Thanks!
