St. Louis area noob
Bought my first 71 ~1982.  Green coupe, 351 2v.  It got totaled in college so i got a 1972 Sprint Coupe, also 351 2v.  Got married, car sat, rust progressed, stripped it and junked it.  I was without a 71-73 for maybe a year.  In~1995 I purchased a 1971 convertible Arizona car.  I purchased the shipping invoice so I know how it was built.  Grabber blue, Ram air A/C deluxe interior but still a 351 2v.  Very solid.  I worked on it like crazy for a yr, stripped it completely, got engine compartment, undercarriage and trunk painted.  Car was pretty much stripped by me.  New suspension was also installed.  Roll forward 24 yrs and I am going to get it finished.  I just replaced the right front apron (battery) and filled a few small pinholes in floorpans (biggest was maybe a quarter sized hole by the time I got it filled).  Rear 1/4's had some but only at bottom rear.  6"x6" sections were cutout and will be replaced in the next week or so.  I will try to post some pics.  I am hoping to gain lots of knowledge and impart what little i may have.

Welcome from Oregon. Looking forward to the pictures. Yeah, it's amazing how long these things can take, and how often they get pushed to the back burner.
