Re: How long did it take to find your car.

"time to move on to the next project (unfortunately I do not have the time/cash for a collection - just 1 at a time)." My thoughts exactly. It stresses me out to keep 5-6 cars insured, stored and maintained. I enjoy the hunt and the tidy up process, even the auctioning process can be fun albeit ner...

Re: What factory build mistakes have you seen on Cougars?

No rear side reflectors on a 1 owner original paint 68 GTE. Mustang Vin on a 68 dash with the correct vin placed squarley over it but not fastened, one rocker moulding on a 68. Something to do with the strike in 68? Maybe...

Re: 1967 GT on Sacramento Craigslist

Very happy with my site unseen purchase. Nicest hood blanket I have seen in years, often on low mile cars that have been parked for years mice tear them apart. Not a single mouse dropping anywhere in this car! First on the list is to get some Firestone Wide 0vals on it. 67c5.jpg 67c4.jpg 67c3.jpg 67...

Re: newbie question on what year to buy

Welcome! I say 68... They are safer and many of the bugs have been worked out from the first year model 67. These videos will help you pick a good one, I say be VERY picky and take your time. $20-30k puts you in the sweet spot to find a cherry but the dealers will often choose any old piece of crap ...

Re: Best Coolant ?

Makes me curious as to what my Grandfathers 66 F250 looks like inside as it sits right outside my door here at work. He only used distilled as he had the hardest of hard water in the Desert area of Fort Rock Oregon. He bought the truck new and it has almost 400k miles on the 360. Of course it has be...

Re: Best Coolant ?

Being as we have very soft water (we are in the country and have hard well water which requires a softener system) and distilled has risks I am going to stick to my garden hose. "The problem is that when water is distilled, or “stripped,” of its minerals and impurities, the resulting solution is com...

Re: 67-68 Hood and Drivers Door

Can you post the data from your door tag? Load a picture or two if can as well. If you are in the neighborhood I alw...
