Re: 1968 Cougar Heater Core Replacement With AC

So I remember in the video Don makes a comment along the lines of you never know what you will find during this job. That could not be a more true statement! My heater box was already removed when I bought the car and now during reassembly I wanted to take advantage of that and stick a heater core(n...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Thanks for posting your progress. I know I’ve said it before but your thread is really helpful in putting mine together.

Re: OT - Russian 1967 Mustang Clone Rhymes with Caviar Goes Like Stink

I think the Tesla powertrain swaps are gaining popularity and have seen a few in the net. From the sounds of it Tesla’s get totaled pretty easy due to the cost of parts and Tesla won’t support used parts being used as service parts.

Re: 69 M Code XR-7 70K Mile Survivor Discovery

very cool story on how you acquired that cougar and glad its found a home to be well taken care of. It is amazing how many people see an elderly widow and try and fool them into a good deal for themselves just to save a buck. Kudos to you for helping her try and find a buyer then ultimately working ...

We had just gotten married and were leaving to drive to the old Marriott Hotel in downtown Atlanta for a two night honeymoon. My friends had wr...
