Re: I'm ringing doorbells with my hands concealed from view

These cars are rarer than GTEs.

Re: Solid or Hydraulic lifters in stock 351?

Check rocker arm cups for wear. Push rods slop around and make a clicking noise. Not always the lifters.

Re: 2 VIN numbers

In the many Cougars and Mustangs I've looked at, they have never had anything stamped where the 'RED' number is located. Several duplicate VINs I have seen were one above the other in the "BLUE" area. Being a 67 there is not the second tag under the windshield to help in verifying. You should send b...

Re: 67/68 tail light panel + rear body parts wanted.

If you are buying these for the Pennsylvania car better double check the rear rails. They looked pretty crumbly and the first burnout or launch could crack them at the apogee.

67s with sunroofs

A guy at a cruise-in asked me about the history of 67 Cougars that received sunroofs. I couldn't remember enough about it so could not answer him. Were there 100 converted? Are any still around?

I'll call it 'Forest Green'. Saw a Mustang once with this color.

I just couldn't find anyone I knew that was going and didn't have a car. I did visit the spot in 75 and talking to a neighbor of the 'farm' he said the next several years Yasguar had quite a cash crop growing among the hay. Those must have been some happy cows. :D

This is to reduce emissions and prevent backfiring. On acceleration manifold vacuum drops and ported becomes dominant pulling the breaker plate...
