 If you are a freelancer, why don't you post a link to your website in your signature. This way, when users look at your photos, they will be able to contact you and you could associate your passion and your side job  ;D
 What about your Mustang coupe? It has been forever since we heard about it's restoration progress.

Are you going to get another big block motor in a crate?   That 429 could be made into a screamer.

I was thinking about it but try to find motor mounts and exhaust for my year are very expensive thats if I can find them.
But Im thinking about a crate 351 Windsor from ford. I keep forgetting that this is my wifes car not mine. ;D

You already have the 429 in the car, right? So, why throw obsolete motor mounts into the equasion?  The exhaust can be manufactured by just about any muffler shop, so don't use that for an excuse. 
If it was mine, I'd yank that 429, have it rebuilt to my specifications and throw it back in that bad boy.  Nothing like originality IMO.  My wife is 55 years old, and gets a big smile on her face everytime she drives her Mach 1.  Don't sell the women short.  At any rate, the 351 Windsor can be modded, but certainly nothing like that big block 429.

well the motor is not original for this car . It came with a 351 Cleveland and like a dumb ass I sold it. The prob ids that I can not find 429 mounts to the sub frame as well as headers.Plus if I go with a 351 small block there are bunches of parts for it.

Aha, the truth comes out.  You can get 351 mounts all day, but yeah the 429's are hard to come by.

 You can get much more torque and power from the 429 but it's a heavy engine and not very practical for normal use. The best performing 69 to 71 Mustangs where the Boss 302 and Boss 351. The Boss 429 was only good on straight lines.

Race, you got to go back with the 351C brother. I wish I had an extra one I would give it to you, because I had a chance to get one that pushed some good power, but I didn't want to use it since I had the factory one. I think that 429 would have been hot but like Thierry said all that weight, but let me know what you are thinking.
