Hi All - My husband and I are new to this site. Back in high school my dad was a plumber and was paid for a job with a 66 Mustang coup with a 65-6 cylinder. I loved that car. Ugly green dead paint but it ran and ran. Drove it thru senior year and college. It got totaled 2 weeks before my wedding in 1976. I always swore I'd have another one.
Got the opporunity one day while scanning the newspaper classifieds. Was able to buy a 1966 red convertible project car that had a good body, but a cheap paint job. Completely stripped interior. However it did have a brand new crated 289 engine. Sat in our "tent" garage for a few years then we sent it out to be restored. Outta sight outta mind sorta thing. But we finally got the call, had to hurry up & build a small garage and in October 07 we got it back!
Well after a long wait I finally have my baby. It's candy apple red with red & white interior, white top. Looks perfect as far as I concerned. My husband did the interior. Turned out really good for a first timer.
Someone said recently said to me that mustangs were "chick cars". Well that's just fine, cause this chick has her car. I think he was just jealous.
Mark57 - we're in South Jersey as well.
