US Navy New Guy with 69 Stang....
« on: April 14, 2008, 05:44:21 PM »
Hello,
I registered to this forum a long time ago but never had a chance to get involved due to being deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Well I'm home now and I'm finished with the car. She's a 69 Coupe painted 04 Cobra Silver with a gloss black Mach 1 hood. The powerplant is a 302 stroaked to a 347 attached to a Summit Racing C-4 with a 3,200 stall. My baby came with a 9" so I didn't have to do anything to the rear end except offset it about an inch on each side. I look foward to getting to know everyone and hopefully trade some pony tips.

A hearty Bluejacket (former) welcome. With an ID like yours, I assume you're an airdale - but where. As to the 69, I like the color. I had a 69 Sportsroof back in 69 to 73, 351W 4V, 4 sp, black ext, red int. Mostly stock except for the Ram-Air setup I designed and made in welding school - graduation project. Hey, it worked.

What branch of the Canadian service were you in Theirry?  When I was in the Army stationed at Fort Richardson, Alaska back in the mid to late 60's, we trained with the Canadian army on field maneuvers.  Damn tough bunch of guys I might add.

 My wife is the CO of a Canadian navy cadet unit but I was in the French army in Achern and Renchen in Germany. At that time (1985), a one year military service was mandatory in France so I can't take much credit for it :D It wasn't my choice to join but I had the best time of my life there.
