I had a thought and I will put this thought out there to see if I am the only one who thinks like this. My Mustang dash area has been butchered by the bloke who owned it before me by cutting a bigger hole for a new style radio. The question is do people listen to the radio in their classic cars, or do they listen to the music of a glorious v8 or v12 thundering down the road? I will of course put an original style radio back in the gap via a repair panel that has to be cut back into the dash, I doubt I will even care if it works or not. The thing is that I imagine myself with the window down, the wind in my hair and the growl of a small block 289ci in my ears.
Any thoughts, or am I just on my own planet Mustang, all sad and alone?
Over the weekend I was pretty busy and only able to do a little bit of work on the car Sunday afternoon. The main thing I wanted to do was to try out the new product I just had delivered. The product is exclusive to Frost and it’s called “Liquid Wrap”. I was interested in this as a product in order to protect the restoration I have already done. The first thing I was going to protect was a chrome bumper as it is just hanging on my garage wall at the moment. The product Is a spray that dries to a rubber coating after a few layers, recommended about five or six. I tried it and I like it. I was sceptical at first but this rubber is unique as the layer can be peeled of at any time. I have done a review of the product under Reviews – Consumables – Frost’s Liquid wrap. I also posted a video in my YouTube Channel as well.

A “Real” classic car like yours, not mine should have the original radio in it. There should be static in the air as you spin from station to station. While this is a beautiful sound, I agree that the rumble of the engine, rotation of the cam, and the heart rate changing sound of the whole car is the real music that plays in the hi fi speakers of a muscle car enthusiast.
You tell a real petrol head by the way they talk. Totally agree.
