Quite simply this is a personal adventure where I, as a keen amateur and a self-confessed petrol head, will try to get a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe v8 289 back on the road here in the UK.
I have had the car since September 2011 and I have learned many things since then. Some good, some bad and many in theory. I plan on sharing my trial and tribulations here with you all. The good, the bad and the damn frustrating.
Patience is a virtue so I am constantly told, but in my case – it’s a hindrance. I want my car on the road and I want it there now!
My head tells me it won’t happen, my heart tells me it’s got to. It’s a juggling act, time for me to do the things that need doing, money to allow me to do things I need to and the wish list that just gets bigger and bigger.
My main love of my life is my wife; if it wasn’t for her then none of this would be happening. She bought the car for me as a hobby, I have always talked about that great day when I drove a 1966 convertible Mustang around 25 years ago. I had never forgotten the sound, the feel- the way it made me feel.
So here it is: Darling, a massive Thank You, I love you more than the car (just!); perhaps I don’t always show it but it’s true. Technically though, you’re now a member of an exclusive club – The Mustang Widows Club!

I have learned a few things from your site and still more to learn. Thank you for taking on this huge undertaking. I have a ‘66 convertible we just purchased, looks immaculate but we are finding a few things that need to be taken care of. My husband has his first car he is working on, a ‘68 Camaro.
Hi Gina, thanks for the kind comments I appreciate it. As for a ’68 Camaro – full respect given. I do like a classic Camaro. 👍
Yep, I’m in that club too! (Mustang Widows) lol!
Lol, thank you for the comment. 🙂
Hey! Your site looks great. New to wordpress, but not new to Mustangs. Keep the passion and great success on the restore.
Thanks for the kind comments. Your site looks pretty cool too. I will add stuff to my pages to show I’m subscribed to you, once I have worked out how to do it. 🙂
Keep up your good work.
Thanks so much for the positive comments. It would be great if you could follow me. PS tell your wife she’s pretty awesome for buying you the Mustang!
You beat me to it, I was in the process of following you and putting the link to my page for you too.
As for my wife she spoils me rotten, I may not tell her just how amazing she is, but she knows deep down I think the absolute world of her. 🙂
