About One man and his Mustang

I'm just a man with a Classic 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe and a collection of tools that just keeps getting bigger in order to do the job right. I was lucky enough to drive a '66 convertible in the late 80's and I have never forgotten the sound, the thrill and the jealousy I had for that car. Now I have my own Coupe I can't wait for those feelings to come flooding back to me. This time it's different, I bought a dead car so I will bring her back to life with all my own hard work and help from a few good friends. Join me in this unique project of, blood (from the bashed knuckles), sweat (from the hard work) and the tears when it goes wrong! It will get there, It has too for my own sanity at least. That was what I first wrote when I started this blog along with the restoration. Now the car is complete I can confirm that there was indeed, blood, sweat and the odd tear. I now have the privilege to drive one of America's most recognised cars and a true Icon, the Ford Mustang. I'm still sane and would I do it again? Oh yes!
