    My 70 Mustang, slightly modified.

    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    I like the pics that have the girl in them much better Paul. Is she still around ir did you let her get away?

    You mean my avatar and these 2 pictures? When it was good she treated me like a king but when it was bad it was REALLY bad. It got to the point I couldn't trust her farther then I could throw her. I found she did the dirty deed with my best friend so I threw her out. In fact it was the guy in the above picture facing the camera with the sun glasses on. He's dead now so he's not around anymore.

    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    Yep those were the pics i was talking about. I never was a Ford fan but i gotta say that is one good looking Mustang you got. Theres a guy that lives down the street from me that has a 69 Mach 1 with a 429 Cobra Jet motor and the car has 4k original miles on it. Its blue with a gold stripe and it still looks like it did the day he drove it off of the lot. I would hate to think what that car must me worth.

    Thanks, it is one of a kind. WOW only 4k and the original owner. Off the top of my head that car could be worth 90-100k if it's in as good a shape as you say.

    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    This car im pretty sure came with a 429. I could be wrong on if its called a 429 cobra jet but im 99% sure that its a 429 engine. I haven’t seen the car in many years but im sure that its a 429. Paul would probably know if they made a 1969 Mach 1 with a 429 motor. Care to chime in on this Paul?

    The only 429 in a Mustang was the Boss 429, a semi hemi design, if you have one it's a 6 figure car. 69 and 70 MACH 1's were the 428's

    Oh yeah!
    [quoted image]

    Now THAT'S what I'm talkin about!

    #132 8 months ago
    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    It truly is everything im telling you it is. The car has the original paint on it and it doesn't have a scratch on it that im aware of. The guy used to live on my street and i used to go talk to him all the time. He still lives close to me but he did move about 15-20 years ago and is probably around 70 years old now but he still has the car and he'll never sell it ever.
    I guess there is probably a nicer one somewhere around out there that got garaged as soon as it was bought but i guarantee you that there is only very few in the world as nice as this one is.

    If it has all the factory tags and crayon marks all over the place that really adds to the value.

    $2700 cash, it was my first car. Ordered it Dec of 69 and picked it up May 1st of 70 for the last month of Senior High. Payed for it with my paper route money I had saved for 8 years.

    My buddies 70 MACH 1, originally a 351 Cleveland 4 speed. Not quite stock anymore. He's the second owner, bought it in 72. Oh is it FUN!

    Quoted from AlexF:

    My uncle's last Indy didn't end well either. He survived but never raced again. Somewhere I have one of these pics signed.
    [quoted image]

    OS SHIT! Those are his legs sticking out in mid air. Did he keep them?

    #187 8 months ago
    Quoted from AlexF:

    Yes, he got a broken ankle I think. He suffered a traumatic brain injury from the G force. He was in a coma for quite awhile and then a long road to recovery. He was my childhood hero and I got to drive him around for errands and such some time after. It was fun, he was a character.

    Man he could have lost both legs in that situation, he was luck to survive.

    #188 8 months ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    I did stomp on the gas in my Galaxie with the 390 in it, with my girlfriends brother and two of his friends in it and drove the car off a cliff. Only thing that saved us was a tree 30 feet down or it was another 150 or more to the bottom. Lesson learned and that started my career as a mechanic tearing the remains of that car apart.
    Great uncle Louis and his mechanic did not fare so well.

    Sad to see they didn't make it.

    Quoted from dmacy:

    Any of you guys been to SEMA? Headed there this year as a bucket list.

    Never been there but a friend of mine has a business called Innovative Tools and Technology. He sells auto body shop equipment that he and only he designs. I think he's up to 3 booth spaces now. His name is Brian, I used to do all his promo videos, if you see him say Hi for me. Also if the Bonneville streamliner Turbinator is there say Hi to the owner Rick Vesco, I was the team videographer when they set the FIA world record back in 2001. Say Hi to Rick for me.

    Quoted from woody24:

    Traded in my 2006 Mustang GT for a 2017 Mustang GT this past December. I miss the '06.
    [quoted image]

    I would think the 17 is the better car.

    Quoted from fiberdude120:

    Thinking of getting a new GT350 any thoughts? Getting tired of my corvette.

    Oh now your talkin.

    #248 8 months ago
    Quoted from dmacy:

    From a car show I was in today. Some really nice classic muscle there and didn’t get to take pics of a 1/5 of them.

    Quoted from skyrex:

    Some more photos from some events I’ve attended......and a rough wreck I fortunately survived.
    [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    WOW, your lucky to be here.

    #257 8 months ago
    Quoted from skyrex:

    That was my first GT. I wasn’t even speeding. Going to see friends at cars and coffee on a Saturday to talk about the event I had participated in the weekend before when I went over 230 for the first time. GT has no traction control and at the bottom of the on ramp a truck or something had dumped some gravel. I shifted to second just as I hit the gravel and the rear end lost traction and whipped out. Honestly I have corrected worse but it was a tight two lane and I ended up in the grass .....which if you don’t realize is like ice. Slid into a eucalyptus tree and went from 60-0 instantaneously. Broke my right ankle and had an open fracture on my left leg. True story. My wife was sitting with me in the ER and she had driven in the event the weekend before. She had gone over 200 for the first time. So she looks at me and say “I had a good time last weekend” I replied “so did I” then she said “well we are going to get another GT right?” lol
    One of the many reasons I love her.

    and they say racing is dangerous. Yeah she's a keeper.

    Quoted from Roostking:

    Why on Earth would take a small block over a big block!!!

    Price
    Weight
    More room in engine compartment
    Higher reving
    Better fuel mileage
    Cost of parts
    Just to name a few.
