Do you own a early year Mustang?:
If you own a Mustang, how long have you owned your ride?:
What do you do for a living?:

If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car?
If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?:
I removed the after-market gauges and had the original gauge cluster restored. There were 20+ paint daubs that needed to be sanded out and retouched up. I found a date correct Holley 780 carburetor in Michigan, rev limiter in Ohio, smog pump in Florida, heads in Texas, distributor, water pump and fuel pump in Pennsylvania. I even had a duplicate plate made up for the front to match the one the previous owner had in the pictures that he shared with me from the 70’s. The car was finally looking like it did when it rolled off the showroom floor.
What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?:
This winter I plan to repaint the trunk, add the pinch weld stripe, touchup paint the passenger mirror, rear quarter extension, remove the dent in the gas tank, replace the passenger vent window and open up the rear end to check for wear (it’s beginning to hum).
