  1. Over heard a young man trying to impress his girl friend with is knowledge of classic cars, explaining that the inner headlights were fog lights on our 69 Mach 1. I just smiled and let him talk.
  2. I'm tired of waiting for show season so set up a table top car show.
  3. Back in the early days, I had a problem with the stud that the cable attaches to was loose in the starter and caused an intermittent problem.
  4. My wife ordered hers with the full sized spare.
  5. I use Armorall tire and wheel cleaner. Tire in photo is 6 years old, they are 12 years old now and still look as good. Spray it on, let it set a few minutes, scrub with soft brush and rinse.
  6. I twist mine so they don't touch the paint. If you drive it and they are touching the paint it will leave a mark.
  7. Never under estimate an old man that drives a classic Mustang! My wife is the original owner of our Mach 1. She ordered it in Jan. 69 and got it in Feb. Her dad (a farmer) was with her when she ordered it. He suggested she get the Mach 1 option as it had heavy duty suspension but thought the 351 was enough engine for her. She was in her 3rd year of teaching at a small town high school. The high school boys thought she was the coolest teacher. We met later that year when I returned from a year in Vietnam. It was a daily driver until 1980. We restored it after our kids were out of collage and are enjoying driving it again and going to shows.
  8. That moment that's better then any trophy when someone looks your car over and says WOW!
  9. Your car looks great. When we first started showing our Mach 1 everyone told us the two important things were clean and workmaship. Not what you have done to your car but how well you did it, is everything neat and fit well. When it comes to cleaning, clean, clean and clean some more. If any of the shows you go to you can ask for a copy of the judging sheet to see what you need to work on. If you like the way your car is I wouldn't change it, just make sure it's clean and neat. Visiting with other car guys and making new friends is as much fun as winning trophies.
  10. Here is mine and I do a little photoshop too.
  11. User list shows you joined Monday at 8:35 and account not yet activated. I'm not able to verify your email address Looks like the email should have been sent. Try the phone number another time or two.
  12. The stalling is most likely due to weak spark because the battery is running low with no charge. I would get the alt working and see if it still stalls after that.
  13. Did you use the same username for the Mach1 forum? If so your name does not show up and users signed up but not activared are included in the list. If you used a different username I could check that, if usibg the same you might try registering again as there could have been a glitch the first time.
  14. Our 69 Mach 1, Acapulco blue w/black interior, San Jose build, came with black strips with gold center. The build sheet has a block for "Tape Strip" 2nd row column 41 and the code on our's is "M". Don't know where the attachments came from and I can't delete them.
