    Jimjific got a reaction from RPM in Finished Heim Joint Struts   
    Bob,
    Yes, I still have times where I miss that car. I had it set up really well and being that is was a plain Jane 302 fastback I didn't mind mods to it. Also, I still find myself thinking I have a tool that was lost in the fire.
    I did buy this with the insurance Money from the car.

    As the picture shows, it was from Florida. NY does not have palm trees. It was from a collector that passed away. It was a really nice car, but it never really felt like it was mine since it was already restored. Plus, the motor must have had 11:1 or more compression since it would ping even with the best gas I could find. The estate guy told me they ran 100 octane in it. So.... I sold it about two months ago. I am not kidding when I say it took only 20 minutes to sell it on Craigslist. I couldn't believe it.
    Ended up getting this about a month ago.

    67 GT Cougar. Early production car. Got it from an original family out of Colorado. It is probably the most original Mustang/Cougar I have ever owned. XR-7's hadn't come out yet but the guys aunt put about every other option in it. It even has a working tilt away wheel. I've been really enjoying this car, nothing feels like a big block car.

    I thought about, but I'm not sure I could do it and make any money. It would be fun though.

    Hello all, I just re-imported all the images to this thread that were lost during the sites upgrade. Makes this thread more interesting than imagining what the parts look like.

    Well up in Albany it is already getting pretty cold. So the only thing that I have done lately is Pertronix module and coil (Starts faster and idles way better. Best bang for the buck. I take the old points and put them in a bag and keep them in the car in case I blow the module) and a 13" air cleaner came today that was back ordered. I also might have found a 5.0 block and T-5 tran for the winter project. The guy wants $950 for a short block, bell housing, and tran.

    I haven't posted here in quite a while and I wish it was for better reasons. Well, the worst thing that could ever happen, happened to me last Sunday. My garage had an electrical fire and I lost every tool I had. I also lost my 69 Mustang Fastback and 87 Honda Magna. I ran into the garage to save the Mustang and got it out but because of other vehicles in the driveway, I couldn't get it far enough away. By the time I started moving the other cars, the Mustang was in flames. I had posted in the past a lot of the custom modifications I have done to this car including rack and pinion steering, strut rods and monte carlo bar. To say that I am down is an understatement.

    Bill, welcome to the site. I live just south of Albany. Unfortunately I won't be much help on the shop advice since I haven't had to use one yet.
