A good find for me, and a new Mustang buddy.
So I was searching thru the CL ads for Mustang stuff, and I found a shell of a 66 convertible. It was a factory V8 car, with disk brakes. I went back and forth with emails to the owner, and the final one was that he had another guy interested in most of the parts, but he'd still be left with a rolling skeleton. It would however, still have the 8" differential, the complete front suspension and steering linkage, and the front disk brakes! He then said that if I wanted to come get it, that he would give it to me, as it would save him from having to cut it up himself. I told him that would be awesome, as I had a 6 cylinder 4 lug car, and am looking to upgrade the brakes. So, last night I went to his house, loaded it up on my trailer, along with a couple of seats I can use for parts. He was then showing me his 66 convertible project, his SVO Mustang that he's the original owner of, and we had a nice chat about Mustang projects. He took my offer of some Sam Adams, since he wouldn't take any money, and he told me he wanted me to send him pictures of my progress of the brake upgrade. So I'm giving a shout out to my new Mustang buddy Jim, and a thank you for his generosity.
