    Hi guys, I've just rewired my 65 mustang coupe with an American Autowire classic update kit. Install went well for the most part, but right now my battery keeps draining.

    Hi I have a 1965 V8 it was in an accident 30 yrs ago and has been sitting in my Dads garage ever since. I was rear ended so back clip is bad. Of course I never got around to restoring it (good intentions). How do I go about finding out it's worth.

    Started having issue with stalling a week ago; car would just fall on it's face during acceleration, but was also just running a little rough too. I had already purchased a new distributor with all internals and cap so I put it in. Ran much smoother, but still bogged down as soon as you added...
