Hi all, and Happy Holidays and New Year. I just joined this week, I have been snooping around for somewhere to get good information about the newr Stangs. I bought mine in July after the Company I work for stuck it to us and took back our vehicles, though they did do me a big favor because now I am again an owner of one of the best cars ever made. I had a 69 many moons ago, and when I went to the dealer, which my younger brother sells for, and saw this car I bought it without even sitting in it. I have the Roush Stage 1, Windviel Blue, don't laugh, it is an automatic, but I drive it 110 miles a day back and forth. Price was really good, but then my brother would have suffered if he didn't get me into the Family plan for pricing :laughlitt.

I will probably have a zillion questions in the near future as I begin to do mods to this baby so be patient with me. I'm used to the older 60's - 70's type cars.

Nice meeting you all - Joe

Welcome, nice meeting you.... Hang on it gets pretty goofy in the lounge sometimes! Tech page is a great place to get answers. I rely on the place to help me along.

I had a '69 and a '70 Mach so dumb of me to sell them, Russ

Hi Russ, Thanks, and I have been scouring the tech site pretty heavily. I had a 69 Mach back in the late 70's and I too was pretty dumb and let it go. But time has healed the wound by Ford when they came out with these models, they look and remind me a lot fo the older one.


Ciao for now - Joe

Welcome. :drink: Like Russ said, it can get rather goofy in the Lounge, but I've gotten a ton of information from these folks. Bunch of valuable experience here.

Happy New Year!!!

I had a 70 Mach 1 and was talked into putting in a full frame, tubbing and narrowing the rear end by a good friend of mine who at the time owned a custom car shop. Long story short, he had a falling out with his partner, closed the shop and the car sat in storage unfinished for 8 years until last year when I finally had to part it out.

I missed it until my 2005 GT arrived. LOL, maybe it's time to change my user name:eyepoppin .

Welcome

How do you like the retro look? Do you think it comparable to your 69? I could also kick myself for letting go of my 66 vert. I am living a new dream with the 05 though.

I hope this new retro look takes you back a little to the old days.

Hi JD, I love the retro look. When I went into the dealership, one look and I told my brother to write it up for sale. I didn't even care if it started, I knew I would get it to do that later. Now the fun starts doing all the mods. It's stepping back in time and a lot of fun.

Have a safe and Happy New Year - Joe
