Hello everyone! I have recently brought home my first project. I have a feeling that I am a whole lot more trouble that I thought. But first a little history on my situation....
Growning up by stepfather had a 1988 notchback. A lot of my childhood memories are in this car. He was always rebuilding something. I remember many weekends of him out in the yard working on this car. Because of this car I have ALWAYS loved a Mustang. The sound of one has always felt like home. He sold it some time a few years ago. I never asked any questions then because I didn't ever feel the need to.
He died suddenly Feb. of 2010. I searched for this car for a year before giving up. Everywhere I tried to look was a dead end. I was told many many times that it was parted out, then salvaged for weight. This past weekend I came across it by complete chance and brough it home Sunday. It is currently just a body. Everything needs to be rebuilt.
I know that I am getting myself into a lot of work. How much, I have no idea. I do know that I want this car back on the road! That said, in time I will do it. I am here because I am going to need all of the help I can get. I know that I am going to have a million questions that I am going to need to ask somewhere! I am posting some pics. One from when I was little, when the car was whole and complete and a pic of now.

Ma'am If nobody was smiling down on me I wouldn't have found it. A complete stranger gave it to me. Didn't charge me a dime and helped me load it.
