No I’m not going to ask for donations…although….well…nah! HEY…maybe a Go Fund My Ford website? Well if any parts house (@NPDLink – you guys rock), restoration supplies or tool distributors send something – even a t-shirt, I’ll post up an ad on AGCarRestoration.com for you, heck I’ll wear the shirt during one my unprofessional videos!!! Um…not that I’m doing anything unprofessional….just not a professionally produced videos.
Seriously now, I was asked to day – thanks Bill for reminding me that I should touch on this – what my budget is for this project. My real answer is I don’t have one. Not…”I don’t have one” as in it’s unlimited – remember average guy, average budget – more like “I don’t have one” as in “I don’t know where that moneys coming from” .
I didn’t set a budget with my 1970 Mustang, things just happened and I went with it.

It will be the same with this project. #ProjectSportsRoof will be the way I want it, which I haven’t nailed down yet, so suggest way by dropping me a comment (got your crate motor idea swimming around in my head, Bill) and that will happen fast or slow and cost what it costs. I’m not going to flip the car – this one is a keeper. (So was my 1970, up to a certain dollar amount.)
This project is different than the ’70 Stang, I want this one to be more of my work than the ’70 was – although I did a lot of work on that beast. This project will be at a slower pace, I think, than the 1970. (If you recall the the ’70 Stang was helped along by the fact that driving a 6 cylinder (250CID – with 159,000 miles) with the A/C on was like peddling a bike up the Washington Monument and the young kid who was to busy entertaining his GF to stop behind me at a red stoplight.
This one will be different.
Like this? Maybe.
Coming up tomorrow will be the 351C walk-around (actually performed that a couple of days ago, but videos were…bad!! I even lost the first segment).
Thanks for reading.
1973 Mustang – Project Sports Roof
As I posted before, after a vigorous (not read ‘desperate’) I finally found my next personal project. The 1973 Mustang Sports Roof Fastback is what I settled on.
1973 Mustang Project SportsRoof – Exterior Walk-Around
Welcome back to #ProjectSportsRoof. I run my car projects much like I run my IT projects. You always have to know where to start and know the end game. As with any project that isn’t being built from scratch, in other word, …
