    When i drive this ill have one of these plates on my car: new plate or old one


    Well yes, it's an automatic BUT i will change that 200%, but that will be expenisive.. i'll probably built it into a manuel when i get a job and when i earn some money. By now, i'm still a student and only get money for birthday or christmas :p

    The engine is a 351 Clevland, V8 (what else? :p), 5.8L , abou 300HP

    Tomorrow will will take the engine out of the 'stang, and start to restore the engine :D

    You, sir, have my infinite respect! This project, and doing it by hand with a pre-working-days budget? That's something not many people can even try to do.

    Haha thanks :D Yes this is a car that won't be finished tomorrow, or in 2 years.. If me and my dad would have the money, we would restore that car in less then 8 months. But hey, that isn't even fun anymore, when you restore a car in such a short time ;)



    You have a Mustang? :D please send me your msn (or email) address, then you can show me pics of your 'stang :D


    Well you live in Singapore and I live in Luxemburg, that's a hella long distance :p

    Dude, in the states the mustangs are much cheaper then the one here in europe. But the americans know that their mustang are bought by european guys for like 3000$. And now they make the stangs expensiver.. So if you want to buy one, i think now is the last chance that you can buy one for good price..
    If you want i can look on the internet to find a cheap one for you ;) you live in texas right?

    Here you got one for only 600$ clicky!

    I dont know what year ur looking for but [URL="http://www.cars-on-line.com/fd13_60-69orig.html'']here[/URL] you will find one ;)

    Here some new shots, only thing left in the car is the engine, everything out :) No electricity, no windows...

    I'll go in vacation on friday, so it doesnt make sense to take out the engine.. So we decided to restore some little details:

    Thanks for your support guys :D
    And @86GT: Well what's your new car then? :p Maybe one day you will buy a stang, who knows ;)

    Here some new pics of the restoration, backlights and frontlights are now restored, BUT the backlights doesnt look so good anymore (which is ok after 43 years :lol:).. The 2 backlights cost about 300€, which is really expensive for 2 lights..

    Well here the pics, worked 2 hours on them today:

    Do you mean how many pieces are in the car right now, or how many pieces are already restored?

    I think what he meant was, that his Triumph is in 150 pieces ;)

    Nice progress on your 'Stang though... BTW, is that a Mazda 2 in the background of your second pic?

    She's looking awesome! I'd recommend a product called "Brasso" (Not sure if you Americans have it though!) Shines up most metals to a gorgeous shine.
