    '67 Mustang coupe
  1. Yea Def. a great thought on the paperwork, I have heard Mass. is difficult with this. AJFord54 -- I think you nailed it on what I am looking for. I grew up in a car family, driving in parades, going to AACA meetings, and slopping around in the mud at Hershey to find a better Model T fender than the one we had, and I've loved every minute of it. I am looking for a car that I can get to know inside and out and develop piece by piece but one that I can drive while I work on it, if that makes sense. I have learned a number of the techniques for restoring cars over the years, but I am struggling with the initial evaluation and what to look for.
  2. Thank you for all of the great replies so far. Yes Steve I do attend some of the events at Larz Anderson, I also just bought a house right around the corner from the Endicott Estate in Dedham so I will be going to that show in July. When I was 16 I restored a 67 mustang with my father for my first car, and I have helped him maintain his model T's, so this time on my own I am looking for something different. I am a big fan of '54-'60 Willys trucks and am looking for a project that I can work on for a good amount of time...searching for parts at swap meets...driving in parades...and taking to rallys.
  3. Hi Everyone, I am finally at the stage in my life where I would like to start a restoration project and I was wondering if anyone has any tips / resources they know of for buying a project car. Basically I am looking for a checklist that people go through or methods that are used when evaluating cars that no longer run or are missing vital parts, such as fuel tanks, fuel pumps etc. Feel free to add more to the list, but things I can think of that would be important to know are: -- How to determine if an engine turns over. -- How to test electrical if there are missing headlights or instruments. -- Testing if it rolls. -- Checking the Transmission. -- Determining if the rust is surface or structure. -- Determining if body puddy was used in repair. Thank you for any help you can give.
  4. Thanks Craig. That could be the most random website I've been on, but it does look nice. Hopefully my Brother's doctorate in French Literature can come in handy.
  5. I'm devastated. The plug on retropub sold last week!. It was beautiful with the original wooden box. Does anyone else know of where I could find one? Thanks, Gary
  6. Awesome. Thank you. I was on the site and didn't even see it.
  7. Hi all, My father owns an 1898 De Dion Tricycle that he is constantly restoring. Being father's Day soon I thought I would post to see if there are any people selling De Dion spark plugs, or any other De Dion literature or parts. Thanks for you help, Gary gary.n.bridge@gmail.com
