    BTW gorgeous cars guys, that mustang. WOW.

    No problem Art. The one next to it is a Kaiser, we will get to it eventually. We are total stock guys, we really do our best to get them back to factory stock. We just feel that is the better way to do it. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with chopping and beefing up...just not my cup of tea

    Post some shots Lunar!! we would love to see it!

    The mustang we picked up at a local auction, the old man that owned it started the restore and died before he finished. It had some cooling issues and the tranny bands were in bad shape. Past that everything else was good to go. just your typical barn kept fixes brakes, carb rebuild, tires and gas tank.

    We have a total of 16 cars. About 10 left to restore, and most are Edsels. 1958 to 1960. Most my father inlaw has collected through his life, others we go halfs on and restore and then stare at them LOL! We have only ever sold one which was a Packard Clipper, and that was to make room for the Mustang

    Geeve

    Nice, I wish my camaro was that simple. Seriously my wife would murder someone for that mustang.

    Here are some shots of the car BEFORE any work had been done. It's up on jack stands right now half dissembled. As I said I have a complete suspension kit going in. When starting the install I figured I might as well run all new brake lines, and then I figured new masters and new brakes, new bearing, rotors ...etc etc etc.

    Very nice Lunar!! Not a big "bowtie" fan personally (though I have a soft spot for Pontiac Trans Am's) but that is very nice!! I am digging that color!! are you goig to keep it or repaint? Nice bikes too Do I see "ape hangers"?

    The mustang has been willed over to my Daughter when she is 16 if something happens to her grandpa, Though if he is still kicking (which I imagine he will be) she will get it anyway. I chuckle at that because she isn't even 2 yet and has a nicer car than me LOL!!

    Geeve

    Nice Camaro LP. I like that year. It's always something more. I did the whole suspension on my T/A as well. Have fun with it. A Guy

    Lucky girl. I went to highschool with a kid that got a fully restored candy apple red 68 fastback for his first car. This was in 2000.

    I've done so much to the car and the worst part is I missed some huge issues when I bought the car. Kicking myself because I overpaid by 2 grand easily. All of the hidden rust and work it needs. With that all said, I knew it was going to be a big project when I bought it.
