Welcome, I have been a Mopar and Ford man all my life, no place for GM, except for my pa-paw's 70 stepside pu that he gave me, it's special cause he had it since new and took me riding when I was very young.  I'd tell him I wanted it, 20 years later, he gave it to me, as he said he would!  Nice Mustang, I traded a 69 Mach 1 fpr the blue 440 4 speed Cuda below in 89 or 90 I love it!  I just sold my 67 Mustang fastback to my cousin and need a deck lid for it.  Still have the 67 coupe I've had since 82, it has real fancy deluxe interior and all the fancy extras.  I also have a few Chargers, Cudas Challengers Valiants pickups and others.  I'm in a big mess right now so I'm having to sell some of them, it's depressing, but there's a few I must always keep!  I love my antique car stable!!!  And my German Shepherds!!!  I'm thankful for everything and to still be alive to appreciate it!

By the way what kind of times are you running at the strip?

Nothing to brag about. The achilles heel of my car is the friggin' Ford 8" peglegged 2.79 rear end. Can't get off the line without spinning. I've run 9.75 @ the 1/8 mile. Not tried the 1/4 yet, which is sad, 'cause my car really starts to haul ass when I get the that 1/8 finishline.

What do you have for an engine?  What kind of rims are those?  Very cooool!  :thumbsup:

It's an 351 Windsor with the Edelbrock Preformer RPM package. (Heads cam),  RPMAir-Gap manifold, BG Speed Demon 750VE. Don't know anything about the pistons.
The rims are Boyd Coddington (Gotcha series) Rallye II.  They're 17x8. Michelin Pilot Sport rubber.

Wow, that is quite a collection of cars. the 440 4 speed cuda is of course a keeper. Hang on to the good ones.

Nice Mustang,  that first pic is great.  I almost bought a '69 Mach 1 project for my daughter a few months ago.  Her boyfreind bought it instead.  He now has a '67 Mustang GT convertible, a'68 fastback project, and the '69 Mach 1 project, but he's a good kid anyway. lol
