I was bored so I figured id make a post on our latest project. A 1970 mustang coupe my brother picked up awhile back for cheap. It was mostly rust free but had a few dents,needed paint,interior,tranny leaked, engine knocked and needed a new hood. So far we have it stripped down and the body is all strightened out. We are rebuilding the old 302 ourself with some good parts in it [;)] The C4 tranny is being gone through at a repair shop. ill keep you updated as it should look pretty sweet when its done.

Didnt snap a actual pic when we first got it but it looked alot like this,ugly gold..It will be grabber blue with clear coat when its done.

Don't even get me started.. LOL! I could top off most the guys on here with toys.. LOL! Well, used to be able to.. We used to have sleds, bikes, quads, sports cars, other kinds of cars, vans, rc jets, rc cars, and a vaccum cleaner.. LOL!

Yea.. That's gonna be sick. You should put a blower on that engine.
