    Just learned about this forum from Kelly_H on Saturday. My mustang was my first car that I restored with my dad in 1988 and 1989. After high school the car sat in storage for about 10 years...got it out of storage after I was in a fender bender with my daily. While I couldn't get it running quick enough to fill the immediate need, working on it has become my passion. My wife says my car is my therapy.

    1966 C-code. Original c4 car. Did a T5z swap with a hydraulic clutch. Engine was rebuilt in 1989. Two years ago I installed a new top end including AFR 165's and CompCams XE268H. Few months ago replaced my stealth intake and Edelbrock carb with an RPM Air Gap and Holley XP 600. Running 3.80 Trac-Lock

    Looks like a nice car and welcome to the Fix!

    If I'm seeing an old "Mason jar" master cylinder (tough to be certain in that one pic) I certainly know what you next project/upgrade needs to be. ;)

    Actually, already replaced. Did that this summer when replacing front calipers and pads. Good eye!

    Looking at your signature reminds me of a recent project on my car. First let me say that I do not understand electrical and don't seem to be able to grasp any concepts.

    When installing a new stereo receiver in my glove box, I was looking for a hot wire to connect to the radio. There was a random wire just hanging there...hooked to nothing. Sure enough, it was hot. Served my need, but looking back, that thing must have been hanging loose for a minimum of 29 years.

    Ha! You don't know how close you were to having a fire for these last 29 years!

    Definitely...we just did a Hill Country Cruise this last Saturday. Had about 15 cars. I know at least a couple on the drive are members here. Where are you located?
