My Dads Mustang

My dad was given his first car back in 1971. He restored in over the course of 6 years and the picture on top is him the day it was finished. In the 80's and 90's the condition of the car rotted away and it was eventually put on blocks. throughout my entire childhood my dad told me how he wanted to one day bring it back to its original glory and to see it shine again. 2 Years ago I got my first major job and I bought it from him. It took us both 2 years total to put it together. the bottom picture is of the same car 36 years later and me sitting in the drivers seat.... We are both 23 in the photos. I'm going to keep my dads first car forever and hopefully pass it onto my kids.

you are aware you ruined that car right? provided the car in the first image is correct, you changed the nose, removed the spoiler, and got rid of the albeit pointless side scoops. god only knows what else you changed. any and probably every shelby fan who sees this is hoping you die. you did a good job restoring fixing it, but its still ruined

dude being someone that actually owns a real Shelby (the one in this picture) I can assure you that my dads first car wasn't a real Shelby. it was originally a Silver Frost GT car that my dad heavily modified. What we did was bring it back to its original condition. Please do a bit more research before telling me I ruined my car.

My dad just restored our 1968 Impala. We've only had it for a few years, but it's still a bitchin' car.

That love.

It's a great car with a great story. I wish you all the best.

My first car the day I got her. She's had to get a fair bit of work done, but holy hell is she fun to drive.

I've got a '63 Ford Galaxie I'm building myself. It was pretty ugly when I got it a year ago, but it's getting better slowly. Just got it back from the shop yesterday after getting some pretty major frame repair, hopefully I'll have it registered within a month

Because it is a Mustang, I'm afraid I must ask;
how much horsepower does it have?

Dude, it's ****** beautiful.

I love seeing restorations, and espcially fellow FJ'rs that are into cars. My dad and I are working on our 1972 VW van during times when I'm home from school. It will some day look like this again, but it will probably take a while.

As an European, it's quite rare to see a muscle car and in good condition. My dream is to drive Mustang Mach II, that'd be great.

I find that strangely common.

Germans and Japanese too.

When I lived in los angeles, a lot of people I met who had moved from germany or japan wanted classic american cars.

If you're an anon, you see "We are both 23 in the photos. I'm going to keep my dads first car forever and hopefully **** it onto my kids."

I presume it says pa­ss, read it as "hopefully fu­ck it onto my kids".

..Good job ad­min..
