Hi guys.  Recent new member but I have been lurking for years.  I had a 65 fastback for 13 years but life and 3 kids forced it to go.  I have recently gotten back into the Mustang game to show my 8 and 13 year old boys how to work on cars.  Wanted something cheaper, lots of parts available, and road worthy from the jump.  I know this sight is for classics but, ended up with an 1982 GT.  It was the car I dreamed of in school as a 15 year old waiting for his license.

I know its not the traditional classic mustang but heck - it is 35 years old.

Have had a great summer replacing headliner, door hinges, shocks, brakes, tune up etc...  Have loved the time with my boys and especially my 8 year old who is completely bit by the car bug. 

I probably wont post much.  You guys will forget more than I ever know but will keep reading the sight. A lot of the knowledge shared is not dependent on the year mustang.

Anyway - thanks for having me.

Phil

Welcome to the forum.  Someone on the forum, a couple of years ago, reminded me that Fox Mustangs were quite old and many forum members have them.  Be sure to post the story as you progress.  While I still refuse to call them classics, Fox Mustangs are a very valuable part of the Mustang history, and will probably be called classics someday.  Until then, they are just plain fun!

Re: New member

Thanks guys.  It is a driver and I have no intentions restoring.  My boys will drive it when their old enough.

​After spending Sunday morning replacing struts and doing brakes, I told my 8 year old we would go for donuts as a reward.  He was in for a surprise when I drove to my work's big open parking lot on a Sunday and did a bunch of donuts.  LOL.  He loved it.

 I love that! My boys are men now but when they were small I would take them out in the country and do tire squealing turns in my '76 Monte Carlo. They called them " Duke Boys Turns". Good times. My oldest now drive a hot rodded 04 GT.

Nice ride Phil. I like the 4-eyed Mustangs, had an 85 that I sold when it wouldn't hold 3 car seats. Sounds familiar? 
Black with T-tops and a 5 speed. Fun little car. Bought mine used in 89 with 90k miles after some friends traded it in. It had less than 10k miles on a rebuilt motor when I got it. Drive it 7 years and another 120k hard miles before I sold it. That's the car I wish I still had!!
