Hello FORD6,
I am a new member from California. 'Ive owned my 1966 200 inline 6 mustang coup now for 26 years. She was born in San Jose california in 1965. She is whom has made me mechanically confident after many close calls and near life threatening experiences.There was one time I drove her home 45 miles crossing two bridges even navigating her through the toll booth with no brakes. Happy She and myself are still around for future shenanigans. Though I'm Still a mechanical Novice I am here for guidance and Experience. I'm Finally starting to carve out time to get her back up to snuff to enjoy our time on the Road again.
