I have a 1980 Merc Capri with a 351 windsor I had rebuilt from an 84 Grand Marquis. It has an edelbrock cam and flat top pistons. I want to get the matching edelbrock aluminum heads to go with my 4 barrel Edelbrock intake and carb setup. Then she'll really come alive. She is black with dark burgundy Cobra style stripes down the middle. I'm currently working on a 1947 Ford. So far I have put a 1992 TBird IRS in it and a crown vic front frame. The entire frame is blasted and primed. The 4.6 from the crown is sitting in it and looks really boss. The body is down to the shell and has been blasted and primed inside and out. I hand fabbed new rocker boxes for it and they are installed. Still lots of welding to do. Replaced the trunk floor. The rest of the floor was amazingly good. The outside sheet metal is good except for the rear fenders. Debating whether to fix them or replace.

He who has begun a good work in you will be faithful to complete it!

I also have a Boss 302 but it is a 1969 Cougar Eliminator (currently being restored). The pic is me cleaning the underside of it. My husband and I literally restored a 1965 Mustang Fastback, full restoration down to a bare shell. It is amazing that we worked side by side every weekend for 6 months on this car and managed to stay married. lol My other favorite is my 1969 Ford Cobra (not a mustang) w/ 428 SCJ. And our list goes on. You can check our rides on our site www.bosseliminator.com

Just a car crazy girl. Can't wait to replace this image with a smaller me.

We're off to a great start. I love hearing about your cars!!

Today, I'm going to talk about my 1970 Grabber Green Mustang Boss 302.

This is a great car! Right now it is at the tail end of a resto project. We have replaced the floor pans, and done a huge amount of work on the car. We are just waiting for the engine work to be done and we can get it back on the road!!

I love this car!! I will post pictures on my spark page for anyone interested in seeing it.

I can't wait to hear about more of your cars!!

Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

I had a new '69 Mach one, probably the best car I ever owned, O to have it back. I've never seen one like it, It was maroon with a maroon interior. All the others I've seen have black interiors. Great road car. Sold it, kids wouldn't fit.

OH My what memories that brings back! Sadly I never had a Mustang GT...but I did have a 1970 Mach 1 with the 351 Cleveland, 4 speed Hurst, etc and it was a joy. RIght now, I don't have any of my toys and I do miss them, but just this post made me want to remember? I had a 1971 Challenger R/T with 426 Hemi, but I sold it over 17 years ago...I got what it was worth then...but Oh BOY, what its worth now...is amazing...and I do miss it greatly! My brother in law now has my 1970 Charger R/T...and it is again being repainted...it has the 383 magnum but was in the Crazy Purple color...it was a beauty as well...All I have now...well...DON"T laugh..is my 1986 Ford F150 pickup! See what getting married does to some guys? LOL...thanks for this post though...it brings back such great memories! ENJOY that maiden voyage with your GT...that is and will be awesome!

Today I'm going to start off by talking about one of my cars.

I have a red 1968 Mustang GT Convertible. We purchased this car from a man in BC who bought the car for his wife. She really wanted a red convertible and so he bought it for her. She however did not like that it was a standard so she wouldn't drive it. So we snapped it up.

I love this car, it hasn't needed much work, just cleaning and detailing.

I can't wait for the warm weather so that I can put the top down and take it for the maiden spin of the year!
