My Mustang

This is a page to hold the current status of my 1968 Ford Mustang that I have. I'll try and keep a current project status and pictures of it's assembly/disassembly up here.

The shop that performed all the work done to the car is Christiana Muscle Cars, Inc.

They perform all kind of Muscle Car Restorations, specializing in Mustangs.  They are located in Wilmington, DE, not far away from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York.

Very very nice. I like to do the work on my car myself, but clearly the pros know what they are doing! Maybe I should consult them next-time and get better results.

You are very lucky to own and restore a 1968 Ford Mustang Coupe. I wonder the total cost of that restoration.

Man, I'd give anything for a Mustang. Especially a vintage one with a cool ride.

I would love to see your newly restored Mustang. May I just ask, how was it's condition when you decided to bring it on a restoration shop? Cause I've got a real old chevy pick up and I thought it would be classic if restore though I'm just worrying because it's in the worse condition possible I might be spending a lot on this. Do you have any tips for me to save more upon undergoing to a vehicle restoration myself? It would be appreciated.
