Gawd I love big Ford cars.... All of 'em lol.

Dog, you are doing the hard work for sure and doing a nice job. Be proud!

Whats nice about the '71 - '73 as you all may know is Ford designed them to accept big blocks. Then we know what all happened with gas and pollution control...

Devildog, that is nice looking hood scoop. Can you help me by telling where did you got it? I have the original dimension Boss 429 scoop and it is too low for my combination. I would like to get a taller Boss 429 scoop for my '72 Mach 1.

Does your scoop attach to scoop with studs? There is one nice Boss 9 on e-bay but it has wide flanges for mounting it to hood. I would like to have similar without the flanges but with the studs. Thanks allready. I'll try attach a picture from my Mustang here tomorrow.

D, I'm always lurking around on here. Just don't have much to say.
I'm finally thru working 6-10's so maybe I'll have time to get mine back together. The motor plates are finished, just need to fab the frame mounts. The rack & pinion is also mounted. Need to cut the shock towers for those big a$$ A-Heads and fab the headers. Now that I have more time I think I'll go watch the BBF BASH DVD for some motivation :lol:

I don't get here much but here it goes. I started with one of these in the early eighties & still like 'em! My '71 coupe went a 10.09 on a well used 466 & if I get on my feet my 552" mill with heavily massaged BT's will be back in. New mill will dyno about 850-900 ponies, BIG roller. Nice to see there is still some people around that don't mind a knuckle busting on the shock towers :D

Here is something that i just did this morning.......had cut this open a long while back to work on rust in the cowl area.......this **** was a mess and i didnt even fix all of it....I am not waiting another 10 years to drive this thing again....you can still see some of the rust damage but you wont see any of this with the fenders on and buttoned up so i dont care....this sure as hell isnt a concours restoration.....cause I'm not into that.......if the car had been nicer to begin with I might have thought about.....to me it was a good choice to build up into what I want....I may even backhalf it later and put a new front end on it...who knows.........its a hot rod and it will be nice enuff for me to enjoy it................................................................................D

Cool, at least you can get her out there to help. I think I only got my wife to help out once with sanding. If she dares come out in the shop, the best I can do is get her to get me a beer. LOL!
