What did you do for your Mustang today?
« on: March 11, 2013, 01:43:11 PM »
What did you do for your Mustang today? This question was posed on VMF, with good reply and I thought it would make a great conversation piece here. So What did you do for your Mustang today?

I shampooed the foxtail,  polished the carpets and vacuumed the rocker covers. :grin: :grin: :grin:

I installed a blower! :grin:

Look at your car. Now back to mine. Now back to yours. Now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn't mine. But if you stopped buying dodgy cars and bought an 67, yours could be like mine. Look down. Back up. Where are you? ...You're on MOCA, reading the signature your signature could be like! Anything is possible when your car looks like my car...................

Added a bit of velcro to hold up the top of the windshield washer bag and planned a couple of jobs for the near future

Maybe not 4000 times, but enough...

That sure would be nice. But it has a padlock on it which is only a recent addition but it'll be staying.

Nice easy job - replaced the  incorrect, rattling shifter handle which was driving me crazy with the correct deluxe shifter handle.  Then took the coupe for a nice long early morning run along the northern beaches.  :smile01:  :smile01:  :smile01:

Went down stairs to the garage, stared at the car, threw out the rubbish, stared at the car, openned the bonnet, stared at the engine, checked the brake and clutch reservoirs, stared at the manifold and carb, closed the bonnet, stood there thinking about what to think about the car.  Walked upstairs, hmmm, can I go back down stairs without arousing suspicions....  Probably not.  Go onto MOCA forum instead.

I've done 85 in an 80 past one of those white vans.  12 months on, nothing in the mail   :bolt:

Just not sure if it was a double demerit points for the long weekend.
