Introduction:

Hello, all. I have been lurkiing around for awhile , reading and searching . I have found this site to be very informative, thanks to all of you.
I am presently buillding a 68 Mustang Fastback ( this can be seen at www.longbros.com/richjr ).
This is my very first major car project. I've done the typcal motorswaps and bolt ons all my life, but never anything like this!!
I am looking forward to taking part in some of these discussions.

Welcome Rich, looks like your on a great start! You started out with a fairly nice project. How much longer do you plan on till it's on the road, and what's gonna be the heart of this beast?

I'm hoping-shooting for late spring early summer 2004.
I have a 400 horse ( dynoed) 390 and a toploader for her.
3:50 9'' finishes the drive train. I've owned the car for 5 years and have yet to drive it!!!
