65 to 69 Mustang guy!

All JOBS suck! Some pay better than others but they all have the same problem, they suck. Atreyu eay, from the never ending story?? The trick is to NOT get caught in a dead end low paying job. Always keep looking for a better and better job. The best time to look for a job is while you already have a job. For some reason people hiring look favorably on people who are already working. If you must know the impression you make with these people is very important to YOU. Rings in your eyebrow or lip or nose are frowned upon by the people with money looking to hire someone and you must appease their sense of whats right or wrong to get a better paying job. Clothes do make the man and so on and so what you must do to get what you really want or you will be nowhere with nothing to show for it. I grew up in the time of the hippies and flower children, long hair and beards didn't get good jobs even back then. Don't know of any classes outside of the big schools. HotRod U or something like that???? Go to, , and see what clubs are in your area.


Rat Rods Rule!

Right on man I got a 70 stang, I pretty much taught myself by just picking up a chiltons book, and working on my car. I whent threw a whole engine rebuilt, it took me a year now I putt a fuel injected 302 out of a new mustang in there. I painted the whole engine bay and putt a brand new suspension under it, you should see how big of a mess it was. My advice is start off easy dont do anything major just get a good repair manual and just start doing the basics and keep checking this site for help ill be here, any questions you got about stangs i can answer. Have fun man stangs are really fun to work on
