    Default Newbie from SoCal

    Hello all, my name is Bobby and I'm new to the site and new to owning a classic. I've owned like 15 mustangs over the years, but the oldest one was an 86 T-Top until now. I bought a 1966 coupe with a 289 in it. I purchased it from a guy who lives down the street from me. It was an impulse buy and once I had it in my garage I realized it was kind of a turd. It was in a rear collision that had a bunch of ugly patch work done. No worries though, it actually added to the fun.

    well the reason why I'm here is because every time I searched for pics to get idea I found the cars I liked the most were pro-touring mustangs. I will post a build thread later. Right now I have to get to work. 😜

    Cool, I'm in Descanso. My tastes don't usually favor Fords but there has always been a desire to build a 66-67 Mustang. They can look pretty cool when you get big tire on all four corners. You won't have to look hard for reproduction parts either.

    Welcome!

    If you life in San Diego then you live in the region with the largest consistent turn out of CAM-T cars at the monthly SCCA autocross. And a lot of them are Mustangs! Even if you care is in pieces I'd swing by and check out a Sunday champ day at Qualcomm. Some of the cars and folks there might give you some inspiration.

    I've been an avid drag racer all my life and although I'm not building a road race car I enjoy and appreciate the cars.

    Thank You. Yes I live close to the Q. Have not been to the autocross races, but I plan on taking my kids to watch soon.

    Posted the build I started on. I'm not looking to road race the car, but I do want it to handle like a modern car.
