A little history

While I was in the Navy I was stationed in Groton, CT. I had wanted a 65 fastback since I was 16. I bought my car in New York. My wife and I drove 3 hours with a 4 month old daughter crying in the back seat. She hated to be in her car seat! We drove down, looked over the car and I just had to have it.

So I drove a 30 year old car 200 miles back. I drove my mustang as a daily driver for 10 years. The PO had done a "restoration" on it with a "new" paint job. Years down the line the rust from the East Coast salt finally started to show through. We now live on the West Coast. I was initially going to repair just the rust showing through, but every time I uncovered a little rust more areas showed through.

Over the last 5 years I have slowly torn down the car. It is currently a rolling shell. I took a bunch of pictures as I took it apart, but the hard drive the pictures were saved to crashed and I couldn't recover it. So I only have current pictures

The Adventure Begins

I am starting this blog to document the restoration of my 65 Fastback Mustang. I want to record its history and what I’ve done so far. I have read several mustang blogs on this site and it has inspired me to start on my own!
