    Yesterday i got my first car. Its a 1998 V6 Ford Mustang. Needs little body work and the car is a little ashy looking. Im really happy with my purchase. It has 126,000 miles and has been owned by one person since its birth back in 1998. Im excited for the potential i can see in Miranda. :grin::grin::grin: As of now my plans for her are to get some low, respray her, and get new rims and a front lip.

    Awesome, looks like a good start.
    Any end goals? Building the v6 or looking at doing a swap?

    No need to say sorry, pictures are good and since I can't read, that's all I get to do is look at pictures. Looks like you have a good foundation to start with. You paint is doing the same thing mine was lol. Do you have any time frame for when you will get it painted?

    Thank you. I'm a photographer so there will be a lot of pictures. I aim to get it painted in either January or February.

    Welcome! Too bad you are on the coast - I have two spare cowl covers (black piece under the wipers) and it looks like you could use one of them.
