Still searching for the actual project because I want a two door, but have collected two nice parts cars so far.

This is a one year only body style and the aftermarket really hasn't put effort into repopping most parts, so good parts cars are almost priceless.

Have almost two complete cars, just the green one is more car-like than the other...

Restored this a long time ago, but there's always something to tinker with. thinking about swapping the 4:10 gears out for something a little more highway friendly, maybe 3:73. Swapping the Super T-10 4speed for a Tremac 5 speed would work too. Pretty rough when I brought it home, first vehicle I ever owned

I just started on a '66 Mustang today for my mother. Completely rust free car from Lake Havasu, Arizona. I've never seen a rust-free Mustang before. Pictures later.....

1929 Chevrolet coupe.  had it since I was 13.  Was my uncles; my aunt sold it to me after he died.  I have a Buick 215 aluminum V8 to go in it, looking for a 200-4r trans, have a Ford 8" rear from a Maverick, all new SPeedway Motors front end (axle, spindles, brakes, steering, the whole 9 yards), Buick steering wheel (to go on the ididit column I want). 
My photos are the three at the bottom.  THIS (black & grey) is my inspiration...
