    I have a ‘65 convertible with a 200 ci 6-cylinder automatic for 30 years. Haven’t started it in several years but it’s been kept in a dry garage. Now, it turns over but doesn’t start. My guess is either no/poor spark or gas. I’ve changed everything related to spark. Here’s a video of what it...

    Does anyone know what the thread pitch and size on the two screws on a 1965 door striker are? I have the striker plates, but not the screws, and would rather save time and a little money by buying screws that fit instead of a whole new striker set.

    If I set a budget of about 20 to 30 thousand, instead of buying a newer mustang, what can I do to my Mustang? Can I restomod it to make it a daily driver? Can I change my i6 to a 302?

    Hello All, I am attempting to find some history on my car. I have owned it since mid high school (about 2010ish). I know Marti does history reports for cars after 1967, but I haven't for the life of me been able to find a way to trace the history of cars prior to that. My question is this: Does...
