I do NOT like flames on cars. However, that car looks so badass. Very well done.
Personal question. Feel free to tell me to eff off. How much did you pay for that fastback in 1996?
You have no idea how many times I’ve heard from folks that hate flames, but don’t mind them on my car.:LOL:

I’m cool with it either way. I built it for myself and I like it. Plus, most of my hot rod buddies are into pre-64 cars, so I wanted some old school silliness so my “new” Mustang didn’t look out of place.

I paid $5,500 for it back in the day. Running and driving with its single pot drums, 2bbl and C4.

That's the thing though the OLD hot rods can look super cool with flames. Newer cars, not so much. Your car though, hell yes.

$5,500 running and driving... That's just crazy to me.
I was looking at fastbacks about two years ago when I bought my coupe. Let's just say it was a VERY short search.
You want HOW MUCH for that nasty old rusted shell that used to be a fastback?!!! .......
Wonder how much the coupes are?
$2800 for a 67 coupe WITH a 5.0 h.o. ,a t5 tranny, and all the glass and the seats and with no rust? Welp. Coupe it is...

Yeah, and Fastback prices started getting stoopid pretty soon after that acquisition. I figure the market doubled around 99/2000 and has only gone up from there. I’ve often thought about how lucky my timing was because I couldn’t afford to buy my car now.

I bought he car fall of 2014 for the wife to replace the 1967 she drove for 10 years that we had to sell because of "life". She never warmed up to it as a replacement so I had to do something with it.

All I've got is before and during pictures. My hope is to have it back on the road this year.
