I don't get on the VMf often enough (house hunting) but I always check to see whats happening with the local folks. There's probably a few more "lurkers" out there like me, anyway, I'm Jon from Norton.

I was wondering why there's not much going on in here. I guess we don't have a whole lot to say. I promise I'll post an update here next time I get something done with my 5.0 swap!

Been on the Board for years and to be honest, this is the 1st time I've checked out the NE section. I'm located near Niagara Falls, NY and there is absolutely nothing going on in this area this time of year (and most other times of year for that matter). I have a 70 Mach 1 that's "in progress." It has been for quite some time. Fixed income (retired) doesn't work well with trying to fix up any Mustang. I'll be looking in more often.

I figure we'll try to go for a record.I'm usually a lurker but what the hey I'll chime in.I think part of the reason we're so quiet in here is that our location has the lowest number of members?It's just a thought but let's face it I don't see a ton of these cars on the road nowadays.Usually when I do it's at a cruise night or something and the person bought it that way or paid to have it done so they are enthusiasts but not quite to the level of most of the people on this website who take a more active role(hands on) in their cars.So I don't think they are looking to seek out other Mustang owners?Hopefully I won't get flogged for this reply.I've made a bunch of observations over the last 18 years while I've been working on and driving these cars.I think the whole demographic has changed dramatically because the values of the cars has gone up.In a sentence it seems to me like alot (not all by any means) of the classic Mustang owners that I meet these days just aren't that into the cars,They like them but they don't want to talk your ear off about them?Which is too bad.Maybe I'm wrong?
Lastly I won't be able to go to the swap meet this weekend but if the weather is decent I'm probably going to Englishtown on Sat.For the F.A.S.T. (Factory appearing stock tires) event.My friend is going to run his Fairlane in it.So I'll take the ride with him.

I'm a lurker for the most part but will join in when appropriate.

My car has been for sale for a while, it's time for a change as I want a new(er) drop-top. Unfortunately, it's not in one piece so that doesn't help.

The wife asked me what it would take to get it back together and running. I told her 4 solid days....that was 2 1/2 years ago and I've got -0- time into it. Kids, career, family, house, etc. all come first and I actually prefer it that way right now.

This was last winter's project at the mother-in-laws - only thing I didn't do was install the countertops:

That was just a warm-up to this winter's project(s) at my house as well as the continuation of renovations the mother-in-laws. This is what is going on right now at my house:

Projects projects projects...it seems as though the house ones trump the car ones. I'm in Northern NJ, does that make me the Southern part of the North East?

Nice Job... I remember some of those pics from when I first started lurking around VMF... I just finished my kitchen remodel a couple months ago. It set me back about 5-6 months on my project. Oh Well! Hopefully, the mustang will be ready for springtime driving...

I breifly met a few VMFrs at the MCA show over the summer. I take it that is not a regular event, but understand there is a yearly Mustang show in the central mass area. Are there other Mustang related events that you guys tend to go to? Hopefully next summer I'll be out with the car instead of being with it in the garage...

I think your right. This area of the country tends to be very high speed with very few people having the time or desire or space to work on there cars so less of the ones that own mustangs come here looking for advice.

Ya were kinda stuck in the middle of this one not really sure which foroum i am part of so i try to be part of both.

Ok, I'll jump in. Honestly for me, I live for the winter months in the Northeast when I can squirrel away in the garage and work on a project. I'm actually making pretty good progress on the 70 coupe so far and who knows, maybe it will hit the streets this spring.
