Went for a lttle ride in the Coupe, stopped at a local wrecker to check on some parts. When I came out and tried to start it, it just went thud. I was on a hill, so i decided to bump start it, it just skidded the tires.
I had to call a tow truck and get towed the 2 miles home! I'm hoping the starter is just stuck on the flywheel. I had to go to work before I could check it out. I'm having visions of water filled cylinders locking
up the rotating assembly, I'm sure it's just the starter?

Been towed many times, cheaper than an engine!

When in High School I took a girl I didn't know real well to the prom in my '66 coupe. When we left the prom to go to a party my head lights started blinking off and on, I pulled over and started checkin wires in my Tux. I was the headlight switch and there was nothing I could do about it at the time, so we drove to the party with flashing lights. Boy, was I embarrased.

Years later when I bought my '66 conv. I took my then future wife for a test drive after introducing her to Mustangs for the first time. Since none of the electical worked, except engine, we just went a short ways down the country road from my parents house. It ran out of gas about an 1/8 of a mile from the house. She pushed the Mustang so well and didn't bitch about it once, I had to marry her.
