Sorry, I missed it...been busy this last week on other projects...
As I'm somewhat of a newlywed, I'm probably the wrong person to give advice, but as a long-time car enthusiast who's had an on and off love affair with the Mustang, I'll say this....the car will always be there (if I don't sell it) when I decide to come back to it....Could I say the same thing about my wife? hmmm...part of the choice I made when signing on for married duty...
Most of the reason I'm selling my race car is that I want to do other things with my wife and selling the car will help give me the wherewithall to do them...
Normally, I ask for details but this is one time where discretion is the better part of valor...
We're thinking of you....
Thanks for the color tip...I'll remember it when painting the D-coder next time...I really like that color...
I know as little about restoration and its attendant details as I know much about mechanical and structural systems and their nuances...I've probably learned more about the details of a stock Pony in the year or so I've been here than I have in the 25 or so years fooling with Mustangs...most of mine have been modified...
One persons questions are anothers answers...or so it seems on a Sunday night..*G*
Hmmm, judging from your comments, I'm not sure whether to say I'm sorry, or congratulations *LOL*. SWMBO doesn't share my enthusiasm for Mustangs, but at least puts up with it, and it was her idea to buy another basket case to build for our son. Hope things work out to your liking.
What a bummer. I've had to sacrafice a couple of my toys in order to make peace in my house a few times. I hope things work out for you. Who knows? maybe she'll cool off and come back. Best of luck to ya'.
Every day is a holiday if you love your job.

Gotta side with your wife though (ex-wife?), family and financial security is more important than messing with Stangs. That's why I didn't get into this Stang thing till my 40's, and after 16 years of marriage. I am now in a position to swing the money part without affecting the family, but the time it takes still gets to them a little. I finished up the 66 last summer, and as much as I want to dive into another resto project, I realize I've got to wait for the 66 experience to fade into their memory before doing it all over.
Sorry to hear about the wife, good luck with whatever the future holds for you.
Don't know what to say.... My wife has been threatening to leave if I don't sell my bike. Doesn't like the harley thing all of a sudden. Gonna miss her cause the bike is staying. Anyway I hope things work out for you in what ever you decide to do.

I had to trade in my first wife. She did not like to ride in the stang simply because it was an old car. About a year ago, my second wife said that I should fix up the stang because she wanted to drive it for occasional outings. She said she did not care how much it cost, just to get it right.
Maybe you'll be fortunate enough to trade up as I did.
