we have made it the first 2000 miles of our crazy road trip. my pony running great for the first 1700 miles. then the sound of the motor changes, sounding very odd, thought it could be lifters...tried to accelerate from 40 mph and nothing happened, kinda revved and didn't move....very nervous at this point...punched gas and came out of it and limped into Holiday Inn in Van Buren , Arkansas. Filled up this morning and kept driving...must of been a bad tank of gas, she seems to be running fine now. Still 6000 miles to go before home, and I think I will be nervous until I'm back in my driveway!!! so now I'm in Mustang Oklahoma...went to that McDonalds...but they remodeled, all memorabilia gone!....did wash the girl at the Mustang Car Wash...car handles like poop in high winds and on uneven tar, but still I keep on truckin'....off to Uncle Red's tomorrow, where my new carpet and upholstery will be installed...just hope she keep running.... Only seen three classic Mustangs so far, Maryland 68 coupe - gold w/black vinyl passed me on 81, Tennessee 65/66 coupe - blue on 40 going east and in Nashville a red 65/66 convert .... hoping to see more than that!!! More stories when I get to Cali...

Awesome! I just made a short road trip (about 120 miles) without any noises... Good luck!

Remember, sometimes a pony only needs a little rest...

Wow cool car, I' ve found that there is little or nothing to do about waving in the wind, the old mustangs really are very areodynamic so the wind pushes pretty hard on them and if your steering hasen't been rebuilt. Forget about it. but edlbrock shocks really help with the uneven roads and the really rough roads as well. It's like riding on cloud 8, well because cloud 9 is reserved for those lucky few with a AC cobra.J/k. any way good luck, and in utah I see about 10, 64 1/2 - 69 mustangs in utah county on the roads every day. So there is quite a bit of classics down here.
thanks
chris

Sounds like fun. Will someone come tow me behind them so I can say I drove mine? My legs are getting tired, and this 1hp engine of mine is a real slacker.
