What things on a classic Mustang make you go, "uh oh". when you see someone else's car or one that's for sale? Some things are indicators that the owner just doesn't know or doesn't care.

Here are a few of mine as an example:

  • Fram oil filter
  • That ugly Stant radiator cap with the lever on it
  • Unpainted pinch welds on a light colored car

When the body shop owner wears designer Gucci shades and flip fops says "i'll make the car in perfect condition"

without a high end booth, just some corner with a thick plastic curtain

There was a red flag in my face but was too excited to get this car painted
Soo many corners were cut. Lost money, time and trust.

Time to do it all over again

Street sign floor pans.
V8 engine, four lug wheels.
New floor pans laid in place but not fastened to the car in any fashion. (A local car, I swear.)
Caliper hoses pretzeled because someone flipped the caliper the last brake job and didn't notice.
Shackles!
Air shocks!
Snow tires!
