This was the first photo taken of my Mach 1, I had just driven 13 hours from Sacramento with a Uhaul trailer and had a Copperstate Mustang (my Mustang Club) event 3 hours later. August 2009.

13 hours :) Must have been quite the trip.

To get my 04 Mach I left Kingston at 3:00 A.M.....was in PA around 10:00 A.M. Loaded the car and was back on the road heading home. Got back to my driveway at 9:30 P.M. About 6:00 P.M I got to the point where I couldn't drive anymore, stopped at Buger King for some food and I was good to go LOL. Amazing how awake I was once I got home and unloaded the car. I think I was down town till midnight cruising around hahaha.

How did the 1st event go, were all your club members impressed? I purchased the 70 on a Thursday and on the Friday I headed to a All Weekend Car Show. Lots of people loved the car and people were very impressed with my purchase. Didn't end up winning anything though :) Oh well.....

Well there's still a stigma for the 71-73 Mach 1's. My club loves all Mustangs but they really don't give a lot of respect for the 71-73 Mustangs. When I had my 07 GT I liked it a lot and won about 4 Trophies. The first event I took my 07 to I was top 10 Best of Show out of about 200 cars.

My 72 Mach is still a little rough, with the paint faded and the interior needing some work. It really runs great though for a 94k original mile car. Ive sort of been waiting for the motor to cause a problem before starting the restoration, but it runs well, it has a little bit of rod knock when first starting but goes away in seconds, I understand this is a thing about the Cleveland. The car doesn't leak a drop of oil. It leaked really bad when I first got it but I replaced the front seal and the oil pan gasket and that solved those problems.

I think I'm just waiting until next summer to start doing restorations, in Arizona its 110 degrees almost all the time so that's when I usually send the cars into the shop to have anything extensive done.

Im also debating a color change on my 72 from Gold Glow to either Grabber Blue or Candy Apple red. Still not sure on this yet. Frankly its all just a money thing.

I bought my 04 Oxford White used in September 2006. Here it is at the dealers lot before I bought it. Notice the Praying Mantis next to the left rear wheel! I considered it a good luck omen!

In the second picture that is my 98 GT Convertible.

These pictures are pretty bad, but they are the earliest that I can find at this time. They go back to sometime in the first year of ownership(1972). I was not into taking pictures much then. The camera is probably a 110 instamatic. Also I am including a couple from my wedding day in 1974.

Good to hear that you saved it. Looked pretty good though.
