Hello from IL

New to the site, liking what i see. Hmm introduction....

Recently bought a 94 mustang convertible, V6. Have owned a few mustangs starting when i turned 15. My brother wrapped his 68 coupe around a telephone poll and gave it to me. Started fixing it, cut rear quarter out, straigtening frame and rear sheetmetal, only to have my dad tell me he would rather me not drive the car that my brother almost killed himself in . So we found a 77 mustang II for $250 that didn't run. Only took 5 min to switch the solenoid wires around that the owner put on backwards and drove it home. Eventually siezed the motor up (I was young and dumb). Then moved on to a 79 that i picked up for $50 with no motor or trans, Built a mild 302/auto (again blew it up, still young and dumb) Rebuilt again with more power, and because of life had to sell. Went through a few stangless year until i bought my current car. loving in so far Picked it up for $2000. 56k miles on rebuilt motor(148k on odo). Put a spoiler on it, got new headlights for it, gotta fix up the door where it was backed into and a list of "wants" about a mile long.
I'm a DIY'er and as cheap as they get. Prefer to make what i can and do everything myself. And still looking for my dream, 69 Fastback.

Thats a big wall of text. Looking forward to posting pics and looking around more.
