I personnaly have zero interest in a stock restored mustang. IMO, its only a Mustang. I think im around them too much to appreciate them. My neighbor has fastbacks sitting that i could get anytime i want because he knows if i build it, i will keep it and not try to flip it.My other friends dad has about 14 mustangs, including a few Shelbys, most of them are original GT500's.

Not that I dont appreciate a stock restored mustang, i just dont see the work that goes into replacing worn part with new parts.I like the fact a restomod done right is unlike any other, from paint/body mods to the drivetrain.Im sure theres always going to be another car like it somewhere in the world, but at least its not in the same 5 mile radius.

if i ever fully redo my car it will be a resto-mod but looks wise it'll be close to factory, maybe some visual here and there.

Awesome coupe. That's the way I like them. As much as true to original as possible.

Retaking the subject, I appreciate people like Hightower, tackling that big project of his, with a car that was (to me) pretty much destined to the scrapyard, and restomod it. At least he is bringing it back to life...even if it is with a Chevy engine (somebody please convince him not to!).

Thank you Jonk67. I'll get to it in a month! I hope that is my case. I'd hate to have to replace the cowl now.
