Journey through the rebirth of my 66 RestoMod Mustang Pony GT from start to finish. I have learned much along the way and will share all that I can. I consider myself more of the "caretaker" of this RestoMod Mustang rather than its owner. Hopefully this site will give you many insights to consider rather than having to do much through trial and error as I have in building my '66 GT RestoMod Mustang.
Just A Daily Driver Aunty
When my Godmother first allowed me to take possession of my Godfather's willed Mustang (11 years after his passing), I figured I would just get it running and drive it as it was.
Restore It Son....
But then as I drove it around a bit, things started to fail (well it had been sitting for 11 years). So I decided to restore it. Figured I'd do much better on this one than I did on the one I had in high school. Back then I didn't have the means to do it right.
And after spending the time from 1999 to 2004 working to restore the car, I had an epiphany... why do I want a brand new old car I can't drive anywhere? So with that, I took it apart, AGAIN and the rest is, as they say... expensive history $$$$$

Funny how making one part turned into a full-time business...

soon to be shown at every car show I can afford to drive to
This site is dedicated to m uncle Bill, my Godfather and to all those who are into Classic Mustangs
I created this site so that I can basically show off my car with out being away from home at a boring car show (will do that soon enough).
I feel more like the caretaker rather than the owner. My uncle Bill, my Godfather bought this dream car of his in April of '66 and as a toddler, I can remember riding around in the back having the entire seat to roam around in (yep, no seat belt rule back then) of his new car. He absolutely loved his Mustang, and he drove it to work every day for nearly 22 years (which in southern Ca amounted to nearly One Million freeway miles). He suddenly passed away in 1988 and it was not until 1999 that my aunt, my Godmother could actually let the car go... it was such a part of my uncle, and so that is why no amount of money over the last 15 years has been a factor as this is the legacy of a great man... (although I can say he'd not be happy with the restomod part, he would appreciated the fabrication and customization and improvements along the way).
I hope you find the articles of value. Some things I am sharing, some things I had to figure out for myself. In any case, if you have questions about Mustangs, or need to know in more detail what I did or even have corrections or additions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
