Just looked at my 16 year old step-daughters X-mas list. Item #1 69 Mustang fastback. The last few months she has been going to shows with me. Decided she would like to restore a Boss 9 after seeing one at the Unique Performance Fest LOL. Now she says she will settle for a 69 Fastback we can Resto-mod. This could be interesting. I think she has seen to many Overhaulin. Anyone in the Dallas area have a 69 fb for sale?

We have been talking about that. With everything else she is doing there is not much time to spare. I hate to discourge though. Worst that could happen is I have a new toy to play with. Since my 4 year old got a new swing set for MY birthday I think it might work out.

Kwazykat she not only " sees the value of delicious american muscle!!" but is admirering afew German and Spanish exchange students as well. Another reason to keep her busy. By shot gun do you mean a Boss 9?

Now for my next problem. She wants a 4 or 5 speed and is dying to learn to drive a standard trans. My choices for learner cars are my 63 K code Fairlane, still in original paint, a 66 GT 350 with a Paxton and a 69 scj coupe. Looks like she may learn to do a few doughnuts as well!

Larry I'm here to save you

1st have her do a research paper on the 1969 Mustangs.

There she will learn that the Fastback name was not used after 1968 and Sportsroof was the ID used after '68.

My son had to write a report for School in the 10th grade,I chose the 1968 Mustang,got an "A" and I still have that school report filed away in my 1968 research files

Oh and he drove a very nice 68 Hardtop to school in his Jr and Sr year.His Sr year he drove his 95 Coupe.HE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR

Larry....at least it's a car...when my daughter was 16 and started wearing "Designer" jeans etc....I got her working papers, and directions to the ACME super-market, and an application for a bagger.
That was 17 years ago...she's now the Floral Manager, and STILL with the ACME...

You could do what we did with our son.
He had a beater six cyl coupe as daily driver while spending his high school years rebuilding a 66 289 coupe with his dad.
First drive of the 66 was to his senior prom.

Get the daughter a beater, with manual tranny, to drive while working on a 69.

Larry,
You have done things right. You have your daughter interested in Classic Amrerican Muscle Cars! Beats the heck out of what the majority of kids are drooling over. Nothing wrong with that. Plus it would be a great Father/Daughter project! Go for it.

Thanks I have been very lucky. She wants to find a job, I think it would be a good thing, but her mama has vetoed it for now. Mama thinks it would take to much time from Dani's horse back riding. She rides a Palimeno that she trains herself. Last year she finished 11th in the world finals against professionally trained horses.

66hipo, She has a 95 cutlass 4 door as her beater. Witch makes it even more suprising she is asking for a Mustang for X-mas. I also let her drive my driver 65 fastback, uh I mean 2+2, rarly. Her 69 will be upgraded with many safty features that the 65 dosen't have.

Dave, Thanks I am looking foward to a Father/daughter project.

This is so cool. I sure wish my kids would have had intrest in the old school stuff. I guess my oldest boy may have intrest now, however, he's on the other side of the country.

I recently sold a 67' Coupe that I was going to build for my Wife. She decided that she wanted to get another rental property instead

I sold it to a guy my wife works with for his son that is soon to be driving. It's actualy going to be a motivational tool. His boy is not a bad kid, just bored in todays school systems and does just enough to get by.

After talking with him ( me to the dad ) I suggested that he get it and use build it as a Father / Son project. As the boy brings home his report card. He gets rewarded with parts to install on the Mustang. The better the grades, the better the parts.

I spoke to the boy as we sat down to agree on a price and told him that he was a very lucky kid. I wish my dad would have taken the time to do something like this with me.

I am very proud. Sadly there is alot of trainers around here not doing very well. She wishes to become a fictional writer and keep her horses as a hobby.

AKBOSSMAN, thanks for your concern. I learned to drive a standard in a 67 Ranchero with a 200cid. Not interested in trades at the moment. I will keep you in mind though.

Bulldog66, So far she has been a A/B student and not working very hard at it. My concerns are that she dosen't come home pregnant, infected or stoned. So far so good.

Larry
