Well, I'm a 15 year old male from Fort Worth, Texas, and I'm on my search for a '66 Mustang. I work at McDonald's, saving up some pennies here and there. I hope to have the Mustang by the end of the summer and the lowest price I could find for a '66 Mustang was 1k. And that was all in pieces and needed alot of work. And I don't know jack-shit about how to fix up cars. Though I would like to learn. I also found a 1966 Mustang for 1.5k, but it needs alot of paint work and cosmetic work. Plus some engine work. I wouldn't even know HOW to learn to fix the cars. I basically want a muscle car from 1960-1979. I hate the 80's cars, they'rejust too damn blocky.

I was wondering if you could give me some advice of what I should do. And your experiences with these kinds of things. I want to know how other people saved up money and found thier cars, who they had to talk to and how. I'm just looking for help. I hope you can help me.

Thanks alot,

Young dude, welcome to the world of hot cars and no money. Let me start by saying that if you're locking yourself into an early Mustang expect to spend big bucks for a car in decent shape. Buy the best car you can afford, complete, no rust, forget the drivetrain that's the easy part. Because early Stangs are in high demand it's going to be hard to find one you can do on a low budget.

If on the other hand you're open to others give me a realistic budget and a clue as to what other cars you like (at least munufacturer) and I'll be happy to opine and hopefully help you land your first killer deal. Tip of the day; think about cars you don't normally see around, low demand, lower prices, amazingly fun to cruise when you're done. Call it the "what the hell is that?" factor.
Thanks for the pic, jedimario.
