Revive an Old Mustang

I like this guyís attitude. It doesnít need to be pretty, just bring it back and make it drivable for now.

That is Derek from Vicegrip Garage. Has a very dry sense of humor. I watch some of his stuff on the youtube. I really enjoy his funny dialog. He is a total family guy, wife and kids come along for some of his trips.

The older that I get the more I like the KISMIF approach to old cars. Keep it simple, make it fun.

A true redneck restoration. I watched the whole video and had the worst heartburn in recollection by the time it was over.

He did the same thing on a 66 Mustang and drove it 300 miles.

Yeah, I also called in a few unpleasant names along the way.

That Mustang was a parts car, at best.
Except for sentimental reasons, there are no financially responsible reasons to 'restore' that car.
I like the idea of having a vintage car, that I could daily drive. Something inexpensive and cool.
These 'can I make it run' videos help get folks interested in the car hobby. We need more young people interested in these old cars.
