Hello to everyone! In need of Mustang Medicine

Several years ago I was on the corral quite frequently. Actually bought my 87 roller from a post in the classifieds. Unfortunately a few years ago I suffered a spinal cord injury and I'm now very limited on what I can do myself. I was in the middle of doing a 3g alternator swap on my Fox when the injury occurred and it has been sitting waiting for me to finish the alternator ever since. One of the toughest things about this injury as time goes on is dealing with the mental aspect of it. Hoping to get my car going again and hopeful that it will provide some mental therapy & positive motivation!

Hang in there

Good to hear you are finally getting back to her. I know how life changing a spinal injury can be.
Even though we may be older and compromised doesn't mean the Pony won't be a thrill to ride.
Maybe you can meet up with some guys at the local club who would be willing to help you physically put the car together?
Just a thought. You don't have to do it all yourself. Hang in there.

Thanks for the encouraging words midnghtrdr! That would be great! Unfortunately because I'm unable to work, I don't have the $ to just drop it off at shop & have it fixed. Any advice you may be able to offer on how to find out if there is a local Mustang club? I'm located in Gainesville,FL.

I was wondering the same thing here in so Cal. I googled mustang club near my zip code and I was surprised how many clubs were around me.
