This week we have been getting to grips with a major project to reassemble a gold coloured convertible. With most of these big projects it was started and left incomplete for a various reasons, then she was transported to the home of the Mustang, here at Mustang Maniac to finish it off. The web is full of some great how to projects, but more often than not they tend to leave out the problems you will encounter in one way or another. As a result the projects stalls and can be difficult to complete without the experienced know how or the correct tools. Then we get the inevitable phone call where we are asked help out with the now legendary build quality only we can provide to your project. We suspect that this will be the last big project rebuild for a little while until we have completed some of our own in-house projects that we must complete over the winter months to come.
The engine is the in-line six with one of our very own carbs fitted and she runs fine in her current condition, apart from some tuning that will be required.
The only downside is that with Yogi’s Midas touch to make things work and fit again, you can’t see it was already gold – or was it? 🙂
Not only do we have a gold convertible in, but we also get in a gold coupe at the same time in the same workshop. This car needs a little fettling to sort out some running issues and the geberous helping of the good ol’ Mustang Maniac TLC.
Under the hood – the bling factor matches the paint job!
We have had our delivery of the Limited Edition of the Mustang Maniac 2018 Calendar. These are a month view with day spaces to write down your important car show events. Thanks to Lance at Linards for the hard work to get this ready for us by the end of the year. We are going to be giving them away to the first 50 orders over £200 + Vat placed with us. We don’t expect these to be around for long, so if you are thinking of ordering some parts and / or vouchers do it sooner rather than later to grab your calendar. We have some pics of the calendar for you, but once they are gone – there will be no more for this year.
IF you ask nicely, Adam may even autograph one for you, Yogi may stamp his paw print for his elite, “Fan Club” and not forgetting Morgan’s signature that would complete the set.
Adam also says, as it’s getting near Christmas, we have had some more vouchers in to cater for that “What do I get a man with a Mustang?” The answer is Simple – Let them choose! If you ask Adam nicely he may even let you have a calendar with the Vouchers.
You can them from the WebShop here, or cut and past the link below to your browser:

While Adam was “working hard” at the SEMA show he decided to do the touristy type thing and boarded the High Roller, which is a 550-foot tall, Ferris wheel on the Las Vegas Strip. There are four cabins designated as the High Roller “Happy Hour” that have a bar and a bartender. Once inside, the free drinks start as soon as the doors close. Yes, you can drink all-you-can for the duration of the ride, which takes around thirty minutes. A savvy and quick drinker can get five drinks in during the thirty minute ride. We can neither confirm nor deny that the drinks estimation was consumed. The “last call” for drinks is when you are about three quarters of the way round. By that point it’s a case of “is the wheel moving” or is it you staggering around?
Have you ever wondered what Las Vegas looks like from the air in the middle of a desert?
We have had the go ahead for special world exclusive that we will bring you soon, possibly a dedicated post in it’s own right.
