We missed last weeks post as we (OK me) was at a car show and was stuck getting out so things got delayed. Sorry. Anyway we have a rather unusual situation of having a a Mach1 times three with us.
Park & Pic
A first for us here, but it warrants the change from a single car taking the lead.
So which is the favourite year, the blue or green ’69s or the ’70? To tease you even more on the response the green ’69 and the yellow ’70 are both genuine Cobra Jets as well.
Let us know your favourite, we couldn’t possibly say, we love all Mustangs. 😉
We had some work to do on each corner of another car where the rear suspension needed to be replaced, the old shocks and springs were replaced with Drake performance and our standard stock four leaf springs.
The front springs and shocks were replaced.
The old brass brake lines were also replaced and with some of Yogi’s nickel line work to tidy things up.
The rears also had a new handbrake cables fitted and adjustment of the rear shoes.
A Spring clean in the Summer
Adam has had a move around at the workshops where Yogi is moving his bear cave to a bigger new improved version for more cars. We will upload the photo’s of it soon once it has been painted and fitted out.
That process of cleaning and clearing out uncovered Adam’s Snap-On tool box from thirty years ago. He moved it up to his Truck workshop and decided to give it a clean.
The box had tool in it so he decided to clean everything out and put it all back again. Apparently this is good for the soul to find out where some of his tools had gone.
Adam also put all his power tools on the toolbox and even ‘found’ a brand new (spare) 3/4″ drive impact gun which he thought he had lost. The rest of are lucky if we find that missing 10mm socket or in our case the 1/2″ socket!
Have you ever found a ‘right result’ (as Adam would say) when you cleaned out your tool box?
We often hear that the recently released Mustang Mach-E is not a Mustang as it’s electric. But, we have been sent a link to a real electric Mustang – The Cobra Jet 1400. Unlike the seven litre Cobra Jet monsters above this is Cobra Jet is all electric. In fact this is what the Mustang Mach-E should have been. Range? Who cares? As long as it gets past the 1/4 mile that’s all that matters. 😀
Employee of the Month?
Adam has a notice board now in the ‘Boys Club’, for reminders etc. but it’s being used for other things at the moment. We don’t know who put these notes on there or where they came from. Looks like it might be a little tit-for-tat in response to puttin’ Yogi’s car up for sale perhaps.
Congratulations Mark on being the Employee of the month, taken on the way back when the MM boys had a day out. Such a light weight!! 😀
Not sure what will appear on the board next – but we’re looking forward to it. 😉
Got to be the ’69 for me. Luv the employee of the month, a real asset right there. 🤣🤣
