Selling My 1966 Mustang - ITS A JOURNEY

Okay this is my first blog on selling my mustang. I really really want to know what others experience in selling. If you like this blog email me, post or click on links and other blogs to show support. Don't miss the hemmings feed at the bottom of this page. And the video bar to the left should have something fun for you too!
WEll it started one day when the reality of the reduced pay hit us over the head. So we sold the 1985 corsica, (hallelujah)!!! NEXT, we decide to place an ad on craigslist and part with the 1966 mustang, bright yellow, chrome beauty, fairly rust free, 289 diff posi disassembled mustang! Tricky with it in the garage and no pictures.

I put an ad on craigslist....
Have you ever done that? Easy and Free. You know what they say? Ya get whatcha pay 4. A couple of calls later we are wondering what's up? We get the same question is this a "c" motor??? We will be there in 15 minutes. What's the deal? I mean this car is in pieces and is a PROJECT!!!!
Lightbulb moment! - Check yahoo answers to find information quickly about this "c" stuff. AND - maybe we set value wrong, afterall, we don't want to lose a gem taht we can't replace later.

Within minutes I had answers. One poster there said "learn all you can - its a journey," another referred me to hemmings.com and another to a group that has lots of members that own mustangs 1963.5- 1973.

I am really really sad to lose this PROJECT, reality wins. BUT - Oops we have a PROBLEM - HOUSTON!!! I'm falling in love with the PROJECT all over.

My original vision is returning. Driving around in the sleek sexy machine. Going on road trip with daughter to Washington to visit the family. Purring down route 66, tracing my roots. Recapturing the nostaligia of youth.

Reality bites, I am still listing it on craigslist
. Remembering the 1960's and particularly 1966 with Nancy Sinatra, go-go boots, hip-hugger skirts and white, wide belts. Beach Boy music and the Brady bunch (or were those 70's - its all a blur) . Listening to Beatles and jump rope. My friend's sister had 1965 mustang that we all envied because she was old enough to drive AND had a car. WE begged her to take us to school in that 'stang!

Life does goes full circle. Except the ugly polyester jumpsuits for guys , I hope they never come back.
When I touch the mustang it is like going back in time to happier carefree days.

Well in my journey it turns out yahoo answers is awesome, the guy on Y!answers was right - its a journey (click here to see life is a hiway video) ........ OR - is it?

Not my convertable mustang - but this is my dream (pubdom)

REDUCED the price... if you have been following my adventure in selling love and nostaligia then you can relate to my pain. We have now adjusted price, added pictures and bolted in the rear end. Now if I could get hubby to install engine...hmmmmmm

Almost losing the health insurance this week decided me that okay, we have to reduce the price... agony, start by a smitchy (well 250 is a little more than a smitchy) .

What has happened to all the buyers that called before? Where are the bargain hunters eager to talk you down in price? It done ! price adjusted on craigslist and I swear as God is my witness I WILL LIST it on Ebay before I let it go below the price in my mind (which is a little lower than listed on Craig's) !

Ford mustang rocks: Mama misses her Mustang!

Does this car look like it could replace the 1966 mustang we sold last year?
I am hoping to test drive this vehicle soon to see what the newer Stangs can do!

Outdoor light pictures - great for working on cars at night

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH MUSTANG CARS?    YOU HAVE TO KEEP THEM SAFE  AND if you want to work on your car well,  GREAT LIGHTS make night vision so much easier.
