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?
