    Still here...still loving the Cobra. Not sure why the picture sucks, but I am here. Nice hearing from you. Wondering myself who else is here.

    Hey guys! I'm doing okay. I had to close PSP down in 2008, and have been working for Goodyear since then. I had to sell my 427 Cobra in 2009 to help pay off bills from the business closing. I picked up a 2007 GT500 last year, and I still have the 78 Mach1. I am planning on getting back to work on the Mach, which is why I'm visiting the old MII stomping grounds :).

    Good to see some of the old timers. Things sure have changed though. It's even harder nowadays to find the parts I need for the 78.

    Sorry to hear about your rough spell. Glad to hear things are looking better for you. It's been pretty slow around here. Most have moved over to the Mustangii.net site and that site is very active presently. Some parts are easier to find but other stuff is getting worse. That's the problem with have a "unpopular" car I guess. ;)

    I'm still here, mostly post in "The Squeaky Wheel" now.

    I stepped down as a moderator at Allfordmustangs.com last year, got perma-banned there for saying "sammiches" too many times this year (no joke, couldn't make it up if I tried!), but I'm still active here, on MustangII.net, and blueovalfun.net (I post as "ElSuperPinto" there).

    Since I sold The Riddler I haven't been on any II site much. Trying to get my house in order and maybe have a decent car by next summer. Things sure did change over the last year

    Look in once in a while...almost started looking again, then saw what was available and the OMG prices for beaters...guess the II days are all in the past now. Trying to figure out what to do with the leftovers.

    I still post over in "The Squeaky Wheel" forum here on Stangnet pretty often, but that's about it. Just not much traffic in the II forum here anymore. I still post over on MustangII.net though.

    I think the II forums on the larger Mustang sites have all died off for the same reason. Eventually the moderator that is passionate about the cars and leads that particular forum steps down, and the place becomes a ghost town soon after. It happened at Allfordmustangs.com when I stepped down over there, and it seems to have happened here too.

    But I'm very active with my current II (well, one of my current IIs, the other is for sale, stalled-out project), I drive it at least once a week, I take it to the meetings and on the tours of the local antique car club I've joined, and I'm slowly but surely making this former drag car more street friendly and just enjoying the hell out of it. I've found a great club that doesn't shun oddball cars, but embraces them (we've got Edsels, AMCs, my II, a VW Karmman-Ghia, and a few others, as well as your typical Mustangs, Fairlanes, etc.).

    Here's a pic of my '75 II next to our club treasurer's '65. He's the one storing my '76 for me that I'm trying to sell.

    I still show up every now and again. I'm still changing my Cobra II with little tweaks here and there. I bought a CBII go-kart from Brian (Project 77) a few years ago that I am working on for the little girl. I built a new chassis for the body. Just need to get rid of the old chassis as it take up too much room.

    I'm still floating around time to time, I still have my King, and finally getting it ready for paint and a 5 speed. Hope to have it all done by next spring;)
