    Why would you do the fastback conversion on a convertible? Just use a coupe.

    Thats true, but I wouldn't cut up a vert for a fastback swap. I'd rather have the vert, since there arent many of them around either.

    Well the search is still on I have been to 23 bone yards with no luck I saw a lot of half cars but nothing that could be saved. Was told of a yard in mass Tossi's mustang farm might give it a shot later this week.
