A Labor of Love, Mustang 1967: Part 2

Mustang 1967 Restoration Part 2: Dis-Assembly

Did you miss Part 1? No problem, catch up right here!

After Dave got the pole barn built, he was ready to start the Mustang 1967 restoration project.

The summer of 2005, he began the process of taking the car apart. Being the family man that he is, he tried and failed to get the kids involved. (Sorry, Dad! If I could go back in time I would choose to be of much more help!)

Despite the decades of sitting in storage, the car was overall in good condition. It had plenty of mouse droppings, but not a whole lot of rust. After the summer, though, Dave got busy again with Tosh’s Tops (the counter top business he had at the time. Now called Rush Creek Surfaces) He lost time and interest and left the old pony to sit in the barn.

Dave labeled all the parts and hardware and put them aside. He still frequented his barn on nights and weekends. Putzing around on his truck, fixing the go-carts that we continued breaking, and cleaning out a deer or two every year. Meanwhile, Andrea began to wonder if she would ever get to cruise into town for ice cream in her shiny pale yellow Mustang.
