Long time no post

Hi! Been a while since my last post here. Latest news; not much driving with my 67 Mustang or 69 Ranchero last months. The unit (35m2 garage) that I bought in a new business development was finished and delivered to me last September 2010. So I finally cancelled the rent of the old flowerstorage where I used to work on my cars and moved my stuff to this new place, only 2km from my home. And meanwhile I had a new 2-post carlift installed so I can work on my cars like a 'pro' (I wish I had all the knowledge!).
Regretfully I found out that the 69 Ranchero cannot go on the lift with the way the previous owner has designed the double exhaust, under the rear axle! This will be changed soon. And I will start removing the leafsprings, so that a specialized company can build me new ones with which I hope to raise the rear by 5cm. So I can savely load the truckbed with wood and other heavy stuff again!
And then I need to start some work on the 67 Mustang. The problem with the hot start + full tank needs to solved, maybe I will buy a new carb? And I need new tyres, and want to exchange the points with an electronic ignition.
