I sold my Mustang "Lexy" as you all know and it is now living happily Up Norf with Garbaldy's mate John sooooo............................................

22780297_1916559255337773_11713690225051

What to Do? What to Do?

I must admit I always thought Lexy was a little too flash for Autoshite I was embarased that every panel matched and the only AS points i had was a missing centre cap.

I know Ill buy another Mustang but this time ill do it right!

The seat belts are ripped and locked in position so he has a good spare set with the car as well as a glove box lid but they are the wrong colour! Does it get better than that?

Yes, in case the current paint, or lack thereof, is worth preserving, which flat black isn't, no matter how you look at it.

They did practically the same pattern but it wasnt buttoned and you could get a similar cour vinyl on the GXL if memorys serves correct ?

Fan-friggin'-tastic!

Glad you went for it in the end! It looks a bloody solid car tbh, I reckon you'll have it on the road in no time.

Keep us posted how you get on. I remember when I brought mine over, I was checking up on its progress constantly. I even managed to find out which ship it was on for the trip over from New York (the MSC Dymphna!) and I was tracking the ships progress live online!

Top work Jo.

Well, for starters she was alive when that picture was taken - these days she's errr, well, she's not as fit as she used to be - presumably Herr von TEH Junkman prefers his women slightly more lively than Farrah is these days.

I agree I will probably get that rear quarter sorted and flat black it again for a while just to tide me over,car has been painted twice due to the Cali Sun destroying the paint :(

It was Factory Silver but Silver is boring so dont car for Original paint,then it was Blue I will probably end up doing it Blue again but want a cheap paintjob maybe even Rutsoleum Roller Job?

I mean I cant make it any worse ;)
