Hi Robert. Did you purchase the two front fenders because the ones on the Nomad you bought were damaged?

Be sure to post some pics once it's finished being restored!

Yes, they certainly don't make cars like they used to, quality-wise, though in many ways they are better these days too.

My dream car back in the 80's was a '69 or '70 Boss 429 Mustang. Somewhat tame specs by today's standards, it had a 429ci engine and the '69 put out 375 HP. It was a beast for its time. It also had very low production numbers, only 859 of them were made the first year and only 499 in 1970. Too rich for my blood back in 1985 and the same today.

I enjoy my current car, a 2005 Mazda 3s, but it's not a muscle car. If I win the lottery, I'd buy the upcoming 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, which will have over 700 HP and do 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds or better. Final specs won't be known until it is released.

Its hard to pick and file new sheet metal on vehicles. They are getting so thin you risk weakening the metal. Yes as it was said please post photos. Would like to see it through stages of restoration.
