Hello world indeed!
Well i’m finally up and running with a blog i wanted to start quite some time ago. So here it is, somewhere where i can post all my thoughts, my updates, my photos, my impatience and of course the state of my dwindling back account.
Name is Cameron, I’m a 23 year old living in Sydney, Australia working in Publishing and i own a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback, which is being restored into an “Eleanor” from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicolas Cage.
Now i lay this down from the start, i suck at cars! i mean i know a bit, but i’m no mechanic. so ask me to point out the air conditioner and i’ll point to the ABS system (yeah laugh! it actually happened once) and yes i know 60’s mustang’s don’t have ABS, it was another car.
So you ask “how can you restore a classic like this when you don’t know anything? you’re mad, you’re a butcher” Well no, i do like the odd New York steak but..well you know what i mean.
My good friend John who restores Mustang’s in his spare time has taken on my old girl. He does the work and basically i pay the bills, hunt down parts, drool, annoy him for news and now post on my blog. I’ve had the car for about 2 years now, and although it’s been slow i’d say im half way there. I’m hoping to have it all done by the end of 2007.
So sit back and i hope you enjoy the ride.
