Look what's in our garage!

Isn't she beautiful?  This girl has been in the shop for the last four years and has now come home to live in our garage, and we are thrilled!  She is a 1971 Ford Mustang, Mach 1 with a 429 Cobra Jet engine.  Yup, she's a beaut.  (:

Here is what she looked like when hubs first purchased her:

My husband purchased her just a few months before we met and quickly put her into the shop to begin the body repair/restoration.  She has been primed and is ready for a new paint job.  We haven't yet picked a paint color but are throwing around a few colors.

The shell of the vehicle:

After we (mostly he) restore the engine, then we'll refurbish the inside including all new flooring, seating, everything new and pretty, ahem I mean strong and manly.

That's after we find some money!  Lottery anyone?
