Give me 50's-60's-70's cars any day. Don't like the aggressive lines and looks on modern supercars.

What's happening with the bottom one? Spares or repair?

You are a brave man if it's repair.

Is there a website where I can view your progress if it is?

It is for repair, all new panels and floor, new full interior and drivetrain rebuild.

I will be starting a thread on a Mustang site, not just yet though as there are another three Mustangs that I'm working on at the moment.

That last one looks mean! Like it a lot. Would be cool to leave this rusty patina (or most of it) and dents and make it rat style...

It has too much Rot to be a Rat :D

Not structurally sound to use on the road and it would never pass an MoT.
