I have been trying to get my engine back for one of my 1970 Mustang convertibles for about 6 months now. The guy who was rebuilding it got put in jail for a drug charge and no telling when he is getting out. Supposedly a relative is going to get it out of the shop this weekend. But they have been telling me this for months.
I already paid a guy to redo the interior and put a new convertible top on it. I paid him upfront months ago but he wants the car running to do the work. So I haven’t delivered the vehicle to him yet.
I have thousands of dollars tied up in this car that is just sitting. I want to get this one finished and sell it to build my other two that are in my Dads backyard.
That will at least give me something to do.
I hope I get that engine back this weekend.
