Haynes is celebrating its 50th birthday in a very unique and exciting way! This restoration will take a stock Mustang from "barn find" condition to "show car ready" in time for AAPEX/SEMA in 2011. "Project 50" is a DIY car enthusiasts' dream come to reality through the work of Haynes own employees who are DIY enthusiasts. These Haynes employees are the same people who do the teardowns, research, photograph and write Haynes repair manuals. Follow along with the restoration progress through the Live Mustang Cam during business hours or through the Video logs. Join Haynes in the celebration of 50 Years of Do-It-Yourself Automotive excellence with "Project 50"!

Impressive stuff here. The information and the aspect were just wonderful. I think that your viewpoint is deep, it’s just well thought out and truly incredible to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts so well. Good job!
