I felt the same way when I was 17 and joined the North Texas Mustang Club with my then rusty and dented ol horse. That was a few years before Al Gore had invented the internet. What Shawn says hits home. I subscribed to Mustang Monthly, got the club newsletter in the mail (actual paper, no pdfs), checked out Mustang and Ford books at the library and then still had to ask newbie questions once in a while. When I needed to know something, I'd have to POLITELY call 'Mister' Reynolds who was much older than me and president of the club to ask my "carefully worded" question, then of course 'thank' him for his time. It was a lot more embarrasing to ask newbie questions in person back then than anonymously on a web forum today. Believe me, as sorry as the search function is, you kids got it easy now. I would've 'killed' for a Mustang forum back then.
