My Mustang

I was going thru some old articles and came across this one. I know it's not bike related by shows my other hobbie. This article was in the Mustang Times. I've put on several National Mustang Shows thru out the years. Hope y'all enjoy the article.

Nice article. I've owned four Mustangs over the years - 76 Mach I in college (4 spd), 85 5.0 GT (5 spd, last of the 4-barrells, I recall) when I got my first job, 88 5.0 GT (5 spd), and 98 4.6L GT (5 spd).

Then I was relocated to CT and bought an AWD 2003 Mitsubishi Evo 8 before my second winter in central CT. If Ford made a Mustang with AWD, would've bought that instead (but love the Evo).

My grandson who just turned 18 and is set to inherit my mustang one of these day, hopefully not anytime soon, asked for some history on the Mustang. I had forgotten about a lot of the pictures I have. Here's another one from a few years ago. I'm just one of the little guys at the track, but check out rear slick all wrinkled up.

I always liked the fox body mustangs. You know they are making a come back in popularity, at least down this way.

My mom had a blue '66. There is one exactly like it (with 0 miles on the odo) in the Smithsonian museum in DC, right in the lobby.

its a 64 - looks the same: http://americanhistory.si.edu/sites/...970b-800wi.png

Agreed, they're gorgeous and would make an awesome platform for a Mad Max Interceptor type build. Back in the mid 90s a friend had an '85 SVO... I lusted after that car.
