That is/was a great looking ride....

Yep on the kamikaze juice...they put it in the steering wheels of them "fureen karz"....

The owners all overdose on it...Their teeth get to "bucking". Their fool eyes to "crossing".. They yell "BONZAI! HAI!"... and smash into the closest/nicest AMERICAN CAR they can reach!

See it here all the time. 4 out of 5 accidents are caused by them "fureen karz"...

That's a beauty. I've had two.

A 1967 Convertible I bought new and sold when I got orders to Vietnam.

And a 1966 Fastback I bought in 1989 as a present from retiring from the Air Force. I still have this one.

My friend down my block had a 67 convertible. Well, in reality, it was his mom's. He jacked up the rear end, put Chrry Bombs on, Cragar mas, etc. Wathcing her put put down the street looking between the stering whell and the dashboard was funny - we called her the "Mustang Momma in the Mean Green Machine". Now when my friend had it, we could put 9 in it if the girls were skinny (and they were) - three in the front, three in the tiny back seat, and three sitting up on the back where the top retracted. Everytime we hi a bump we would bust that glass rear window and we all pitched in some of our beer money to get new ones. But it was a fun ride, even in NYC

This is all that remains of my 76 black and gold 60th anniversary edition Trans Am. It was a 455 4 speed car. Bought it new right off the truck.

Great thread! Too bad about the little mustang coupe getting destroyed.

I have a 67 coupe with an in line 6 that I rebuilt over 30 years ago, when I was in Vo Tech school, right after High School.
Also own Two, 1973 Fast backs, one is a plane jane 302 powered car, and the other is a Q code, Mach 1, with a 351 Cobra Jet engine, and a 4 speed top loader.
Marriage, 3 kids and life, have got in the way of fixing those 2 cars up. They are both rust free, have around 100,000 miles on the clocks, and have been in the barn for many years. The green one has been there since 1983 and the Blue one since 1991.
Hope to retire in 2 years and make a point to fix at least one of them up

Just be cautious and don't put too much money into these as when it comes to selling them, and we all do sooner or later, young people don't care. My experience is vast.
Not bragging, just being upfront.

Now I don't have photos to post but i'm literally just back home from helping a friend bolt a Continental 7 cylinder radial engine into his 59 GMC truck. Going to be an awesome build. I will get photos when I can. BTW he prefabbed the mounts from measurements and it absolutely bolted right together.

My philosophy about old cars. Like old women, temperamental and hard to start plus always needing new parts.

The coupes handled better than the fastbacks ('65 thru '66) Just the extra bit of glass and steel roof sides on the rear of the fastback oddly made a difference. The coupe was more centered.
But that fastback was better looking.
Of all the neat collector cars I've owned, I never got my dream ride. A '66 Shelby Mustang. Which in reality was a K code solid lifter engine with a different carb and headers.
The prices are now stupid so I'm out. I'm trying to find a picture of my last '70 Boss 302. Those are neat cars indeed.

I had two B2's. The orange one had a pile of bondo so I moved it along. Then came the rust free SoCal car. I sold it to get into vintage Lotus Elans which can be considered a plus or a minus. The '69 and '70 B2's ride and corner very well. If I recall correctly, Mark Donahue was involved in the suspension design and testing. A '71 B2 was made but the car was not to my artistic taste.
