Mystang — I couldn't stand a couple things on the car to begin with. One is the fake scoop on the rear quarters, so I had those replaced with '70 quarters(no fake scoops). The other was the sloppy steering. A Borgeson gearbox kit fixed it right up!

Classic Mustang — First car. Was bought my grandparents restored it twice. Last time setup for drag racing Had 415 hp and a 150hp nitrous shot. Sold to friend from highschool and he is driving as a pleasure vehicle. Love the looks but preferred the fast back may own fastback in the future.

Pros

My favorite year Mustang of all time.  I had one once when I was in college and will always think of it as the one that got away.  I sold it to buy my first Corvette (1970 Coupe) which seemed like a good idea at the time.  Would love to find another one someday.

Cons

I don't still have it.

1969 Mustang Mach I — Awesome styling & performance. One of the best examples of American muscle of all time. Small block Ford with plenty of power. Great handling car for its day. The '69 was the only year for this front grill treatment which always stands out in a crowd.

1969 Mustang Mach 1 — The best of the mustang classic design, excellent appearance, with a 351 w, that gave me all the torque i need, not the best handling, because still stock, the interior its beautiful because combine the look of the wood and chrome

The Mach 1 — Grew up with this car. It has claimed the top spot as my all time favourite car. Lots of power, and its got a really mean look. argueably the second greatest thing, next to a Slayer concert, to cross my sights.

Not Special Just Fun — It was my Dads car and it only has 23,500 on it. Lots of sentamental value, says enough. I inherited the car and have no plans on selling it. One day I will donate it a museum or give it back to Ford for thier museum.

The Fun Of Driving Somethink Thats Is Outside The Box — Being restored so it will be a long way off driving for know, but it is getting there slowly as funds are a bit on the short side I surpose you could say its more a hobby then any thing else
