I just picked it up! It's a good read for sure. The editorial in MM years ago that was just dedicated to HCS featuring Bob teets cj hcs was good as well but the diversity of this one featuring ALL the special Mustangs certainly helps those unfamiliar with them come into fruition. That CJ cali is gorgeous too

That was an awesome article featured in MM, and the cover page was the best! ... if I were John, I would make that MM cover pic my avatar ...

Very nice!! I'm still waiting for MM to show up on the news stand here. It's always a little later in Canada.

Honestly....the entire issue was outstanding. Not only was the cover (and associated article) about a rare and beautiful GT/CS, but it had an entire article dedicated to special edition first generation Mustangs. There were a few in there that were new to me -- definitely a good read.

Additionally (and not to go off topic), the article regarding the stroked 390 was excellent. Not too many articles out there about the 390 engines. Looking forward to the follow-ups they promised.

Cheers,
Nate
