GT/CS on cover of Mustang Times

I got my new issue of "Mustang Times" today, if you don't know, thats the official magazine of the Mustang Club of America. Gracing the cover is a beautiful sunlit gold California Special. It has a very nice write up, and pays respect to Paul Newitt as author of the GT/CS book/registry, and mentions our website. This is great, now all the members of the Mustang Club of America, will learn about our Special cars.

I would like to welcome any new vistors refered by "Mustang Times". Please enjoy our website, and check out our gallery of fine cars.

I was hoping the owner of that car is registered to this site.

I can’t believe all the recent GT/CS media exposure: Barrett-Jackson televised auction, the reference to GT/CS in the Green Hornet Article in Motor Trend Classic Magazine and now Mustang Times cover article. What’s next SAAC membership?

I wasn't going to say anything until the article actually came out - you never know what could happen. Honestly, I have not even seen it yet - as my Mustang Times has not yet arrived. So, other than what I sent them over the holiday break, I dont know what it looks like. The editor at MT, Mary Jean, is great to deal with, and it was fun working with her.

Many thanks to Paul N. who edited the article with me. I wanted it to be historically accurate, as it was going to be published for the Mustang Club of America. Hopefully the article will be a good spring board for Paul's new book on the GTCS/HCS coming out.

I also hope it makes the GTCS/HCS owners, and especially those on this site, proud of our rare Mustang. I did include a link to this site for others in MCA to experience what a great group of helpful people there are on this forum.

I would especially like to welcome any fellow MCA members that are coming to view the site for the first time.

Thanks, Casey MCA#54572

Nice looking cover Casey. See, I'm able to keep a secret.
Hopefully, my copy will get here in the next few days. I think it's great that our cars are finally getting their just rewards. I just hope the diecast model turns out this good.
