I kick myself every morning I get to my desk and see Jason's car and think ... I would've loved to have purchased that car ...
now realizing there is another Acapulco Blue to see next month I can now make it through the last few days of March

Paul,

I don't think Jason's first car was a 390. I think that one was a C code.

it was a C code (it is listed as a C code on the calendar). I have about 5 of those calendars all over the place. Has been nice seeing my former car.

Go big blue!! I wish it was still in as nice of shape as that picture. Due for a restoration but I just can't seem to settle down long enough to focus in so I drive it the way it is and it still turns heads. Nice seeing all the cars and nice seeing all the warm looking weather in the background of each one as well. Cabin fever setting in I guess.

Cabin Fever!!!!!!!! Suppose to reach some where in the 50's today. Looks like I'll be able to get some garage time finally. Spring cleaning just around the corner.

Jason - sorry, no disrespect intended (from the Saprano's). I didn't even pay attention to what the car "used to be"

Mike - forgot to mention that I really enjoyed looking at your car in the cold month of Jan. Back then, there was no hope of ever being able to drive my GT/CS because of the cold and winter conditions. You helped all of us through that!!!

Thanks Paul for the comments. I've driven one day so far this year. Our Mustang Club is doing a parade this weekend, so my son Matthew and I will participate in it.

BTW - I'm very tired, I just explained to my wife that I stayed up until midnight to catch this weeks episode of The Sopranos.

I hate to admit this but here it goes. My wife and I spent the last three months catching up on all the Saprano episodes so we could be ready for season 6. If you think about it, that is around 62 or so episodes times 1 hour per episode. Ouch!!! Long time in front of a TV. We got caught up and are now on the 1 per week viewing.

I have had a chance to put about 150 miles on my car so far this year. We have had some nice days here in Kansas City. I am fighting a power steering leak (again) and have vowed to either get it fixed this year or trash the whole thing and go with manual steering. The power steering pump is a brand new rebuild, painted the correct color, the whole thing. But lines still seem to leak. Frustrating!!!!

Back from a week of wheeling in Moab Utah where the weather was fairly decent and the weather has turned here as well. Over 50 today, if it stays up there I'm taking the car cover off and taking the CS to work one day this week.

Wish I could drive mine. I'm still waiting for my hood pins and tail light bezels to come back from being rechromed.
