That's at Cruisin the Coast on Monday in Gulfport, MS. It's all this week. Monday was the only day I could go. Its a beautiful week for this. That person would have to write what kind of car he has on the form. So if he said say 66 Ford Mustang then that's all it would be. Unless he put 66 Ford Mustang pickup. I wish I would've looked at his card now.

and it appears to be a 6 shooter...... Not that a 6 shooter is bad, but the scoops are terrible...

I'm probably in a minority, but I wish Ford had built a Mustang wagon. I've always thought wagons were cool, now even more than back in the day. I'd take a Mustang wagon for a hauler any day. I know they had concepts out there and were thinking about it.

I think the Pinto Wagon won out.

The wagon concept, I believe, was being considered way back in the early years of the Mustang. Waaay before the Pinto came along.

Why are all Mustangs "GT's". And all 289's are "High Performance".

For the same reason that all 1969-70 fastbacks, are Mach 1's.

Someone was trying to place a '68 Mustang body on a 2000 Cougar chassis.
That is seriously ambitious!

Ambitious is not the word I would have come up with...

I would like to see the two recessed reflector quarters saved. They don't look as rusty as the rest of the stuff.

A perfect example of why you measure twice and cut once.
