Weekly Fun Question for 2-12-2011
OK folks here we go, remember this is my first shot at this so hopefully we will have no problems.

Good Day All:

The weekly Fun Question (WFQ) is designed to give "General" members the opportunity to test their knowledge on information (sometimes obscure ) relative to the '71 - '73 Mustangs. It also allows the same members the chance to "win" a nice #1 Icon when they are the first to provide the desired response. If a general member "wins" on three separate occasions, the member will have his/her membership (a $25.00 value) paid for a VIP subscription. Please note that when you respond to this post, your "answer" will not appear until the end of the current contest (usually at approximately 7:00 P.M. {CST}) the following Monday.

While VIP members can also "play" (for bragging rights), they must PM their responses to "rocketfoot" and "cobra3073." VIP members actually have their very own "contest" which has even more substantive awards , and if you are a VIP reading this question you are missing the VIP question!!!

Question: The Question this week is a two part question this week on 1971 and 1972 Mach 1’s

What was the only difference externally, other than the striping on the trunk panel, between the 1971 and 1972 Mach 1 Mustangs and Why?

Good Luck

The correct response is the pop open gas cap was deleted from the 1972 Mach 1 because of a fear of gas spillage in the event of a rear end collision.

The only difference externally in the '72 Mach 1 was the deletion of the gas cap 71-pop-only open in the Mach 1 Mustang twisted standard gas cap for '72 Mach 1s. Apparently, the gas caps were open pop- prone to spilling fuel in a rear impact, so Ford abandoned in all areas.

Only the 71 had the pop open gas cap. It was dropped in 72 because it leaked in rear end collisions.

The pop open gas cap was changed in 72.....because of the fuel that would spill out during a rear end collision.

Good Day All:

The results of the Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) are in.

To recap, the two-part WFQ for this week is:

What was the only difference externally, other than the striping on the trunk panel, between the 1971 and 1972 Mach 1 Mustangs and Why?


We had several members to respond with the correct answers; however, "thundertc64" was the first member to provide the correct response to BOTH questions.

The correct response is the pop open gas cap was deleted from the 1972 Mach 1 because of a fear of gas spillage in the event of a rear end collision.


Congratulations thundertc64. TNFASTBK will be making contact with you relative to the specifics on your "picture." Additionally, your Number 1 Icon will be updated.

Do the RIGHT thing.
