1971 Convertible
My '71 vert. Originally grabber blue with a white top and white interior, the previous owner made what I happen to think was a brilliant decision and got it painted what is probably my all-time favorite Mustang paint color, the pale, buttery yellow which was so very sexy a couple of years previous but was not available as a stock paint option on ANY Ford vehicle in '71.

The engine is a base 302. The only significant change I've made (unless you consider cleaning off a lot of caked on greasy crud significant) is replacing the on-its-last-legs-leaking-gas-and-losing-air-in-all-the-wrong-places carburetor with a 600CFM Edelbrock Performer. My long term plans for this car are to remove the totally incorrect stick-on tribar fender emblems, put on the correct "Mustang" script ones, and continue to work on various incremental changes (fixing the broken bits of interior, installing disc brakes, replacing the CD player with a Retrosound radio in the correct bezel, putting in seat belts that aren't a horrible joke, etc).

This is the car I've wanted since I was 9 years old, and I plan to drive it from now until the day I die.
