Had to smile
#1
I was at a friend’s today and with the help of someone who specialized in assembling Factory Five vehicles his coupe is on the road. Still some things to do but it is nice.

The topics of Mustangs came up. I mentioned my ’71 and….. “Well that’s a little better than a Mustang II”

If our cars got the respect they deserve they’d be too expensive to enjoy.

Yeah we get no respect. I was talking with somebody and they made a remark about "big body and my motor NEEDING all that horsepower to push OVER 4000 lbs." Like we discussed in another thread I didn't walk away and shun him because his facts were way off. I simply and VERY CALM and nice, recited the 187.5" length and ask...so I bet you see the 67 as a MUCH smaller car right? He responds yeah that's when they were a lot smaller. I responded, yeah so less than 4" is a lot in your opinion? Probably is to most guys wives. Before he answered I said and what about the weight the 71 is right around 500 lbs heavier,...heck that is about the same as most people's wives!!! (got a snicker) And now lets add in the ride height my BIG BODY car is 1.4 inches SHORTER than my 67! So what is your opinion in how these cars got the BAD RAP from people with spec's like that??

He just looks at me with his jaw on the ground and said...."I've always heard....." Big Grin I smiled and said...somebody has been lying to you" "all I can say is who ever told you that probably tells his wife or girlfriend he's built like a 71 Mach I" thought the guy was gonna just crumble right there. He didn't know whether to laugh, cry, or whatever but the look on his face was priceless.dancebanana

Tommy that's a pretty car

Pintos and Vegas have gone way up in price for ones that aren't too rusty. I've been eyeing a Mustang II for a strip project. A clean one that I was trying to get for $1500 (all I thought it was worth) just sold for $3500. Buying my '71 saved money. I'm pretty cheapConfused but even if my Big Un would have cost more I'd have taken it before getting a II.

This made me smile yesterday. I finished work early got in the Mach want for a drive as I went past a sport ground about 8_10 little school kids raced over to the footpath and all gave a thumbs up in unison so funny.Then later a bloke stopped me on a pedestrian shared zone took a photo and another thumbs up. Price can only go up if the public love em. Its funny how its mostly car guys that chuck off at our cars
