Happy 39th birthday to my mustang
#1
It's weird to think my car is 39 years old. I have owned it a majority of tha time. I wonder what it was like the day it rolled off the production line? Everything original, all clean. Oh well, it's been through a lot and has quite a few modifications. It still looks mostly original... but I know better. Wink

I'm drawn to the 71s for an extra reason, that being I was born in 71. It is really cool to own/drive a car that is the same age. We both have similar creaks and groans. Lol
