Mustang Monthly
#1
The new issue of Mustang Monthly has pictures of 30 reader's Mustangs, 29 of them are pre '71 and one Mustang II. Not one '71, '72, or '73.

I don't believe that I'll renew...

Mustang what ? ;-) At least our cars are and remain exclusive and relatively affordable :-) The best pictures are on this forum anyway :-) My biggest issue is finding ( missing/repro/original ) parts for my car because I guess.... it is so exclusive ;-) Anybody having a spare pair of inner fender splash shields for my 73 convertible by any chance?

Forward or rear? I would have to check and see what I have as spares.

Thanks for the response! I've sent you a PM.

Yeah not sure what the editor's problem is. Everywhere I take my car I get a lot of looks and compliments from everyone. Even the guys in my local mustang club are the same and I am only one of two 71-3's in the group but they all comment every show or meeting.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

He's a hater - has even said so, in print, while he was praising the Mustang II in his opening comments of his first article in MM a few years ago.

He's also a bit of a douche - especially since he came in here guns out telling us that our bloated Clydesdales will be even better represented since they've decided to focus on only everything older than the Fox-bodies. Ha! What he really meant is that now someone will finally give the Mustang IIs some love, and relegate the bloated Clydesdales back to the shadows... where we belong. Worse than a freaken politician.

I think I'm pretty much going to "not renew" this go around as well. If I hear that there are some actual '71-'73 articles to be had from month to month, then I'll find a copy and just buy it outright, I guess.

I got over the "hurt" 35+ years ago. I just went out and built the best '71-3 possible and then watched them heap praises... People are fickle...

We are in this for our satisfaction, if along the way it makes some other's happy, great. If not, they can just keep walking...

I intend to submit my completed restoration as a follow up to the story they did on it when it was a Barn Find. I feel more "hurt" coming...[/align]

I used to look forward to MM in my mailbox back in the 80's when I had my first car (65 Mustang coupe) but let my last subscription lapse a few months back. Looks like I haven't missed anything.

You know what's ironic, 45 years later, today's Mustangs are as heavy as ours. So.... are ours Clydesdales??m

I stopped buying magazines and newspapers years ago. We can now target our searches over the internet for what interests us, plus it's much more current information. Just as we visit this site. Everyone has their own preferences but the 71-73 Mustang has always been the cat's meow to me.
