What "odd" things has your car been called?
#1
What odd things have others called your car, or maybe mistaken it for a different car?

I have had several people over the years ask if it was a Camaro, or a Challenger.

I once had a young girl who worked for me that claimed she absolutely LOVED old classic Mustangs!
I pointed out the window at my car (the only car in the lot!) and she said "Where?"

Kind of confused I said "Right there..."

She says "That big 'ol station wagon? No, I like the classics, like the '87 LX 5.0s!"

She was cute, and would have made a nice "seat cover" but far too stupid. My heart sank...

I have never had anyone mistaken the type of car, but the year.
I have had people ask its a sixty what?? As soon as i say 72', I get the dumb look and they ask, " I thought the 70's were the small Mustangs, and they walk away.

Yeah. I get a lot of "what year" but not a lot of "What kind of car is that."

I have had a rare 'nice camero' but mostly it's a mix up in the year.

My 82 Jeep Cherokee confuses people more. Lots of folks think it is an 'International'.

Not really a direct name, but when my car sat in storage in my fathers barn for many years he told me "you should trade that car for a brush pile and then burn the brush pile". He was just kidding me though.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.
