Thanks Laurie for getting Jim’s response to all this. As you well know, Jim hates to get involved with these things on the internet. No matter what he says, there will be some mental Mustang midget know-it-all out there who types 60 words a minute to dispute it with BS, innuendos, and hearsay.

It’s ashamed that someone with Jim’s historical knowledge and years of research can’t share it with us on a more regular basis. I’ve got several of his books and have told him he needs to update them. His “Mustang GT/Mach 1 Guide “ was published in 1989 and his “Mustang Production Guide, Volume 2, 1967-73” in 1994. Over the last nearly 20 years there has been a wealth of information that has been discovered on early Mustangs.

We need to start a write-in campaign get him and Donald Farr to update some of their previous editions of early Mustang books. Judging by the prices they bring on e-bay and such, now would be a good time for an update.
