Something Funny At Car Show...

This last weekend, I had my 65 at a local car show (last show of the season). Towards the end of the day, I was standing by my car and noticed one of the guys that I work with walking towards me. He was with his wife and his mother-in-law. He pointed at my car and tells his wife, "My sergeant has a car just like this one here!" I then tell him, "Yes, especially since it is his." He then sees me and starts laughing while his wife looks at him with a puzzled look on her face. I asked him later at work just how many 65 Mustang Fastbacks painted Grabber Blue with a dual-quad 289 does he think exist here in Cochise County? We got a good laugh out of it.

I like it...might be one of the reasons I don't have overheating issues with the extra air hitting the radiator. Don't remember where I got it from, though.

Funny you mention that because it's pretty much the same thing I told him. He's actually one of the better folks I have on my shift.
