I got back last week from a trip to Grand Canyon, decided to drive the Mustang and explore a tiny part of old Route 66 while I was there. I drove 1200 miles, mostly highway at speeds under 70mph. I get a little vibration above 70 plus I was trying to save a little on gas, it was $3.89 a gallon when I left CA and about $3.20 in AZ. My overall mileage for the trip was 17.7mpg, I have a 302 with Carter 4bbl, 4-speed SROD (0.70 4th gear) and 3.55 rear end. Cruising is about 2200-2300rpm, I get plenty of engine and wind noise then too. I also got lots of luv from other drivers on the roads and when I stopped for gas. Managed to do a little off-roading while searching for campsites in the Kaibab National Forest, all the sites in the National Park were already reserved so I saved a few bucks by utilizing our public lands. I drove down through the Prescott area to visit family before heading home on a nice mountain road, and then sat idling in 90+ heat a couple of times waiting for a single lane to be opened by the flagman. Car stayed cool, the electric fan kicked on a number of times as expected.
The first picture was sent to me by a former co-worker, I was leaving a rest stop near Needles as he was pulling in. I have since cleaned up the contact for the non-working backup light.
