Vert looks good sir.

As far as “driving yet”, I’ve been driving the crap out of mine since about October. I’m probably another 2-3 weeks away from parking it for the summer. Aside from a handful of evenings when the breeze doesn’t feel like a muggy blast furnace, it’s just too dang hot.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

A couple weeks ago for National Mustang Day. We're fortunate that I can pretty much drive mine year round (as long as it isn't raining). Unfortunately, it doesn't do too well with morning carpool and 2 car seats so I have to pick the times I drive it. Summer is coming and the wife will be home with the kids, so it'll get driven to the office more.

I've had mine out (with the top down) about 5 or 6 times this year so far. I agree that great weather just has to be celebrated with a few top down runs.

One of this year's excursions was a birthday ride/present for one of my neighbors. We ended up doing a freeway on-ramp 2nd gear high speed run/demo (tops out at 70 mph in 2nd, not bad for a T10 4 speed). :-)

Daily driver, no. But I've had mine out starting in Feb, drove to a local car show:


Then in March I cheated and trailered up to NC but was spotted driving around Sevierville and Pigeon Forge for several days:


Even took a drive to English Mountian Raceway, and yes, I raced:

Your Mustang looks really nice!! Makes me feel grateful to have my own and having been able to take care of it. I am almost close to get it running too. Just need to install my rebuilt carburetor on it once I get it back from the shop on Saturday. Knowing that people like you are having fun driving your Mustangs around makes me excited to get mines up and in driving condition very soon!

@JSHarvey, I think he is talking about your nice coupe! But yes, reading and seeing others with their cars was definitely an incentive for me to get more done to mine to get it on the road.
