Random thought for the day

I’ve always stated that I have owned 2 Mustangs, an early ‘65 poppy red coupe in high school (74-77) that came with a 6 cylinder and my current vintage burgundy early ‘65 fastback. For some reason it has slipped my mind that I also owned, albeit briefly, a 65 K-code coupe back in late ‘74 that I cannibalized to turn the poppy red coupe into a pseudo K-code. So, I have owned THREE classic Mustangs! I had a couple of Dos Equis Ambars and sirloin tips for dinner tonight, too, in case I haven’t rambled enough....

Get off my back, get out of my pocket....

1965 2+2 painted (66) Vintage Burgundy, 1998 roller 5.0 with GT40P heads, plans are for Sniper, T5 and 3:55 rear.

I have owned three 66 coupes (Tahoe Turquoise, Springtime Yellow, Emberglo) all of which are still on the road, a Raven Black with red interior 65 coupe that I parted out and a Lime Gold with black 69 coupe that I parted out...they both were too far gone but they sacrificed their useable parts so other Mustangs could live on...

I also have held onto a hoopty 1986 rust colored, and just plain rusty, long bed, 6 cylinder F150 that I love more than sanity should allow. I also owned a ‘78 Ford Futura back in the day. Not trying to get into the upper level of Ford heaven, but that should at least get me in the gate...

I find myself in a similar situation actually. I've been saying that my '69 Grande is my first Mustang, but its actually my second. Many, many years ago I had a '68 fastback GT 390, but it was in really bad shape, it would have taken years to put back on the road, and it was hard to decide where to start really - the list of parts I was going to need was virtually unending...... particularity as the only part I actually had, was the emblem off the grill.
