a '65 in the highschool parking lot!

so I was dropping my daughter at school last week and I saw a '65 mustang in the student lot. I wanted to stop and get a picture, but the lot was full of kids, and no way I was going to whip out the phone and take pics lol. so today I was there in the afternoon, no kids in the lot and the car was there. looks to be a 289 / auto, decent condition. it has the 94-98 16" "waffle stars" on it, and I have to admit I really like them on the car. anyway, I can't remember the last time I saw a classic in any of the school parking lots around here. guess there's hope for at least one kid there

All is not lost ! ! Notice how he parked nearly in the weeds to keep his driver side far away from the next spot?
I don't have the picture on my phone now, but there's a NICE Nightmist Blue '67 coupe at my son's high school most days. He found out it's a 16 year-old girl's car ! Can you imagine his excitement and my enthusiasm?! He isn't old enough to drive his Emberglo '66 there yet...I told him we'll take a nice picture of him with his, put it on her wiper and invite her to meet up at the local Cruise-In...

Very cool. I’ve met a couple of high school kids at shows in the last year that daily drive their classic Mustangs. It still happens folks!

The anvil of reality.

Nice looking car! I had a 68 in high school but that was in 1980. Great car to have in high school especially 30 years later

My '65 GT coupe still has the parking permits in it too- almost 30years old now! Honestly- and unfortunately- it probably still has some of the same gas in it too!! lol

Working on old cars teaches us patience... and every curse word imaginable!

There's plenty of hope in today's youth. There are many young gear heads out there. I substitute teach at the high school down the road, where a gal drove a cherry 65 coupe for three years. The kids are constantly commenting on my 69. I was stunned when a 16 yo girl asked all kinds of questions about the make up of my car.
