No Mustangs

Lately I’ve been thinking about getting an old classic car of some kind for weekends and a few roadtrips only. Something fun, something that won’t ever be my primary transportation. I really like stuff from the 1950s-1960s era although I’ve never actually owned any kind of a fifties hotrod. Growing up around old muscle cars I have come to the realization that I will never be able to get my fascination with vintage autos out of my system.

Now isn’t the time to be buying another car, but I have been pondering what I might like to pick up. I’d also want to get something cool that Autumn would enjoy. It would be fun to have a burly hotrod to drive around with her on back roads when we spend time together during weekends. For some reason 1964-1966 Mustangs have been stuck in my mind as a potential candidate.

This past weekend Autumn and I were walking into the house from the garage and I popped the question to her. “Hey Aut, I was thinking about sometime in the future buying another classic old car for us to goof around in. What do you think of Mustangs? You like ’em?”

Autumn looked at me and flatly said, “No.”

Surprised, I asked why. What was it about them that she didn’t like? She didn’t really have an answer for me. I said, “Do you not like the way they look or something?” I got the feeling from her roundabout response that was it. She didn’t like the body style, but she just didn’t care for them in general. Hmmmm.

Well, I guess THAT idea is out the window.

  1. I say 1967 GT. Live out the Steve “Bullitt” McQueen fantasy.

  2. DPC- i spent over a year looking at 2005/2006 GTs but Ford was jerking me around so i switched back to what i knew, the 1960s shit. i’ll get to that whole mess soon enough.

    Ford really pissed me off, so i zeroed in on 1966 instead. after looking at about 100 coupes i picked one up just south of me in burlingame. it’s got a 300HP monster small block in it now. you can check out some pics of it in my deviant art page which is linked at the top right of my links section here. also some engine shots are in my scraps section @ devart.

    also if you’re an old car nut you can hit Oswald’s Cougar link also on the right hand side. that’s my 1968 XR-7 that Oswald is completely restoring. dig it.

    oh and this is just for you…
