My first "ride" in a Mustang (red, vert.) was on the Magic Skyway in Aug. "65. Thanks for reviving the memory, It was a week before my 18th  birthday.

Beautiful!  More pictures!  Please tell me you are gonna drive it!

No plans to drive the car except on and off a trailer--too much potential for disaster to have it on the road--like a rock hitting the factory original windshield!

A few more engine shots--

Post more pictures!  Also, that's wild about it coming with the '66-style spinner hubcaps.  That's a cool little detail.

Since you're located in MI, will you be in Columbus for the Grand National?

I'd love to see it. Great job!

Not planning on being there--wish I could make it.  The big roll out will most likely be next summer.  Thanks for asking.

Thanks Tony; I  appreciate the kind words.  The car will sit all winter and I'll have it around next summer.  At least that is the plan.  :)

Gary great car!  And I love the article.  Did keep a blog of the restoration?  I would love to see pictures of the build...
