Not everyone on here is smart enough to figure out what a smiley face at the end of a post like yours means unfortunately, for most of us it was obvious

I agree. I was on a car cruise and I was following 2 Lamborghini Gallardos, one of my favorite cars. The line of cars is stopped at a stop sign and we are next to a baseball field of kids playing little league. All of a sudden a bunch of them run to the fence and start yelling "Viper!" I was surprised because I thought with the 2 Lambos in front of me no one is going to pay attention to my car.

The car is one of the most beautiful ones I know of, esp in the blue and white paint scheme. Incredibly scary fast. But interior doesn't leave a little to be desired, it leaves a lot! If you are tall or broad shouldered it is very cramped. The a/c is one of the most useless things I have ever seen. The only one just as bad was on a eurospec Porsche 930 I used to have. Both are so inadequate it's a tossup to either run it or just roll the windows down. Not a daily driver IMHO, but I used to drive it 4 or 5 times a week.

Fleet, the seats look like they were never sat in.
Man what a difference from the crap being produced today.
By your mileage,I would guess you don't drive it very often.

Bob.

That's precisely why I don't have one... not refined enough for me to justify the expense of just having it as a toy.

My garage queen, an 89 LSC with a 325HP 5.0. Mileage just turned over 35,000 original one owner miles. The car has never seen the rain and still smells new inside.


My toy. 1966 Mustang fastback numbers correct 289 HIPO K code car. A 4 speed hooked to a 9" 3.50 T Lok axle. The car has the GT and Rally pack options. It has the Shelby options of 4 wheel disc brakes, stainless exhaust, tower brace, and headers. The interior sports a Pony interior with a Wonder Bar radio, tissue dispenser, and factory tach. The car grades out as Concours. I used to show it a lot but it got to not be a challenge to take a trophy home as the car is like new- literally.

I know, the seats look almost like new.
So nice to see big, comfortable seats like those. So much better than the narrow and stiff seats!

You're right; I don't drive it much at all. Bought with 89,000 miles in 2009 and it's almost at 91,000 now!

Here is an updated video showing the exterior and interior of my limousine. Also a quick look at the engine (near the end).

I plan to add captions which can be seen during the video once I figure out how to do it.

Love the mustang. A 66 fastback was my very first car but it only had a 6cyl. I did put in a 289 hipo in it with a 4 speed top loader though. I didn't realize you could get 4 wheel discs. Congrats on this one.
