My wife on the other hand bought it for me when we got married and it has been around ever since my son was born and used to play in it so for them I guess it has sentimental value.
Brother drove it make his Driving test, to the Proms, College, his job as a Lifegard, Roadtrips... etc.

When the family came along... it was deemed not to be a safe family car and the kids where never in it... my neice names cars and she named the Mustang "Lonely"

He owned it nearly 30 years... in 1980... we spent a total of 3k on it for the car and parts... no labor... new engine, motor, brakes, paint, Interior, etc...

It was stolen once and insurance paid out $6500 and brother got to keep the car... then sold it for $8,000 to New Zealand.

I tracked it down and sent e-mails to the new owners without any response... had some pictures and old invoices I thought they might like to have...

I would like to see it because I put a lot of work into it and it was the first Mustang I restored... I still have a 66 basket case and a 68 Convert that has been in a shed the last 25 years...

A good friend of ours tracked down a 57 Chevy 4 door 210 that he took his wife out on their first date. It was in sad shape but he restored it. I now has a home in their museum.

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 210
