This Black 1966 Sprint 200 hardtop is owned by Aldo Rivas of Clovis, New Mexico and is our Attitude Of The Week for September 6th, 2009. Aldo writes, I own an all original 1966 Mustang Sprint 200 which I located on Craigslist in September 2006. The Mustang was originally purchased from Muriel Carlson of Seattle WA on March 3, 1966 from Westside Ford, Inc. Seattle WA. The Mustang was posted as a 1966 Mustang Coupe, I started to get more interested when I found out it had 87,000 documented miles, and being an all original Sprint 200. After talking with the owner I found out the Mustang was his fathers who he purchased from the original owner in 1972. I drove to Lake Stevens to have a look at the Mustang and was surprised to see it in such good condition for being original. Today I have 92,000 miles on it, I only take it out on nice days. Some cool things are I have the original owners manual, all receipts from 1972 to present and top ot off the radio works. The only work I have done is a major brake job and minor carburetor rebuild. The Mustang still has the original spare tire that I took to Les Schwab to get inspected and re-inflated. The tires and wheels were purchased from Les Schwab in 1993 when the Mustang had 80,695 miles, so that calculates to the car being driven about 706 miles a year since 1993. I plan on keeping the Mustang original, sure she has some bumps and scratches but that adds to its character. Now if I only bought the 1967 Shelby GT-350 I test drove in El Paso TX in 1986 for the asking price of $7000 OBO, my life would be complete.

I am really thrilled with the end result. It truly is a wonderful car, which looked after should live on forever."

Raven Black 1966 Mustang GT hardtop owned by Daniel De Bono from Australia. This beauty is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting November 18, 2012. Daniel tells us more, "This 1966 factory GT coupe just spent the last 36 years with it's previous owner in Greensboro, North Carolina. Frank (now 82 years old) was the second owner as he'd bought it from the original owner who ordered it as a customer order back in late November 1965. It was optioned out nicely with an A code engine, power steering, a banded windscreen, green glass, pony interior, Rally Pac, long console, rear speaker, and AM radio to complement all the GT extras. It arrived in Australia in January of this year with 68,336 original miles. It still has many original features including the trunk liner, spare white wall tire, jack and ratchet, all panels and interior are also original (except for the carpet and mats), All bolt on parts such as power steering pump, 4bbl carburetor, intake manifold and so on are original numbers matching as well. This beautiful example of American automotive design still has the buck tag attached and is accompanied by the original factory build sheet of which I found the last piece (Bottom left hand corner) stuck under the passengers seat just a few weeks ago."

It was built in San Jose, ordered in Los Angeles, under a special order with special paint WT3822. Mal writes: My Mustang was imported in to Australia from Los Angeles as a running car and I purchased it from an importer. I knew little about Mustangs and the hobby grew from there. The body and Paint have been refurbished and the color has been professionally matched to the original color in the trunk. Body was rust free fortunately. The Mustang was in very good original condition when purchased and I drove it home, I have done most of the mechanicals and put it all together my self, I also have the original owners manual and is a matching numbers car. But most of all, I love driving it. Spanish Gold shares the same paint code as Black Hills Gold used in January 1968 for the Color of the Month Mustang promotion. The Color of the Month promotion offered a special ordered color and sport options for each of the first 4 months of 1968. Black Hills Gold was offered in January for the New Years; Passionate Pink in February for Valentines day; Emerald Green in March for Saint Patrick's Day, and Eastertime Coral for April.

Black 1977 Mustang II Cobra II hatchback owned by Mike from Elgin, Illinois, This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 22, 2013. It has a 302ci V8 and an automatic transmission. Mike tells us, "I graduated from high school in 1977 and the only two cars that I wanted for my first new car was a Cobra II or a Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am (black and gold of course!). My Dad wouldn't sign a loan for either one (despite our family's fondness for Fords) but he did decide to sign a loan for me to get a 1978 Chevette! Later in life I did buy a triple-black 2000 Mustang GT convertible, which I enjoyed for a number of years. When I saw this Cobra II on ebay three years ago, I threw in a low-ball bid that didn't meet the seller's reserve. I told my wife that we didn't have to worry about getting the car since it didn't meet the auction's reserve, so off to Alaska we went for vacation. Lo and behold, I got an email congratulating me on being the winning bidder for that 1977 Cobra II! I had to tell my wife during our vacation that the car I wasn't supposed to get was now ours, and that I had to coordinate its purchase and pickup from Arkansas. Fortunately a friend of mine lived near the seller, paid for my Cobra II and had a car trailer to pick it up and deliver it to my house, so the car was waiting for me when I got home. Upon seeing the car my wife told me I needed to decide if I was going to keep the Mustang II or a 2000 Corvette that we owned at the time. One look at the Cobra II and a rush of emotions from high school came back and the Corvette was promptly sold a few weeks later. I found that this Cobra II was first sold in Texas and then driven to California where the previous owner bought it and brought it back to Illinois for restoration. I've been working on completing the restoration he had started, and this past winter I tore out the interior, restored all of the panels, replaced the dash (it had been cut apart to mount different radios over the years), and repaired various other items to get it back on the road for the car show season. I purchased a Marti Report and came to find out that it is a 1-of-1 Cobra II for
1977! Not surprising that it's fairly well loaded - except for A/C (Really? Not ordered for an all-black car sold in Texas?) and it had only an AM radio. It was built 12/76, so it's an early 'Motortown conversion Cobra II .' I'm always looking for info regarding the Motortown conversion process before Ford took the Cobra II package in-house; it's a special part of Cobra II history!"

was also featured in 'Street Fords Magazine' over here last month."
