Silver Smoke Gray 1965 Mustang convertible owned by Rob Eckenrode from Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week photo for the week starting November 1, 2009. Rob shares, "This vehicle was ordered by my wife's grandmother specifically to match the school color where they lived. It has the original dealer installed factory AC. It has recently been restored to original condition and won best of show in its first show this month. I have yet to find another 65 with this color combination and was told it is rare, but since Marty reports don's go back to 65 I do not know how many were made." |

Paul had this story to share, "I had just moved to Michigan from Texas. My Father (Doug) had been into car shows and got me interested. LOL when he said, 'I found you a Mustang, lets go look at it.' When we drove up he said, 'There it is.' I said, 'Where?' He said, 'There.' I saw the car and I said, 'No, that is not a Mustang. That is a POS! Where is the pony?' He said, 'On the front
and the back.' I looked and said, 'Oh, Mustang II.' It is all original."

Silver 1980 Mustang fastback owned by Scott Kelley from Hamilton, Ohio. It has the two-tone black over silver paint. Scott tells us, "I bought it from the estate of the original owner. It has a 200 inline 6 with an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and A/C that still works and has R12 Freon in it. I've only had it about two weeks. It's not perfect, but is a very nice survivor car. My plans are to clean it up and do some minor repairs and then resell it. It's a great running car and I'm
sure it will make someone very happy."

Check out this 1984 Mustang SVO hatchback owned by Aaron from Brush Prairie, Washington. It is painted Ferrari Silverstone. Aaron tells us more, "This SVO was sitting for 18 years and passed down to me at the age of 18. I did a complete restoration. It was given to me with
the V8 because the 2.3L Turbo had many problems. The rear end is rebuilt being a 8.8 inch with 3.73 gearing. The wheels are also stock."

1985 Mustang hatchback owned by Jody Leatherman from New Boston, Texas. Jody tells us more, "It was found in a pasture. I paid 50 bucks for her. I removed the 4 cylinder 4 speed and put in a 302 bored with long tube Blackjack headers dumped just in front of rear axle from 18 cherrybombs (it sounds good once throttle is pushed) and paired with a C4 automatic. The interior donated from a 89 GT, front bumper custom made using bumper for a 91. The only parts I ain't got to touch yet are rear quarter panels. The car was a father son project before he grew up and moved. Now its my weekend toy. Still trying to decide the final color scheme. Taking all ideas offered. I am currently looking at the Shadow Gray with flat black striping."

Dark Slate Metallic 1985 Mustang fastback owned by Wayne De Leeuw from Lancaster, California. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting February 23, 2014. Wayne shares, "The car was purchased new from Cal Worthington Ford. We have owned it ever since. As you can tell I am a stock nut and did a lot of research before deciding to restore her in full original configuration. I found out that only 29 hatchbacks where painted color code 4M in 1985 - add to that the limited production of 'T-roof' cars and I am certain this is a one of vehicle. Like Bonnie and Clyde thanked Ford for such an awesome vehicle, I will have to do the same. This vehicle has never left us dead anywhere. At times her gallop was not what it should have been but she always made it home. "

Sam tells us more, "The Mustang is fully stock except for the Gray Metallic paint and the black stripes. My Dad and I bought the car for $1,000.

Silver 1987 Mustang GT hatchback owned by Rob Falcone. This Mustang has the 302ci 5.0L V8 and a manual transmission. Rob tells us more, "I went for a ride in this car eight years ago and really enjoyed the ride. Every summer I would always ask the previous owner, 'When are you going to bring out the Mustang again?' Never saw the car again. Last year he came up to me and told me he was selling the car. I couldn't get to the bank fast enough. He had the car just under eight years and put less than 400 miles on it. Last summer I put 1600 miles on the car. Truly awesome and enjoying it."

Light Gray 1988 Mustang Saleen fastback owned by Kevin Abrahamson from Warwick, Rhode Island. Kevin tells us, "I bought the car from a local used car dealer on 7/3/99 with 48,511 miles. It just turned 56K. I tracked down the original owner here in R.I. and he gave me everything he had left except the SALEEN Jacket and Helmet that came with the car. The car came from Snipes Motor Co.in N.C.and I believe it was Chuck Snipes' Personal Demo and Track Car. Being a demo does not allow the company to sell it as new. The car came with a 'Approved For Daylight Use Only' Inspection Sticker which leads me to believe that the headlights were removed possibly to vent more air to the intake or possibly a supercharger. I have the sticker as well as the Saleen Autosport Production Work Order with 'to JBA for modification' which I believe was for the Factory installed Roll Bar and Frame connectors. Since coming to R.I. the original motor was
modified with GT40 aluminum intake and heads (NOT EXPLORER) and converted to mass air as well as various other upgrade mods."

Opal Frost 1995 Mustang GT owned by Jennie Penfold from Fareham, Hampshire, England. Jennie tells us, "I bought car in January 2015. The previous owner bought it a year earlier as a standard Mustang and did quite a bit of work on it. The rims are 18" XXR 527's in black chrome staggered fitment 8.5 on front with 265/35x18 Accelera PH1's and 10" on rear with 285/35x18 Pirelli P Zero Rosso's, with Focus RS Brembo 4 pot front brake conversion. I have replaced the discs with 330mm drilled and slotted ones, and EBC yellowstuff pads as the standard discs were warping. Pypes performance 'X pipe' (imported from states) from factory headers to straight thru Flowmaster silencers and stainless tail pipes. Full MSD ignition upgrade with Blaster coil. SR cold air feed inlet kit. LED projector lights. I have added a grille as it looked odd without one! Also added the roof and boot stripes which I think finish it off perfectly."

Satin Silver 2002 Mustang GT coupe owned by Roger Miller from Norristown, Pennsylvania. Roger has this story to share, "I owned a Pontiac Grand Am prior to owning this Stang. My friend was heavy into the pony and I was around them so much that I decided to pick one up. I am now hooked. Nothing beats a muscle car (sound or power). This one was bone stock when I bought it. Now it has a BBK X-pipe, Flowmasters, BBK cold air intake, Diablo sport tuner, and a lot of exterior mods (as you can tell by the pictures)."

You couldn't get a Cobra in the United States back in 2002. Kevin Abrahamson built his own! Kevin explains, "I scored this 02 GT with 60K in 06 for $3200 needing collision repair. It had a 2-inch Eibach suspension lowering kit and a very rude Magnaflow exhaust system. Since I already had 2001 Cobra front and rear bumper covers as well as a 2001 Cobra hood, I decided to Cobra Clone it. I also attached the factory GT hood scoop to the Cobra hood to give it an individual look. There were minor bolt on upgrades to the motor and the rear differential and the transmission is a stock Tremec with Ford Motorsports clutch setup."
Kevin owns other Mustangs as well.

Silver 2004 SVT Cobra convertible owned by Fred Scaldaferri from Fayetteville, North Carolina. It has a 4.6L V8 supercharged engine and
a manual transmission. Fred tells us, "I've always had a love for Cobras, especially the Terminator. I was deployed in 2009 and happened to see my Cobra on Carmax so I immediately called my wife to have her pick it up for me. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. As soon as I redeployed back home from overseas, I began modding it. So far I have a Borla Stinger catback exhaust, JLT gen 2 ram air intake, Stiegemeier stage 3 ported supercharger with a 2.8 upper pulley and a +2 lb crank pulley, 60lb injectors, and a Kenny Bell boost a pump. I also went with a Lethalperformance intercooler expansion tank and a Lightning Force
performance dual pass heat exchanger. As of right now, my last dyno yielded 508 hp and 490 ft-lbs of torque. For my suspension I have a complete fulltilt boogie racing bushing kit on the rear. I have Maximum Motorsports full length subframe connectors and diff brace. I also used billetflow subframe brackets. For the front I have Maximum Motorsports caster/camber plates with a front bumpsteer kit. It is lowered 1.5 inches with the Eibach pro kit lowering springs."

This customized Mineral Gray 2005 Mustang is owned by Barry Naft of Las Vegas, Nevada. Barry writes, I purchased this 2005 Mineral Gray Mustang on the 1st day it was available in Las Vegas, November 2004. I immediately drove it home and started customizing the body over the next 6 months with pieces found on E Bay. The market was just beginning so a lot of the parts were first off including the Cobra R front fascia. I did all the customizing and paint and striping myself, the car went through many changes from Retro to my original version of the pony long before Ford began producing them to its final look. This awesome modification was our Attitude Of The Week for September 7th, 2008. Barry also modified a Silver 1977 Mustang hatchback.

Mineral Gray 2005 Mustang coupe owned by Stanley from McDonough, Georgia. Stanley had this to share, "Hey guys and gals. I got my Mustang three months ago and I'm loving it. I had never had expected that a car (oops Mustang) could drive like this. Before buying my Mustang I drove a PT Cruiser and wow what a difference. I got into a car accident and totaled my cruiser. I started looking for a car. I actually wanted to buy a Lexus or a Infinity G35, but my girlfriend asked me to look at a Mustang. So we went to the dealership and there she was. We pulled in the dealership and the Mustang was sitting in the front row with my name on it. I drove it and loved it, bought it, and now a proud owner of a 2005 Ford Mustang. I WOULDN'T TRADE IT. Can't wait to fix it up. You shall see once it's all fixed upped."
