This Dynasty Green 1965 Mustang hardtop is owned by Hayley M. of New York and was our Attitude Of The Week for November 15, 2009. Hayley says, I just purchased from a couple who bought it in Utah 10 years ago. When they got it, several beehives were present in the headlights and engine compartment. They went a little crazy with the color choices under the hood, but retained the original color. All I know about it is what the previous owner knew, which wasn't all that much. While it's not perfect, it's a classic that deserves to be well taken care of, and I intend to do so for many years to come. My only addition has been the pirate flag on the antenna.

Teresa Summerfield owns this Honey Gold 1965 Mustang hardtop. It's our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 1, 2012. Teresa had this to share, "Always wanted a 65 Mustang. When I decided to sell my motorcycle, I couldn't leave the spare garage empty and I certainly couldn't use the money from the sale of the motorcycle for anything but another toy. So it was decided. I knew I wanted Honey Gold and maybe I wasn't patient enough because I settled on a Honey Gold in need of a lot of work. Started looking in Feb of 2011 and found mine in June of 2011. My original budget is busted, but I don't think I have more in her than she's worth. Her name is Gracie Lou."

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.

The car was purchased in the US from the same family who bought the car originally. It is an excellent example of the classic icon."
