Ivy Glow 1972 Mustang notchback owned by Zak from Seattle, Washington. It has the original 351ci-2V engine and an automatic transmission. Zak tells us, "I bought this car when I was 15 years old in May of 2012 when I didn't even have my drivers permit. We found it just up the street from where I live. It was sitting outside under a car cover for five years. The
owner was offering $1,500. It was not running at the time. The car only needed a new set of tires, new fluids, fuel pump, battery, windshield wipers and a rebuilt carburetor. Cosmetically the car just needed a wash, wax and vacuuming. Other then that, the interior and exterior are virtually untouched since purchased. I later painted the vinyl roof and put a seal around the sunroof. The sunroof and baby moon rims were already put on when I bought the car. The car has the original paint (never repainted), factory A/C, shop manuals, owners manual, wiring diagram, documentation, spare tire, original hub caps (not currently installed), and original AM radio (not currently installed). I am currently a member of Pacific Cascade Mustang Club since February of 2013. The car is great and I love to drive it when the weather is good!" |

Bright Red 1977 Mustang II coupe owned by Terry and Mona Burgess from Victoria BC, Canada. It still as the original 302ci engine under the hood. The owner has this story to share, "Growing up, my Dad had always wanted to purchase a Mustang. He had taken early retirement at 60 years old and seriously started looking at a Mustang as his next car of choice. He looked at many but the little red Mustang II caught his eye and he convinced my Mom that the little red girl was the one. He couldn't wait to call me and tell me that he had purchased it. Dad came over to my apartment, picked me up and took me over to the house to see her. My Dad loved his new car but didn't have an opportunity to drive it for very long as he had a stroke and couldn't drive any more. When ever he had to go to the doctor, I made sure to take him in his red jewel. Although he
couldn't drive he would have an opportunity to be in it. He never regained his health and before he passed away he signed his very special car to me. I drove my Dad's car every day to work until three years ago until she was hurting for a lot more TLC than I could continue to give her. My husband promised to restore her for me and I must admit that I wasn't totally convinced that he would do it as it was a large undertaking. I only expected for him to get the car running again, but as you can see he has gone far beyond that and restored her back to original condition. The car I loved driving for many years that held tremendous amount of sentimental value for me, is back on the road again and looking and running pretty sweet. I'm sure my Dad would have been pretty proud of how she looks."

Check out this Bright Red 1981 Mustang notchback. It's owned by Because You Can Motorsports. The owner tells us, "Long story short... She was stored in 1994 by the original owner. We found her in March of 2012. In July 2012 we began work. This is the original paint sprayed in September 1980. We finished her in September 2012. Animals made quick work of the interior even though she was in a garage. We were able to build this car with extra parts we had laying around the shop and a lot of work. Originally being a 4 cylinder we used a 1991 drop top as a donor for all the steering and suspension (except the springs). She was also converted to 5 lug. The engine is a 302 bored .030 over with a Bcam with built e7s, and every bolt on part we could throw at it. Shes for sale. We're asking 5000 obo. If you have any questions feel free to email us."

Azul (blue) 1983 Mustang Ghia Mexico notchback owned by Fabio Agredo from Maracay, Venezuela. Those are "deluxe full wheel covers" which where standard on the L, GL, and GLX. This car is a mix between a US Mustang and a Capri. I haven't seen this notchback body style before. I've only seen the hatchback which has the Capri front end. It has a V6 emblem on the front fender. Fabio tells us, "Desde chamo o para ese año siempre desee tener uno me moria por tenerlo pero era muy chico. Siempre quedo en mi mente ahora pasados los 38 años logre mi sueño un Ghia original con tan solo 35.000 millas, totalmente guardado para mi y la compra fue para celebrar en grande pleno mes de mi cumpleaños, mi mejor regalo. Eso fue una mañana q fui avisitar un cliente y sin querer en el estacionamiento
lo vi lleno de polvo logre hablar con su dueña insisti y en ocho meses decidio vendermelo. Lo q queria era q me entregara las llaves y listo pero no fue facil dure casi tres horas hasta q logre sacarlo de su garaje. Ahora lo conservo por eso 'yo y mi mustang mi mustang y yo'" I had help from a Spanish speaking co-worker to translate: "When I was a kid I wish I had one. It has been always in my mind. Now, that I am 38 years old my dream came through, an original Ghia with just 35,000 miles. Just for me. I got it as a birthday present, the best one ever. One morning I went to visit a client and in the parking lot I saw it all dusty. I talked to the owner (a lady) and after 8 months of negotiations I convinced her to sell it to me. I just wanted her to hand over the keys to me. It was not easy to get it out of her garage. It took me 3 hrs to start it. For that reason I keep it. Me and my Mustang, my Mustang and me."

Check out this 1994 Mustang GT coupe owned by Ludwig Stein from Blackfalds, Alberta, Canada. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 9, 2011. Ludwig tells us more, "I bought the car in 2007. The car was lowered with Steeda springs. It also came with Bilstein Shocks and struts. The tires are Sumitomo 315-35/17s in rear and 245-40/17s in the front which is an awesome hoof print. I've added sub frame connectors and a strut brace as well. The engine is stock other than a cold air and an aftermarket intake. We autocross and road race it on a regular bases. The paint is from the 1969 Trans Am Mustang driven by Parnelli Jones & George Follmer. Mine is dedicated to George - just cause Parnelli gets all the praise but it takes a team to win."

1994 Mustang coupe owned by Mont Mead from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It has a 3.8L V6 engine and a manual transmission. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting June 15, 2014. Mont shares his story about getting his Mustang, "So I was on my way to the bank to get 2k for a nice bike a guy from work was selling. I drove past this dealer that had cars out on the lot. One said 1500. I did a U-turn to see what the was the catch - it was a Dodge Intrepid and the catch was money down payments later. I asked what you have for sale for 2k and they pointed out 3 different cars - and then I saw her. A 94 Red Mustang. Mind you, I saw it on the lot and was like - yea prob can't afford it. I came back the next day with someone that new how to drive a stick and drove off the lot with it, 2k even. Did it need work? Heck yeah it did. I restored all the parts under the hood, bought tires and rims. Then I forgot to put the E-brake on it. I know = newbie move. I came back outside and it was sitting under a tree. I was not so happy. The bumper, headlights, side panel, grille, and hood had to be replaced and pulled out. After getting all that fixed, I burned out my clutch - still being a newbie and not shifting right. I got that fixed and then months go by and I get Flow Masters and K&N. I'm loving the sound and getting tickets. I get them payed them off and get more! 4 back to back. Months go by now - the primer paint, not the new parts, are starting to peel. I wasn't getting it painted until all the other parts are restored. Finally I get it painted Berry Wine. It's so amazing now. Everyone tells me how great it looks and that it looks brand new off the lot. I'm very happy to be a Mustang owner. I will stay a
Mustang owner for years to come. That's my story on how it became the best choice I made in a while. I never went back to the guy selling the bike, but come on what would you do?"

Walt tells us more, "This was my son's car but he bought an 04 Mach 1 and parked the 94 GT. I got a deal from him and have been modding it ever since. He used to deliver pizza and Mexican food in it but it was pretty pristine when I got it. I have turned it into a Roush 360 Series Tribute car. I have installed the Roush front splitters and wing.

This SVT Cobra has been garaged kept it's whole life. The only way to explain how perfect and clean this Cobra is, is to imagine that it is the year 1998 and you are walking into a Ford dealership and this Cobra is being displayed on the showroom floor. This Cobra drives like a brand new car, no rattles, squeaks, dings, or dents. It's a pure gem and the greatest find. I love Mustangs. I truly can say this is my favorite one out of the 14 I've owned."

Electric Green 1999 Cobra coupe owned by Stuart Urie from Milford, New Hampshire. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting December 24, 2012. Stuart tells us, "Kelly was bought by me in 2004. Back in spring 2006, after looking for about three years, I finally found a green '99 with charcoal for $13k and I went to work to think it over. When I got home it was gone. Later in August, after giving up looking, I looked on Autotrader one early morning and found another just posted. Same price $13k. I called/emailed... then wife said just get it.
I bought her sight unseen. And beat out two others from OR and AZ. One had called and offered to buy sight unseen 15 minutes after I had. I flew down
to AL to get it and had just paid for it when a local guy pulled in all excited and started opening the doors, etc. He had been spending some time convincing his wife to let him buy it. Anyway when I drove it back into NH and had time to look at the VIN. It turned out to be the same car I had found in the spring. Someone bought her, drove her for the summer, then traded her to a local Ford dealer, who then sold her to my AL dealer, who then posted her up on Autotrader again. Kelly was meant to be mine."

Black 2001 Mustang GT coupe owned by Jesse Keogh from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jesse tell us about his ride, "I did my undergraduate in Las Vegas, and I came across it on-line when I was searching for my first muscle car. It was a very nice California car with little wear and 43K miles. It had to be Ford. I have slowly moved up the ranks from my first car an Escort LX, then a Probe GT, and now a Mustang GT! I have fallen in love with the stangs. My college budget is hard to work with but it's always a work in progress. I am going with a blacked out, sleeper look and eventually plan on adding a twin turbo kit with forged internals."
