You may not be able to afford one now, the way prices on those have escalated. I had a 1967 red fastback that I bought new. Two babies later we had to switch to a more practical station wagon ('69 Ford Torino). I still miss the Mustang.

yeah, the prices have gotten way out of hand, especially for the fastbacks like your photo. a buddy ofmine in high school had a super clean teal-colored one with white interior and the 200 cid 6. not a hot rod, but it sure was a nice little car! it'd be worth $5000 or more today, and fully restored ones, especially the rarer versions,can fetch upwards of 15 grand... but much as i'd like to have one of those old pony cars, i can't see spending more for a 40-year-old model than i did for my 2000 Pontiac!

Yeah, I hear you. The only good thing is that you could do some of your own maintenance and repairs on those, unlike having to have a 100-grand computer to diagnose today's vehicles.

I still like the lines of my 67 Mustang fastback better.

That, indeed, is a beautiful Gran Prix and a nice digital treatment. Wish the tree limb reflections weren't so prominent, however. Thanks for sharing your prize wheels.
