Nicely done. I once had a new '67 Mustang fastback, but red. Always regretted having to sell it, but 2 babies, cribs, strollers, etc. made a station wagon a necessity.

Thanks Walter. I think the first is a Tang although I'm not sure as I only recognize them from my rearview mirror.

Was this a cruise night? or did you just luck out and were ready when random cars drove by? I like the big red tach on the dash. That's where tachs should be. I'm gonna start asking the owners to straighten their steering wheels before I take the interior shots.

HE HE. You got to make the hike down here once in a while Frank. There are cruise nites every night of the week. Been doing this for quite a while, got sick of doing static shots and began ambushing them as they come and go. I hate trying to focus ones attention on one car and having other cars crowding in on it. Nature of the beast I suppose. Any rate the season is quickly coming to a close. Everybody should have one of these in their backseat.

yeah, it's a 67 or 68 Mustang. LOL @ only recognizing them in your rear-view mirror! while my trusty ol' Mopar ate many a Mustang for lunch, i have to admit, some of the big-block Hosses were very fast indeed...

Heres a couple for you squirl. GTX, Superbee, and a Cuda. I can remember them going for around 4 grand. Of course if you were making 20 g's back then.......you were living the real deal.

I think it was a '68 'stang based on the fake scoops in front of the rear wheels. '67s had 2 elongated scoop like decorations vs. the '68's single vertical bar. I removed that trim and filled the holes when I repainted my '68 in '76.

I had a slightly different experience w/ my '68 2brl 289 Mustang at the local drag strip. I picked on 383 engined Road Runners and the like. They had a higher trap speed and actually a quicker ET but I could hole shoot them by about 6 car lengths while they wrapped up their rear axle at the line and they weren't fast enough to make up that difference. I did intentionally avoid the 440s, I could hole shoot them as well but not enough to change the results.
