1965 Ford Mustang ( WTF?)

Yep, a Toyota Tiara. One of about 300 sold in the huge US market, and maybe the best survivor, if not the sole roadworthy survivor. I suspect these things rust at the mere rumor of rain. It was just "discovered" near Portland OR, although has obviously been enthusiast maintained. The replacement Corona would be 100x as successful in NA too, and the rest is history.

Yeah, you should be able to right click and get the URL. I use photobucket, which has recently undergone a terrible "upgrade" that seems to have ignored any usability studies, but at least it allows easy direct linking.

Weird image, but 61 Ford convertible

Although I prefer the Starliner hardtop, the '61 is my absolute favorite Ford of the sixties!
I like that blue too. I hate Ford's tomato reds of that period.
I'd have to have one with the correct full wheel covers, but love those cars.
One thing about Fords of that era I thought was a little goofy for a Big Three car, was how the steering column was actually two columns--a smaller one for steering and an exposed one for the shifter. Wouldn't keep me from really enjoying one though.

A Galaxie Sunliner, then. Dog dish caps and wide whites, I don't know.
Call me crazy, but I prefer the 1960. Both 60 and 61 are excellent examples of the transition between 50s glitz and 60s modernism, kind of stuck in metamorphosis.

Back in the 90s, my dad had a red and white on red and white 60 Country Sedan (try to find one of those today), I remember the two columns. Cool car, so wide and long, but via that it rode nicely.

Thanks for this - I don't pretend to understand code, but does that mean I literally go along and delete all the code before farm9/etc... or do I also have to delete all the signs?
Oh - and by the way - anybody know the car?

Yup[, that's a '61 Ford Sunliner.
