Hey, family is always at the top of the list. I have to sharpen my eye, I thought it was a '69 in the picture. I did like the '70 better. Its great to preserve old cars, to many have gone the way of the crusher.

As we get older, we tend to see the value of family and the other things that make life worthy of living and being born in 1952 I eye sight has gotten very good in seeing these types of things and well as a good looking mustang.

Well there are us mustang lovers out here but not many of us can say our cars are in the condition yours is in and have had it as long as you. It looks very close to stock. I send you a high-five for the effort you have put into your very nice stang . The best of the best. Now all you need do now is teach a younger girl or boy as long as we pass on the legacy. I have willed my 1970 fast back to my grandson, I have already gotten my son and daughter in up to there eye balls.

Your car sounds great! As stated above I congratulate you on the work you've put into this great car!! Those early GT's we're simply the best ( in my opinion) and you clearly had foresite in keeping that car. So many of us ( self included) have lived with the mistake of selling our early Mustangs.. and of course other great cars.

I drive my late father's 2000 Mustang V-6. I don't know how the size of the 2011 engine compares, but the V-6 in mine is quite large and has plenty of spunk for the kind of driving I do. I drive a lot of two-lane state roads and interstates. A V-8 would just cost more in gas when a lot of the time I'm just cruising at highway speed. As for comfortable, I'm sure it will wrap you in comfort!!!
Enjoy the show!

The 2011 Mustang, that I am interested in has a 3.7 V6 305HP engine, and a six speed automatic transmission. ---- The vehicle comes with dual exhaust and the engine has double overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, an alloy block & heads, variable valve timing, a 5 quart oil capacity and a 6850 rpm redline! What is really "cool," is that this vehicle can get 30mpg on the highway! ---- In addition, I have a friend who owns a sign business, and he can make all the graphics of the GT 350 Shelby. The only thing that would give this vehicle away, would be the placement of the exhaust. The Shelby has the exhaust exit in the center of the vehicle. But most people would not "pick up" on this detail on the road. ---- It would be a "fun vehicle" to drive on the road. ---- I would like this vehicle in white with the blue Shelby graphics. ----- Now, if the "V6 dual exhaust system" has the Mustang's exhaust "deep rumble" out of the box, the picture would be complete! ---- I would purchase this vehicle with a 6 speed stick, but my wife cannot drive "stick!" --- I drove stick shift cars in the 60's, and this would be great, but you cannot have everything!
Best regards! ----------- Dwayne

That's exactly what I would buy - except it would be a convertible with a stick because it would not be a daily driver. Go for it!
