My First Mustang

When i was 15 my dad asked me what kind of car i wanted, and i said i wanted something old that i can work on my self. So we look and look and then in August of 2002 we find a 1969 Mustang Mach 1, but it’s in pretty rough shape. Then we start restoring it, doing as much of the work as we could. After a little over 2 years of working on it in our back yard, i had a car i could drive. To this day it still isn’t finished, but i can drive it everyday if i want, and i am very thankful that i had a dad that would spend the time and money on a car like that for a me. Working on that car with my dad has made me who i am today.

stu dunkel We still have our first mustang, a 1967 fastback bot new in 1967. We love this car, it is now a weekend driver. IUt has never failed to get us where we want to go. I,Ford, and variouos indepedents have all worked on this thing. It is so simple any one can fix/maintain it, that is the beauty of it. ......Stu Dunkel

Paolo Ortega I canĀ“t afford a match 1 so I bought a coupe 69 in rough condition and i love it. So is not the price of the car Is the passion you put on it. Hi from Mexico.

Lee Love the Mach1, especially the 69' & the 1 or 2 years before & after that model. The body design a few years before 69' & I think after 71' were kind of unMustang looking but other than that, Mustangs namely the Mach, have always been eye catchers for me. Other than the Boss, & Shelby, the Mach1 is in my opinion, 1 of if not the hottest top ten cars of that period. Good choice, enjoy.

In the world of cars the mustang is my absolute favorite. But there is one thing that this car lacks most of all and that is performance handling. take a look at european cars compared to them we are in the stone ages yes i know the new mustang is wider and lowered also it has independent suspention all four tires, we will wait to see what it can do. Also we have a 5L engine that stock puts out around 450 HP really? how is it smaller engines can dut out the same? what i am trying to say is the mustang is an iconic car and when it first came out it was top of the line, throught the years of mustangs life it has fallen into a rut of terrible design untill the you have the 2005 or newer model. but performance on the track has still been lacking if ford wants to keep up in the world they need to have a faster, lighter and well it has already got the looks down but come on please for the pride of our country put money aside and make something amazing that can show the world what America can make out of its own garage! Thank you
