I love everything Mustang, and in 2004, already had possession of a 1968 convertible and a 1969 GT fastback. I needed a modern Mustang to fill my needs though. The redesigned Mustang for 2005 was perfect, the old looks combined with new comforts.
I am a French and Spanish teacher in a CT middle school, who is not above teaching car parts to her students in French and Spanish during a nice Spring day, using one of my Ford Mustangs! This helps make for interested learners and (hopefully) Ford fans!
My 2005 Tasca Cobra Jet Gt is a favorite. It currently has 525 rwhp and 510 torque. It has been highly modded by the Tasca Performance Center in RI, yet it was designed by me. It was one of 6 cars built that year in the Cobra Jet program by Tasca.
I also own a 1968 Mustang convertible, that has been completley redone, and a little restomodded. New seats with carbon fiber inserts, plus 2004 40th Anniversary crimson red paint adorns it , including the Arizona beige C-stripe and indicator stripes.
The kids never tire asking when the 1969 GT fastback will come to school, but alas, that is a long -term project.
Every Spring it is a rite of passage for the 8th graders to hold their formal dance at the school, all dressed up. My Mustangs are on hand for their photos, yes I let them sit in my cars! I find fingerprints all summer long ! It’s all about making their night remarkable and to have Ford play a part is awesome…
Now about that 2013 Mustang, I think I need one to join my pets!
