The vertical slit could be part of the intercooler, I don't know for sure.

I still have this, but I think I'm going to get an S when we move to Florida. In WHITE.

White would be good.  Are you anywhere near Sarasota?

A bit South, in Burnt Store Marina.

I just signed up for energy efficient windows today too. They will also be impact windows, so I get to remove the shutters, which look like shit.

I'm just south of Sarasota in January, if we get clear of this S out there.

I just noticed I am featured in this promo.

Mine too!


Although I've heard that some people like the convertible version better.



You and I have disagreed on many things over the years.  This is not one of those things. :)

I love the Shelbys and the KRs and the Cobras, but I'd be so happy simply to have a '65 or '66 289 convertible.

Pontiac did.  Once.  With aftermarket help.


Heh, I guess it was common back in the day.

There's something about Mustangs that puts them in a different category than all other pony cars, even better (at times) pony cars.  It's not quite that they were first, because the Barracuda (not that it was much) actually came out first.
I do like the convertible version of the '65-66s too.  If I had one, and a sizeable budget, I'd do something very different with it than I would a 2+2 of the same era.  They'd both be very enjoyable to drive, but in very different ways.  I might even put an automatic in the convertible.
And maybe that's also a part of what made 1st-gen Mustangs great in a way that superseded their mere mechanics.

The Mustang-Camaro battles over the decades in the car mags were epic, especially the letters they'd publish the next month about how wrong they were.

The highest performance versions today are hugely different from their roots, and the most modest performance version today is faster than most of the fastest from the 60s.

Ah, the lakes. This is why the worst season for cities near the Great Lakes is actually the spring.  The MF lakes take so long to warm up it completely dominates the climate.  Spring does not exist in Milwaukee/Chicago, etc.

Amazing what 5-10 miles inland does in those locales.
Yep. The Lake Michigan Ice Box rages on, mostly until June, if there is any wind off of it. Last year she never got above 70 by us. So, even in the dog days of August, we'd approach the marina and the damn thermometer would go from 85 to 65 in about a mile.
