OT: An American Dream

Recommended Posts

This car is looking so great, in white, or in burgundy; maybe in any colour.

 

I must try to get that burgundy on an Albatros...

Hmmm,

 

Too many wheels. This is how I get around...

 

 

 

But, that *IS* a nice Mustang. I suppose I could work around my preference for two wheels. :wink:

I drive a Mustang but it ain't no '66 convertible. It's a '93 LX Hatchback. Five liter, five speed. I like it. I've been driving for 11 years. It's getting a little long in the tooth now. I need to get a little Jap beater to drive so I can rejuvenate it. I'm not getting rid of it.

I have a ZZR600D and a ZZR1100... though why the ZZR1100 has mirrors I dont know as I cant see anyone behind me...!!!

Love the early Mustangs. I owned a '65 convert 283 4-speed up until about eight years ago. I had to let it go in order to pursue other interests, but I have fond memories to carry with me. It was a terrific little car.

 

Cheers!

Don't you mean a 289?

 

 

'68 Fastback... Steve Mcquaid's Bullet, that was Mustang's best... other than the Mach I.

 

Ohlam... for colors... check out Mopar's (Dodge and Plymouth) from the early 70's.

 

Me... Chevy all the way. :good:

OMG! The Ford Owner's Club is going to have me dragged out into the street and shot for that mistake. Yes CJ...yes, I most certainly did mean a 289. :biggrin:

 

Cheers!

Two wheels are for Woosies!! :biggrin:

 

Now that's Unicycling for the clinically insane!! Can you imagine gunning that thing through all five... on an open highway.

 

Owners Manual Page 1: Lean forward, open throttle wide, dump clutch... pray to your God of choice.... have friend call for medic.

GRUMPYBEAR, I am quite sure the color of the Mustang in Olham's picture is "Vintage Burgundy". The one I owned was "Rangoon Red". I did have a 1950 F-3 1 ton pick-up that I painted n the infamous Ford "Candy Apple Red". That was a very neat old truck, and I miss it more than my pony car.

 

Salute!

AC Cobra.

 

Never owned one, never will, but first saw one on a beach in Majorca 20+ years ago, and never forgotten it.

 

"....The Cobra was perhaps too successful as a performance car and reputedly contributed to the implementation of national speed limits in the United Kingdom. An AC Cobra Coupe was calculated to have done 185 mph (298 km/h) on the M1 Motorway in 1964...."

 

 

If I had one, I wouldn't care if the top speed was 50mph. I'd still get bugs stuck to my teeth because I couldn't stop grinning.

 

Beautiful, just beautiful.

My 1st ride was a 1970 Boss 302 Mustang

Loved that car but I had to sell it to pay for school ...sigh!

 

Never lost the nostagic love for that ride but now a 67 Fastback is my favorite

 

 

Flyboy/Paarma,

 

Cobras aren't all that far out of reach if you're willing to settle for a replica

I visited ERA Cobra with a friend of a friend who was serious about buying

Surprizingly a lot of the components are made by the same manufacturers as the original

I guess the Brits don;t throw any tooling away

They'll put any V8 you want in it, but if you want a 427 $$$$

Yes, Shelby Cobras are looking hot!

OvS - you must have ment Steve McQueen - not related to Randy Quaid I think. Very cool actor - McQueen I mean.

 

In the seventies, I saw a movie called "Fluchtpunkt San Francisco" ("Vanishing point" ?), where actor Barry (???) drove

a white open car. Does anyone know the movie and the car?

Hey, Lou - vintage burgundy could be right - here is one to be said that colour.

 

Can anyone answer my question from the post before?

Vanishing Point.

Barry Newman was the actor.
