This time last year, I had the car idling out in the street with the bonnet up doing a quick checkup prior to going for a nice long drive. 3 young kids on their bikes crossed the street to come and have a look. Looking into the bonnet one of the kids asked "Does this have turbo?" I couldn't help but laugh. I said sorry kids ...no turbo.
As soon as I said that they completely lost interest and left!
Also, on 2 seperate occasions 2 people took a good look at the 71 Mach1 sitting in the garage and said:
That's a Valiant, isn't it?
Not that it's relevent in the slightest (Hi Laurie!) but they were both women.

cheers to all and have a very safe Xmas.

"your car is a clone, I know about these things. And by the way it is supposed to have stripes on it." Also very often "thats a 429 right?"

Not exactly Mustang, but noteworthy nonetheless...In the early 1970's I had a BMW (this is long before they enjoyed cult status) and some guy at work said "I saw you driving that funny looking Toyota yesterday!!!!" ... he was serious!!

Sitting at a stop light in my fastback: "How much did you pay for it?"

Kinda stupid question, considering I actually paid $2k for it, but spent $20k more restoring it. :no:

One of my neighbors telling me my car is a Z28 not a Mustang. he says "I can tell by your tail lights. Mustangs have three verticle lights on each side, your's has one long horizontal light on each side". I had to explain to him the Shelby tail lights, he still didn't get it and disagreed with me. I'm waiting for the day he see's my engine and asks why I put a Ford engine in a Chevy. :rofl:

I had someone tell me at a car show: Nice Mustang (65 fastback). I used to have one just like it. Only it was yellow not black, it had a 6 cyl and was a convertible. :lol:
Yep, I'm sure it looked just like mine. :rofl:

Did you buy it new? My response is always "I was 9 when my (67)car was built." (Do the math)

The biggest one that gets me is that when people are looking at my 66 GT fastback they always tell me they had one but it was a 64.5 I used to try and explain to them that they didn't make them but it is always to no avail, they had one in fact one guy has had two. Now I don't say anything except that you should have keep it.

It has occurred to me that the guys who seem to know every thing are the guys who never have anything. You ever notice this?

I get that question a lot too. Only it's a little worse, because I was 6 months old (to the day) when my car was built.

Do you think they say that because we look older than we are or the car looks newer than it is???

I think it must be the car looks newer!

I sure hope it is that the car looks good! :) I was only 3 and a half when mine was built.

I was in high school, making out with a girl in my car . She said "I might want to go further, too bad you don't have a back seat"

I have a fastback.

Pretty dumb on her part ::
