I hope you buy it rather than inherit it. If you inherit it, it's because.....well, you know.... ;) .....sweet car, anyway. Nice to know it's a one owner car.

Nice car. I used to have a 66 in Springtime yellow that looked just like your Grandpa's car.

You might want to change your signature from "I have the classic itch" to "I have an itch for a classic." It sounds a little like your medical history...if you know what I mean.

:thumbup: Nice looking car!

If I was you I would ask your grandfather and father to tell you all the stories they have concerning the car. Seeing how it's been in the family all these years does you grandfather still have any of the original paperwork? If so I would put them into page protectors and then into a binder for safe keeping. Additionally somewhere inside that car maybe under the carpet, dash, or under a seat, or inside it there sould be a build sheet from the factory. Another piece of documentation that would be really cool to find and show off someday. I would also get some pics of your grandfather, father, and yourself all standing next to it. Your a lucky guy and I hope that you get it someday.

+1 for the suggestions from Robert. I agree with everything except being a lucky guy, I believe she is a lucky gal.

I would also suggest that you ask your grandpa for any and all pictures that have the Mustang in it and copy them. Maybe you could start scrap booking now while he is still around to enjoy it!

Definatly!!! I will have to start asking him while he is still here! Im sure there are a few good stories about the stang, although he left it garaged mostly!

Thanks for clarifying that!!! When i first registered here that was one of the comments i got! LOL I definatly need to document the car more, while i have time with my great grandpa and the car. Great idea Zforce, thank you! :)

Your grandpa's car is nice but the car in your sig is ridiculous! I love that car and I'm not a fan of white. I want a new GT so bad... Almost forgot to add, I was LMAO at "I have the classic itch".

May your Granpa be around for a long time and may you continue the tradition of a well kept classic.

How old are you Stephanie? If the 65 is your great grandpa's Mustang, then I will assume you are in your early teens. If not, then I apologize for what I am about to say. Do not, under any circumstances, drive that classic Mustang until you are well into your 20's and have enough driving experience to be able to drive that old dinosaur.

It states that she is 24, below her avatar (or lack there of)

24? Then I stand corrected and I aplogize for assuming the teenager mindset. It just doesn't seem possible for a 24 year old person to have a great grandpa still alive. Good for him, and may he still have lots of cool evening drives on the back roads with his gorgeous 1965 Springtime yellow Mustang coupe.

I've been wondering why you're so sure that you'll inherit it. It's your great grandpa, so that means there are his kid(s), grand kid(s), and then you. I'm guessing you've been told you're getting it since you've got the Mustang disease. I think that I would pass it along while I'm still alive so that I can see my chosen one enjoy it and let everyone else see my approval by my decision to let it go.

Your grandpa's stang looks great. My F/B was originally the springtime yellow like your grandpa's,but i would give up my F/B if it would bring any of my family members back to me(it's just a car!) Enjoy your grandpa's company(thats priceless!!!)
