I'm watching Overhaulin' last night ('65 fastback), they introduce the build team and one guy looks very familiar. The guy they called "mustang Joe", I think he was in charge of getting the engine running, is a guy I grew up with here in Michigan. I haven't seen him in at least 20 years but his brother still lives here and I talk to him occasionally. I'm going to give him a call today and see what's up, he's never mentioned his brother being into 'stangs.

Don't know about Joe but I saw Jerry (glasses & mustache)from ABC Mustangs in Hayward in the mix. Jerry got himself in the frame while the two host (that guy and Courtney) were talking by the front brake assembly. :)

I think there is a repeat episode on Thursday night (not sure of the time). I'm not sure if they show the same car from Tuesday, but you can check it out.

That car looked friggin sweet! One thing I didnt like was the copying of the quarter window "scoop" that they stole from the Fastforward Fastback done by Rad Rides By Troy. Thought that looked silly.

They also had a group from Maier Racing doing the suspension. I think they are from Castro Valley or Hayward as well. I really have to eat crow on this one. After the bogus mess they made of the 442 a couple of weeks back I was concerned about how the Mustang would fare. Foose seemed to show some respect for the Mustang heritage and kept the car in a quasi-Shelby theme. I even liked the interior upholstery. They could have done something else with the sail panels, however. Still, all-in-all, a tasteful job and the car was an I6 car to start with, so they weren't tearing up a "significant" car.

I6s are insignificant huh?

I'll take that as an insult. ;)

I wonder why they just didn't use a Ford Racing 200 crate motor.
