Perfect timing, with the Mustang's official 44th birthday only two days away.

"The original Mustang stole the publicity limelight, and the hearts of Americans, the day it arrived April 17 at the 1964 World's Fair in New York."

You know more about the car than I do. All I remember is that I bought it in 1964 for the outrageously high price of $2,250 just in time to impress the girls at the summer semester in college. I don’t even remember if I was successful doing so.

I've had a few Mustangs. First was a '65, then a '71 MachI, a '78 King Cobra, after that a 2001 GT Stang and my current baby is a 2007 GT with a Mark III custom package right off the showroom. It's not an everyday vehicle but its fun to get out on nice days.

"Of course, that's what the original Cobra was (289 or 427 Fords in a small English roadster)."

Back in the 80's, TVR brought the concept forward 20 years. They were beautiful cars...

That’s beautiful. Gorgeous.

I’ve had a few “Ponies” myself. My favorite being my beloved 540HP, 141MPH, 10.3sec, 69 BOSS 302, with the motor that was built by Chaffey College.

Thanks for the nostalgia.

You’re absolutely right and I knew after I re-read my post that someone would rightly refute my “never”. But then we were speaking about the ‘64 1/2 - ‘65 Mustang so that part, at least, is true. And if you want to take it further the Mustang, in all configurations, has had a bunch of different engines; fours, sixes (straight and V-6) and eights including 260, 289, 302 (Windsor and Cleveland), 351 (Windsor and Cleveland), 390, 428 (Shelby), 429 (Shelby), 460 (Police) and, lest we forget our dragster brethern, 427 in several different head designs, not to mention the 427 SOHC. More recent versions have reduced CID due to making more power with electonic fuel injection and aluminum heads with 4 valves per cylinder (a highly exotic thought in my time) now commonplace.

Thanks for the compliments. This was my old 1978 King Cobra Mustang with 5.0 liter engine ... it would scoot! Gave about $5500 brand new for it, those were the days!
