Besides cave diving and guns I also enjoy working on cars. This is my 1967 Mustang fastback. It's a factory 390GT 4-speed from California that has never seen snow and very little rain. It's completely original and has been featured in several magazines and calendars. I've had it since 1986 and I'll likely ask to be buried in it:D

Dang, the only thing you put in your profile is 'Florida'. How am I to find your home and steal your car? Please update your profile with full address and the times your not home. Thanks. :)

I was big into Mustangs when I was a lot younger man. They still put a gleam in this oldman's eye when I see a super beauty like you got there Cavediver. One of my daughters picked up my love of the Mustang. She has a 2005 fastback. Me and her take it out and shake it down now and then. You know kind of blow the carbon out, and recharge the oldmans battery.
I can see I don't have to tell you to take good care of her so Good Luck and enjoy. Thanks for sharing.

That thing is awesome! I'm a Chevy guy, but you have to love those Mustangs. Do you drive it or is it a closet queen? Something that purty just begs to be driven.

Never ever has it been trailered in 20 years except for one time when I took it to it's new home in the garage at our house in Florida last May. It has been raced many times at races like the Muscle Car Nationals and Ford Nationals at tracks like Maple Grove Raceway and also at Beaver Springs Raceway.

It's only a car if you drive it, otherwise it is simply artwork. I don't collect art:D

That's one great looking mustang. I'm glad to see the newer model mustangs being modeled after the ones from the late 60s/early 70s. :D

I'm a Chevy guy too, but that's flat out awesome. That 390 is impressive. A friend had a Fairlane GT with the 390HO and four speed and I've been in it when he ran through the gears and chirped a tire in all four gears. Pulled like a freight train, and that Fairlane - I'm guessing - is heavier than your mustang. I bet she MOVES!!

Very nice. And I agree, you just gotta drive it. If it just sits there you are missing out on a lifetime experience. Wish everyone could drive a musclecar from the 60's - 70's. Especially the younger generation. Nothing else like it.

I was all set to buy that car's twin but when I sat in the driver's seat my legs wouldn't fit in the car. I thought about buying it anyways and building a custom seat rail and putting a smaller steering wheel in but it was all original and I didn't have the heart to ruin it. I bought a 2001 Pontiac Firehawk instead. [:p]
