There is a very large class of people that own 65/66 Mustangs that, as far as I can tell, anyway, have been, for the most part, ignored entirely. They don't really want that 100 pt. show car that is so nice and was soooo expensive that they're afraid to drive it, they also don't want to make their car capable of achieving warp factor three. They just want this car that they dearly love to be able to cruise around smoothly and reliably, without having it dump them out on the side of the road or have it start making weird noises or belching out big clouds of funky-smelling smoke. And I think, truth be told, that this is by far the largest class of Mustang owners. They take their car to some technician when what they actually need is a mechanic, and this, frequently, does not work out very well at all for the owner. They don't want to re-engineer the entire car, they just want someone to fix what broke. These are the people that I am trying help out with this blog. Some problems require a little bit of back and forth, as in, "Try this." "I tried that and it didn't change anything."
" Oh. well, you probably need to try that." " I tried that and it helped, but it still isn't quite right." "Now you need to try this...." If you go to http://www.allfordmustangs.com/ and then go to the classics forums, you will be able to do that with a pretty hefty gathering of some very knowledgeable people that also happen to be very friendly. None of that ridiculous one-upmanship, no flaming or abuse, none of that stuff. Just good, solid advice from people that know what they are talking about.

2014 Mustang Giveaway from American Muscle

A company called American Muscle, which makes go-fast stuff, is giving away a 2014 Mustang in a sweepstakes. I have never actually bought anything from them myself, because their products are for people with 1979-2014 Mustangs, but, I have never heard anything but good things about them, and have seen their customer service department go above and beyond when they had not actually done anything wrong. If they made things for 65/66 cars, I would certainly be a customer of theirs. Since there wouldn't be anything strange about a person with a 65/66 Mustang also having a newer one, those people might be interested in this. And, what could be better than winning a free 2014 supercharged Mustang? Here's the sign-up page for that. Good luck.
