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.

American Muscle is giving away a Chip Foose Mustang

The folks at American Muscle are going to give somebody a one of a kind Chip Foose 2015 Mustang.

There is a video on Youtube showing the car off and talking about it. Here's the link to that.

 It looks like it would a lovely addition to anyone's collection, and it's free. Personally, I've always been rather fond of free stuff, especially really expensive free stuff. And, in the interest of total transparency, I am in no way affiliated with American Muscle. I have never spent a nickel on anything they sell, and have never received a nickel from them for any reason whatsoever, but, I do know that have a very good reputation and have seen them go the extra mile to make sure that a customer is completely satisfied. I have never heard a harsh word pointed in their direction, and, given the nature of the internet, that is pretty impressive. If I had a late model Mustang I would be a customer of theirs.
