Lighter and faster.

What a lovely car.

So, more like a British coupe (Aston, etc.) of the time, but with a V8.

I think it looks pretty neat but from the rear I'd rather have an original, which is bad news for subby. Now turn around.

Since the Mustang was originally marketed to women, subtard has identity/gender projection issues. It's best to remember that even for you, lonelymitter, there is someone. Probably won't be driving one of these, though.

Subby, don't ever let anyone tell you there's something wrong with thinking about other dudes' cocks. You just be who you are NTTAWWT.

Very nice. I'll be dropping in a twin turbo on my 5.0 soon; just need to see when my welder will be available.

It looks like the spawn of a Maverick and a Capri.

Reminds me of helping a HS friend fix up his 641/2 coupe... This was in east Memphis decades back - we'd make numerous trips down around the Olive Branch, Miss to all the junk yards & scavenge for parts.

How you drive is indicative of penis size.  The big SUV trying to muscle people out of the way by looming over them, the little coupe weaving around like a total retard just to get a few cars upstream, etc.  All the vehicle itself says is what kind of payments and gas bills you can tolerate, how it actually is driven on the road shows what your dick size is.

I'm getting a kick because I had a guy in a Ford Escape cut off my Z06 this morning.  He comes over from the left lane, cuts me off, flips me the bird because I'd refused to cancel my cruise control and let him in, then revs it up passes a few cars on their right and cuts back into the left lane, cutting off a Sentra.  All because he couldn't wait in line for a few cars in front of him to pass a semi truck before it was his turn to pass them.

/I  caught up with him, got in front of him and spent 10 minutes amusing myself playing "Your Escape can't pass my Corvette no matter how hard you mash that pedal."
//so while my dick might be small, I can name smaller
/got the Escape to switch over into the right lane and floor it in a desperate bid to get around me, paced beside him right up to the rear of a semi truck and waited until there was a line of cars behind me before passing the semi.  Last I saw the Escape he was trapped behind a gravel hauler unable to get back over, lovely Sunday morning cruise

Yeah subby, I'm sure you drive a Prius because of your monstrous manhood.
 
2013-03-09 02:50:06 PM
With that short wheelbase and  a 289 HP under the hood, I bet it would have been a very squirrelly ride.
 
2013-03-09 02:50:41 PM
Well, that's different. Probably a very rough-riding little car.

if you're of an unethical bend, here's a fun fact:

the VIN number of a '1964 1/2' mustang is 100% identical to a 1965 mustang. they were the same model year.

if you're a dab hand with a TIG welder and are pretty good at body work you can convert a 1965 to a 64&1/2.

there's not much to this but you can con a sucker into a bigger sticker price this way.

I know it's my mid-life crisis calling, but I'd LOVE to buy a quality Stang (pre '69), a so wheat Cutlass, Chavelle, or a nice GTO - all ragtops of course,... and manual transmissions. Sure I know this means I have a painfully small penis and am sooo over compensating, etc. - but I don't care what the kids on this site think - I just wish I could find such a thing here in central NC....

/hey - I'm old. So blow me....

My office sits on top of my boss's car shop. 69 Vette, 67 GTO, 69 Camero, and my favorite, the 62 Nova with a Grand National engine. A mid life crisis can be fun for you and your friends!

This is a freaking plumbing shop and we have a full time auto detailer. Strange world.

Oh great - I always wanted a really fast car that handles like a Jeep, because I'm afraid I'm not going to die soon enough of natural causes.

My first car was a 64 and a half Stang. I thought it was the biggest p.o.s. ever. That is, until I ended up with a grey-market 350 SE.

Heh. I get a giggle whenever penis size in relation to anything comes up. I'm a big guy-6'5". 650lbs (hey, in my defense, I have lymphedema and have actually LOST weight-down from 800lbs in 2009) who happens to have a teeny tiny member. I have an innie rather than an outtie. Small, tiny, 38 year old with baby junk. Yet I have no problem with this. I don't care. About the only inconvenience is that I have to sit down to pee but that just means I get more reading done ^_^

I have two mates (we're poly) who ;love me to pieces despite the fact that i'm teeny. Who gives a crap, we still have fun. There are other ways of 'entertaining' that don't require whipping out a mammoth hogleg and not to sound too full of myself here but I get the job done so well, they come back for seconds.

That being said, no way my fat ass would fit in that car. Give me a good, dependable minivan any day. My '96 Mercury Villager has taken me across the country several times and has delivered me to the ER in time to save my life twice. She's earned her keep and gets more respect from me than ANY muscle care/SUV will ever get. When she's finally too old and broken down to continue, we're not ever selling her for scrap. I'll continue to treat her as a valued member of our family.

Had a '65.  Vintage Burgundy.  Had just finished restoring it and the only thing left to do was recover the front seats when some asshole who wasn't supposed to be driving ran into it and totaled her.

Oh, how I love doing that on long road trips.  Oh what's that mr. Corolla, you want to zip over into the right lane to pass this line of cars clearly lined up to pass this semi?  Yeah, how about if I speed up just enough to make that impossible and then watch you get trapped behind the semi as everyone you sped passed inches up on the car ahead of them so you can't get over.  Oh what's that, now that you finally got around you're going to try to cut me off on this straightaway?  Can your car do 140?  Nah, I didn't think so.

One of my neighbors has one of those...same color, too, though better wheels than those Panasports.

The rear looks enough like a Pinto that I'm sure a production Shorty would been perfectly safe in a rear-end collision.

All those early Mustangs had the same issues with rear-mounted fuel tanks going up in flames. It's just that the Pinto got tagged with it. Modifying this car didn't change that at all.

Yeah, I know about the design issue, but Pintos actually have a record that's equal to other cars of the era. Like you said, it's just that the Pinto got tagged.

I remember those recall kits. Having to deal with that shiat instead of doing paying jobs was one of the reasons why the dealership he worked for (P&S Mgr.) closed the next year.

My grandma had a '65 Mustang, cherry red and absolutely gorgeous, as well as three other classic cars including a pink Chevette and the prettiest '55 Chevy you ever saw. Fixed and maintained them herself up into her early eighties, taught us all to drive stick in them and the only aftermarket mods she ever made were seatbelts for her grandchildren. She used to win ribbons and trophies at shows and classic-car cruises for her beautiful old ponies, and though she kept a plain late-Nineties Corolla for everyday and advised us all to buy import cars, we were always in awe of her classics. That smell of leather, carburated fuel and pre-EPA emissions with just a whiff of Chanel No.5...from blocks away, we knew Grandma was visiting.

When the time came for her to give up driving (cataracts, macular degeneration and an increase in parking fees at her senior citizens' independent-living facility came together in a perfect lost-license storm,) she sold each and every one of those beautiful cars and used the money to pay down her grandkids' student loans as much as she possibly could, because 'nobody should have to start out in debt.' My own payment went from hundreds a month to less than a cell-phone bill. It literally meant that us oldest ones will be able to afford to give her great-grandkids before we're thirty...but at such a cost! If we'd've known she was going to do it, we would've stopped her.

So my brother, sister, cousin and I pooled our money, bought a Honda Odyssey conversion/mobility van with a blown head gasket at auction and spent weeks re-doing the interior in leather and real wood, swapping out the engine, making sure the wheelchair lift runs like a top and putting in a good stereo with speakers tuned for big-band so that when we drive Grandma and her old-lady pals around they can go in style. Brother lives closest, so he drives the 'Grannyvan' thrice a week, and more than once cousin, sister and I have sent extra gas money so he can take them on road trips to see the sights and visit relatives.

Grandma's only critique is that we would get better mileage if we'd found one with a manual transmission, but import conversion vans are already rare as hen's teeth and she loves the color.
