    1967 I started first grade and I was living the life riding my Stingray bicycle. Daddy was in Vietnam fighting the unpopular war and Mamma was twenty-five taking care of her two children.
    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

    Nice Mustang! Always fascinating to recall memories from a past time period in our lives. 1967 - thinking I would have been in the 8th grade riding the 3 speed Royal Crown English Race bicycle that my dad had brought back from England back in the '50's.

      I haven't ever been to England though I wish I could go there one day. My sister lived there a while her husband went to a war college there he's retired Army.

          Outside of Canada, I have never been out of the US. My dad was stationed in England for part of WWII and then on some other tour of duty assignments in the '50's. He retired from the USAF in 1963 whey they wanted to send him to Thailand - he said two wars had been more than enough as he also say active duty during the Korean War.

            I know you must be proud of your Daddy with all his contributions to our country a honor for sure!

              I loved this casting when I first saw it and found it, and still do today. I also found one without the stripes.
              Back in 1971 when I bought my first ever car, I had a choice between a 1967 Mustang GT 390 automatic, just like this one, or a yellow 1968 Mustang GT 390 4 speed. The blue 67 was a little over $200 more because of the automatic transmission they said. Plus. it also had headers and a Holley 4 bbl carb, a Sun Super Tachometer mounted on the steering column and a few other minor mods. It sounded sweet with those headers. My dad said the blue 67 looked like it had been hot rodded and had the crap ran out of it, but I think the real reason was it was $200 more. Back in those days $200 was allot of money...LOL
              I settled for the yellow 68 and learned to drive a 4 speed transmission with it. I loved the blue color much more than the yellow, but the yellow 68 was $1,278.64 and the blue 67 was $1,482.32. Dad made the final decision though.
              I still have the bill of sale for my 68 and written on the back was the price of the 67.




              I also found a blue one without the stripes...



              Excellent choice here Daniel...

                    When I first got my 2005 Mustang GT for a birthday present from my wife I was so pumped driving when I got out of the car my hands would shake and I couldn't hide the excitement on my face that went on for quite a while and even now I do it sometimes. She's one torquey car and I love aggravating the dumbasses who think they have a chance hanging with her.

                        It's hard not to like red.

                          I never get tired of this casting. Though there have been some really nice '67-8 Mustangs made, I think AW has done the best one.

                              And it's hard to decide, red or blue or both?
