Re: Mustang Makeover

Since I do not have a WSJ subscription I could not read the whole article.

So I did some searching and found this:

Re: Mustang Makeover

That is okay some papers, like the NYT you can visit 20 times a month online before you need to get a subscription, or register.

I expect sooner or later all newspapers will require everyone to register. Our local paper does on some articles and if you have a subscription you can get around that.

Okay anyway the additional article I found is this what the WSJ was indicating?

Re: Mustang Makeover

I would not buy the 2015 as does not appear to have any trunk space for my gear. I will be hinting in Fall, to sell my 06 for new one...12 or 13 black. I finally saw my friends 67 Shelby Cobra in his garage last night, which he has had since 73. 430 HP but says it is probably closer to 500 HP with cam and polished ports. He was working on replacing the valve cover gaskets. He has a 2010 Shelby Cobra GT 500, too. He has no intentions of selling the 67. He retired from GM when they closed the plant here in town 3 years ago. I was in shock seeing his 67 after pulling the whole cover off and got to touch it!

The 2010 is parked in front of the 67 in his garage and was working on the valve cover gaskets last night. He said he has not had the 67 running for a time, but is working on it to get it going again. I did not ask him for time frame. Otherwise it is buried in the rear end of the garage with little light. Also, has piles of tools and tires in that section. I will ask him next Thursday or Friday when I will see him at his home, if I can get some pictures of it in his garage. All he has to do is back out the 2010 which he drives regularly. I can get pictures of the front end and under the hood if he has everything reconnected...etc. I did ask him about if it needs 102+ Octane and said he gets 104 Octane in town for 7 or 8 bucks a gallon. I will try and remember next Thursday or Friday as I am picking him up in my measly 06. Car is deep blue with white racing stripes with other Shelby exterior fiberglass kit. Says the hood is fiberglass which was pretty advance in those days. Has the side rear air scoops that are functional and he explained that and I forgot. I had forgotten over the past 5 years he had this car. I had never been in his garage until last night. He is a real pack rat too!
