I am humbled and honored to be included for FOTM consideration. Everyone here has some of the best and baddest rides around!
I present to you my 1988 Mustang GT, it has been 10 years this year that I have had the pleasure of owning. Low mileage car? No, she’s 260,000 miles strong. Is she a show queen? No, years of neglect from her prior owner, plus the daily grind of taking me to and from work has her outsides less than pristine. But that hasn’t kept her from placing in car shows (won 3rd place in the 2007 Simpsonville Labor Day car show) or being in a car magazine (5.0 Mustangs 2013 Foxtoberfest coverage). She wears her patina with grace. Is she a high horsepower street or track killer? No, only mods have been 3.73 gears , 5 lug swap and a home fabbed air intake, but she was the street tire bracket class winner at the 2008 SEFB track day at Shadyside!
While she might not be the nicest, or the fastest or cleanest fox around, she makes up for it with dependability and character. Maybe in the next 10 years I will get to finish her up like I should but for now we are just going to keep riding on.
