Could he provide a current picture of it? Would be cool to see it today!
I almost bought a 70 Mach 1 yellow with white interior in CA back in 86. Just needed a new C6 tranny which I couldn't afford. Would love to have it now!

What's funny is everyone going on about their business and a smashed car within a stone's throw. Not like today with camera phones clicking away, crowds and media.

Holy crap! I just noticed that in the color pic with the close-up of the T-Bird....check out where those propane tanks are mounted on that Ford pickup camper shell. In a head-on wreck those things would become missiles.

My 64 1/2 Mustang from back in 1989. Someone pulled the D code 289 out and shoehorned a 351W without beating the shock towers. It was a real beater but my future wife loved the car too.


At one time someone sectioned a rear from a 66 on it, cutting it in half to do so. It still had the generator using some fabricated bracket to clear the 351W.
