Sometimes it all Goes Your Way

Sometimes everything seems to be going your way. That's the way I feel right now.

My son will be 16 next year. I've been looking for a project car for the two of us to work on this summer that he can drive to school. It's got to be one we can work on and it's got to look good. That means a mid or late 1960's car. I just got off the phone will a fellow who has a 1966 Mustang for sale for $2000. It's got a 6 cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. That means it looks cool, will be easy to work on, will get pretty good mileage and won't be a dragster. Perfection.

We had been looking at Chevelles and Camaros, too, but they all had monster engines and were about three to four times the cost for the project cars.

If you don't remember what a '66 Mustang looks like, here's one totally restored.

I'm jealous!! I'd give almost anything to have a good '65 or '66 Mustang to tinker with.

Hopefully I'm not the officer who gives your son his first ticket....
