Who is behind Ponysite.de and how do we get our News?
Thank you, dear readers....for jumping the 560.000 visits mark! Counter defect, will restore it some time ...
This is one of the very few Mustang sites, that is online almost since the Internet became a public media in April 1993.

John D. Canfield wrote a very interesting article on his scale model project for Ford Performance.
Most Mustangers have seen the bright yellow 1969 Boss 302 prototype pictured everywhere including Donald Farrs book.
John always dreamt of building this rare car with the vermillion interior.
Read the article here
Most of us never spotted this maybe...only a few who saw the surviving car at a show, where it was hardly recognizable. In 2013 we first got aware of the surviving prototype after exchanging Kevin Knedlers pics with the Road Racing Registry. Ed Ludtke had more details on it already from his mate Mark Corich.
How did it look like before the flares were added?
Here is a picture from 1973.
The other Boss 302 prototype - one 1:1 survivor and one that
resembles it a bit more, even though it is scaled down. Built with patience
and finished during Covid19 in early to mid 2020.
Picture above Kevin Knedler, Mid-Ohio, 6 hoursIMSA race 1975.
The so called color palette prototype was scapped, but then sold to the Mroz brothers as a Body in white (former CobraJet equipped car) acc. to Ed Ludtkes Mustang Road Racing Registry. Richard and David Mroz raced the Boss prototype in some SCCA races and turned it into an IMSA racer for a longer period. Pictured here in 1975 by Kevin Knedler, who lived near the Mid-Ohio track. It appeared first time out at the 100 years Ford anniversary in Dearborn.
The Boss color palette prototype as of 2013. Still in IMSA race dress. It was shown at the Boss reunion in Carlisle 2013 by the then and current owner Mark Corich. Steve Francis picture.
Mark - living in Michigan turned up again in 2019.
Donald Farr signed the pages from his book for Mark, but could not talk to him later on unfortunately. But he took these 2 pictures while walking through the Building T at Carlisle in 2019 for us.

Most of you got alreaday aware of the oncoming Mecum sale of the John Atzbach collection. John has certainly collected - and thus preserved - a very selective and precious variety of 13 Mustang/Shelby diamonds including 1 of 4 Shelby convertibles, most famous R-Shelby SFMR002 and drag car amongst others. What remained a bit out of focus in the past was the huge collection of 18.000 items of memorabilia. Those bits and pieces need a good home as well and is even interesting for the average Joe, who wants to enhance his shelf ...like me.
Have a look at the already started Mecum memorabilia sales.
When paging through the lots, I noticed for example 427 SOHC valve covers, B429 cylinder heads and many more items you may wish to have an opportunity to get your hands on.
2,800 lots of the memorabilia will be sold in 22 separate "On Time" (online only) auctions. The bidding for these lots started yesterday. The various 22 auctions end on different dates between 7/11 and 7/17.Most of the things in my collection are related to Shelby's and Shelby American; but I do have several hundred lots that are Lamborghini, including some extremely rare factory / dealer signs and memorabilia.
Indeed, yet for us overseas guys, some items may be just too bulky, so the little crown jewels are also of importance. Check it out and start with the first lot here..
Very interesting items passed the auction block like Roy Lunns Mustang I press binder, rare GT(40) build pictures from his archive and many more items.
Stay tuned today for SFMR002

We seem to have missed quite some important news over the years. But others as well like isomustangs.org who obiously ended news in 2017. Yet, Ponysite is still arond and survives all periods of more or less Mustang enthusiasm somehow.
Did you know that 2 of the known Bond Diamond Mach 1 Mustangs got sold meanwhile?
#160938 which was the so-called Alley car
in the Dezer collection was sold last year after having been transferred to
Orlando museum, where most of the Dezer collection ended up. Initially
it was planned to sell the complete Bond collection from Dezer Miami museum
already in 2014 for 33million Euro (54 cars), but that did not work out. The
Orlando museum had some problems and other influences made it impossible to
continue the effort. So they had to sell single cars to make money quickly.
We know where the 351cui equipped Diamond Mach 1 ended up meanwhile, but we keep it hidden for some more days or weeks, until we receive the approval by the new owner.
The second "known but often discussed" Diamond Mustang is Mike Alamedas 429cui version, in which the new owner had enough trust in receiving all the documentation from Mike. His own research and further bits of information collected convinced him he has got the right thing as well. The car is now in Australia.
As you may know there were at least 6 used for the movie.

R.I.P. Gale Halderman, Designer of the final production Mustang
Sad to hear he passed away at the age of 87 due to liver cancer. I met him at the 50th Anniversary in Charlotte 2014 at the Panel of Heros seminar.
As our friend John says:
"It is truly a sad day for all of us, but heaven is going to
have some really cool cars from here on out."
Very true, we all will meet once again up there to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of our Mustang. Keep some memories of good ol' times for then.
And yes, there was one more 427 powered
streetfighter in a 1968.
Of course we know about the HM built 427s, but a Stallion 427 built by Mainway Ford in Canada was only a rumour so far. We finally got the confirmation from the genuine mechanic who worked with John Petrie, Paul Paterson. Robin McQueen updated us about the good 'ol times.
Stay tuned for more on the hot ride they prepared and enjoyed actually in 1968, not in 1967.

My friend John visited the Lawman Boss 429 party at Marcus Anghel Restorations place. Thank you, John and thank you, Marcus for the outstanding work...
and to all...sorry for the delay of updating this website.

1968 427 sideoiler Medium riser in a 1967 Mustang
Most 1968 Mustang owners dream of this combination. Svein, a friend of mine up north realized it in a 3 years lasting project. I hope to get a ride soon.
The Sideoiler 427 came out of a 1968 Shelby Mustang, where it made room at one time for a 427 Cammer engine, the dream of that Shelbys owner, so actually 2 dreams were realized in this chain.
The last owner of the Sideoiler sold it only because he needed a new house after a long period of owning it. A fortune for Svein, as they are not easy to get on the market these days.
Gary announces the official hand-over of the T-5 registry to Mark Cordery in the Mustang Times latest issue. Mark is a long time friend of both Gary and myself and owner of his own T-5 of course.
Let's wish Mark all the best and for sure we will cooperate the same way as before.
September 3rd, 2019/Update Oct. 18th
The T-5 guru returned to Germany once more in 2019. The final visit before handing over the T-5 registry to a new guy.
There are some names that seem to be present in Mustang circles since the early days of the Mustang mania. When Gary Hanson bought his first Mustang via the telephone, he thought he would get a 66 GT. He bought it sight unseen for quite a cheap amount (in our todays view), when a relative told him about the Fastback being on sale. After some more questions Gary learned that the emblem was a bit different than that of a GT. It said T-5.
Researching the paperworld (there was no Internet at that time) he learned that Ford had to market the Mustang in Germany with it's early project name T-5 due to the namerights of Mustang belonging to Krupp and Kreidler at that time.
Since then - over 40 years he is running the T-5 registry for us.
I was fortunate to meet him again at the heartbeat of Ford in Germany, which is located in Cologne. And I hope that we will meet again in the next years. We visited the Motorworld, a newer facility hosting the Michael Schumacher F1 collection and more and he was very much impressed of the high-level, but also high-priced classic german cars for sale there. Next to a number of luxury gadgets and a wooden Gullwing Mercedes in 1:1 format we had our selfies, but to the left see him staying right in front of the the Dom (cathedral) of Cologne just amidst a number of flag style chalk circles.
He certainly has accumulated hundreds of T-5s from all over the world in his registry, thus this picture hopefully tell his lifestory in its own way. We wish him and Linda all the best for the next travels.

Readers of Ponysite.de know already Designer Hans A. Muth
as the one who was influential in the european game for the Capri. In the
race for the better concept he designed amongst other concepts Taunus/Capri
related design variations..
Next in his book of fame is the BMW GS80/RS90 and RT100 bike and
Laverda bikes. There is no room here for naming more, but within October 2019 we can page
through 182 pages of design history. Since 58 years Hans A. Muth is
driven by creativity and still active with his own company. I wish he
would sit down and design the Generation VII of the Mustang, if he
BTW Hans A. Muth was of course communicating with Phil Clark back then, when Phil was in Dagenham working on many projects. We (Holly Clark and myself) had been in touch with him more than a decade ago already for clarification of several diaries entrys.
I am not sure if this link will work for overseas or european orders, and don't forget that the book is in german only.
Interesting for us Mustang maniacs are several never published Mustang designs of the past period and more interesting Capri designs.
Lookin forward to receiving my ordered copy.

Yes, occasionally we still get rare stuff in the mailbox.
This is MY and his mom, who worked at the Michigan International Speedway. We are just trying to sort out which MIS ARI Pace car this actually is. The real deal 428CJ or an unknown later promo car. The story speaks for the 428CJ itself.
For sure today nobody would let M.Y. jump on the hood, if he ever finds it again.
If you have any more leads, let us know. We know that - although the Michigan cars should have been green, the pace car actually was orange with the Michigan logo on the rear, press photos show the same orange cars, both Fastback and the convertible. ...to be researched further.
June 22nd, 2019 - June 30th.2019
Borning #3 is filmed just now in Norway, Sweden and Germany. The "fast and funny" road movie already convinced many scandinavian Muscle car enthusiasts, part one is available in various languages meanwhile.
Crazy stunts were done in Duesseldorf and Cologne by Action Concept with Richard Andersen and his team Preben, Karl and Ole from Norway to name just a few. Magic Motors from Germany, Boss Hoss and Henning Baum joined the gang.
The haven area of Duesseldorf was one spot during the first weekend.
Next spot was a gas station and a car garage with more stunt scenes being shot the following weekend on a bridge in Cologne.
The yellow Ponies of Ponyparts.no are very famous in Europe. 3 of them were used for the movie. Richard runs the business for decades and is an active drag racer up there in Norway. The movie is financed with 6,1 million Euro. The actors are norwegian, swedish and german ones. Alexandra Maria Lara acts (known to car maniacs from the movie Rush) along with Anders Baasmo Christiansen and "Nina" aka Ida Husøy.
I had the chance to meet the team at 2 and a 1/2 film locations.1/2 because I was on the other side of the containers in the haven. It was again amazing, how many hours are necessary to make 1 minute movie perfect in the end, at least for further editing in the directors cut
The Hot Rod plays a special role in the movie. Be prepared for a big surprise for the final race. Ponyparts.no also layed their hands on this blown engine to make it a unique Ford powerplant of its own.
The engine in the main hero car had been a Boss 302 previously in the series, now was replaced for this sequel with a larger bore, not stroked high-revving drag motor, that puts out even more power, says Richard. The drag scenes in the haven of Duesseldorf prooved that Richard actually had to slow down in many areas, not using the full potential of the car. Expect more soon on this site with related permissions given.
Car #1 and Car #2 in the container logistic area in Duesseldorf. First one has real rubber on the lower rear fender, second one got black paint instead and is an automatic. (Picture courtesy Thorsten T. on FB)
Stay tuned for more on car #3 later on. For those that saw it here already, we agreed to remove it for the sake of the movies storyboard, when it hits the cinemas.

Mustang Fever in Europe.
The Annual Mustang show organised by Adelbert from the Mustang Garage in Heusden near Zolder attracted 813 Mustangs from Belgium, Nederland, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, UK and France. A very good result and success. See my video from the Saturday, the weather prediction was not very good, so the share of Mustang V and VI was higher than on Sunday.
April 10th, 2019
Peter Brocks latest cooperation with Mikael Tarne and Bastian Ebener and their team finally was on display. Next to the PBX2299 finished last year, the PBX2287 was presented for the first time in public at the Martin Kölnberger booth at the Techno Classica 2019.
During the press day, the couple of reincarnations from the most famous race cars (3D digitized from the original cars and made perfect in their original shape by the team ) were shown.
Note the different higher roofline and steeper windshield shape, the positions of the air inlet and many other differences, which Mikael (on left) was eager to point out to each interested party.
You will certainly here more of Bastian and Mikael soon.

The Stallion was a special Mustang from Mainway Ford in Canada. Only a few went into the hands of customers.
We reported about some of the owners on this site earlier.
We just got contacted by someone, who could get a few remaining memorabilia items, probably (by best knowledge, since we have little proof) key fob and a plaques from the 1967 Stallion.
Are you interested? Pass us a line with your max. amount you'd like to put on the table. Location of goodies is CDN.

At the age of 77 Tania Mallet died unfortunately.
Rest in Peace.
Tania is well known as the Bond girl in Goldfinger driving the white Mustang convertible up the Furka pass.
We remind you of her with a picture in another white convertible that she drove in 2008 at the same location.
The Mustang was borrowed from Peter Lanz in Switzerland.

Chasing Bullitt featuring Andre Brooks and Augie Duke amongst others is now available in the US and Canada via online prime video vendors such as Amazon or iTunes.
Europe following soon in April.
Make sure you download it (rent for 6.99 or buy for 12.99).
It is worth to see, we had reported already almost 1,5 years ago about it, when it was presented at a film festival. Now available to the public.
Thanks to Andre for keeping us updated all the time.
A second time around in Germany
Alex Kilpatrick from Canada donated this T-5 back to Germany....well not really, it was appraised properly and subsequently bought by a company in Bochum/Germany, which rents out Mustangs and other car for fun trips.
So if you are coming to Germany, Bochum is your place to rent a classic Mustang - aka T-5 - in central Germany.
Alex is now thinking about a trip to reunite at least for a week once in the future.
I always wondered why no one does a proper Mustang Milano scale model.
Except of course my friend and model builder Bob Sifferd with his high-level unique scale model in 1:18, on which he is still working. Bob found, this new scale model on the right side from Autocult deserves some attention. More interesting is that a german manufacturer released it as part of a special series in late 2018
I only wish they had chosen another scale ratio, not the 1:43 size. But o.k, it is well detailed.
Acc. to Bob it looks excellent and well executed, when looking at the pictures only. It sells for close to 90 Euro over here and you can get it in almost every country around the world (in the US from ACME). Check out ebay for a quick buy, if you can't wait.

Shelby stories are always a bit more interesting than the average Mustang stories, but this one is even more special.
Some may remember the custom built metfalflake green 1968 GT500 #0828 that Jeff could buy a year ago from Fritz Stubanus former Shelby collection.
Jeff made a contact to Peter Disher, known as the Coralsnake and could buy a 428 PI that was once in a 1968 GT500 #413, until it was separated from it and built into a Thunderbird in the 70ies.
Read Petes story about the 428 PI #413 engine.
Jeff was happy to get the engine (here still in the crate) for his GT500. The marriage and restoration of these two historic items will make up a very peculiar Shelby story.
Below shows the old engine (a 1969 302 with some Shelby components, that was put in for hillclimb races) being taken out in March 18 out of the heavily customized Shelby (done in the 80ies by Fritz).
Jeff will restore it back to factory status.
The Shelby American #116 Winter 2019 issue is a special one.
It contains an article I could write together and about Bastian Ebener and Mikael Tarne, who run the Daytona Coupe recreation project with Peter Brock.
All 3 of them edited the raw text and Rick Kopec made the german and danish touch go for a readable version as well as eliminated the historical glitches, we put in to test his knowledge. He made it of course.
The result is a 12 pages article plus an intro on the first page and moreover the cover itself with one of the prof. pics from Tim Upitz.
Make sure you become a member of SAAC to read the full article. And the rest of course, the issue contains also Craig Conleys part of the story of 5R107 and many more interesting articles.
"C'est un hommage a la vie"
Claude Lelouch just started filming a sequel of the famous 1966 movie Une homme et une Femme. (A man and a woman). With the original main actors in their roles.
Joel Lefebrve is the proud owner of the tribute Mustang in the #184 dress that is used for the new movie. Pic from the actual filming last week in Deauville.
Paul sells one of the 25 only Tour de France 2014 Mustang Specials,
which were ordered by Edsel Ford to be built by Holman in Charlotte.
I visited them during the 50th Anniversary and the car is indeed a special breed with its 2013 Boss 302 style tune.
Paul has just put 3600 miles on the odometer, so it is still a collector car.
Asking price is 65.000 US Dollar, location US.
Let us know if you want to know more and we'll pass yr request on to Paul.

The car that is claimed by the owner to be SFM 5R539 was on display at the Autoworld in May/June 2018 at a special show "Les Belges au Mans" and I missed it. What a pity.
Since the car is still not authenticated...those that have taken more pics, pls. send us a note. We are very interested in any that was taken on site or during the set-up of the exhibition.

Venezuelan Mustangs like this are of particular interest. My friend Steve Francis parked next to one recently.
Dave Hammar ran the South of the Border registry for a while and listed a number of them. Not leas than 213 were made in late 1966 of the 1967 model. This one was made in December 1966 if we read the decoder I found myself back then in an old Ford book.
VIN AJO1GP13737 stands for a Coupe assembled in Caracas/Venezuela in December 66 (P). Dave had registered 5 back then on his site. This car came originally in white (M), with a 289/4V (A) and a 2B blue interior.
Nathan Loos is the proud owner. He tells us that his grandfather bought the car new in South America. A sort of buck tag is visible on the radiator support and it shows a 5 and 1 for the axle and trans, which was rather standard for the registered cars.

Shelby EXP500 "LIttle Red" found in Texas
7R01S138947 was the recorded VIN for teh special engineering car that Shelby ordered from Ford with a 428 Cobra Jet engine. Connecting a few knowledgable people Craig Jackson (BJ) had initiated a research with Kevin Marti and Jason Billups and Paul Newitt to find the owner of this car.
Craig already owns the other Shelby Coupe, the Green Hornet EXP500.
Through the social media the owner of Little Red could be retrieved finally, once his name was known.
Little Red was said to have been crushed early on, but insiders know that this term is sometimes applied to cars just in order to prevent fakes being done and avoid unnecessary authenticating processes. There are more cars out there like that, even Shelbys.
The car was presented in Dearborn at a private dinner before the Woodward Dream Cruise started.
Picture: Brian Styles (VIN), Jason Billups.
Thanks to Pete Disher you can follow the further research on his site.
When Peter Brock signs a Daytona Coupe, it must be something
Actually this is the only exact endorsed recreation of CSX2299 worldwide.
It was presented this last weekend at the Nuerburgring Classics in Germany.
The background story is that new exact copies can be ordered now. Mikael Tarne obtained the rights to recreate the 6 cars from digital scan data.
Each of the original is different in its body shape and some people just like to have the best copy, but to race it.
The 6 originals, which are probably worth 4 million each are likely not to be seen again on racetracks after their last Goodwood appearance in 2015.
Thus the development of FIA approved copies makes pretty much sense. Peter Brock monitored the building closely on site in Germany and inspected it at the Ring. With his signature he certified the first one built by AMMAS in Stolberg as PBX-2299-1.
PBX-2287 ist the next one due in January 2019. Stay tuned for more exclusive information.
Peter and Gayle Brock visited the Ring on June 15th to 17th, 2018 and had a good time at this base camp of true racers. The Classics is a tribute to the good old times, where no auction houses and caterers block the place for enthusiasts. Instead there is ample place for just roll-on-roll off racers as well as even the more expensive CAN-AM racing guild.
Each of them just wants to have undisturbed fun in driving on the edge of their skills. This was the place to be for a historic moment.
Tavelling back in time is mankinds desire and for sure a real Kick for
Well known Dan McDonald took us and now you with him back to the TASCA 505 presentation in their showroom. We will soon add those pictures to our Tasca 505 page.
We had hopes that it would already pop up again at the 50th Anniversary in Charlotte, but signs may indicate, that it will be displayed in the Mustang Owners Preview museum and be shown in June, 8. to 10th 2018 or even earlier at their Mustang Day, alternatively at the next MCA National event. Stay tuned.

The winning Tour de France car 1964 (in its class) from Alan Mann DPK7B was definitely wrecked in 1978.
For a long time it was thought to have ended up in the US or in Canada.
Recently we found out - based on Jan Alsemgeests research - that indeed the Mustang returned after its entry in the Daytona February 1965 race by Skip Scott to Europe. Erik Zurbriggen pointed me to a ad and some indications that identify the car clearly.
It turned up after a sale at Alan Brown Racing and was driven then by Jack Brabham, first race at Oulton Park.
After several races through 65 and 66 it was sold to Ronny Lyon, who painted it maroon with gold stripes, then to the Frami Racing Team and Han Akersloot. It went afterwards to the van der Ende racing team. In 1978 it got wrecked in Den Hague.
Congrats to Jan for his persistency over years to research his idea in depth and who published this article in the TMCN club mag. Based on this we've found more evidence of that the story is true. Stay tuned for the full story.
Visiting the Alan Mann Racing Team facilities at the Fairoaks Airport was another highlight of my Mustang adventures. Being allowed to browse through a few folders from 1964 and lurking around in the garage was a pleasure and thrill at the same time.
Thanks to Henry and Tom Mann hoods were left open and I could picture how cars were modified back then by the mechanics. There is still history to smell, especially since DPK5B was present and many vintage race cars.
The article appears in our the winter issue of the FMCoG.
After 25 years of Mustang ownership and 23 years of editing the club magazine, I have decided to take a rest to allow other topics in the magazine and younger people to express themselves in a print magazine.
Still you can follow my Mustang adventures here. I am just planning to ride my own horse more often.
A Steve McQueen actor drives up at a Ford dealer in late September 2017 to order his new Ford. What car? C'mon, that's easy.
The 50th Anniversary of the movie Bullitt is near and the 2018 Bullitt is the one Steve would drive away with, what else? Going there with his original ride and trade it in. Meant to be a fictional story during planning, reality overtook us, it will become reality January 14th. 2018.
A thrilling commercial exercise filmed in the UK and yours truely was on site and could take a lot of behind the scenes shots.
See my first ever road movie action trial here.
Thanks to Chris How and David Redhead and Hendy Fords (Horsham/West Sussex) collaboration.
Quite some time ago, we predicted the new Holman Moody S550, after a test car was spotted at a char show. The car is now in full swing. Make sure you check this out.
It comes with several performance options offering an order range of 460, 640 or 740 HP.
427 SOHC engines are quite scarce and of extreme value today. There are a number around in Europe. This one turned up in Sweden in the early 80ies bought by a drag racer directly from Holman-Moody and put into his Hemi-Shelby.
After almost 30 years of storage, it finally changed hands to a friend of him and true collector, who had already a 427 mediumriser, which he installed into his latest 67 S-code project car and now he is busy on restoring this 427 SOHC engine for his next project. Stay tuned - we will keep you updated, where it goes in, but it may take quite some time, even years.
|Á few Shelbys got the custom treatment in the 70ies and 8oies, this registered 1968 GT500 quite early, as it was imported to do hillclimb sessionis and the car needed wider fenders. The past owner mounted some from 65/66 and had a lot of fun. At a later date this car went into the collection of a widely known Mustang/Shelby enthusiast in the south of Germany, who passed away some years ago. One after the other the cars are coming up on the market and we are glad it went into the hands of a skilled by in Luxembourg.||With all the help he can get, he will transform it into an ex-factory car, though some may regret that the custom touches may disappear. Every car has its history, this defintely has, yet it will be the better challenge for the current owner to return it to factory glory.|
Xaver Weber owns this 1973 Q-code T-5 export car, which he bought for under 1300 Dollar at an auction 2 decades ago. Xaver owns a garage in Belgium, so he took his time to do it right.
Once the "Total Surrender" (1of 3) monument - made after the famous photo taken by Viktor Jorgensen in New York was relocated to his neighbourhood, he drove up there to take this very nice shot.
A rare sight for sure.
July 29th, 2017
One mystery solved: Anthony Walsh kept the early 1964 T-5 emblem in his drawer for 52 years, after his father took it off the car soon after the delivery on the 4th. of January 1965. It has no casting or engineering no on the back.
We could verify it with early press car pictures from Ford Germany and another early August 1964 car. Good to have clear pictures at least by now. Thanks to Anthony for preserving the history and of course the car itself, which is still in his ownership.

A new Mustang book in german language
comes out from Dani Heye by October 2017. Little is known yet, but
the Klasing publisher dares the Mustang Market with 12o pages of the fastest
pony of the world.
It promises testimonials of genuine players, archive material as well as spectacular photoshoots. We'll see.
Reserve it at Amazon.de.
RIP Eric Broadley (May 29th, 2017)
The Quiet Man
When Ford was looking for the rigth people, chassis and engagement to beat Ferrari, Eric Broadley was the man that got into the game with his Lola GT MK6.
Unfortunately the deal did not brought satisfaction to both parties visions, so Eric dropped out after a year and returned to his core business.
Still he can be considered the most important jumper wire to get Ford into things, when they had no clue of real racing cars in Europe aside from suspension simulaton tools and windtunnels experiments, which actually failed with the appearance of the first inhouse designed GT40 bodies....in Le Mans. Yet Ford did its homework soon after.

Sorry for little news and your patience, but I was really busy in my job for the past monthes.
This weekend I enjoyed our 36th. annual FMCoG Mustang meeting in Hattingen, an old ironworks place that has been turned into a museum. A very nice location offering hundreds of scenic photo opportunities for all participants and professional photographers.
Felix and his 1965 T-5, Felix was all day looking for the proper hotspots of taking pics for his feature article and for sure cover shots.
Each corner of the building had another set-up that attracted photographers
From the top of the oven (this is just first level) you could take marvellous shots. This is the 1967 50th anniversary area.
187 participants joined the meeting. It was a club internal vintage Mustang (1964-1973) meeting only. Just a few club members younger Mustangs got into the security area.
February 16th, 2017
Jeroen from the Netherland presents us his Boss 429 in our next club mag.
It is just undergoing a lot of detailing and we follow along with some before and afterwards comparisons.
Always a nice change to our "normal" bread and butter Mustangs, but then again the owner behind the car counts.
Stay tuned for more later about KK22XX.

Ever heard of the Ford GT 85?
It was obviously another Ford concept car that clearly features ideas of the De Tomaso Mangusta like the rear engine access doors.
I had to compose two pics in one to get a somewhat clear picture, so excuse some fuzzy parts in the picture.

The 1979 Mustang was the last model that was sold as a T-5 in Germany.
Or to be exact, those build prior to the 31st. of December 1978.
Ronnies #79 5.0 even got the rare Cobra package in his combination and we are wondering, if there are any more 1979 T-5 Cobras out there out of the 189 T-5s, we could narrow down the last 78 period exports down to 41, so that would make probably less than a dozen for the Cobra T-5, although they were quite popular back then.
Drop us a line if you know of one around you. We are just now browsing our registry for the past entries, where we may have missed to ask for the Cobra package.
Of course Kevin Marti could tell us and research is triggered.
I am sure we have an answer soon.
