Eric, so glad to see you sir ! 😉😃

Was actually getting a little worried to tell you the truth, and knew we
hadn't seen your usual exceptional, and extraordinary pictures lately.
It's awesome to see you on, and see these stunners !!! 😯(y)



Adding in a few more: 🙂

Have to agree Black5, and the Mustang has to have a
connection to the Ford Falcon, and V8 Interceptor that
Mad Max had right?! (y) Always liked those Mustangs
from the 80's, and this one is extra cool !
You are right.

I believe that the original Mustang was built on the same platform as the US Falcon with a shortened wheelbase.

Our first Falcon GT in fact was built using components from the Mustang parts bin including the 289ci V8, 4 speed manual gearbox, steering wheel, bucket seats, road wheels, and more.

By the time the XB came around in 1973, the US link had been mostly lost, and the cars, including engines were unique to our market, (And small export markets like SA and NZ - as CKD), and manufactured locally...

SOoO many watches, SOoO little time...

Doing fine Tom, just busier than usual. ;-) And another hobby has flared up... restoring an old turntable.

That is so cool Black5 ! 😎 (y) Wasn't sure if there was a connection,
but at least there was one for a while. You can see this Mustang really
is paying tribute to that connection. Imagine driving down the road in
one?! Would be so much fun.

Eric, so so happy that everything is fine, and you are making time fly
by with the turntable ! 😃🙂 Was hoping you were just busy. But with
all the craziness going on, was getting nervous that something might
have happened. Am so glad everything is good, or great actually it
looks like. Enjoy sir, and hope everyone is well.

Mrs. Wiggles, yowza, am usually surfing the net for amazing, and
cool cars, but here you actually have them !! 😦😮 Just is terrific,
and they look like show cars to boot sir. You must turn so many
heads with those, and put a smile on not only your face honestly,
but everyone's ! 😀

This is Josephine, my 1954 Austin A30, followed by a picture of my Fiat 124 Spider
