    I had a 75 Mustang back in 1980.

    It burst into flames. Maybe it was the total lack of maintenance. Maybe it was it's pinto DNA. I don't know. But it was a hoot to drive. But so was my VW beetle.

    Cool

    One of my best friends had a '74 with a V6.
    One night in about 1978 we took it down 495 and he had it FLOORED all the way.
    Down a really steep hill we actually hit 90mph.

    That's funny -- my uncle had one too - a '76 I think. He had it parked at work and the neighboring building was getting it's roof re-tarred. Some hot tar spilled onto the Mustang and... wait for it.... it burst into flames....

    I had a '76. I put a 302 out of a '72 F250 into it. It was great in the mountains. I would do another MII in a heartbeat.
