    Default PJx5x's - 1968 Mustang

    In like 2002, my dad and I had a 1967 Mustang we were restoring. We finished the engine and started the interior, when we needed to sell it for garage space and financial reasons. Well I loved that car and wanted it to drive it when I was 16. So when I turned 15, I started looking for another classic. I found this car in Omaha, Nebraska for a reasonable price, and it was already restored. My dad and I flew there and drove it home on St Patricks Day of '05. I was still 15 for like another 2 months so I didn't drive it that much. The car was originally a 6cyl, 4lug, 3spd, Sunlit Gold coupe. The previous owner restored and painted it, put a 302 V8, C4 auto trans, and 5 lugs on.
