50 Years.

So I'm running around and trying to find stuff for the 1964.5 Mustang. They were all titled as 1965's. I ran across this. This little book was everything FoMoCo (shorthand for Ford Motor Company) thought you needed to know about your new 1965 Mustang. 

Granted that cars today are a bit more complex and have many more options than an AM radio. Still though. Here is the packet for a 2015. 

I jokingly say I have not read it. That is not true. After I picked the car up the SD card for navigation was missing and no owners manual. Called the dealership and they handed me this. After that I found all the stuff already in the trunk. Perhaps that is why FoMoCo put the graphic on the top of this packet to tell the dealership where to put the thing =)

Huh. Go figure

For a person that says they are not a long gun person there seems to be a lot of these around here!

Whoops! My bad!

In my last post I incorrectly identified a Winchester Classic model 94 as a Model 9422. 

The Model 94 is chambered in 30-30. 

HERE is is Model 9422. Props to my Father for calling me out on the error. 

Hey it could happen ya know =) The people responsible for this error have been sacked.

A Rifle!

A Winchester Model 9422. In .22 WMR. This thing has been around for over 40 years. I remember shooting this rifle in my early teens. Glad it is still here.

One of These is Easy to Get. One is Not.

So you can blow in to a Ford Dealership and have one of these proudly displayed on the passenger side dash with a decent credit score. 

Easy. "Since 1964". 

Much harder it is to actually have a Mustang from 1964. A true piece of history. 

This one has been through a lot in the 32 years my Family has had it. When Lawyers get involved it gets ugly. Finally after all of that 25 years later it is running and soon to be ready for a closeup. 

Make no mistake, this needs to be done right. I am not an MCA fan boy, but seeing people push cars out of trailers makes me sad. If you have the car, drive it! OTOH, this car is very special and all due actions need to be taken during the cosmetic restoration. 

Soon. Very soon. 

And that is part of the fact I have not been Blogging. I apologize.
