I want to win the car at online casinos. I have never played in an online casino, but I have seen some commercials for them. It seems like they are a lot of fun, and I would love to win the car that they are always giving away as a prize. I don’t know if it is actually possible to win the car, but I am going to try my best at this page.

I can tell I’ve been on therapy from myself. And my mom, not just I. I didn’t know how to do it and how to deal with it, we had issues with relationships. I therefore hope they’ll save your relationship, if there are problems too, if they save our marriage. See the pair therapy strategies https://calmerry.com/couples-therapy/ for that reason. I’m really happy this has supported us, we’ve felt the rush of love and strength to live our lives, and even no need to go anywhere with the online therapy.

What a great video!!! First, love the car, love the wheels (torque thrust?), and love the steering wheel! I have an ivy green 65 convertible…4 speed, 4bbl A-code, with a palomino pony interior. A work in progress that I’ve owned for 23 years that will hopefully be done very soon. I feel the same exact way when I drive the car… I put the top down and just drive for like an hour and I listen to the car, think about life, and my cares just melt away.

I really enjoyed watching this video….made me want to take a drive.

Great video. I can relate to this owner. My very first car at age 15 was a 1967 Mustang Fastback. Years later, I managed to find a 1968 Mustang Fastback and build it the way I wanted. Great suspension, 5 speed and a 400+ horsepower motor make this car amazing fun.

Had a 65 just like that. Set up very similarly. Silver with blue stripes, same rims and interior. Loved it. Sold it to a dealer in New Orleans. A few months later got a call from the guy who he sold it to in the UK! He sent me a picture of MY car in his driveway or whatever they call it over there. It was painful, but help with college tuition. Miss it. Great car and video. Cheers!

Very similar to my story. I bought a ’65 Mustang fastback at age 16 in 1977 for $450.00. The car had a very hard life before I got it. Pittsburgh winters had taken a toll on the body requiring gallons of Bondo and fiberglass . It spend my sophomore and junior high school years in various shades of primer while the work continued.

There were no reproduction parts back then so everything had to be sourced from parts cars and scrap yards. I replaced the interior with the Pony upgrade from a car purchased for $100.00 and finally saved up enough for a MAACO paint job in my senior year in Vintage Burgundy over a black and white interior.

A few weeks after graduation I ran into the back of a brand new Chevy wagon that had stopped on a highway entry ramp. The Mustang was sold to pay for the damages to the Chevy. The search for another Mustang didn’t pan out and I bought a ’69 Olds 442 to take to college.

Many cars later in October 1997, I found a ’64 1/2 Mustang convertible in the hands of the sister of the original owner with 160k on the odometer. The car had been a daily driver all its life and needed everything

Stripped down to the shell and 9 months of work and my modified Mustang was ready with a rebuilt 289, T-5 Motorsport 5 speed. Upgrades included a color change from Rangoon Red to Midnight Turquoise, a new Pony interior, GT fog lights and exhaust, reproduction Styled Steel wheels and a nice stereo. twenty years since it was finished and I still drive it
every chance I get.

It sure is a lot easier to do one now than it was i the ’70s.

I always love to hear these stories of love and devotion between the owner and its car.

May that Mustang continue to bring you such good moments in these strange times we live in.

Cheers , from Portugal
