    We have our annual car show this year, and I forget what years typically are grouped together in the late models from 2000 on. Where is the break in years for a body style change?

    I think it's 79-88. 89 got really boxy.

    79-86 have 4 headlights... 87-93 have the euro style headlights... 88 and 89 are virtually identical from what I recall. I don't see 88-89 being in different classes.

    79-93 age in the same class at all the shows I have been to. Very little changes from 79-86 and the same said for 87-93.

    I usually break them down further before giving out the awards.

    I have another question. What the heck is a 2013 California Special GT500? Is it a regular Mustsng coupe or a Shelby?

    Laurie, do I need to pre register my 68, or can I just show up? When should I get there and what is the cost? Thanks

    You can register the day of the show. If could fax or e-mail the entry to me today, it would be $25. It's $30 the day of the show. What body style is your 68? I can add you to my parking plan now. My fax is 620-1480 and the e-mail is aztlan@theriver.com. Then just pay on Saturday.
     
  17. A figment of the owners imagination. It's either one of the other.

    That's what I thought. I put him in the regular Mustang class.

    I had a 78 Mustang II fastback with the T-tops and little bitty slot mags, and it was as much a Mustang as the 65's, which were Falcons with modified sheet metal. I worked for a subsidiary of Ford during the Mustang II and early Fox Body era. I got a new executive lease car every year and I have to say that the V6 Mustang II was a lot more fun to drive than the little yellow 80 hatchback Fox Body I had with a turbocharged 2.3L. Aside from the spooling sound from the turbo, there wasn't much to recommend it, and it looked like a family coupe despite the special Michelin TRX tires and wheels. The 78 Mustang II was black with a bright red interior and it got lots of compliments from people in parking lots (the purpose of the executive lease program in the first place.) I don't think anyone ever noticed, or commented on, the 80 Fox Body despite it's canary yellow paint job.

    Well, Laurie, my 68 is a convertible, but it looks like I missed the registration deadline. I have been playing with the projection fuel injection that I just installed. No problem though, I'll just cruise by and enjoy the show as a spectator.

    I'd like to come anyway, just to see if I can get anymore info on the Caravan to Vegas! Thanks
