1966 Shelby GT350
Back in 1965, I wrecked my 1965 Mustang Fastback.  I was this beauty in the paper for  $1600 – it took me a month to convince my father that I deserved it.  This blue with white LeMans stripes 1966 Shelby GT350 was purchased from Koons Ford in Virginia by a man who was in the Service.  He sold me
the car when he and his wife were expecting their first baby in 1969 – I was 17 years old and going steady with Bonnie.  I drove it all through high school and to college at the University of Miami.  Bonnie even learned how to drive a clutch in this car - with a
3400-lb. pressure plate, skipping and hopping all around the parking lot for 2 days!
The pony was parked in 1973 when we got married and had children.  We put 3 daughters through college and now can afford to put the car back on the road.  After a little elbow grease and a fresh coat of pain, we’re having fun entering local car shows and traveling to annual SAAC events.
We’ve having fun driving this car in our mid-life crisis (or should I say… I’m having fun -   Bonnie doesn’t drive it any more! )  At SAAC-28, our first National Show, we took home 3rd Place in the Popular Vote Show; last Halloween we dressed up the pony as a P-51 Mustang, propeller & all; we also received the Silver Concours Award at the 2004 National Capital Region Mustang Show.
 
Kevin & Bonnie went to the “Wings and Wheels” show on Kent Island in June 2005.  Here is their “P-51 Mustang” on the tarmac with the rest of the airplanes.  More than a few kids (and adults) asked if they had flown it there!
