Default Scratch One More Thing Off The Bucket List!

The Alberta Mustangs Auto Club has been waiting a very long time for the opportunity to have our cars showcased with a vintage early 1940's P51 Mustang Plane. This plane, along with others including an F15 Hornet Fighter jet, were recently flown into Calgary for a show at the airport. We worked long and hard to arrange the opportunity to have pics of the planes with our cars. Once in a lifetime event I wanted to share with you. I cannot imagine anything cooler than having a Mustang car photographed with a Mustang Plane, a Navy Fighter, a Vintage WW2 Bomber, and a modern Fighter Jet!!

For those of you that do not know, my car is a 1990 7-Up Mustang 5.0 LX Convertible. Ford made 4,000 of these cars, but only 150 Canadian units. Of these 150, only about 35 or so were 5 speed cars, and mine is the only one known to have the graphic equalizer option and short throw shifter. I bought the car from the owner of a Ford Dealer back in 1990, who ordered the car for his wife. However, she did not like the color, believe it or not, and he sold it off the lot to me!! I was so very fortunate to be hand picked by him. IHe knew me because I spent alot of time there looking at Mustangs.The Canadian cars have several mechanical differences from the US ones, such as exhaust, daytime running lights, speedo is KM's, etc. The car is very rare and is now only 2 model years away from being classified as an antique. It is also in pristine condition with 51,000 KM's (31,000 Miles). You could eat off the undercarriage as it has never been driven in rain or snow. It even has the original tires. It is 100% original immaculate survivor car. Back in 1995, I sold the car to my brother, so that I would have money for a down payment on a house, just before I got married to Mrs Squatter. My brother kept it all these years in a garage only driving it to car shows and events. It always placed first in its class. My brother even bought spare parts for it over the years - all parts that are know to wear out such as molding, weather stripping, and even a complete brand new exhaust system.

The car was recently appraised at $3,000 more than I paid for it back in 1990, and qualified for collector car insurance. I now own the car again. My brother sold the car back to me recently for exactly what I sold it to him for 17 years ago. My brother has done many things for me over the years, but this one tops them all and I couldn't love him more for it. The car means so much to me, not only that I was hand picked to nuy the car I loved right from the get go, but because I worked 2 jobs for 4 years to pay for it. I worked night audit at a hotel and as a waiter form 5-10 PM at a very busy restaurant. I love the car today just as much as I did back then.

This Is the Mustang P51 plane!!

Cool pictures. Great story about the car. My first car was an early 70's mustang... it was a piece of crap... but it was my piece of crap and I loved it.

I could have spent all day just looking over those vintage planes.

Thanks bamazav. My brother restored a 1973 convertible back in the 90's. It was a sweet car, but he sold it to buy a 1969 Shelby GT500 Convertible.
