Ford Mustangs

1965 to 1973

The Original Pony Car


Click on the photos to make them larger


While I have liked trains since my earliest memory, my first true love had 4 wheels. At the age of 15, I was at the beginning of my “motorhead” period. 5 Mustangs including 2) 1970 Boss 302s and a 1968 Shelby GT350 resided within 2 blocks of me over the next 10 years. My FIRST LOVE was a 1969 Mach 1. The Mustang below in not my car. I found the photos on the internet here. But it has the perfect 1969 Mach 1 look to me. It is Candy Apple Red with the Mach 1 Stripes, the Shaker Scoop, rear window slats, rear trunk spoiler, and Magnum 500 wheels. Simply stated it is everything a 60s Muscle car should be.

I like Mustangs that are stock looking. The above Mustang pulled that off very well but still has a Tri-Power 427 stuffed under the hood. There was the whole Ford vs. Chevy thing going on through High School. The Muscle Car era was still going strong in 1980. But you will not ever convince me that any Camaro interior could come close to the (even then) classic styling of the Pony Interior of the 1965 & 1966 Mustangs.


My Mustangs


My first car was a 1965 coupe I bought for $300.00. It was sunk in the mud in the back of a body shop in Gloucester NJ. I will add photos of that car when I find them. I sold that and bought a 1973 F150 pickup, then shortly thereafter bought my 1966 convertible from my father’s boss. Over the course of 10 years I restored it twice, once when I first bought it and then later as a result of being rear ended on my 28th Birthday. Mustangs have been known to have some rust problems. My 1966 was no exception. I had the entire floor and side frame rails replaced. At 1 time during the process the only thing holding the front and back of the car together was the driveshaft and the brake line. The body shop later accidentally cut the brake line. Here is my 1966 convertible shortly after the first restoration was almost completed.

I liked the 1965 Mustang better than the 1966 so I put some 1965 parts on it. I hunted for years to get the 1965 Mustang Styled Steel Wheels. There were some new Old Stock Ford parts still available at the time but they were Gawd-Awful expensive, especially when I was grossing a whopping $160.00 per week. When I was done the 2nd restoration, the only exterior panel that was original to the car being new was the driver’s side door. It seems that you can get anything you want now in reproduction restoration parts.


I later traded my Pick-up for a 1969 Grande that became my daily driver for about 3 years. That had a 302 Windsor engine. My Mom had a 1972 Grande at the time, so for a while we had 3 Mustangs that were all 3 years apart parked in the driveway.

I WANT to get another Mustang again…

But I will buy it already restored.

I went to the Shelby American Auto Club SAAC 33 meet in Millville NJ on 8-17-08.

What an awesome day!

I still cannot believe seeing the Mega $$$ REAL Shelbys and Cobras getting

mashed, thrashed and a few even had some “off roading” all in the name of fun!

I have always been a very big music fan. It has been a very close 2nd interest to trains my whole life. I am the youngest of 3. My oldest sister would let me play her record collection whenever I wanted. I first liked Simon & Garfunkel in the late 60s then had a BRIEF Gilbert O’Sullivan thing. I then went through an Elton John phase (who didn’t) from about age 10 to 13.  Then it was 2 years of Peter Frampton. During my Frampton period I started listening to this new guy from New Jersey named Bruce Springsteen. There was also a DJ named Ed Sciaky on the former Album Oriented Radio station WIOQ FM that played a lot of Bruce. Ed and Bruce were friends. Ed was very big on promoting Bruce in the Philadelphia area. He was and always will be my favorite DJ, having passed on January 29, 2004. I went to my first concert ever on May 26, 1978. My life was truly changed forever that night. It would be my first of almost 30 Bruce concerts in 30+ years since then, including going backstage for one of them. More on that later.


I now have over 5000 songs copied to my hard drive. I just cue up a group of songs in WinAmp and let them play while I work on my trains or whatever...



I don’t trade much anymore since I think I have “enough” to listen to, but this is my live music trading list. Contact me if you want to trade. I believe in quality not quantity. I cannot listen to a poorly recorded show.

Music Trading list

Revised 6-4-06


This list is massively out of date

since I discovered torrents.

I have a lot of concerts that are not listed here and probably never will be.

I don’t even use CDs either. I just upload and trade electronically.

Southside Johnny Videos

These top video was shot at Cooper River Park in Pennsauken NJ on 8-21-07. It was a free concert. Southside was in great form and it was a great night out. My camera is a digital still that does video too. The still photos did not turn out well compared to the videos. I used Windows Movie Maker to make 1 WMV file from 5 songs. It is about 20 minutes long and 71 MB. It opens in Windows Media Player for me.

The A’s were a band in the 1980s that were promoted by 93.3 WMMR. They were most known for their song “A Woman’s Got The Power” which I have always liked. They reunited for a few concerts during Thanksgiving 2007 opening for The Hooters. The Hooters were also promoted by WMMR. They were one of the most successful bands to come out of Philadelphia during that time. It was a great show. I am glad I went. I hope The As continue their touring. I also would like to get the original As music on CD some day.
