I saw his Mustang convertible at MOCC's Mustangs In The Park show a few weeks earlier. It was the first-      round pumpkin with tubes out the sides).
and probably the only-Mustang show he would ever bring it to because it now belongs to his daughter,
Lia. The car is significant not only for what it is-a Mustang-but also for what it means.                                                                                                              …...more next month
The Iacocca Mustang is about as you might expect for one of the oldest restorations out there. Virtually
unchanged from 1974 when Mary presented it to Lee, it's a Dearborn-built, F-code 260 convertible assem-
bled in June 1964 and delivered new to DSO 73, Salt Lake City. It's unknown where Hank found the car or
                                                                                                                                              Non Club Motoring Events
how it wound up in Detroit.
The Mustang is now garage-kept and driven rarely. Before it arrived at Mustangs In The Park in June           September
2006, it had no brakes and had to be repaired before being driven to the show. Had you been cruising          Wednesday 8 - 15th     Veteran Car Club - Tour of Southwest                         Graeme Coote 0417 977 332

By the time you read this Winter will be over and Spring will be in the air. Its time to
dust off the Mustang and head out to blow out the cobwebs. The Social Committee
have a number of exciting events coming up starting with the Supa Golf Family Fun
Day on Sunday Sept 26th. See page 29 for all the details.
I have to say I was spoilt for my first issue with having a mountain of information to
fit in. this issue is a far different story. As I write this I still have several blank pages
to fill. My question to you is What do you want to see? This is ―your‖ magazine, I
only put it together each month. I have a couple of ideas, lets see what you come up
with.

Progress on my Mustang is currently non-existent. I have a severe case of lack of
motivation. Looking at what needs to be done I might have it done in time for my
retirement in 35 years time! Luckily I‘m a patient man.

Searching the internet for Mustang material I have come across a revered nameplate
that Ford is bringing back. What remains to be seen, is will it do the nameplate jus-
tice? Time will tell. I wonder if in thirty years time it will be a winner. Below is a
glimpse of what is in store. Turn the page to read and see more.
