yea some of the older special editions were really nice. i'm partial to the '92 "Summer Special". It had custom white leather interior with red piping, a white convertible top, and white 5-spoke wheels.....and a spoiler instead of luggage rack
By the way, the burgundy Boss 429 I missed out on was one of two Boss 429's my friend had at the time. My Boss 302 used to be one of his cars as well . He had an enormous and extremely valuable (multimillion dollar) collection of very desirable cars back then. He and a business associate of his, Sir Victor Gauntlet, also owned 25% of Aston Martin that they eventually sold to Ford . Sadly he sold off the majority of his collection several years ago including the two forty foot long car haulers we used to shuffle some of his cars around in when attending vintage car races and auctions. The other Boss 429 he owned was 'Grabber Blue' - like the Boss 429 pictured above - but it was a little rough paint wise when compared to the burgundy car which was an almost new car.
Nice stuff in this thread. I could only wish that mine would be nice enough to be worthy of inclusion of a thread like this in th efuture. Right now it's painfully stock and the wheels have got to go.
"Like a fine Detroit wine, this vehicle has aged to budgetary perfection"
It's certainly not the best-looking Mustang, but this one will always have a place in my heart because it was so much damn fun. Loud, fast... and that ridiculous paint job got a lot of attention on the street.
"The Sebring is an extraordinary car. Ugly to behold and hateful to drive, it is not cheap, elegant, comfortable, practical, prestigious, clever, economical, luxurious, well designed, well thought out or, if the rental car I drove in America this year is anything to go by, especially well made either." - Jeremy Clarkson
