      Ford had already built the cars into production, so they just released them to the public as special editions. They are LX 5.0 cars, Emerald Green over a white interior.

      interesting

      when i was a teenager i worked at a gas station/store and one older guy used to come in all the time with one i always liked it

      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

      I really need to take some better pics but I think mine looks ok. When I was looking for one I was only willing to consider black, silver, dark grays or a Bullitt. Plan to continue to mess with stuff but keep a stock look on the outside.

      I've always loved this picture. It gives me motivation on what I want mine to look like.

Lottery car would be a pair of Boss's. 429 and 302. Burgundy would be my first choice in the 429 and Grabber Blue for the 302, please. Have any pics of your 302?
      The answer is yes but I don't know where so many of my past car photos are . A friend of mine recently sent me a photo of my old '69 Torino 428 Cobra Jet sedan (used to drag race the car in F Stock automatic) parked next to what used to be my '67 427 Corvette coupe (burgundy, black stinger hood and 'off road exhaust' now referred to as the "Money Corvette"). Unfortunately the digital world wasn't available back then. Digital photography has made taking and storing car photos a snap.
      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.

      Oh man. I got to see a red R in person at a park in Seattle once. I remember being star-struck seeing it. Chatted up the owner and got him to do a little burn-out as he left.

      Jedidub's stangalang is very much up my alley. Much props for that ride.

      What is it with VW guys and mustangs? And by mustang I mean, they only own VWs (I can only presume based on your sig) but make a living off of mustang enthusiasts. You're the second VW owner in the period of 4 days who I come to find out works for a fairly large Mustang tuner. The other guy I just met owns a red Golf R. Don't be shy if you're reading this!

      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.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      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.
