When the 35th Anniversary Mustang came out, we went stupid. Several folks in our office desperately tried to find ways, short of living in the car or a cardboard box, to get their hands on one of the cars. The GT sporting the scoopsside and hoodas well as the cool honeycomb rear appliqué and other custom appointments were all the rage. Tech Editor Houlahan even went so far as to make the Silver press photo car the background on his work PC. I personally sat in the office and looked longingly at the brochure for several days.
In fact, it got so bad, much time was spent by yours truly and spouse at the Ford dealership seeing what could be done to make one at home in our garage. After she let me down gently by informing me that our next new ride would be a four-door (shudder), I sighed and realized that we would miss a neat piece of Ford marketing and Mustang history.
The nice thing is that you dont have to. Just about everything is out there to make an Anniversary Mustangnot that we are recommending that. But we will say that some of those parts sure look cool on a 98-01. So, with that in mind, we decided to visit Mustang Central and watch as Allen Shepley dressed out a 99 GT with a hot scoop.
